Sony confirms that Stellar Blade is now available for pre-order in both digital and physical formats for PlayStation 5. Let’s take a look at its editions.
Of all the games that will be hitting stores this year, 2024, there are some that caught our eye because of their visual achievements, thanks to frenetic trailers and dazzling action scenes. One of them is Stellar Blade, developed by the Koreans at Shift Up.
It was one of the games present in the State of Play on January 31st (summary here), and it also represents one of the most interesting exclusives for PlayStation this year.
Stellar Blade will also be released on PC at a later date, but it will first arrive on PS5. It will be on April 26th, with different digital editions and physical release.
It is a third-person action role-playing game that puts us in the shoes of Eve. This relentless warrior will have to save the planet Earth from a dangerous alien race, with the aim of returning it to the humans.
The director of Stellar Blade, Hyung Tae Kim, has confirmed the estimated duration of the game, as well as inspirations from classics of the genre, such as Nier Automata, Bayonetta, or Sekiro.
