Marvel’s Blade video game shows off concept art following the news the half-man, half-vampire, who is torn between the warm society of the living and the rushing power of the undead, is coming to the gaming world.
The art comes via Arkane Lyon, the developer of the critically acclaimed and award-winning DEATHLOOP and Dishonored series.
The game was announced at the recent Game Awards which is getting released by Bethesda Softworks.
Marvel’s Blade game will take players as Eric Brooks, the legendary Daywalker, to a quarantined section of Paris in the middle of a supernatural emergency.
Vampires have emerged, terrorizing the city of lights and forcing Parisians to shelter inside their homes at night to wait for sunrise.
The game will feature an original story with the studio’s signature immersive gameplay and world-class narrative.
“As a kid of mixed origins, I felt a special connection to Blade—a hero with a dual heritage himself,” said Dinga Bakaba, Game Director, Arkane Lyon when the game was first announced. “The opportunity to put our spin on this character is a dream of mine and a challenge that our team embraces with a passion. We couldn’t be happier to put players in Blade’s boots, as he becomes the champion of my hometown of Paris, one stake at a time.”
“From his trench coat to his iconic sunglasses, Blade is a slick, stylish, and driven character,” said Sebastien Mitton, Co-Creative and Art Director, Arkane Lyon. “This project is the perfect opportunity to push Arkane’s art style into an even more modern and bold territory. The essence of our work lives at the junction of impactful ideas and innovative know-how.”
Details include Arkane Lyon has just begun development on the game.
