We still have a couple of years before we get Mahershala Ali’s Blade film. But that doesn’t mean there aren’t any other adventures with everyone’s favorite dhampir that could happen sooner rather than later. The Game Awards 2023 gave gamers lots of announcements to enjoy… almost to the point of being overwhelming. Some of them sparked more joy and curiosity than others, like the Hideo Kojima and Jordan Peele horror game collaboration. Another game that fans cannot wait to get their hands on is Marvel’s Blade by Arkane Studios, Xbox, and Bethesda, which we saw in an announcement trailer.
The clip is short because the game is still in its early stages of development. But it is clear that Marvel’s Blade is taking place in France because, well, we hear French in the trailer. Maybe he will see Daryl Dixon there and they can fight undead beings together. (I am kidding. Sort of. But someone write that fanfic please.)
Here’s the game synopsis of Marvel’s Blade to give you a little more context:
In Marvel’s Blade, Eric Brooks is the legendary Daywalker, half-man, half-vampire torn between the warm society of the living and the rushing power of the undead. From Bethesda and Arkane Lyon, the studio that brought you Dishonored and “DEATHLOOP”, Marvel’s Blade is a mature, single-player, third-person game set in the heart of Paris, now in development in collaboration with Marvel Games.
Very interesting. Arkane pulled a fast one on fans who were sure the announcement would be for Dishonored 3. Sometimes, that “leaked information” is not so solid after all. But I digress…
What Is the Release Date for Marvel’s Blade Video Game?
Of course, we do not know the release date for this game quite yet but at least we know it exists. No matter what, we are totally down to see what horrors the City of Love will offer Blade.
