While we await the upcoming return of Blade to screens in 2025, Arkane Lyon (the dev behind Redfall) is set to bring The Daywalker his own video game with the third-person action game, Marvel’s Blade. News is still forthcoming for the game, including a release date.
“In honor of Blade‘s 50th anniversary, we have found the perfect match for the Daywalker in Arkane Lyon, a studio of uncompromising artists who continually push the boundaries of game design and innovation,” said Marvel Games vice president and creative director Bill Rosemann in a press release. “In addition to their award-winning talent, it’s their personal passion and bold vision for our half-human, half-vampire iconoclast that makes this collaboration a perfect fit.”
“As a kid of mixed origins, I felt a special connection to Blade—a hero with a dual heritage himself,” says Arkane Studios Lyon game director Dinga Bakaba at The Game Awards. “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.”
Marvel’s Blade will be set in 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.
