Publisher Grindstone and developer Triple Hill Interactive have announced Die by the Blade, a deadly sword fighting action game that blends 1vs1 combat with action adventure gameplay elements. Die by the Blade is planned for release on PC as well as PlayStation and Xbox consoles in 2021 and will launch as a Kickstarter campaign in October 2020.
Die by the Blade draws inspiration from legendary combat games like Bushido Blade, Way of the Samurai and Dark Souls as well as the epic stand-offs in Ghost of Tsushima. Set in a visually stunning ‘Samuraipunk’ vision of Japan, Die by the Blade fuses techpunk visuals and japanese-inspired aesthetics to create the perfect backdrop for the ancient art of sword fighting. Players must take up their sword and face off against deadly opponents, where the slightest mistake will seal your fate. Become a master of your craft and fight to the death with other players in tense, fast paced multiplayer matches or slash through tough AI enemies in the singleplayer campaign.
By utilising a One-Hit-Kill combat system, Die by the Blade leaves no room for mistakes. By removing the concepts of health bars and health points, the game is built on a realistic battle system creating a sense of real tension as one error by the player could result in instant death. This system emphasizes the need for weapon positioning, parrying and counter moves to defend against enemy attacks before delivering a clean hit to any vital area of your opponent, causing instant death. Players must use the One-Hit-Kill system to learn from their mistakes and mount devastating comebacks to claim victory.
Die by the Blade is being developed by Slovak Republic developer Triple Hill Interactive and published by Grindstone and is scheduled for a 2021 release for PC as well as PlayStation and Xbox consoles. Fans can wishlist the game on Steam by visiting the official page here.
