- The meaning of Stellar Blade
- Mankind’s last remaining city on Earth, Xion
- Action-packed battles against fierce bosses
The September 2022 State of Play stream revealed a new trailer for Project Eve. But that's not the only new thing as it has also received a newer official title. The new game shall now be known as Stellar Blade, and it is primed for release as a PS5 console exclusive title in 2023.
The Korean game project was first revealed in 2019, but it was not until the September 2021 PlayStation Showcase that the game's promotion starts getting into gear. This new trailer expands further from the latter by showing more key story characters other than Eve.
The former Project Eve garnered interest as the game aims to be an action RPG in a similar fashion to NieR: Automata and God of War. Top Korean creators like the artist Kim Hyung Tae (who also heads this game's development team) and composer Park “ESTi” Jinbae have gathered to produce this new game.
You can find the new trailer for Stellar Blade—which features Korean voiceovers and English subtitles—and Kim Hyung Tae's notes from the latest PlayStation.Blog post right below.
This is our second encounter since the PlayStation Showcase back in September 2021. I am beyond ecstatic to reveal the official name for our game, previously called Project Eve, and share new trailer unveiling new characters and their roles in this story.
And I present to you the official title that encompasses Eve’s stylish action and her long and winding adventure…
The meaning of Stellar Blade
The title is a combination of “Stellar,” which signifies stars in Latin, and “Blade,” which defines Eve’s existence.
Where the point of that blade will lead you to, that’s entirely up to you.
Mankind’s last remaining city on Earth, Xion
Eve and her comrades land on the surface to reclaim the extinct Earth and cross paths with a survivor named Adam. Eve is then led by Adam to the last surviving city, Xion, where she meets the elder of the town Orcal and is told many stories. In order to serve her mission to save Earth, Eve develops close relationships with the key members of Xion and contributes to rebuilding the city.
On a mission to save Earth from the NA:tive, Eve is also faced with helping out the citizens of Xion. Whether you will help the survivors or not, depends purely on your decision as the player.
Action-packed battles against fierce bosses
Stellar Blade introduces action combat that require deflecting and evading the NA:tives’ attack at a precise timing that will also connect to combos and unique skills. Throughout the game, you will arm yourself with unique Beta Skills and intense Burst Skills, which I promise will be pleasing to the eye.
Brace yourselves… Bosses’ strengths are on a completely different level compared to the common NA:tives, offering a challenging and strategic combat encounter.
All these actions will allow you to further immerse yourself into the story and understand Eve’s emotions.
Get ready to embark on a journey with our powerful protagonist, Eve!
Thank you for your continued support and interest.
