Marvel is bringing us a new Blade game to live out our daywalker fantasies

Bethesda Softworks and Arkane Lyon are bringing us a game to sink our teeth into!

What could be better news for Blade’s 50th anniversary than the announcement of a new Blade game? Set in the heart of Paris, we’re taken through a third-person adventure with an original story.

In a quarantined section of Paris, a supernatural emergency has broken out. Vampires have emerged and begun terrorizing the city at night, forcing citizens to seek shelters in their homes to wait for the safety of sunrise.

To announce the game, Geoff Keighley was joined by Dinga Bakaba, Arkane’s studio director. He had this to say about being involved with the game: “As a kid of mixed origins, I felt a special connection to Blade – a hero with a dual heritage himself. 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.”

Likewise, another creator at Arkane Lyon had some words to say, though he wasn’t at the Game Awards: “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.” The trailer didn’t offer much in the way of letting us know how the game would play out, but with the same studio that brought us Deathloop, it seems like we have a game worth keeping an eye on.
