Today, February 15th, global video game publisher 505 Games and developer Point Blank Games unveil the official release date for Stray Blade, the fantasy action-adventure with a fresh approach to intense combat.

Stray Blade’s well-balanced mix of alluring narrative and challenging combat rewards adaptable, curious adventurers. Point Blank Games  focuses primarily on the action thanks to the hyper-responsive combat system that allows quick reactions and precise attacks to fully control the flow of battle. Death is inevitable but not a hindrance, with an accessible approach providing explicit in-game indicators for crucial combat elements, and an overall structure that minimizes frustration. Accompanied by the Xhinnon wolf Boji, traverse the ancient land of Acrea and discover the cause of its demise centuries ago. Build upon that companionship and rely on each other’s talent and skills to survive. Call upon an arsenal of weapons, or craft them out of surrounding resources to ensure the next battle ends in triumph. Take a moment to bask in the serene fantasy environments hinting at a life that once was in this mysterious yet adrenaline-filled adventure.

And for those who want to be among the first ones to explore Acrea, there is still the chance to sign up to the closed beta for PC here:
