It has been announced that Arkane Lyon is producing a game based on superhero comics about Blade, a half-human, half-vampire who takes revenge on bloodsuckers for the death of his mother.
The project is called Marvel’s Blade and is a third-person adult single-player action-adventure with an original story. Target platforms and release dates are not announced.
The events of Marvel’s Blade will take place amidst a certain supernatural phenomenon in the quarantine zone of Paris. Vampires terrorize the city, forcing residents to hide in their homes at night and wait for the sunrise.
According to Deathloop director Dinga Bakaba, releasing this game was his dream: “We’re more excited than ever to bring players the feel of Blade as he reclaims my hometown of Paris, one piece at a time.”.
Sebastien Mitton, art director and co-creative director of Arkane Lyon, thinks about Marvel’s Blade “A great opportunity to show how modern and bold Arkane’s art style can be”.
Marvel’s Blade is not the only Bethesda Softworks project based on the famous franchise. The Swedish studio MachineGames (Wolfenstein) is working on a game about the adventures of Indiana Jones, which was already announced in 2021.
