Kwalee and developers Grindstone and Triple Hill Interactive have announced that Die by the Blade will launch on PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series, Xbox One, and PC on November 3.
A Nintendo Switch version of the game is also in the works but won’t be released until later in 2023. Die by the Blade is a brutal sword fighting game with dynamic one-hit combat mechanics. It draws inspiration from titles such as Dark Souls, Bushido Blade, and Way of the Samurai. You can watch the new gameplay trailer and learn more about it below.
Die by the Blade is a 1v1 weapons-focused fighter where the difference between victory and death can amount to a single strike of the blade. Carve your path through this samurai-punk world with nothing but your trusty weapon by your side in the story-driven single-player campaign or crush your friends in local or online multiplayer. Looking for more of a challenge? Test your skills against unknown warriors in online ranked matches and prove that you are the indisputable champion.
In Die by the Blade, there are no health bars, so you can’t afford to let your guard down. The one-hit kill system leaves no room for error. If you want to survive, you’ll need to master the parrying mechanic, memorise the combos for your chosen weapon, and sharpen your reflexes. The victor of any battle could be decided in a matter of seconds, so be prepared for multiple quick bouts against your opponents.
Will you have what it takes to become a master samurai? Or will you fall like countless others before you?
