Arkane Lyon has announced Blade, a game based on the popular Marvel comic book.
“As a kid of mixed origins, I felt a special connection to Blade – a hero with a dual heritage himself,” game director Dinga Bakaba said on an Xbox Wire blog post.
“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.”
“From his trench coat to his iconic sunglasses, Blade is a slick, stylish, and driven character,” added co-creative and art director Sebastien Mitton.
“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.”
Arkane Lyon’s last game was the critically acclaimed 2021 shooter Deathloop. Before that, the developer helped on the Wolfenstein games with Machine Games, and developer Dishonored 2 and Dishonored: Death of the Outsider.
