Publisher Grindstone and developers Triple Hill Interactive and Toko Midori have announced that the Kickstarter campaign for the highly anticipated one-hit-kill sword fighting game Die by the Blade is now live!
Die by the Blade is scheduled for a 2021 release for PC and consoles. With many pledge levels to choose from with fantastic game inspired rewards available, fans can get involved, become backers and in turn help shape the future of this highly anticipated, spiritual successor to some of the best classic sword fighting games ever released.
Drawing inspiration from legendary combat games like Bushido Blade and Way of the Samurai, Die by the Blade is a one-hit-kill sword fighting action game where players must take up their weapons and face off against deadly opponents. Choose your character, select your blade and engage in 1 vs 1 combat where the slightest mistake could seal your fate. Become a master of your craft and fight to the death with other players in tense, fast paced multiplayer matches or slash through tough AI enemies in the thrilling single player campaign.
Die by the Blade has been in development for some time, so the game will definitely launch next year under the current development plan and budget. However, with the support of the fans and the community, a successful Kickstarter campaign will further elevate Die by the Blade to an exceptional game, whilst delivering a unique gameplay experience.
The money raised through Kickstarter will be used to expand on the current gameplay experience with higher quality animations using motion capture technology, expand the character roster and add in even more weapons. If the campaign hits the stretch goals, then additional exciting content could be added like ranged weapons and different combat styles.
