Project Eve by ShiftUp is now Stellar Blade

Stellar Blade, originally known as Project Eve, was given a better look by developer ShiftUp on Tuesday during Sony's State of Play event. The game's violent monster gameplay and post-apocalyptic plot are now more clearly visible than when we last saw it at a State of Play in 2021.


In Stellar Blade, the main character Eve must kill a lot of flesh-and-blood creatures in an effort to defend Xion, the final city on Earth.


The title is a combination of “Stellar,” which signifies stars in Latin, and “Blade,” which defines Eve’s existence.


Where the point of that blade will lead you to, that’s entirely up to you.

Eve and her comrades land on the surface to reclaim the extinct Earth and cross paths with a survivor named Adam. Eve is then led by Adam to the last surviving city, Xion, where she meets the elder of the town Orcal and is told many stories. In order to serve her mission to save Earth, Eve develops close relationships with the key members of Xion and contributes to rebuilding the city.


On a mission to save Earth from the NA:tive, Eve is also faced with helping out the citizens of Xion. Whether you will help the survivors or not, depends purely on your decision as the player.


Stellar Blade's combat, according to ShiftUp, will involve a combination of combos, evasion, and timing, as well as strong and showy skills that are "pleasant to the sight."

In 2023, Stellar Blade is anticipated to launch on PlayStation 5.
