Stellar Blade gets playable demo in March

Stellar Blade

Publisher Sony Interactive Entertainment and developer SHIFTUP have announced Stellar Blade is finally getting a playable demo this week.

The new Stellar Blade demo comes not long after it was prematurely released in error, though it will be officially available on March 29th.

Fans can expect the new demo to include a big portion of the game’s first area, all the way up to its first boss fight, and save data will transfer to the full game.

Here’s a rundown on the demo, plus a new trailer:

The demo takes place from the very beginning of the game when Eve, a member of the 7th Airborne Squad is sent to Earth on a mission to reclaim the planet from the Naytiba, up to the first boss fight. This first stage will include the tutorial phase to help you familiarize yourself with basic combat features as you explore post-war Eidos 7, a human city now infested by the Naytiba, giving you an early grasp of gameplay mechanics that will serve you throughout the game’s story.

We also have a little surprise included for players who complete the first stage.

From the smooth 60fps combat to the haptics, you’ll feel through the DualSense wireless controller, there are various charms of the game that you can only confidently appreciate through hands-on experience.

For those who complete the demo stage, you can carry over your save data when the full game releases on April 26, starting from the last checkpoint. Please note that save data must be stored on your PS5 system.

The Stellar Blade demo will be available starting Friday, March 29 from 7am PDT / 2pm GMT.

Alongside the demo, the full game will feature the following language options:

  • Voice Over: Korean, English, French, Italian, German, Spanish, Brazilian Portuguese, Latin Spanish.
  • Text: Korean, English (US), French, Italian, German, Spanish, Danish, Dutch, Finnish, Norwegian, Polish, Portuguese, Russian, Swedish, Arabic, Turkish, Thai, Japanese, Simplified Chinese, Traditional Chinese.

Stellar Blade is set to launch for PlayStation 5 on April 26th.
