Prepare to embark on an unforgettable journey through an intense action RPG with adventurous exploration.

Stray Blade is an Action RPG where you play a rogue Adventurer exploring the ancient Valley of Acrea with your companion, the Xhinnon wolf Boji. Unveil the history of the forgotten valley and master the powers of the three Acrean Metals to restore balance to this war-torn land.

Prove yourself in this action RPG and master intense combat while exploring the ancient ruins of a mysterious civilization. Legends tell of Acrea the Lost Valley, a wild and overgrown place but unmistakably powerful. You found this forgotten land yet died. Time passes, and miraculously you are brought back to life. The price you pay: You are bound to this land.

Regain your freedom and embark on the quest of restoring balance in this ravaged and war-torn place guided by your trusty companion, Boji. Explore towering throne rooms of giant god-kings and long-lost cities. As you uncover their secrets, prepare to face even deadlier foes. Get ready to explore a world that is constantly altered by your discoveries and the waging forces! Set off for an unforgettable adventure.


When Stray Blade was announced during Gamescom 2021 it was scheduled for "next year" meaning the target launch was somewhere in 2022, however during today's showcase 505 Games revealed the game is now planned for 2023.

Interested fans can still apply to the private PC beta for a chance to explore the ancient Valley of Acrea before anyone else. 

Key Features:

  • Embark on an unforgettable journey and discover the story of Acrea and its ancient legacy. Reveal the whole history that turned the peaceful valley into a place of war, death, and tales that have been passed down by the world’s greatest dynasties for centuries. Use this knowledge to destroy the relics of the past and restore peace in the war-torn valley.
  • The hyper-responsive combat system allows quick reactions and precise attacks to fully control the flow of battle. Stray Blade merges strategic anticipation of enemy attacks with split-second blade-to-blade reactions — the High Noon of melee weapon combat.
  • Change is part of your journey where your actions leave a mark in the world. Revisit the places of a former victory and experience the changes you brought to the world. But beware! Your actions will lead to even greater challenges. Time keeps moving forward even if you die and this can result in a unique set of circumstances you could be forced to deal with.
  • Acrea’s colourful world ranges from overgrown city ruins to frozen caves and winding canyons. Together with your companion, explore the deepest corners of an ever-changing world bristling with adventure. Find rare materials, recipes, weapons, treasure, powerful abilities, and epic surprises.
  • One of Stray Blade’s pillars is exhilarating exploration, which is elevated by adding Metroidvania elements with intense Souls-like combat. Traversing the world of Stray Blade will reward you with rare crafting materials and blueprints, but you will also gain access to secret passages through the ever-changing landscape. These secret passages will give you options when approaching your objectives. Specific abilities will allow you to backtrack and explore areas that you were not able to explore previously.

Stray Blade is coming to PS5, Xbox Series X|S and PC (Steam - Epic Games Store) in 2023.
