Stray Blade is an upcoming action RPG in which you play as The Adventurer, a wandering warrior seeking to restore balance to a war-torn world. In this venture, you will be joined by the Xhinnon wolf, Boji, a wise-cracking little fellow who will serve as guide and companion.

Developed by Point Blank Games, Stray Blade features a colourful aesthetic and precise, reflex-based combat that we think looks like a good bit of fun. It's coming to PS5 in 2023, and so long as it runs at a consistent 60fps, it looks like it will be one worth keeping an eye on.
