The recent Stellar Blade demo has surprised many with its unexpected gameplay style. Rather than resembling Bayonetta or Devil May Cry, as fans anticipated, this PS5 exclusive actually bears a striking resemblance to Dark Souls. The developers at Shift Up have intentionally designed the difficulty of this game. However, they have also included options to provide a slightly easier experience for players who may require it.

In a recent interview on the PlayStation Blog, director Kim Hyung Tae and technical director Lee Dong Gi discuss the design philosophy behind Stellar Blade. According to them, the game aims to provide an enjoyable action experience for all players. However, the studio also wanted to challenge players beyond simply relying on aggressive attacks and combos.

The developers emphasize the significance of closely observing enemy movements and understanding the combat flow in order to respond effectively. By investing in the skill tree, you can improve your skills as the game progresses. Additionally, equipping powerful items like the exospine and gear will provide further boosts to your abilities. Players must carefully consider their battle style, as each piece of equipment offers unique performance. Whether they prefer a speed-focused approach to overpower enemies, an aggressive strategy to overwhelm them, or a cautious approach to navigate through enemy attacks, the choice is crucial.

Featuring a default mode that seems pretty standard, players have the flexibility to easily tweak the difficulty and take advantage of a story mode that offers action assistance whenever necessary. The setting in question effectively hampers an adversary’s mobility, granting you ample opportunity to familiarize yourself with its assault strategies. Additionally, it conveniently provides on-screen cues to indicate the optimal moments for executing parries and evasive maneuvers. “This feature enhances the game’s accessibility and enjoyment, appealing even to those who typically avoid action games.”

Stellar Blade also has a hard mode in store for players, adding an extra layer of challenge. Additionally, the developers have announced that a New Game+ mode will be released after the game’s launch, completely free of charge. As an added bonus, players can look forward to new outfits for the game’s protagonist, Eve. Are you committed to playing on the standard difficulty mode, or are you open to using Action Assist when faced with challenges? We would greatly appreciate your feedback in the comments section.

In order to prevent the local sushi bar from going out of business, you’ll have to lend a hand to the local townsfolk and engage in a range of activities to boost trade.
