Stellar Blade Main Story Will be 25 Hours; 30-50 Hours for All Content

In a recent interview with Korean outlet RULIWEB, the CEO of ShiftUp announced the reason behind Stellar Blade‘s delay, as well as the estimated playtime that players can expect from the title. According to the producer, the reason for the game’s delay was due to additional polishing that was necessary, and that the main story will require around 25 hours to be completed, while 100% completion can take from 30 to 50 hours.

You can view a translation of his comment below:

Interviewer: I understand that the reason for the release being slightly later than originally expected was that several issues were pointed out during Sony’s inspection process. I’m curious as to what content was added to improve this, and what is the total amount of playtime for the game.

Kim Hyeong-tae: It is not that issues were discovered during the inspection process, but the release was delayed a bit due to the polishing process. Play time is expected to be about 25 hours for the main story and 30 to 50 hours for all the collection elements.

In Stellar Blade, the enemy called Naytiba makes humanity flee to an off-world colony. The protagonist, Eve, is a member of the seventh airborne squad; she’s trying to save the planet by defeating the elder Naytiba. Her companions are Adam from Earth and Lily. Artemis is a member of the fifth airborne squad and upgrades Eve’s equipment throughout the game.

Xion is a city built under the Wasteland by humanity’s last survivors. Eve is called Angel by the residents, being both feared and in awe by others, though many will come to trust her throughout the game. You can camp around the world to upgrade her capabilities and heal. Xion is connected to semi-open world areas called the Wasteland and the Great Desert, which encourage exploration. You can gather Hyper Cells; Eve finds these to restore Xion to its former state of glory.

Other items include Exospines and Gears, which are used to acquire SP EXP and new skills, as well as cosmetics like accessories, costumes, and hairstyles. Moreover, this adventure’s soundtrack will be almost entirely comprised of choruses and vocals.

Stellar Blade will be released for PlayStation 5 on April 26, 2024.
