Blade of Darkness: Classics released as an HD update for Xbox

Blade of Darkness gets even sharper with an HD update and rushes to Xbox and PlayStation.

A reimagining of the classic fantasy action-adventure, Blade of Darkness is making its way to Xbox and Playstation today.

Formerly known as Severance: Blade of Darkness in some regions, the modern version will get an HD treatment on PC and soon on Nintendo Switch.

Get ready for a classic tale of sword and sorcery and venture out on all systems.

This is Blade of Darkness

Chaos grips the world. The central kingdoms are no longer safe, for the king’s knights cannot withstand the dangers that descend on the realms. Orcs swarm the streets and strange beasts seek prey in the darkness.

Hope is in the legends, for Ianna, the mother of all living beings, once gave a mighty sword to a hero to brave the abyss and defeat evil. But these legends are now history. The world needs a new champion to wield the blade and crush the enemy…this time for good.

Choose one of four heroes and defeat evil in a game that some call the father of all Souls-like titles (the original version predated Demon’s Souls by 8 years).

Experience the nostalgia or see how video game history was forged. Experience the original gameplay and story with all the features that modern gamers have become accustomed to over the years. These include upscaled textures, improved anti-aliasing, overhauled camera and gamepad support.
