More details about the PS5 exclusive
Em Stellar Blade players must save the planet from imminent extinction. Earth was devastated by powerful and threatening creatures — soon after being abandoned by humanity itself, which was forced to migrate to a colony in space.
Players will control Eve, a parachutist who left the space colony and returned to Earth with the intention of saving the planet — or at least what was left of it. As the protagonist defeats one by one of the NA:TI, she also pieces together the mysteries of the past, while exploring the ruins of human civilization and realizing that her mission will not be easy at all.
Stellar Blade monsters were created using an artisanal process
Recently, the Shift Up studio also released some images of the NA creation process: I had, the enemies that Eve will face during her journey of Stellar Blade. Creature designers first sculpt characters in clay by hand before converting them for the game, using technologies like high-density 3D scanning — among other techniques.
“Our 3D scanning process ensures that characters in Project EVE explode with distinct realism”, explained the CEO of Shift Up, Hyung-Tae Kim. An artisanal process that, without a doubt, gave the “sauce” to the game’s enemies, right?
Stellar Blade will have a bold look on PS5.
The controversy surrounding Stellar Blade
While the exclusive PS5 game has won many fans, the project has also sparked debate on social media since it was presented. The title from South Korean studio Shift Up is being accused of being “too sexy” in some internet discussions.
The reason for the criticism is the hypersexualization of some characters in the game, especially the protagonist Eve. The warrior was created based on 3D images of South Korean model Shin Jae-eun, who even appeared in a capture video.
