Chinese video game development studios never cease to amaze the West. One of the games that most attracted the attention of the PlayStation Showcase 2023 was precisely a Chinese one, Phantom Blade Zero, which had amazing gameplay and will have many more features, but will it be exclusive to PlayStation on consoles?
Soulframe Liang, founder and CEO of the developer S-Game, explained that Phantom Blade Zero’s combat will not be soulslike, but hack ‘n’slash, apart from the fact that it will have kung-fu (kungfupunk), dark fantasy and RPG details. .
The study mentions that it is the game that he always wanted to make and defined it as the “spiritual rebirth of the original Rainblood”, the first game he worked on.

Phantom Blade Zero will have a long duration, multiplayer and a robust endgame
The studio made it clear that all combat scenes are “real” and captured in-game. However, he explained that he used a more cinematographic camera or angle and that the final game will have a broader perspective to avoid dizziness.
Phantom Blade Zero will have “super complex and fast combos”, but it will be easy to execute them thanks to 2 command chains that players can customize, although he warned that it will not be icing on the cake, since doing it correctly will require skill and precise timing (dodging, counter).
In case you missed it: all of these games were announced at the PlayStation Showcase 2023.
Additionally, it was confirmed that Phantom Blade Zero will have a semi-open world developed on Unreal Engine 5.
Best of all for solo campaign lovers, the title will offer a main story mode that will require 30-40 hours to complete.
As if that were not enough, when the player finishes the main campaign mode, they will be able to find endgame content, which includes multiplayer dungeons, as well as a Boss Rush mode, rogue-like abysses and more.
Will Phantom Blade Zero be exclusive to PlayStation?
It is important to mention that Phantom Blade Zero was revealed at PlayStation Showcase 2023 and it was mentioned that it would be coming to PlayStation 5, but it is also known that it will be coming to PC. Regarding exclusivity, the studio confirmed that at the moment “there is no exclusivity with any platform”, according to the question and answer section on the project’s official Discord (via MP1st).
Unfortunately, the concept of the game began planning in 2017, but formal development began in early 2022, so the release date is still a long way off.
