Now this is one heck of a surprise! Xbox-owned developer Arkane Lyon is officially making a Marvel's Blade game. We heard rumblings of Arkane showing up at The Game Awards, but we didn't expect this!

Anyway, the team's debut trailer is right there up above, and it certainly delivers on the hype. We don't know much about platforms yet and whether this is an Xbox exclusive or not — it appears quite early in development — but here's some more information on what to expect:

"Marvel’s Blade game will take players to a quarantined section of Paris in the middle of a supernatural emergency. Vampires have emerged, terrorizing the city of lights and forcing Parisians to shelter inside their homes at night to wait for sunrise.

In Marvel’s Blade, Eric Brooks is the legendary Daywalker, half-man, half-vampire torn between the warm society of the living and the rushing power of the undead. From Bethesda and Arkane Lyon, the studio that brought you Dishonored and “DEATHLOOP”, Marvel’s Blade is a mature, single-player, third-person game set in the heart of Paris, now in development in collaboration with Marvel Games."

Tell us if this is the biggest TGA 2023 surprise down below. We reckon it could be!
