In a recent interview that was dug up online, Stellar Blade’s director, Hyung-Tae Kim, spoke about the concept of expanding the game after it has been released. He reiterated that there are no hidden costs associated with Stellar Blade – every outfit is free to earn and won’t require any real-money spending to unlock them. He stressed that the team at ShiftUp is ‘undetermined’ about post-launch DLC, but one thing that is on the cards is New Game+.

Will Stellar Blade Have DLC?

According to Hyung-Tae Kim, ShiftUp is undecided as to whether they’ll develop DLC for Stellar Blade, which is the most anticipated PS5 exclusive right now. It’s topped pre-order charts the world over, and the recent release of the game’s demo only served to stoke the hype train further.

In an interview that was discovered in Ruliweb, Stellar Blade’s director said (translated):

We will be working on a balance patch to prevent inconveniences for those who come in later and to make the game even more enjoyable for those who started playing first. The release of DLC has not been determined, but free updates such as additional costumes are being prepared.

He then said that ‘there is no New Game+ in the released version, so please look forward to it being updated very soon.’

In the recent interview with Ruliweb, Kim gave up a few tidbits about Stellar Blade. He confirmed that Eve is and will remain the only playable character in the game, despite there being other leading characters sharing the limelight. He confirmed that issues that surfaced in the demo will be addressed when the game is released with a comprehensive patch, which is good news for those who suffered a little with the trial of Stellar Blade.

Kim also reiterated that Stellar Blade will be playable in 60 FPS at 1440p resolution, and at 4K, the game is capable of hitting between 50 – 60 FPS.
