Stellar Blade Director Addresses Input Lag Concerns

Many Stellar Blade players have noticed a delay between pressing buttons for actions like perfect parries or dodges and seeing them executed on screen. Kim Hyung-tae explained in an interview with 4Gamer that this delay is actually part of the game's design to maintain smooth animations.

According to Kim, the skill is activated the moment the button is pressed, even though the animation may take some time to play out. He stated, "In Stellar Blade, there is about a 0.5 second lag between the moment you press the button and the moment the skill is visible on-screen."

This deliberate choice was made to ensure that the character's movements align with the game's animation style. While some players may find it challenging, the feedback from the community will determine if any adjustments will be made in the future.

For those looking for a rewarding challenge in a sci-fi setting, Stellar Blade offers a unique experience that blends elements of the Souls-like genre with refined character action gameplay. With its day one patch addressing input times for basic attacks and blocking, the game continues to evolve based on player feedback.
