Ninja Theory Reveals 'Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice' Release Date Along With New Trailer
Ninja Theory has been working on Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice for a while now and it appears that it finally has a release date. The developer officially revealed its launch date along with a new trailer titled "Ragnarok". The game is coming to the PC and PS4 on Aug. 8, 2017, and will star Senua as she journeys in the Viking underworld, hel. Fans already know that the studio working on the game has made great action games in the past.
Although it might look like a typical dark fantasy action game, Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice reportedly holds a lot of unique and complex ideas. Game Rant notes that Ninja Theory has worked with a UK-based foundation that champions health and wellness. The game will apparently feature a realistic depiction of mental illness and trauma suffered by an individual. It is evident that the game developer wanted to deliver as much realism as it possibly can.
A brief description of Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice says, "it is the story of Senua, a traumatized Celtic warrior journeying to the Viking underworld of hel." The game was "created in collaboration with neuroscientists and people who experience psychosis," the description added. Ninja Theory describes its gameplay mechanics as tied to themes of mental illness in both literal and figurative ways. The game studio obviously went above and beyond to deliver these details through its graphics and motion-captured facial expressions.
Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice began its development three years ago and was announced during Gamescom 2014. The game was originally just called Hellblade and was based on a mix of Norse and Celtic mythology, according to VG24/7. The game will be a digital-only release for the PC and PS4 and is described to be a mid-size game. The game will also be priced appropriately but still deliver AAA quality as expected from Ninja Theory.
Sony has gained another console-exclusive since Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice will only release for the PS4. Ninja Theory's latest title will cost $24.99 on both PC and PS4. Recent news has indicated that the Japanese gaming company has plans to attract more gamers to purchase the PlayStation 4. It certainly has a large library of games both released and incoming that might interest consumers to join Sony's bandwagon.
