It’s been a long time coming, but it’s almost here- Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice, the new action title from developers Ninja Theory, will be releasing this year, on August 8, for PC and PS4. The game, which was originally announced at Gamescom 2014, has been a very long wait- but at last, players will be able to play it.
The game’s story takes from Celtic and Norse mythologies, but also adds a psychological story into the mix. It will be tackling some sensitive psychological problems and issues, and we can only hope that the game handles them delicately and with tact.
For now, however, Ninja Theory is celebrating the impending release of the game. “We’re happy to announce Hellblade’s release date after 3 years of open and independent development. Hellblade has been all about trying to rejuvenate the space between ‘indie’ and AAA, where games can be creatively rich but still boast AAA quality. At around half the length of a similar AAA game and half the price, we think Hellblade will give players a unique AAA quality experience at a fair price,” said Tameem Antoniades, Ninja Theory Co-founder and Chief Creative Ninja.
