After announcing it for PS4, Ninja Theory’s Hellblade will also be heading to the PC according to studio head Tameem Antoniades in a conversation with PC Gamer. Antoniades also felt mods would be possible and it could feature 4K resolution support.
“I think PC offers us a level of freedom that we haven’t had before,” he said. “We’re looking at everything we do on this project and figuring out better ways of doing things compared to how the traditional AAA console model works.
“And consoles are following suit with PC, but I think they’re years behind what things like Steam are doing.”
The good news is that PC players curious about Hellblade might have a beta to look forward to enroute to its release. “If we want to do an open beta right now, it’s a little bit trickier to do that [on consoles]than on PC. Play-testing is a huge thing for us.
“Usability testing, getting people hands-on to try things out, get feedback, then roll that back in and improve the game…it’s always been essential for us to do that. Not every publisher has let us, because of the secrecy that goes into consoles and publisher-based businesses.”
