Ninja Theory’s Hellblade, their promising character action game that promises to delve deep into psychological issues such as clinical depression, was originally anticipated to launch last year- but of course, that never ended up happening. The game will now be launching this year, it has been confirmed. What’s more, it will be launching on PC and PlayStation 4 simultaneously– the game’s launch on other platforms had previously been a bit nebulous, with only an initial PS4 launch ever officially being confirmed.
Hellblade promises to be something special- Ninja Theory games always play well, but it will probably be the subject matter of the game, which sees the character descending into a hellish world which is, in fact, a manifestation of her mental illnesses, which will make it stand out. If Ninja Theory manage to tackle the matter correctly and sensitively, they will have made a very meaningful game in the end.
