Four years on from its original launch, Ninja Theory’s excellent action-adventure title Hellblade: Senua’s Saga has received a dedicated optimization for the Xbox Series X/S. It adds DirectX raytracing, boasts enriched visuals, and also features a resolution mode, among other bells and whistles. Check out its trailer below.

With little to no fanfare, this definitely comes as quite a surprise- but, as the meme goes, a welcome one. Hellblade was already an excellent-looking game back when it first came out, so the promise of an even more technically impressive version is a salivating one.

With Senua’s Saga: Hellblade 2 currently in the works but a ways off yet, this should serve as a nice appetizer. If you haven’t yet played the first game, this should be the perfect excuse to give it a go. Read our review for the original release to see why you definitely should.

Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice is also available on Xbox One, PS4, PC, and Nintendo Switch.
