Ninja Theory’s Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice has recently been patched for Xbox Series X/S, which enables greater visual fidelity and frame-rates on the upgraded console. Our latest video highlights many of these differences, check it out below.
Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice on Xbox Series X runs at a dynamic 4K with a framerate target of 60 fps in the FPS Resolution mode. The enriched visuals mode targets dynamic 4K with a frame cap of 30 fps with ray-tracing reflections. Both modes stick pretty close to the performance targets in our suite of tests. This is a stark difference from the Xbox One X version, which remains locked to a 30 fps target regardless of FPS Resolution or Enriched Visuals mode.
There are improvements to the load times as well. In our tests, the Xbox Series X was able to load into the game in just over 10 seconds, while the Xbox One X took 26 seconds for the same. Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice still looks gorgeous with all of its graphical bells and whistles, and we can only imagine the level of visual fidelity that Ninja Theory could achieve with Senua’s Saga: Hellblade 2.
