Ninja Theory has announced that Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice will launch for PS4 and PC on the 8th of August.
Developed by the makers of Heavenly Sword, Enslaved: Odyssey to the West, and DmC: Devil May Cry, Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice tells the story of Senua, a traumatised Celtic warrior journeying into the Viking underworld of hel. Supported by Wellcome and created in collaboration with neuroscientists and people who experience psychosis, Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice will pull players deep into Senua’s mind.
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.
Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice will be available for $29.99/€29.99/£24.99. Those pre-ordering for PS4 will receive an exclusive Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice Dynamic Theme that depicts the iconic burning tree scene from the game. Those pre-ordering on PC will receive an exclusive digital comic short, Hellblade: Senua’s Song.
