Hellblade: Senua‘s Sacrifice finally launches today. Senua’s dark journey is only just beginning though, so beware the nightmares of the mind.
After a long and harrowing journey, Ninja Theory has finally released their latest epic on PS4 and the PC. The team at Ninja Theory worked hard on Hellblade, and we have been able to follow this work in the form of Developers Diaries.
We’re no strangers to Hellblade, with constant coverage, and following the game incredibly closely so it’s nice to see a game come together over time. The game is absolutely stunning. With the recent announcement of a Photo Mode, capturing the games nuanced beauty should be an easy task.
It’s interesting to see in the recently released Dev Dairy (shown below), just how well the game has come together. It’s particularly more interesting to see a game go from nothing to a full game in just over two minutes.
It was also discovered that Hellblade has a controversial new feature with a non-optional “Perma-death” system in place. If players die too many times, their data will be erased, and players will have to start all over from the beginning. It’s sort of a real “Git Gud” feature. Although we doubt many people will experience it. Thanks to BritishGaming on twitter, we have some in game shots of what the feature looks like being explained ingame.
Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice is out now for PS4 and PC for half the price of a traditional game at $29.99.
