Ninja Theory has just dropped a stunning new trailer for Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice in preparation for its August 8th launch. It’s a proper put your headphones in and bask trailer, exploring the murky ethereal threats out to get Senua. In addition to this, Ninja Theory has also announced the high-end PC features that make the PC version of Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice the definitive edition.
PC players will be able to take advantage of an uncapped frame rate, 4K resolution support and 21:9 ultra widescreen compatibility. That ticks all the right boxes, all that’s left now is to hope Hellblade runs great on PC. The official minimum system requirements are out and they’re pretty demanding, so be sure to check those out before you lay down some cash.
PlayStation 4 Pro owners will also be getting some enhancements. They’ll have the choice between playing at an enhanced resolution or a locked 60 frames per second. That’s good news for 1080p TV owners; too few developers opt to go down the improved frame rate route.
It seems as if Hellblade is flying totally under the radar right now, yet everything Ninja Theory has shown looks top tier. It’s a budget $29.99/€29.99/£24.99 release with AAA production values, evident in the gorgeous visuals and standout voice work. Their track record, too, speaks for itself, having developed DmC: Devil May Cry, Enslaved: Odyssey to the West and Heavenly Sword. Hellblade looks to tackle an altogether darker subject matter, embarking on a journey through a twisted underworld composed of Senua’s own psychotic manifestations of her reality and state of mind.
Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice is out on August 8th for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
