Ninja Theory’s Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice received some particularly good looking gameplay footage a few days ago. The developer has now released an official trailer for the game showcasing the depths of Senua’s madness and the lengths she goes to. Check it out below.
It’s actually pretty sad but the overall quality of the visuals and facial animations make it simply phenomenal to watch. There’s also the fact that the developer worked with neuroscientists and people who actually suffered from psychosis to properly capture the inner workings of Senua’s mind. Though suffice to say that it’s far from being a happy place.
Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice has been in development for a long time and comes from the same studio behind Heavenly Sword, Enslaved: Odyssey to the West and DmC: Devil May Cry. Despite seeing numerous delays, it’s finally ready to release. You can pick it up on PS4 or PC via Steam on August 8th.
