'Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice' (ALL) Gets Release Date, Pre-Order Incentive - Screens & Trailer

Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice, based on Celtic myth, is an experience focused on delivering a deep character in a twisted world, with brutal uncompromising combat.

Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice comes from the makers of Heavenly Sword, Enslaved: Odyssey to the West, and DmC: Devil May Cry.

It is 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,’ said Ninja Theory Co-founder and Chief Creative Ninja Tameem Antoniades.

Those pre-ordering for PlayStation 4 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. With words by Hellblade creative director Tameem Antoniades and art from multiple Eisner Award nominee Ben Templesmith, the comic comes from a creative collaboration between Ninja Theory and award-winning comic book publisher Valiant Entertainment.

“Since Valiant and Ninja Theory’s paths first crossed, we realized that we are two creative organizations with very similar outlooks. We share a dedication to quality, creativity and giving our fans what they want. It has been fantastic to work with the talented team at Valiant to bring Hellblade: Senua’s Song to life in such a beautiful way,” continued Ninja Theory Co-Founder & Chief Creative Director Tameem Antoniades.

“Ninja Theory and Valiant have been working behind the scenes for some time now, and we’ve had the chance to see the development process behind Hellblade up close,” said Valiant CEO & Chief Creative Officer Dinesh Shamdasani. “Not only is the experience deeply compelling, but, most importantly, Senua is a complex and captivating lead character whose journey is heartbreaking, inspirational and
revelatory all at once. We’re all fans and admirers of Ninja Theory here, and they share a creative POV with Valiant that is grounded in strong storytelling and deep characterization. We couldn’t be happier to contribute to Hellblade’s enthralling mythology in some small way, and we look forward to future collaborations.”

Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice will be released on August 8th, 2017 for PS4 and PC.
