Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice

Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice will launch digitally for PlayStation 4 and for PC via Steam and GOG on August 8 for $29.99 / €29.99 / £24.99, developer Ninja Theory announced.

Users who pre-order the game on PlayStation 4 will receive a Hellblade dynamic theme that depicts the burning tree scene from the game. Users who pre-order on PC will receive an exclusive digital comic short, titled Hellblade: Senua’s Song, a collaboration with comic book publisher Valiant Entertainment featuring words by Hellblade creative director Tameem Antoniades and art from multiple Eisner Award nominee Ben Templesmith.

Here’s an overview of the game, via Ninja Theory:

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 traumatized 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.
