After its debut at Sony’s Gamescom 2014 media briefing, we didn’t hear much about Ninja Theory’s latest action-adventure game, Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice. But, slated to release on both PC and PS4, the game will surely run best on a high-end gaming rig – just as Ninja Theory’s last big game, DmC: Devil May Cry, did in 2013.
This time, however, the Heavenly Sword developer has gone independent, publishing Hellblade on its lonesome. Based on Celtic and Norse mythology, the game revolves around a heroine known as Senua who hacks and slashes her way through a living hellscape illustrating the darkness of her own thoughts.
And, being the shorter narrative-driven title that it is, PC gamers will appreciate the frugal $29 (£24, AU$39) price tag that it bears.
Expected: August 8, 2017
