release date

it’s been many years now Hellblade 2: Senua’s Saga The first was shown at the 2019 Game Awards, with the latest appearance being the same event in late 2021. The game, though never giving a definite release date, seems to have been pushed back a few times already. Based on the latest footage we saw, it’s possible that this could be a title coming in the fall or winter of 2022, or maybe slipping into early 2023. We expect to see and learn more in early to mid 2022 but for now, we can only speculate.

platforms

An Icelandic volcano is blowing smoke.

We Know Ninja Theory Was First Bought by Microsoft hellblade was released in what was, funnily enough, a timed PlayStation exclusive, so the sequel will now come exclusively to Xbox consoles, specifically the latest Xbox Series X and S, and PC.

trailer

It wasn’t until the 2021 Game Awards that we got our first good, extended look Hellblade 2: Senua’s Saga, Whereas the first trailer we got was of a tone piece. In that initial disclosure, we only saw scenarios as Senua cast a guttural and off-putting chant and made distorted facial expressions as the imagery became more and more disturbing.

The latest gameplay reveal gives a much more cohesive look at what the game will actually be. After a few narrations declaring war on the gods, we lead a group of warriors into a cave in Senua. As she gives orders to the others, we hear familiar whispers in Senua’s head pulling her in different directions and asking questions. She jogs with the group, flaming torches and spears in hand, though Senua himself appears unarmed.

Something heavy lurks in the mist and groans. She moves on, voices warning that “death is coming”, and inspects the skeletons lying in the cave. The giant crawls, appearing weak or tired, forward. She tells her men to stop until the giant is resting against a stone wall. She takes a flaming spear from one man as another throws a container of black liquid, possibly oil, at the giant. When the spear hits, it bursts into flames.

The giant groans as the spear flies, falls to the floor and kicks up a wall of dust. Senua, now alone, calls on her allies, but is answered by a man running through the dust engulfed in flames. A second appears but Vishal’s hands get splattered. She is still burnt, she calls Vishal’s attention towards her. It starts reaching for him, and Senua retreats, more men behind her getting ready and throwing spears.

They break out of the cave and back to the beach and attack Vishal, but it still follows Senua who realizes he is the one Vishal is after. Eventually making it past a barricade, Senua screams to attack, but the giant pushes the defense away. Vishal reaches out and appears to be asking for Senua’s help, who then says “I know you.”

Ninja Theory has been pretty tight-lipped about the overall story of what? Hellblade 2: Senua’s Saga It only aims to expand on the first and continue to shine a light on mental health issues. They confirmed at the Xbox Games Showcase in 2021 that the game would take place in 9th-century Iceland and bring players across several miles of unspoiled landscape, however, which is in line with the earlier focus on Celtic culture and Orkney, home of Senua. Scotland.

Gameplay

Senua aims a flaming spear at a giant.

First hellblade The game essentially had two modes of gameplay: exploration and puzzle-solving, and combat. None of the elements were particularly deep or challenging due to the small budget and team, especially the combat, however, the incredibly impressive visuals, the audio design in portraying Senua’s psychosis, and the treatment of mental health issues. The game was still shining. Based on what we’ve seen, it looks like all the positive notes from the first game will be back, and better than ever, plus a more intense combat system.

For one, let’s say the trailer showed off the actual gameplay, then this would be the first time…
