On Monday, developer Ninja Theory teased us with news that an announcement would be coming today. As it turns out, that announcement was a definitive release date for their upcoming game, Hellblade Senua’s Sacrifice.
Announced back in 2014, Hellblade is an action game that focuses on the journey and mental state of its protagonist, Senua. Senua is a Celtic warrior who suffers from psychosis. Alone, she must embark on a very personal journey through a hellish landscape created by her own psychotic manifestations.
According to Ninja Theory, their goal with Hellblade was to bring the mid-sized game back by creating an independently developed game with AAA polish. Hellblade Senua’s Sacrifice is scheduled for release on August 8th, 2017. You can get the game for $29.99/€29.99/£24.99 on Steam, GOG, and PlayStation 4.
