Hellblade Release

Hellblade Slicing Up PC & PS4 This Year


Following Heavenly Blade, Enslaved: Odyssey to the West, and DmC: Devil May Cry, Ninja Theory’s next foray into the action-spectacle-fighter-game, Hellblade, is definitely coming out this year, at least according to a recent tweet.

Sure, plans can always change, and with as rampant as delays have been over the last few years, nothing surprises me anymore, but still, there’s a fair bit of confidence in the developer’s statement. You can tell by the tone of the letters.

What more, Hellblade is launching simultaneously on both PC and PS4.

It’d be nice if this were an omen of more PS4 games coming to PC, but don’t get your hopes up. Hellblade, despite being released on the PS4, is still technically an independent game, meaning Ninja Theory can likely do with it as they please.

Hellblade follows Senua as she journeys through a hellish underworld, and supposedly deals with the struggles of mental illness, a much heavier message than that of their previous game, DmC: Devil May Cry, which basically came down to Dante killin’ demons and coppin’ a ‘tude.

It doesn’t have a concrete date yet, but there are only eleven months left in 2016, so we shouldn’t have to wait too long.

Now if only Andy Serkis was playing the part of the main character in Hellblade, too.
