The eagerly-awaited game developed by Ninja Theory quickly appeared on Xbox Live to give some important information: it's official, Hellblade 2: Senua's Saga is available from May 21, 2024 on Xbox and PC.

Hellblade 2 Senua's Saga game preview at Developer Direct :

After an announcement at the 2019 Game Awards (already), the studio has remained relatively discreet, unveiling a few impressive videos from other ceremonies, but without revealing much gameplay information. Now, Hellblade 2: Senua's Saga is revealing a little more: in particular, we know that the game's lifespan should be a little shorter than the first opus, but that it will be highly immersive and far more violent.

Hellblade 2: Senua's Saga synopsis:

" Determined to save the victims of tyranny, Senua must fight to overcome the darkness of the world, but also her own darkness. Dive into the next chapter of Senua's story, a carefully crafted experience told through cinematic immersion, stunning visuals and exceptional sound."

At the Game Developers Conference (GDC) 2023, Ninja Theory took the opportunity to share a technical demo of Senua's Saga: Hellblade 2, highlighting the technological advances of the Unreal Engine 5. In this demo, we could admire the hyper-realistic rendering of Senua's face, played by actress Melina Juergens. While the lip-sync still betrays the fact that this is a video game, the overall quality of the animations is commendable, and suggests that the title will live up to expectations in terms of visual and sound rendering.

Note that Hellblade 2: Senua's Saga pushes the limits of real-time facial animation thanks to Unreal Engine 5, as presented at GDC 2023. The game's heroine, Senua, also gives us a glimpse of the plot when she announces her desire to destroy the gods. In the meantime, patience is required to discover this promising title and its captivating universe.
