Ninja Theory posted an update on their site today announcing Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice would finally be released this summer. The game will be a digital release only on August 8 for the PS4 and on PC for Steam and GOG. It's been a long three years since the game was announced, but finally, we can pre-order it right now and get an exclusive digital comic called Hellblade: Senua's Song. The book was written by Hellblade creative director Tameem Antoniades and features art from Ben Templesmith.
Ninja Theory has not been shy about Hellblade's development and is one fo the few companies going today that have provided constant updates on their site about where the game stood and what was keeping it held back. What little footage we see in the half-trailer below is stunning and holds up well to other titles that follow in the same genre. Here's a brief quote from the team before you get to the trailer.
We've been humbled by the support that we've had from all of our fans throughout development. You've followed our journey, shared our updates and encouraged us to follow our vision to its fullest. We've shared our development ups and downs with you, given you an insight into the world of creating a game like Hellblade and listened to what you've had to say. Now, as we approach launch, we ask you to rally round, pre-order Hellblade and help make this project a success for us, you and all of gaming.
