The remarkable Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice, an indie game made on a relative shoestring that handles mental illness in a startling way, has another trick up its sleeve.
It’s been a big week for Xbox One announcements. More specifically, for PS4 “console exclusive” periods to be finally overturned on some pretty major games.
Which games? Why, just No Man’s Sky and Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice; no big deal.
Earlier in the week, Ninja Theory announced that the Hellblade Xbox One version would be releasing soon, on April 11th, 2018. They also confirmed that the game would feature HDR, would be Xbox One X enhanced, and would allow players to choose between three presets on the beefier console:
- Enhanced Visuals mode offers extra FX and visual quality throughout the experience;
- High Framerate mode runs the game at 60fps;
- High Resolution mode runs the game with dynamic resolutions up to 4K.
Now there’s a Hellblade Xbox One X trailer, to show us just how pretty it looks. And it looks very pretty indeed.
Ninja Theory also thanked fans for their patience in Senua’s Sacrifice coming to Microsoft’s console, and announced that pre-ordering or buying in the first week of launch comes with a 10% discount on the $29.99/€29.99/£24.99 price. Which is nice.
