Ninja Theory’s Hellblade is a game about Senua and her battle with mental illness, which here manifests as a vision of Hell. Within the game Senua will fight creatures that look to cause her harm, and though the premise sounds good we’ve not seen much of it in action, at least until now. Six minutes of b roll gameplay footage from Gamescom has surfaced.
The footage seems to be near the beginning of the game if the narration is anything to go by. There is a look at combat against some relatively easy looking foes, as well as showing off parts of the scenery. It all looks grey and forlorn, no doubt to replicate the state of Senua’s mind. The combat looks okay and the camera is too close up for my liking, but since this is B roll the final game presentation may be different.
Hellblade will be releasing on PS4 and PC in 2016.
