Ninja Theory’s new game Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice gets a new trailer and a release date.

Ninja Theory has released a new trailer titled ‘Ragnarok’ for Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice. The trailer comes in celebration of the announcement of the games release date and availability for pre-order. Check out the awesomeness below.

The game looks intense and was created in collaboration with neuroscientists and people who experience psychosis. The game will pull players deep into the main character Senua’s mind. Hellblade is an experimental project that will be on a smaller scope than most other ‘AAA’ games. “At around half the length of a similar AAA game and half the price, we think Hellblade will give players a unique AAA quality experience at a fair price.” according to Ninja Theory co-founder and Chief Creative Ninja Tameem Antoniades.

From the makers of Heavenly Sword, Enslaved: Odyssey to the West, and DmC: Devil May Cry, comes a warrior’s brutal journey into myth and madness. Set in the Viking age, a broken Celtic warrior embarks on a haunting vision quest into Viking Hell to fight for the soul of her dead lover.


Those pre-ordering the game for PlayStation 4 will receive an exclusive Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice Dynamic Theme that depicts the iconic burning tree scene from the game. Those pre-ordering on PC will receive an exclusive digital comic short, Hellblade: Senua’s Song. With words by Hellblade creative director Tameem Antoniades and art from multiple Eisner Award nominee Ben Templesmith, the comic comes from a creative collaboration between Ninja Theory and comic book publisher Valiant Entertainment.

Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice will be released for PS4 and PC on August 8th, 2017.  You can pre-order the digital-only game now via the PlayStation Store, Steam and GOG.com
