Yesterday, out of nowhere, Microsoft and developer Ninja Theory released a next-gen patch for Hellblade Senua's Sacrifice. How does the game look and perform on the Xbox Series X|S compared to the last-gen versions?

Yesterday’s patch optimized the Ninja Theory’s title for Microsoft’s next-gen consoles, adding Ray Tracing and new visuals modes on Series X and S. Following the patch, the game now offers three visuals modes on both consoles - Performance, Resolution, and Enriched. Each mode offers its own resolution, framerate, and visual fidelity with Ray Tracing being added to the “Enriched” mode on both Xbox Series X|S. So how does Hellblade look and run following the next-gen patch? YouTube channel ‘ElAnalistaDeBits’ put the game to the test on Microsoft’s last-gen and next-gen consoles to highlight the differences.
