At The Game Awards 2019 Microsoft shocked the gaming world by unveiling their next-generation console, the Xbox Series X, and they didn’t stop there. They also revealed the system’s first game – Senua’s Saga: Hellblade II. It looks like Senua’s new adventure will be a much less solitary journey, as the trailer features Senua leading what appears to be a small army in an intimidating war chant. We also catch a glimpse of some sort of strange ritual and what appears to be a stone giant. Will there be some actual supernatural elements in Hellblade II, or will Senua’s delusions come into play once again?
One thing's for sure, the game looks absolutely gorgeous. Microsoft insists the Hellblade II trailer is running in realtime on Xbox Series X hardware, and some of what we see looks downright photorealistic. If this is what the next generation is going to look like, well… damn. Check out the debut trailer for Senua’s Saga: Hellblade II, below.
Aside from the new trailer, we don’t have a lot of solid information about Hellblade II. This little blurb from Microsoft’s Xbox Series X announcement is about all we have to go on…
The possibilities of what Xbox Series X enables developers to achieve was also brought to life this evening with the unveiling of Senua’s Saga: Hellblade II. A sequel to the award-winning Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice from world-renowned developers Ninja Theory, the game is being built to leverage the full power of Xbox Series X. The footage shared tonight was captured in-engine and reflects the power of Xbox Series X available to developers to deliver new universes, experiences and games in ways you have never imagined.
Senua’s Saga: Hellblade II is coming to Xbox Series X. Other platforms and a release date have yet to be announced. What do you think? Ready to unleash your Celtic rage again?
