Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice [PC] Download
An independent game from Ninja Theory – makers of Heavenly Sword, Enslaved: Odyssey to the West & DmC: Devil May Cry. Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice takes you on a journey into savage viking heartland with Senua, a Celtic warrior struggling with trauma & psychosis.
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. Created in collaboration with neuroscientists and people who experience psychosis, Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice will pull you deep into Senua’s mind.
Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice isn’t Ninja Theory’s biggest game, but it might just be its best. For years the studio has slogged away at ambitious cinematic action titles, pulling in the likes of Andy Serkis, Alex Garland and Nitin Sawhney to make games that looked and felt like works of art. More focused and concise, Hellblade works on a smaller, more intimate scale, yet combines superb visuals, audio and gameplay into one hugely coherent, powerful experience. Hellblade is damn near perfect.
It’s both a myth – a Norse-meets-Celtic spin on the hero’s tale – and a psychological character study, following the quest of a young warrior, Senua, to enter hell and reclaim a loved one’s soul. To say that Senua has her demons is putting it mildly. She hears voices, has visions and suffers from psychotic breakdowns; all handled sensitively and intelligently by Ninja Theory with advice from University of Cambridge Professor of Health Neuroscience, Paul Fletcher, and the Wellcome Trust.
Senua’s mythical world is one of the strongest we’ve seen this generation, forging haunting landscapes from a cocktail of Norse legend, dark fantasy and body horror, with landscapes that can instantly shift from gloomy and fog into brilliant sunshine. In 1080p on PS4 it’s incredible, while on PS4 Pro in a checkerboard 4K with HDR it’s nothing short of astonishing. And all that audio-visual artistry is anchored by a series of strong performances, most mixing voicework with heavily treated video, but with Melina Juergen’s nuanced motion-captured performance as Senua at the core.
