Developer and Publisher have finally announced the release date of their upcoming game Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice. The upcoming action adventure game takes players on the journey through Senua’s point of view.
The story of the game takes place in a fictional Viking world based on Celtic mythology and Norse mythology players play as Senua a broken warrior who is affected by a mental illness. she embarks on her journey to fight for the soul of her lover against the hellish world which is a manifestation of his mind.
Ninja Theory described the game as an independent AAA game which means it would have same high-quality gameplay and production as other AAA games have. the game has been in development for more than 2 years by a small team of 20 people and the result by the team is quite admirable considering they had half the budget which takes to develop any AAA game.

The journey of senua is highly story driven and also incorporates some heavy combat fighting with swords against various beasts and humanoid creatures. it will also have parts where the players can only navigate through the help of sounds.
Recently Ninja Theory revealed on Twitter that the game will be 6-8 Hours long that is half the length of big games but it also cost half the price.
To answer a frequently asked question: We haven’t finished balancing the game yet, but we expect a playthrough of #Hellblade to take 6-8hrs.
