Senua’s Saga: Hellblade 2 is the First Game on Xbox Series X
Microsoft revealed a new Xbox at The Game Awards, the Xbox Series X, and to go with it, a new game from Ninja Theory: Senua’s Saga: Hellblade 2.
The new trailer doesn’t show much about the game, but it looks as though it won’t deviate too far from its roots. Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice told the tale of a Celtic warrior fighting Viking undead in a dark and dreary world, but it also took on the difficulty of portraying mental health battles in a sensitive and efficient manner. I really like what I saw in the trailer.
It’s a surprise that a game developed around that single, well-contained concept would get a new game, but given how well it was marketed the first time around I’d give Ninja Theory good odds of pulling it off. Using it as the opening game for a new Xbox gives a very strong signal that Microsoft have high hopes in it, too. There’s no release date revealed yet, but we’ll keep you posted as we know more about it. Check out the trailer below.
