PRESS RELEASE


Ninja Theory’s Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice set for release on August 8th 2017

Pre-order available today for PlayStation 4 and PC

June 6th 2017 – For Immediate Release

Ninja Theory has announced that Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice will be released for PlayStation 4 and PC on August 8th 2017. Players can pre-order the digital-only game from today via PlayStation, Steam and GOG.com for $29.99/€29.99/£24.99.

Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice comes from the makers of Heavenly Sword, Enslaved: Odyssey to the West, and DmC: Devil May Cry. It is the story of Senua, a traumatised Celtic warrior journeying into the Viking underworld of hel. Supported by Wellcome and created in collaboration with neuroscientists and people who experience psychosis, Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice will pull players deep into Senua’s mind.

Those pre-ordering for PlayStation 4 will receive an exclusive Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice Dynamic Theme that depicts the iconic burning tree scene from the game. Those pre-ordering on PC will receive an exclusive digital comic short, Hellblade: Senua’s Song. With words by Hellblade creative director Tameem Antoniades and art from multiple Eisner Award nominee Ben Templesmith, the comic comes from a creative collaboration between Ninja Theory and award-winning comic book publisher Valiant Entertainment.

Tameem Antoniades, Ninja Theory Co-founder and Chief Creative Ninja said ‘We’re happy to announce Hellblade’s release date after 3 years of open and independent development. Hellblade has been all about trying to rejuvenate the space between ‘indie’ and AAA, where games can be creatively rich but still boast AAA quality. At around half the length of a similar AAA game and half the price, we think Hellblade will give players a unique AAA quality experience at a fair price.’

    How come Ninja Theory gets an award for making shit while I get nothing after all the years I’ve done it on my porcelain throne?!

    Small gripe I’ll admit but…

    Why is a CELTIC warrior in the NORSE (Viking) hell/underworld? It’s like having an ancient Greek in the ancient Egyptian afterlife…

    This better be an important plot point and not just “We just wanted it to sound/look cool and can’t even be arsed to give a good reason why”.
