Ninja Theory Reveals Hellblade

/ Aug 13th, 2014 No Comments

Hellblade

Ninja Theory‘s latest game was teased during PlayStation‘s gamescom press conference for the PlayStation 4. Hellblade is a new IP from the creators of Enslaved: Odyssey to the West and Heavenly Sword.

Hellblade takes place in a world based on Celtic myth. The teaser trailer, created in Unreal 4, introduces the game’s protagonist Senua. The game focuses on Senua as she embarks on a personal journey through a hellish underworld.

[adsense250itp]The game will be digital only and presented to gamers at a lower price. The game will be self-published by Ninja Theory. Despite being independent, Ninja Theory promises AAA quality and production values. To that end it is calling the game an “Independent AAA” title.

The UK developer is approaching Hellblade in a unique manner. It is focusing on the three key tenants that drive its games: “ninja-class combat, strong character stories, and a unique art vision.” The focus with Hellblade is to strengthen and focus on these components.

This “Independent AAA” approach allows the developer to deliver Hellblade without sacrificing any of its creative vision. Hellblade is not a game aiming to please everyone like most AAA retail games. Rather it is one focusing on what Ninja Theory does best, which is character-driven stories with sword-based combat and audacious style.

Ninja Theory announced the game early to invite fans to join Hellblade’s development journey via the game’s official website and Ninja Theory’s social media channels.

Quick Take

Hellblade’s teaser trailer is intriguing but doesn’t give too much away. It is too early for actual gameplay to surface but Ninja Theory’s approach to the game’s “Independent AAA” philosophy and development is exciting. Perhaps not being shackled by a publisher will allow Ninja Theory to explore new ground in the sword-based action genre.
