Today, UK-based developer Ninja Theory — who you may recognize from DmC: Devil May Cry, Enslaved: Odyssey to the West, or Heavenly Sword — announced and detailed the Photo Mode that will be available in Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice when it launches on August 8th for PS4 and PC.
According to Ninja Theory, you can easily capture Senua in action or take a beautiful still shot of the scenery found within the game’s Viking wildlands with Photo Mode. The capture mode will come with a variety of filters and tools that will enable you to add more personal touches to your favorite shots, including a camera pan and roll, focal distance, color grading, and much more.
Better yet, Photo Mode is easy to get started with: all you do is a press a simple button once its been enabled in the main menu.
As previously reported, Hellblade is a game that is said to hone in on each of three self-described principles of a Ninja Theory game: a unique art vision, ninja-class challenging combat, and strong character stories. Speaking of story, the game is presented within both Celtic mythology and Norse mythology, and follows the personal journey of Senua as she embarks through a hellish world made up of Senua’s psychotic manifestations of her own reality and mind.
Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice will cost $29.99 USD when it launches on the aforementioned platforms and August date. If you’re a preordering type of guy or gal — you will receive an exclusive PS4 theme that depicts the burning tree scene from the game. If you’re a guy or gal on PC, you will get an exclusive digital comic shot called Hellblade: Senua’s Song.
