Today Ninja Theory released a new trailer of its upcoming action game Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice.
The trailer is most definitely interesting, and certainly sparks conflicting emotions. While the imagery and sound for the game are harrowing, depicting Senua’s own psychosis, the narration, which includes Psychiatrist and University of Cambridge Professor of Health and Neuroscience Paul Fletcher, and students from the Recovery College East in Cambridge feels uplifting, as it shows how a video game can tackle a scientific issue and raise awareness about a widespread illness.
What’s even more interesting is that this isn’t just a trailer. Senua’s Psychosis is actually a 25 minute-long feature included in the game, so we’ll be able to watch it as a small but interesting documentary enriching the experience.
You can check it out below, and if you want to see and learn more, you can also enjoy details about PS4 Pro and high-end PC support, the latest official trailer from a few days ago, announcement of the game’s photo mode, another recent trailer, and the PC requirements in case you prefer to play Senua’s adventures on your gaming ring.
The game is known for having been developed by a very small number of people at Ninja Theory, while using performance capture and advanced modeling technology in order to give it an “AAA Indie” feel despite the limited staff.
Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice is getting close, and it will release on August 8th for PS4 and PC.
