Some new cinematic screenshots of Hellblade: Senau’s Sacrifice have surfaced thanks to Dead End Thrills.
For those that don’t know: Dead End Thrills is run by a former games industry artist and writer who has a knack for capturing the beauty in a video game. The project specifically is designed to celebrate the work and talent of a variety of videogame artists by capturing gorgeous screenshots of their work. Further, while they aren’t your run-of-the-mill screenshots — aka you aren’t capturing these on your PS4 share button anytime soon — they are said to be 100% natural…or in other words not enhanced through editing tools such as Photoshop.
That being said, the images aren’t necessarily indicative of the experience you will have of the game, but they do showcase in an honest way the beauty of said game — in this case, Ninja Theory’s Hellblade, which is shaping up to be one of the most beautiful looking games I’ve personally ever seen. You can find the full gallery of new images here.
Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice is poised to launch on August 8th on the PS4 and PC, priced at $29.99 USD.
