Hellblade’s Story will be “Deep and Personal”, Gameplay Footage coming in 2015


Indie developer Ninja Theory held another Q&A on twitter today, answering questions from their fans, on their upcoming title Hellblade.

In terms of story, NT states the one of Hellblade’s protagonist Senua will be “deep and personal” and have a “pretty serious tone”. When asked by yours truly if it would span multiple titles, the response was that Hellblade was their only priority for now. The game’s script also hasn’t been finalized yet.

In terms of gameplay, fans can expect the developer to use their past experiences with other games when designing Hellblade’s mechanics Those looking for some gameplay footage may get their wish in early 2015.

Other answers Ninja Theory gave can be seen below.

  • Would love to add extras to Hellblade such as Photomode
  • No co-op
  • Not sure if Hellblade will feature RPG-like customizable attributes for Senua
  • Not sure how many enemies and bosses the game will have, but it will be a “good amount”
  • Contemplating if Hellblade will be open world or not.
  • Hellblade is a timed PS4 exclusive
  • Combat will be more about focusing on individual enemies instead of large groups
  • No actual length has been set but fans can expect Hellblade to be shorter than the average AAA title
  • Unsure if Senua will fight with other weapons besides her main sword
  • Ninja Theory will be releasing a developer diary on Hellblade’s enemies

It is obvious from these answers that Hellblade is still very early in development but it is great that Ninja Theory are allowing the fans to be a part of the process.

Stay tuned to RGN for more on the game, including more dev diaries.
