Hellblade (PS4 Exclusive) Developer Diary #9 Focuses On Music [HD 1080P]

Hellblade RealGamerNewz

The musical creative process behind Hellblade is said to have been a bit more of a focus than for most games. Some heavy rock music paired with abnormal sounds, futuristic / dark themes, and orchestral symphonic tunes are heard in the 9th developer diary of the upcoming title from Ninja Theory. For those not keeping up, Hellblade is a hack and slash / action title hitting the PlayStation 4 on a yet to be announced date.

The development studio has been taking an approach of providing the gaming community with plenty of dev diaries that way there’s no shortage of information with which to form accurate expectations of the final product (or so we hope, especially after The Order’s fiasco in which many felt misled). Check out Andy LaPlegua discussing his journey as an artist through working with Ninja Theory on Hellblade and hear some of the audio atmosphere. More information on the game will be on RealGamerNewz as it becomes available.

More Hellblade trailers and gameplay including the other dev diaries can be found here.

Hellblade-3

Independent game studio Ninja Theory has released their sixth developer diary for their upcoming title, Hellblade. The focus this time around is on the game’s camera, controls and combat.

Watch the video below to learn why the team chose to go with an over the shoulder camera similar to third-person shooters and how they are designing Hellblade’s hardcore, skill-based combat system. It seems Ninja Theory plan on delivering a truly challenging experience, when it comes to combat.

See the Art that Inspired Ninja Theory’s Hellblade in New Dev Diary

HellBlade_zombie_army_15-1024x846

Ninja Theory has released their second developer diary for Hellblade. Last week’s video revealed the behind-scenes process in creating the game’s teaser trailer, while this week’s focuses on some of the early art that inspired the team featuring the Art Director Stuart Adcock and more.

With Hellblade being set during the time of Vikings and Celts, the studio’s art team took a trip to the British Museum in London and visited a Viking exhibit in the hopes to gain some inspiration for the game. For Ninja Theory it wasn’t just about looking at the objects, but holding discussions about them, trying to understand the culture behind them and using them to come up with their own unique take.

You can check out some of the impressive and down right hellish (Pun intended) concept art for the game, many of which won’t make it into the final product.

Here’s the First Dev Diary for Ninja Theory’s Hellblade

Hellblade

Indie studio Ninja Theory has released their first developer diary for their next project, Hellblade. The video titled, “The Announcement” focuses on the development of the teaser trailer which debuted two weeks ago at Gamescom 2014.

It is a very impressive to learn that Ninja Theory had very little resources at the beginning stages; with no designers, animators and only one but very busy programmer. They had to create the trailer around the art team at the time, which featured “a concept artist, an environment artist, character artist and an art director.

The main focus of the teaser was to introduce the main character Senua while also providing hints of some of the themes surrounding her story. Tameem Antoniades, co-founder and chief creative director for Ninja Theory states “When everyone in the room is shouting, jumping, screaming and shooting. The one way to stand out is to, just stand still.” Personally I felt the game most definitely stood out amongst the crowd at Gamescom.

You can check out the videos below to learn even more about their process, as well as check out some concept art for the teaser.
