Pretty good looking game.
Yeah. I'm interested in the mental illness aspect of this game. If they truely set out to make a game that delves into mental illness, I can't wait. I just hope that it isn't some type of way to spin the reasoning for making it. If it has a setup, a delivery, AND and finale, or some type of explanation or resolution (even if the resolution isn't one at all) regarding this problem, I will very impressed. I know that they have included professionals to help them in their development, as well as real ppl who have suffered. I guess I just want there to be a clear cut connection that many can relate to. I was a bit worried b/c of the setting, but it could work. And it could actually open the doors for other devs to delve into serious issues, using great story and gameplay as the backdrop. As I mentioned though, I hope it's front and center, or it will be lost on many ppl who play it. This is an xbone exclusive right? If it is, it may be the 1st good reason for me to buy one. Ninja Theory is becoming 9ne of my favorite developers.
It's a timed PS4 exclusive, only coming to PC, so no Xbox One. I think the setting is perfect for the game as it shows the demnetia of a warrior. Remember Senua's mental illness started after the Viking invasion, hence the brutal and "hellish" world. I really hope they pull off the mental illness side, and it's not just an excuse like you said.
the Xbox One possibility still exists, so maybe after release? Hell I'd pay for a Xbox One version of the game.
Twing-twang all day biatches....lol This looks totally rad..
This is the closest to getting a sequel to Heavenly Sword, so I'm all for it. Day 1.
Senua does remind me of Nariko. I think fans will not be disappointed in Hellblade.
It's funny how all female characters in Ninja Theory's games seem to resemble each other.
Wow. Loving what I see.
I'm pretty sure this game is going to be great! I absolutely can't wait to see more of this wonderful game at E3.
"Digital self-publishing means that we can offer a smaller, but high quality game at around half the price of retail games.” Now that's the line that sold me
Totally, and what we've seen so far does look like high quality. GG Ninja Theory
Spiritual heavenly sword successor
let me guess, cross gen game? the graphics look shit!
No, PS4 and PC only.
are you sure it's not coming to xbox, too?
Must be a dated engine or just lack of talent/time this time around, cause it looks like a last gen game.
Ziggurcat- I think it's a timed PS4 exclusive, so it may come to Xbox eventually
Timed exclusive only I believe, so should eventually appear on Xbone too hopefully if its any good.
It was first a PS4 exclusive, then months later we got the PC announcement. Nothing so far about Xbox one, but we can hope. Maybe Ninja Theory will talk about that at E3.
Well it's an independent game , published independently, and it looks pretty neat...
This trailer might be some months old than its current state. Play DmC: Definitive Edition, and you shall know that Ninja Theory delivers ninja-class combat and good graphics.
that class combat is based off CAPCOM'S original Devil May Cry, its just basically redone with a tad better animations.
@ zigguercat: This has already been discussed. They've never mentioned an Xbox One version. Only PS4 and PC (the latter excites them because of mods and the like), while Sony has made them feel like they can create the game they want to create on PS4. OT: Can't wait for this!
Never seen anything like this! The whole idea of mental illness intrigues me, as i studied psychology for 3 years...! Cant wait for this.
Wish it was more like a heavenly sword sequal. Nariko was well fit and had some great martial art moves. The character in hell blade looks like that ugly freak dwarf side kick from heavenly sword instead. Not fit enough to be the main character....lol
Please! Have you seen this? http://www.mweb.co.za/games... I think Hellblade's combat will be even better than HS
This is false. One can argue that we have. An example would be Alan Wake or even Prey.
Looks good but will wait for more ingame closer to release.
Awful name but hey the game is what matters .
Well, we have seen similar things. Just not mental illness. I'd argue that Datura tread the same ground at points.
The Witcher has spoiled me... I like the feel, story and atmosphere of the game for sure, but as some others have mentioned to tons of disagrees, it does not look very good graphically. But its early days, they have to at least top heavenly sword, if not then meh.
