ThisGenGaming says: "Ninja Theory’s award winning masterpiece Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice is finally releasing on Xbox One. And we have a Release date: Wednesday, April 11, 2018, 6:00:00 AM + It will be Xbox One X Enhanced!"
picking this up when it drops
That's great news! Was gonna pick it up on the pro glad I waited, hopefully they'll take advantage of the X.
X enhanced! Dynamic 4K confirmed
As a PS fan, I'm very happy xbox gamers get to play this.
@CaptainObvious878 Thanks Captain, nice to see comments like that. shame they're few and far between. I will definitely be picking it up at some point
Good for Xbox fans awesome game deserves more sales Support it well
Make sure you play it with good headphones, crazy. Great game!
A must with headphones
I'm ashamed to say I didn't play this on the PS4 when it came out, so I decided to preorder for the X this morning after reading this article and checking out a few reviews. The funny thing is, its installing now... Is it usual for games to pre load this far out from release, Its a 15.39GB download if anyone can compare with the PS4 install size?
Look forward to seeing how it gets Enhanced for the X.
Hellblade on Xbox supports HDR and the game is enhanced for Xbox One X, with players having the choice of 3 enhanced modes to select from: Enhanced Visuals mode offers extra FX and visual quality throughout the experience, High Framerate mode runs the game at 60fps and High Resolution mode runs the game with dynamic resolutions up to 4K.
Sounds good on paper but I mean Digital Foundry analysis.
Yeeeeeeeeessssss!!!!! I will be picking this up day 1. I really like Ninja Theory. I do have this game on ps4 as well but I really want to see the improved visuals one the 1X
as much as i see where you coming from i dont think it will be a massive wow factor between ps4 pro and xbox one x. good to see the ones that can only afford one console can experience this game now :)
Maybe true but I did notice the graphical difference on
Yeah people said the same thing about Wolfenstein 2 or Shadow of War, but both of those offer a noticeable improvement over the Pro
Quite the experience on a maxed out PC. We’ll see how the X version turns out.
I have a Skylake I5 6600k and a GTX 1080 and I can only run at 1440p with max settings. I tried to get to 4K but could not unless I went to 30 fps. I prefer 60 however, thus 1440p.
Good news. The Xbox guys will enjoy this, it's a great and unique experience to be sure. Play it with good headphones on if possible.
The sound quality is amazing, check out acg video review on youtube
Oh ok, I see what you meant. I have a set of Astro A50s, but I prefer the sound of my Onkyo receiver and Klipsch surround. Bet this will seeing great either way.
They recorded the voices in Senua's head using a legit binaural microphone but you only get the full effect of it if you wear headphones (running in stereo, not virtual surround). I know what you mean though. I have a Harman/Kardon receiver with Polk Audio surround myself and I can confirm this game was still better on headphones :) It's down right unsettling hearing those voices creep up right next to your ear!
Just completed it. It's in my top 5 gaming experiences. Up there with the last of us
wow, definitely going to check it out then. I've got a couple of other game I plan on playing first like sea of thieves, state of decay 2, lost legacy, crash bandicoot and god of war but will 100% get on it at some point. there's just to many games and not enough time lol
I haven't tried this game yet.
Day one for me i hope it runs at 4k on the X
I just platimuned this one, if you're xbox only and love a cryptic atmosphere you're in for a treat. The play with headphones thing is no joke, it intensifies the storytelling and screws with your mind and emotions. I definitely recommend this one.
Should really go get me some Dolby Atmos headphones ^^
On XBOX you can just use regular headphones and downlown Atmos for headphones on the store.
under/over 100,000 copies that sell on xbox?
That should only matter to Ninja Theory right?
sure, wasn't suggesting otherwise...
Good the game is promoting low budget AAA so i really want it to succeed
Low budget AAA? That's an oxymoron.
I think he meant "small studio self published AAA"
No. AAA budgets range from $10m to over $200m.
Nice, will definitely pick this up again. Looking forward to seeing the Xbox One X version in action.
I’d go thru it again if it’s One X enhanced. I’m sure it will be the definitive console version. Great game.
It is a very short experience but a good one. I wouldn't expect to spend more than a few days with it but it will be an experience you will remember.
people are forgetting what will make this the definitive version. Xbox One supports Dolby Atmos. The game is all about audio and i fully plan to replay it on the Xbox One X if Dolby Atmos is supported
If you can, make sure you experience through its use of 3d audio.
This won't do to well on X. Was never a in demand tite for X fans.
Might not do well because it’s a distant memory, but we Xbox players just like games period. It doesn’t have to be the same retread over and over for it to be a game people would like. I’m interested if the price is decent, not paying full retail for a game that’s been out over a year, and how long isn’t it. Narrative driven games that end too quick are a waste of money to me.
Ah there it is!!!! LOL I knew it was just a matter of time.
maybe It wasnt an in demand title because since its been released its been exclusively on ps4?
Since its been released its been out on PS4 AND PC...
Great game, good to see this coming to more platforms.
yeah i’m looking forward to see what extra graphics effects are being added in the 3rd game mode over the PS4 Pro’s two modes. will be interesting to see what they will add with the power of the OneX
Play it with good headset. Audio is awesome
Great news for Xbox owners because this is a one of a kind experience and a must play title! I hope they support it!
Very cool. Loved playing it on my PS4. A great & different experience. Even tho I don't own an Xbox, I'm genuinely excited to hear what some of my fellow gamers on Xbox think of the game.
This is an awesome development. This game looks amazing.
enjoy, Xbox fans. just be sure to have something for motion-sickness ready if you're sensitive. some effects are trippy...
Still need to get this myself, so many games in my back catalogue.
You Xbox only people should be excited. Really interesting game different from anything you'll have played. I loved it, not a long game but very unique and a very cool story.
A recommended buy, it was an awesome experience on ps4 :)
Awesome glad to see more people will get the opportunity to play this game
Since this game was on steam and now coming to xbox, do you guys think Death Stranding or Shenmue have a chance as well?
I'd say maybe Shenmue. Death Stranding I wouldn't count on though. I think Sony has some sort of funding in the game, and it's using Sony's own Decima engine, so a lot of work would need to be done to get it up and running on the X1. Decima supports PC though, so could end up there.
I think Shenmue will be on X1 Death stranding I doubt it especially that Sony is helping in the development process.
Death Stranding? Not a chance. Not only is it using an in-house Sony engine, Decima, the IP as a whole is owned by SCE. There’s an ever slight chance it could end up on PC, but Xbox no.
I’ll probably still pass. I wanted this game up until release. Watched it on Twitch and it was just boring looking.
It's meant to be played not watchd
I can do whatever I like. It’s no different than judging a game based on reviews which tons of people do. I don’t like what I saw therefore it’s a no buy for me. I don’t need to play it after watching several hours of live gameplay.
im just saying that its is one of those game that doesn't show everything during streams. the audio wont be as impactful watching it through a stream than actually playing it. not saying you ahve to buy it or that your choice not to is wrong, just that streaming wont show the game justice
this is not even a game.
Good for the people who wanted to play it , not for me though.
i was very hyped for this game but i had sooo many games to deal with when it released that i never played it. might pick up now on ps4 ofc.
