Hellblade II does not forget Senua's Psychosis

Hellblade II does not forget Senua's Psychosis

The protagonist of Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice went through a lot in her epic journey to save the soul of her dead lover, but her adventure was far more complicated than you would think due to her inner problems. The voices in Senua's head were a key element in shaping the character and the story in the first game, and they will also take a prominent role in the development of the events in her upcoming adventure. In Senua's Saga: Hellblade II, she is at peace with her inner demons, but the brave Pict warrior has not left behind the origin of her hallucinations. Her psychosis is one of her defining traits, and Ninja Theory has opted to narrate the story with this very present.

A realistic approach

If the kind of approach the studio took to such a problem was praised in the first game, they have decided to not leave it behind for the second episode in Senua's story. A new Senua's Saga: Hellblade II video sheds some light on her psychosis through the scope of real-life experiences and neuroscience. 



Senua's authenticity is what makes the whole game experience immersive and believable, and her illness is very important in this process. Rather than being anecdotic or an excuse to introduce certain gameplay mechanics, Ninja Theory has built Senua's Saga: Hellblade II around it. From Senua's perspective, what she perceives is real, and it allows her to define a clear path that only she can see but that is decisive in her adventure as it's one of the main elements that drives her forward. 

Senua's Saga: Hellblade II will soon delight the fans of the series with its outstanding graphics, narrative, and gameplay. The release of the game is scheduled for May 21 on PC and Xbox Series X/S, and if you want to join Senua in her next adventure on day one, all you need to do is use our comparator to pre-order a Senua's Saga: Hellblade II game code at the best price today.
