Hellblade 2 Looks Stunning In New Game Awards Trailer

Expert Verified By

Still Missing Solid Release Date!

Story Highlights
  • Hellblade 2 will arrive in 2024, but the game is still without a solid release date.
  • The new trailer showcases more of the dystopian world filled with all sorts of horrors.
  • It will be exclusive to the Xbox and PC, arriving on Game Pass at launch.

Ninja Theory just dropped a brand new trailer for Senua’s Saga: Hellblade 2. The title is currently slated for a 2024 release, and while the game is seemingly fully playable, no release date has been provided with the new trailer.

Anyhow, this trailer provides another excellent look at the narrative-driven game, showcasing a major Xbox first-party title.

Why it matters: Microsoft hasn’t had as much success with its first-party titles as it anticipated. With Xbox needing a heavy hitter to put it back on the track, Hellblade 2 could just be the title to do it.

The original Hellblade was unique in many ways. It was very ambitious and combined a twisted story with an interesting protagonist, making it an immediate hit.

Senua is returning for a new journey, and she seems more willing than ever to face her nightmares. The original game launched on all major platforms, but the sequel is launching for Xbox and PC.

Ninja Theory’s latest trailer builds upon what we saw previously this year. It has all the gory and mind-bending aspects of its predecessor, but the graphics seem to have been dialed up to eleven.

This gameplay footage shows these gorgeous visuals again, mixing the trailer with parts of combat. Overall, Hellblade 2 does not look like a game that will disappoint.

The only gripe we have with today’s reveal is that a release date is still missing. Ninja Theory has showcased the game more than four times now. This title is also Phil Spencer’s most anticipated, but the lack of a release date is concerning.

However, Xbox may share more information in a future Developer Direct.

Hellblade 2 seems to be the big break that Xbox needs right now.

With the game arriving on Game Pass, most gamers will have easy access to this narrative adventure. If Ninja Theory can successfully evolve its formula from the first game, the studio should be able to create an equally marvelous sequel.
