360° Video Virtual Reality Game Development
The Hellblade Senua’s Sacrifice is still in early development and Ninja Theory is calling Hellblade an “independent AAA” game, by which they mean that it will be developed and published independently but with all the quality and production values of any AAA game on the market.
According to Ninja Theory, over the course of the last 14 years they have developed three key strengths that define their games: ninja-class combat, strong character stories, and a unique art vision.
In Hellblade they want to take these three key strengths to the next level. Hellblade will be an experience focused on delivering a deep character in a twisted world, with brutal uncompromising combat.
The game was announced at Sony’s Gamescom 2014 media briefing on August 12, 2014, where a trailer was shown.
Hugues Giboire, who is the art director of previous Ninja Theory game Heavenly Sword, also returned to work on the game. A Microsoft Windows version of the game was announced on 9 January 2015. Ninja Theory said they are considering 4K resolution and mod support for the Windows version.
The first ever “Early In-Development” gameplay was shown “Closed Doors” on Gamescom 2015 and after that published on Ninja Theory official YouTube channel
Hellblade is being worked on by 15 people from Ninja Theory as of early September 2015. According to the development team, the game’s development was started “afresh”, and some of the game’s original ideas were retired.
The game’s official title, Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice, was announced in March 2016.
