Hellblade to release August 8

Blood and guts

Ninja Theory today announced that Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice will release on PC and PlayStation 4 in early August. The digital-only title will launch on August 8 at the more-than-palatable price point of $30.

Hellblade‘s release date news comes alongside a short new trailer, which fully leans into the game’s ‘grime and grit’ aesthetic. Senua, the traumatized Celtic protagonist, travels to hell and back — at least in her own warped vision of reality — as she attempts to enact revenge on the Viking warriors who slaughtered her people.

Because it’s 2017 and people still love to pre-order games, you can do just that for Hellblade on the PlayStation Store, Steam, and GOG. PlayStation pre-orders come with an exclusive digital theme, while PC platforms get a “digital comic short.”
