Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice is getting a free VR update on PC


Vive and Oculus Rift support

Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice is getting a free VR update for the PC version next week. Launching on July 31, the VR mode for Hellblade will be the full game and not some extra bonus feature. It will be free for owners of the PC version and will have support for the Oculus Rift and HTC Vive headsets.

The reason for this update? Ninja Theory honestly thought it would be a cool addition for fans. In the video below, Dominic Matthews (commercial director for Ninja Theory) explains how there wasn't much of a business reason to include the VR mode, but the studio collectively felt it was great getting a different perspective on the action. "That's why we're giving it away for free, so as many people can experience it as possible."

The only limiting factor will be that this VR mode requires a GTX 1080 to run. Since VR games don't work well with lower framerates, it makes sense that there would be a suitably high system spec to get Hellblade running with the option. At least you won't need to shell out more for the option, though.
