Senua’s Saga: Hellblade II Makes its Return to The Game Awards

The game was first announced at the event in 2019.

Two years after its original reveal at the 2019 Game AwardsSenua’s Saga: Hellblade II made another appearance at the 2021 Game Awards tonight.

The new trailer has the first actual gameplay seen from the project since its debut. The first Hellblade was a mix of sword-based melee combat and puzzle solving, but Senua’s Saga seems like a pretty significant escalation of that. But Senua was also alone for most of that game. Senua’s Saga has a lot more people running about and things get pretty dire. It’s dark, dreary, and kinda scary. There’s also a big man who gets set on fire.

Check out the trailer below:

Senua’s Saga is one of Ninja Theory’s ongoing projects since Microsoft acquired the studio back in 2018 along with Project: Mara. More recently, the studio launched an online multiplayer combat game called Bleeding Edge, which the studio stopped releasing content updates for back in January.
