Senua’s Saga: Hellblade II is the new action adventure game developed by Ninja Theory and published by ‘Xbox Games Studios‘. Senua’s Saga: Hellblade II is said to be coming out… well we don’t know… or do we. Definitely not this year though. It will be coming out on the Xbox Series X and PC. A Xbox exclusive. This game has certainly got our attention. Let’s take a look.
Senua is back! They should have locked her up and threw away the keys. She crazy… but we like her. The story in Senua’s Saga: Hellblade II, off course follows the main characters Senua. Senua will probably be facing beings not from this world once again. It’s probably going to be an even bigger battle than last time. Now this would be a task by itself but it’s worse for Senua as she is dealing with psychosis. This effects her brain and how it processes information. So it’s tough to know what’s real and what’s not, whether what she is saying is true or not etc. It’s a problem. So we got an unusual adventure here. It’s not the same but imagine master chief has to face the banished but he suffers from Schizophrenia. Yeah think about it.
We just have to say it… the Senua’s Saga: Hellblade II trailer was bumping for sure. Who knew Senua got bars. She was spitting a whole mixtape in that trailer. By the way what you see in that trailer is all in engine. It looked outstanding. Only matched by the in engine trailer of Forza: Motorsport. If you haven’t seen the trailer then shame on you. We linked it down below. The work they have done even with the facial expressions. It’s excellent. X35 Earthwalker, the most talented person alive, has done motion capture before and let’s just say motion capture can allow for some awesome stuff. We are actually excited to learn more about Senua’s Saga: Hellblade II.
Here’s a more of what we do know. Senua’s Saga: Hellblade II is set in Iceland… so bring a jacket maybe. Unreal engine 5 is being used to develop Senua’s Saga: Hellblade II. The developers are planning to have actual locations or things in Iceland for the game. The team working on Senua’s Saga: Hellblade II is twice as big as the team who worked on the first Hellblade game. Also Senua’s Saga: Hellblade II will be on Xbox game pass. That’s awesome news for Xbox gamers. This game definitely seems to be going in deep and dark here.
Now we looked at the Senua’s Saga: Hellblade II trailer and there’s some details and clues in there. Senua is chanting and the symbols appear around a village. The same village that gets shown multiple times throughout the trailer. So clearly this village is important and Senua is there. Probably her headquarters or home. You may have also noticed that the symbol being formed from the chanting is the same symbols on the shields of the group of men or warriors. This symbol basically looks like the ‘helm of awe (or terror)’ which is an icelanic magical stave. It’s also referenced in germanic mythology too. This is all telling us that Senua and the people with her are getting real defensive. Think about, she is at a location and chants to set up those symbols around the village. This is defensive. Meaning they are going to get attacked. What’s also interesting is that the symbol reminds us of algiz runes which are connected to protection, safety, divinity and even the gods. Off course it’s all mythology but the Hellblade games deal with these things so it makes sense in the context of the game. Not only that but the trailer showed a rocky giant creature which was on a mountain. It looked at the soldiers who has the rune symboled shields. Maybe the rock giant thing is a guardian. Either way it looks like a stand against something.
Overall there isn’t that much information out there concerning Senua’s Saga: Hellblade II but there is hype for it and many gamers are showing interest in it. Senua’s Saga: Hellblade II hits heavy with the trailer and the contents of the last game so now we need to see heavy hitting gameplay. We want to know more and trust the developers with a now bigger team will do that. The developers ‘Ninja Theory’ have done an outstanding job so far. We at X35 Earthwalker are looking forward to Senua’s Saga: Hellblade II. Now Senua’s Saga: Hellblade II may have chanting, symbols and even mixtape but all of those are useless against… the ‘Earth Walk!’
