Hellblade is an upcoming video game being developed and published by Ninja Theory for the PlayStation 4. The game was announced at Sony's Gamescom 2014 media briefing on August 12, 2014, where a trailer was shown. The game is set for release in 2015 and is described as "independent AAA" game by the developer.
The story is based on Celtic myth. The trailer is focused on Senua, Hellblade’s protagonist, as she embarks on a very personal journey through a hellish underworld.
The game 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 their new digital game, 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.
