Ninja Theory, creators of Heavenly Sword and Enslaved: Odyssey the West, have released a video about the process that goes into crafting the combat in their latest game – Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice.
Hellblade has changed dramatically since it was first shown off at Sony’s Gamescom conference back in 2014. The combat has been reworked to flow better than it did before as well as rewarding players for their skill. Ninja Theory introduced Cholé Bruce, Daisy Ridley’s stunt double in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, to see whether or not Senua’s movements were realistic. This proved to the developers that they could make the combat work perfectly for Senua.
Check out the developer diary below. Even if you aren’t a big fan of the action genre, this video is still worth watching. Personally, I can’t say I was very excited for this game prior to this video coming out. Now I am looking forward to hearing more about Hellblade in the future.
Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice is set for release in 2016.
