One of our most anticipated games of the year finally has a release date. Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice, the long-awaited new game from the guys at Ninja Theory, will launch on August 8th for Steam, GoG, and PSN – it’s digital only. If that doesn’t get you intrigued, wait until you hear the price.
£24.99, or $29.99. That’s almost unbelievable for an indie game with AAA stylings, something we discovered when we talked to the developers a while back. If you’ve seen any of the preview materials for it so far, you know that it certainly looks the business with its motion-capture, but the jury is out on the gameplay so far.
Talking about the game and its unique price, Ninja Theory’s Dominic Matthews said the following:
“Our aim is to bring back the mid-size game, so Hellblade is half the size of a AAA game, but sold at half the price.
“By going digital only we can assure that we keep costs low for you, plus more of your money comes directly back to us to reinvest in new games. If we can make Hellblade a success, others will follow to make games a richer, more varied place for both gamers and developers.”
