Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice told a dark and beautiful story rife with grief and loss, and it quickly established itself as one of the best Xbox games.
Xbox Games Studios and Ninja Theory are returning to continue the tale in Senua's Saga: Hellblade II. This evolution of Senua's journey has every chance of delivering a gorgeous and epic experience, especially as a title developed exclusively for Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, and PC.
There are still a lot of unknowns about Senua's Saga: Hellblade II, but here's everything we know so far. Source: Xbox Game Studios. Senua's Saga: Hellblade II is a first-party Xbox Game Studios title developed in-house by the talented developers at Ninja Theory. The sequel to the fan favorite Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice, Hellblade II continues the story of Senua (once again performed by the wonderfully talented Melina Juergens) with an expanded scope and world.
There's a lot to look forward to from this highly anticipated title, and Ninja Theory is pulling out all the stops to ensure it meets its ambitions. Announced during The Game Awards 2019, Senua's Saga: Hellblade II is being developed by a team over twice the size of the team that worked on the first title, numbering over 40 in total.
The extra hands are needed to build Hellblade II from the ground up with Epic Games' Unreal Engine 5 for current-gen gaming hardware. Everything we've seen of Senua's Saga: Hellblade II indicates the action-adventure game is going to be a technical and visual showcase, especially with its scenic location of Iceland.
There are still a lot of unknowns about Senua's Saga: Hellblade II and its overall gameplay experience, but it's already assured of a place on our list of best upcoming Xbox games due to the little we know and the quality of its predecessor.
