The Game Awards 2019 with a trailer. Surprisingly, the game was built
completely in-engine for the upcoming Xbox Series X. so Senua’s Saga: Hellblade
II is one of the first game confirmed for upcoming Xbox Series X.
– There’s not much to say about the upcoming game,
because nothing much has been released. As it could be seen in the trailer the
protagonist is Senua again, with a painted face and a menacing chant. Senua is
a Pict warrior from a Celtic-speaking tribe in the 8th century, in a place
which is now eastern and northern Scotland. After years of problems with her
father, Senua fall in love with a man from another village – called Dillon. She
left home to live with him. After some events, Vikings slaughtered the entire
village and killed her love as a sacrifice to their god. She decided to go to
Helheim – Viking’s hell – to confront the underworld goddess – Hela – and
defeat otherworldly entities to retrieve the soul of Dillon.
– Senua is plagued by her own inner darkness and
suffers from the condition – which she believes is a curse. She hears voices in
her head known as “Furies”, and some visions from her past. As the
main part of the game, Suna must battle these phantasms to continue her quest.
In order To represent the Senua’s psychosis perfectly,
Ninja Theory worked closely with neuroscientists, mental health specialists,
and people with the same conditions.
