Senua’s Saga Hellblade 2 is currently in development at Xbox Game Studios, and marks the return of warrior Senua after Hellblade Senua’s Sacrifice , released in 2017.
After the excellent reception of the first title, which saw the combative protagonist suffering from psychosis make room in the kingdom of the dead to resurrect her husband Dillion, Ninja Theory did not fail to keep the interest of fans alive with the publication of a striking image that shows the cinematic quality of the lights.
We know that to lend the features to the fierce Senua in the second chapter of her adventures will be the actress Melina Juergens , already the protagonist of a video that showed her interesting transformation into the Pitta warrior .
Today, also thanks to the contribution of Gamespot , it is possible to see, in a new video published by the actress on her channel Diary of a Digital Hooman , the interesting training Juergens is undergoing to ensure players a first level videogame experience.
In the video, which represents the second episode of the series dedicated to the title, we can appreciate the quality of the motion capture and the numerous trainings to which the actress underwent .
We go from exercises with weapons such as swords and shields , to real fight training, in single or group, with the help of mannequins to take the place of the enemies that will not give respite to the brave warrior.
To make Senua’s movements as realistic as possible, in hand-to-hand combat and in those with weapons, Ninja Theory has enlisted the help of some stuntman , involving the actress in a real “Warrior Masterclass” to allow you to learn techniques appropriate to the narrative context.
The steps that the software house is following, as evidenced by the video contribution, demonstrate a remarkable attention to detail, to the actor’s performance and to the performance of the fights .
In all likelihood, Melina Juergens’ expressive abilities will not fail to be exploited in a renewed focus on the issues already addressed in the first chapter, such as the effects of mental illness on the psyche and body .
As for the setting of Senua’s Saga Hellblade 2 , we already know something: thanks to a video we can admire the cold and beautiful scenarios that will be the stage for the new adventures of the indomitable warrior. p>
Ninja Theory continues to be stingy with news after the reveal two years ago, but we know that the game will harness the power of the Unreal Engine 5, as confirmed by Microsoft itself.
The software house, which has long been under the wing of the Redmond giant, is also working on the ambitious Project Mara which will have a photorealistic graphic appearance and will be based on real scenarios.
Senua’s Saga Hellblade 2 doesn’t have a release date yet , but we know it will arrive on PC and Xbox Series X | S in the near future and there we hope that it will once again be able to drag players into Norse hell thanks to the depth of its content.
While waiting for the sequel, you can give Senua’s first adventure a chance by taking advantage of the Amazon price on Hellblade Senua’s Sacrifice .
