According to an announcement from an Xbox representative, the sequel to Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice, Senua's Saga: Hellblade 2 would be released for both PC and Xbox X. People have been expecting this, as the game was going to be part of the Xbox Game Pass Service, which heavily relies on PC. However, an official announcement is still pretty nice. Microsoft and Xbox are currently expanding their market into PC in order to create a united front again other services like PlayStation, Switch or even Stadia.

In the journey, she would have to face various supernatural enemies, puzzles, and challenges to be able to progress. The game was released on all console systems including the Switch.

Hellblade was well received by both critics and fans – it won three categories in The Game Awards of 2017. The best part of the game is probably its theme and design, which revolves around psychosis and the details related to it.

Senua’s Saga: Hellblade 2 was announced sometime earlier during this year’s The Game Award: it is a direct sequel to Senua’s sacrifice. There haven’t been many details revealed so far, but it is clear that the upcoming game has a much bigger budget and production value. Armed by the power of the next generation of console, the trailer was made using the game engine itself instead of pre-rendered clips.
