Ok, well maybe not a secret… but that doesn’t stop me from geeking out about this one. Ninja Theory recently showed footage from their own development diary titled “Combat Revisited” that shown none other than Daisy Ridleys‘ Star Wars stunt double being used as a combat model for the up and coming Hellblade game! Chloe Bruce agreed to help the Ninja Theory team out by translating her real time combat skills into the game. You can watch it all in the video below.
If you have not yet seen or heard anything about Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice, the experience is unlike anything else. Ninja Theory has done well to create a game that brings real mental illness to life and submerging the player into an environment that keeps you on your toes. The plot for the game is based on Celtic myth, and embarking on a journey of deep and personal struggles which manifest themselves in a way that only Senua can see.
This has been (for me) one of the most highly anticipated games, and one I cannot wait to get my hands on. I have to applaud Ninja Theory for their exceptional realism in the game as well. Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice was originally brought up at E3 last year and has been picking up momentum ever since.
The release date has not yet been set in stone, but it will be later on this year!
