During Sony’s Gamescom conference yesterday Ninja Theory announced their new title exclusive to PlayStation 4.

Hellblade will be an independently published title that’s coming to PlayStation 4 as a timed-exclusive.

Ninja Theory’s Twitter account gave a few more details about the game, such as the protagonist, seen in the trailer, is called Senua, and the trailer was actually created in Unreal Engine 4.

Following the reveal of the trailer yesterday the game’s blog was updated and the dev’s promised to give players ‘a deeper character in a twisted world with brutal, uncompromising, combat.’

You can watch the trailer for the game below, which shows off a the new female protagonist amongst some ritualistic stones, clutching a sword, with the remains of a body hung out on hooks. Gruesome. You should also check out the website which has more artwork and information.

A ‘Hellblade Introduction’ video was also released, which assures us that the devs will ‘share the development process’ with us as they continue to make the game.
