Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice has changed a lot over the past couple of years, but it's really starting to come together now. After going back to the drawing board, Ninja Theory's now published a new development diary which showcases the title's upgraded combat. And it's looking good, with Senua's agility brought to the forefront rather than her strength.

The studio stresses that it's still got plenty of work to do, but we particularly like the way that there's no heads-up display – all of the information that you need during combat is displayed using either visual tricks or 3D audio. There's still no release date attached to the outing, but the Cambridge-based dev seems to have settled upon the game's systems and art direction now.

The final stage, we assume, is assembling all of those components into a complete campaign.
