Behind blue eyes

Hellblade is being shown at pre-E3 event Judge's Week right now, but you'll get your very first look at Ninja Theory's hack-'n'-slash title on 10th June. As part of a new behind-the-scenes video, the Cambridge-based developer has outlined how it went about building the title's first vertical slice – and the many challenges that it faced along the way.

It's quite an interesting clip as it offers real insight into the production process, and seeing as the Heavenly Sword studio is attempting a different approach to this project – indie budget; AAA production values – it's fascinating to see how it's tackling various different problems. More to the point, judging by the brief clips of footage, the title's shaping up nicely.
