Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice – the exciting independently developed adventure from Heavenly Sword developer Ninja Theory – will battle its demons starting 8th August on the PlayStation 4, with pre-orders open now. The title promises to pit the titular Celtic warrior against the Viking underworld Hel, and will tackle taboo topics such as mental health throughout.

The game’s been built by a smaller team of 20 people, but is targeting top-tier production values as evidenced by the trailer embedded above. It’ll retail for $29.99/£24.99, and if you do pre-order on the PlayStation Store you’ll receive a dynamic theme centring on the burning tree scene from the game. Presumably we’ll see more at E3 2017 next week.
