Learn A Bit More Of How The Psychosis Of Senua Is Brought To Life In Senua’s Saga: Hellblade II


More of the mental health aspects of Hellblade is further explored as we gear up for the release of Senua’s Saga: Hellblade II

There have never been any allusions that Senua’s Saga: Hellblade 2 was not going to be another entry to the IP that deals with mental health. Deals with it and in a realistic way instead of the ways many other forms of media handle it all. Ninja Theory has always taken great care with that from before with Hellblade the first time and we will see it all again on May 21st with the release of this sequel on the Xbox Series X|S and PC. For those who may not be fully in the know about this, though, we have another nice video breaking down some of these aspects to help the general gaming audience to know what others may be going through out there.

Buckle up as we have a long video for Hellblade II that shows off some gameplay and other elements of the game, but truly focuses on the psychosis that our protagonist is going through in the game. An aspect that the team made sure to capture perfectly one more time with the help of experts in the field and some people who are going through the same struggle or have managed to come out on the other side of it all. There truly is not much more to say about it that the video does not do a better job explaining. Have a look and see where Senua’s Saga: Hellblade II is going to take the character and how close it is going to be to giving everyone a look into another person's mental state to better empathize with them.

Do you think that players will fully understand what is going on in Hellblade II with all of this or will it be missed by many? Will this truly help more to understand what other humans might be going through out there or will it only be the basics for some to say they understand? Do you find studies and games like this helpful to experience so you can understand the human condition more? Head down to the comment section to discuss it all and then let the world know what you have to share to it all. We will offer up all that we can for Senua’s Saga: Hellblade 2 as we get it, but with the launch so soon, it might only be a few more minor pieces to keep us going. Be sure to come on back to catch all of that when it does come out, though.
