Independent developer Ninja Theory has announced that its forthcoming third person hack and slash title, Hellblade will be coming to the PC platform. Hellblade had been previously announced to arrive on PS4.
Ninja Theory creative chief, Tameem Antoniades, spoke to PC Gamer about the merits of bringing the game to PC compared with releasing their work on consoles. Antoniades also mentioned wanting to support PC related features such as 4K resolution, and possibly enable modding on the game.
The short teaser trailer shows a woman we assume is the game’s heroine readying herself for a battle against some dark force. A sword, which is probably the titular blade is in evidence. No actual gameplay was shown, but considering the studio’s past games, such as DMC and Enslaved, it is sure to be an action packed, high adrenaline adventure. I guess it will also feature an ass-kicking, femme fatale and big sword, but I’ve been know to be wrong occasionally.
It’s still early days, however, and no release date has been announced, but if you fancy yourself in leather armor and helmet, wielding a big sword, you’ve got something to look forward to.
