Now Playing: Senua's Saga: Hellblade II Everything To Know

Hellblade II is a sequel to the 2017 Hellblade that released exclusively on PS4 for console before coming to Xbox One a year later. Now, Microsoft owns Ninja Theory and the Hellblade series, which means Hellblade II is coming to Xbox Series X|S (and PC) at launch, and there is no word on a PS5 release.

Hellblade II will be available through Game Pass at launch, or it can be purchased outright for $50 USD.

In other Hellblade news, Microsoft just launched a new Hellblade merch line, including t-shirts, a pint glass, a notebook, and more.
