One Of 2017's Best Games May Be Headed To Xbox One
It looks like Hellblade is on the way to Microsoft's console.
Ninja Theory's critically acclaimed action-adventure game, Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice, may be on the way to Xbox One. The game has, up until now, only been available on PS4 and PC, but the Taiwan Game Software Rating Information board (via Gematsu) recently posted a rating for an Xbox One version, potentially outing an upcoming port.
Lending further weight to a possible Xbox One version, a new rating for Hellblade has also appeared on the Australian Classification board. Ninja Theory hasn't officially announced that it will release the title on Microsoft's console, but the fact that new ratings for it have appeared on two separate ratings boards makes it seem likely that Xbox One owners will soon have a chance to experience the gripping adventure.
Hellblade first released for PS4 and PC in August 2017. The game puts players in the role of the eponymous Senua, a Celtic warrior who embarks on a vision quest to come to grips with the death of her family. GameSpot awarded it an 8 out of 10 in our Hellblade review and called the title "a spellbinding and sympathetic game about loss and redemption." Hellblade was also selected as one of GameSpot's top 10 games of 2017.
"Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice is a game that forces you out of your comfort zone, and for all the right reasons. Presenting a troubled young woman's tempestuous journey of self-discovery and redemption through her eyes, developer Ninja Theory's 'indie-AAA' experiment takes a lot of risks when telling its harrowing, introspective story about the often lonely struggles of suffering from past trauma," wrote GameSpot critic Alessandro Fillari.
