Hellblade, the third-person action game that Sony has secured as a timed PS4 exclusive, is also in development for PC.

Developer Ninja Theory, which is perhaps best known for its work on Capcom's DMC: Devil May Cry, revealed its Hellblade project during Sony's Gamescom 2014 press conference. Now, five months later, the studio has revealed its plans to build a version for PC--with the possibility of even supporting 4K resolution and mod support.

"I think PC offers us a level of freedom that we haven't had before," the studio's creative chief Tameem Antoniades told PC Gamer.

"We're looking at everything we do on this project and figuring out better ways of doing things compared to how the traditional AAA console model works. And consoles are following suit with PC, but I think they're years behind what things like Steam are doing."

He added: "I think we want to get to the point where we can invite players and fans to add to the game, and do things that are unexpected, and suggest ideas or add-ons that can make the game richer."

Cambridge-based Ninja Theory in one of the few independently owned triple-A studios operating in the UK. It made a name for itself with the PS3 exclusive Heavenly Sword--a game which some fans thought that Hellblade might have been a successor to (the studio denies any link).

Ninja Theory then went on to develop Enslaved: Odyssey to the West, before working on Capcom’s DMC: Devil May Cry.
