Watch the Hellblade Combat Developer Diary:
The new video showcases the latest development diary for Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice, with various members of the team at Ninja Theory giving an inside look at how the studio is approaching combat in its upcoming title, with an update from the studio explaining that development has included “painstaking work from our combat designer to iterate over and over on the feel of Senua’s moves in battle.”
Ninja Theory’s Dominic Matthews also explained on the PlayStation Blog that work has also extended into recording stunts through motion-capture, hand-drawn animation, and more to “bring through both character and realism” to the game’s combat.
Hellblade was announced in 2014 at gamescom and is slated for a simultaneous release on PS4 and PC some time this year.
