Senua’s Saga: Hellblade 2 has gotten an update, and a montage of behind-the scenes footage.
Shown at Microsoft’s Xbox Games Showcase Extended 2021, a new montage showed a mixture of concept footage, in-engine clips, and behind-the-scenes clips. We learned that lead actress Melina Juergens has undergone more than a year of combat training for her role as Senua.

With the game still in the thick of development, no new extended gameplay footage has been shown. “What we’re doing right now is building a good chunky slice of the game,” said studio founder Tameem Antoniades, “before we then move into full production to build out the rest.”
Hellblade 2 is the next game from Xbox’s UK first-party studio, Ninja Theory, and continues the story of Senua. Announced at the Game Awards in 2019, very little has been seen of Hellblade 2 since. Ninja Theory has confirmed, though, that Hellblade 2 is being built using Unreal Engine 5, the spectacular looking new game creation engine created by Epic Games that was recently showcased.
