'Hellblade Senua's Sacrifice VR' Coming Soon + PS4 HDR Now
by Dylan Blight
Developer Ninja Theory has announced two updates for last years Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice.
Right around the corner on July 31st you'll be able to play Hellblade VR Edition. And no, it's not just a mode or a snippet of the game -- it's the entire thing in VR. It's coming to Oculus Rift and HTC Vive and Ninja Theory are recommending a minimum of a GTX 1080 graphics card to run the VR version, which is probably why PS VR simple won't be able to handle the experience.
What's even better is it's completely free for those that already own the game, or buy the game in the future. It's not a standalone version of the game.
If you're a little let down (like I am) that PS VR won't be getting Hellblade VR there was some good news for PlayStation owners today. A new patch for Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice on PlayStation 4 has added HDR support among a couple bug fixes. Not to say the game already wasn't fantastic looking -- but I'm sure the HDR support for those with TV's that support it will get an even more visually interesting and visceral experience out of Hellblade now .
We put Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice at number two in our Top 10 Games of 2017 list and I can only see the VR mode making the journey even more intense, interesting, horrifying and engrossing.
