- Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice is a third-person narrative-driven action-packed title by Ninja Theory.
- The game has been discounted to a mere $2.99 on the Xbox Store at the moment, which is great pricing.
- The much-awaited sequel to the action-adventure makes landfall later this year.
There’s Microsoft Flight Simulator 2024, there’s Avowed, there’s Stalker 2: Heart of Chornobyl, and then there’s also Senua’s Saga: Hellblade 2 that is slated to arrive for the Xbox Series X|S exclusively this year—one of the most highly anticipated games in the world right now. If you plan on making the best out of that title, make sure to have gone through the first game first, and what better time than now to try it out in case you didn’t get a chance to beat it earlier?
The fact of the matter is, Xbox has slapped on a riveting new discount on Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice, the 2017-released action-adventure by Ninja Theory, and a masterpiece at that in terms of narration, story, and overall execution. Standing at an 81 Metascore on Metacritic, the first Hellblade has received a massive price cut in recent times, having its MSRP reduced to $2.99 as opposed to the $29.99 default.
As I dug a little further, it turns out that Steam is also hosting a discount on its official storefront — an even better one than Xbox — where the title is a whopping 90% off at the time of writing, so PC players are in for a delight as well. However, if you make your way to the PlayStation side of things, Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice’s pricing is the MSRP default—no cuts in there to factor into account.

I must tell you, Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice isn’t for everyone, simply because it tries to achieve something groundbreaking, something that most other games, no matter their scale, fail to take notice of. It’s a portrayal of mental illness at its worst, with great emphasis on our protagonist struggling with the voices in her head, literally. And to complement that unique narrative direction is the precise and collected combat of Hellblade, and that’s the part you’ve got to witness yourself.
Now, one of the reasons you should be getting this game if you didn’t already is that Senua’s Saga: Hellblade 2 is coming out in May this year, as per sources who revealed the release date of the title to eXputer anonymously. It’s one of the biggest Xbox exclusives that the company is looking forward to launching in 2024, so you better not miss it.
Oh, and for those not in the know, Ninja Theory’s director Tameem Antoniades said in an interview, “I think Hellblade 2 will make [the first] Hellblade look like an indie game.” Do you really think you should be missing out on a title of this stature? I don’t.
