Ninja Theory shared a scene from their upcoming PS4 game Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice. In this scene they are revealing a new look for Senua based on their aim to make her one of the most believable characters ever seen in a video game.

Senua is a Celtic Warrior who journeys into Viking heartland while struggling with trauma and psychosis. It is important for Ninja Theory to portray the physical, emotional, and mental trials of her quest in both the character model and the representation of her reality. An example of this is the voices that Senua hears in the scene. These voices have been recorded binaurally which means that if you listen to them with headphones on they will sound as if they are in the 3D space around you.

But there’s more to this scene than meets the eye. Ninja Theory showcased a new technology that allows the actress to perform the scene live and in real-time directly within the game world. As far as we know no one has done this with a character of such fidelity before. You can watch the scene come to live in Ninja Theory’s dev diary below.

Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice is Ninja Theory’s first independently developed and self-published title. they have a small team of 16 people creating the game.
