The official trailer for Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice has been posted by Playstation EU on youtube. The game is based on Celtic and Norse mythology and follows the story of Senua. What is most interesting about the game, however, is that the monsters you face and the hellish world you will explore are Sanua’s imagination due to her own mental illness, that has been further exacerbated by the trauma of a viking invasion.

Tackling the discussion of mental illness in this setting may be difficult but if they pull if off it should be for a very interesting game.  Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice will be release on the PS4 and windows on the 8th of August 2017.
