Ninja Theory has released a new dev diary for its next production called Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice, scheduled for PlayStation 4 and PC. The video showcases the audio techniques used to create the world Hellblade, living reflection of Senua mind.

In this new trailer the development team focuses on showing us how they created the environments and soundscapes, as well as the techniques they used to achieve their mission. The intention was to represent the game world to turn it into a living reflection of Senua’s mind.

In the video we also witness the care and importance they give to the detail of each element in the production process.

In particular, Ninja Theory has explained that the game will use a perceptual phenomenon, called McGurk Effect, with the aim that whenever the mental state of the protagonist changes, so do the music and sounds.

Previously, Ninja Theory has also announced that Hellblade Senua’s Sacrifice has reached the Alpha stage of development: the game is playable in full from start to finish, even though the work has not yet been concluded.

The development will still take several months, some parts of the game need to be changed, and in general the studio wants to further improve the technical sector. There are many aspects that remain to be completed, also the testing phase is expected to be quite long, as the team wants to be sure to deliver players a finished title in every way.

Although there is still no definite date for its release, Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice is scheduled to debut sometime in 2017 on PlayStation 4 and PC.
