Among the revelations at Sony’s Gamescom 2014 press conference was Hellblade, an action RPG from Ninja Theory, the studio behind the excellent Devil May Cry reboot, Enslaved: Odyssey to the West, and the 2007 PlayStation 3 exclusive, Heavenly Sword.
Hellblade is a dark fantasy (in the vein of Dark Souls) action RPG that will take advantage of the studio’s extensive motion capture experience to bring you impactful melee combat and a compelling story. The studio describes it as an “independent AAA” title, combining the niche focus and creative freedom of indie games with the technical resources and polish of a AAA title. That means it will be a smaller and more focused title, available digitally for a lower price than mainstream releases.
