Hellblade Senua’s Sacrifice is one of the best games on current-gen consoles and has been a financial success. Now developer Ninja Theory has announced Hellblade Senua’s Sacrifice VR Edition.
The Hellblade Senua’s Sacrifice VR Edition will be available for Oculus Rift and HTC Vive later this month.
Not only that, those who have already bought the game on Steam will get the VR Edition for free.
The VR update for those who already own the game will roll out on July 31, 2018. According to Ninja Theory, the Hellblade Senua’s Sacrifice VR Edition is not a demo or a side story and is identical to the original game.
Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice will come to VR on Oculus Rift and HTC Vive on July 31st! If you own or buy Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice on Steam, the VR Edition will be included for free!
While the VR version will stick with the over the shoulder perspective of the game but, players will be able to move their headset around to check out the environment.
Speaking of the game, Ninja Theory noted that they were surprised with the success of the PC version.
Chief creative director Tameem Antoniades noted that the studio was anticipating the PS4 version of Hellblade to be much more successful compared to the PC version and yet they were proven wrong as the sales split between the two was closer than what the studio anticipated.
We did see this as primarily a PlayStation 4 title, and we thought that platform would be the bulk of our sales, and in fact it was pretty evenly split. So going forward, we will make sure that we get our interface and everything right for the PC audience as well.
He also noted that the team behind the game was surprised by the fact that so many players played the game with mouse and keyboard and initially they didn’t optimize the game for mouse and keyboard.
Hellblade Sensua’s Sacrifice is an action-adventure game developed by Ninja Theory for PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
