Hellblade 2 Gets a New Gameplay Trailer, Release 2024
It is now December and that means The Game Awards are once again upon us. The Game Awards celebrates the past year in gaming, with titles such as Baldur’s Gate 3, The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom, Resident Evil 4, and Alan Wake 2 all up for multiple awards. It is also used to promote upcoming games, with many release dates for the coming year being revealed as well as world premieres. Hellblade 2 was first revealed at The Game Awards 2019 and after four years a release window has been announced.
During The Game Awards 2023, it was announced that Hellblade 2 will be released in 2024 on PC and Xbox Series X/S in a brand new gameplay trailer which gave players a first look at how it will control and what to expect when it launches next year. Unfortunately, PS5 players will miss out on Hellblade 2 due to Ninja Theory being owned by Microsoft Game Studios. The game will launch on day one on Xbox Game Pass on both console and PC.
Ninja Theory has a long history with Microsoft dating back to 2000 when Microsoft provided funding for its first game Kung Fu Chaos to help build a strong lineup for the launch of the original Xbox. Kung Fu Chaos is an underrated gem that doesn’t get talked about enough so if you ever have the chance to play it I highly recommend it if you like party-style games. The studio is also known for Enslaved: Odyssey to the West, another terrific game, and the 2013 Devil May Cry reboot.
