First Gameplay Trailer for Hellblade Released

Ninja Theory has been hard at work on their first independent title in which they are both developing and publishing. While it’s an exciting notion, we still haven’t seen any gameplay footage, at least until today. Ninja Theory has released the first gameplay trailer for the upcoming action title, and it doesn’t disappoint.

The trailer shows what looks like a psychological thriller that delves into the issue of mental illness. If anything, combat reminds us of something like Infinity Blade in that it’s one-on-one battles with beings of unusual and freakish size. But it’s not all about combat as you’ll have to deal with the mental break and illusions the main character will deal with.

Unfortunately, this PlayStation 4 and PC title doesn’t have a release date just yet, but hopefully we’ll learn more at E3 next week. In addition, the 12th developer diary has been released, showing additional combat and explaining more about the plot.
