Hellblade is coming to PC


08 Jan Hellblade is coming to PC

Today we are happy to announce that Hellblade will be coming to PC, alongside the previously announced PlayStation 4 version. We’re excited to be bringing Hellblade to PC gamers and welcoming them into the Hellblade development journey. PC offers us fantastic opportunities to engage players in playtesting, usability testing and modding. We plan on grasping these opportunities with both hands to make Hellblade as good as it possibly can be for our fans.

      Shinobi, it was never a PS4 exclusive. Development started with the PS4 in mind due to the limitations that come with such a small development team. I do wonder if it’s currently a timed PS4 exclusive, or if the PC version will release around the same time.

      From the beginning, Ninja Theory said “coming FIRST to PS4”. It was pretty obvious it would not be an exclusive, there’s nothing to be mad about.

      Since when is bringing a game out to multiple platforms a ‘betrayal’? Now if the PS4 version were canceled in favor of a PC version I would understand, but that’s not the case. The PS4’s getting the game, as planned, and now the PC’s getting the game AS WELL.

      And you darn right PC’s for nerds, considering it’s us nerds who run the world. 🙂

      Ninja Theory should target very high end visuals on this, 30 fps at least for current gen hardware. worked for Heavenly sword, Enslaved, and DmC. I expect no less than the quality from those games. some tessellation and extra HBAO would do wonders for the PC experience.

      You are getting the game, why do you have such a problem with it coming to PC?

      This is not betrayal, this is you wanting to spite gamers on other platforms, just to have the experience for yourself and your chosen system.

      PC is no more for ‘nerds’ than any gaming platform is. Drop the prejudices.

    Excellent news!. PC definitely has the best platform for the best visuals, using technologies such as the ones from Nvidia (HBAO+, PhysX, etc), uperb resolutions (4K) and the best FPS (better at least than PS4 in most games). PS4 is not a bad platform, but will never win PC in terms of graphical detail and performance, the way it is now.

      “Titles for Xbox 360 must ship at least simultaneously with other video game platform, and must have at least feature and content parity on-disc with the other video game platform versions in all regions where the title is available. If these conditions are not met, Microsoft reserves the right to not allow the content to be released on Xbox 360.” -Microsoft’s Content Submission and Release Policy

      This was from before August 2011 but I haven’t heard anything about the policy changing since then. Hopefully Microsoft pull their heads out of their asses and don’t screw over their own customers because of this crap.

    That’s nearly $70 MILLION DOLLARS from the pockets of PC gamers ONLY.

    The blogosphere is buzzing about this and well deserved. With the power available in PCs today, I imagine the platform is a passionate developers dream. Enslaved while it didn’t sell like a blockbuster, is getting noticed by PC fans on Steam and the response is very positive. I think Ninja :Theory has found its home on PC..

      I dont have a powerful pc so i pirate games i’m interested in if they come to pc just to test them out (lower everything and still getting 25-30 fps only). If i like em, most of the times i end up buying them on consoles.

      Not gonna do this time, PS4 straight out of the game. Congrats to NT for making this available to a wider range of players. I just hope one development process does not impact the other and i sincerely hope the pirating levels don’t go astronomical on this one.

    PC gamers always beg for pc version at first which makes an illusion that many people will buy game on pc and when you put your game on pc they will pirate it at last. Ninja theory, you are fooled! Since PS4 cannot be pirated why do you provide free game?

    • jibay
      Posted at 08:52h, 09 January Reply

      Well, the things are a bit different than you think on PC.
      Basically everyone is a pirate on PC: movies, music, games, books or whatever, I don’t know people who sometimes, just don’t ‘grab’ it and think “Who cares?”.
      Luckily, more you find “good” legal offers, less you think like that. For games, Steam is a good ‘legal offer’ and there’s many customers who just pay for their games.

      So, for you, what’s the worse, Hellblade which sold 2M copies exclusively on PS4, or sold 3M copies and getting pirate 2M times? Just a hint, a pirated copy doesn’t cost any money to Ninja Theory.

Secondly, to all you salty Sony fans in here: why? It’s not like your version of the game is going to disappear just because it’s multi-platform.

I’m not sure what everyone screaming about Steam sales, but i see myself pre-ordering every new game that i wanted to play without waiting for sales. First i wanted to play them and secondly, i support my favorite devs.
