Hellblade FAQ

Please find below our most commonly asked questions regarding the pre-order and release of Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice.

Hellblade is an independently developed, AAA quality game created by a team of 20 developers. Our aim is to bring back the mid-size game, so Hellblade is about half the size of a regular AAA game and sold at half the price.

Although we haven’t finished balancing the game yet, we expect a playthrough of Hellblade to take 7-9hrs.

By going digital-only we can ensure that we keep the cost low for players, whilst more of the price of Hellblade comes directly back to us the developer to reinvest in making more games in the future.

Hellblade is available at digital-only for both PlayStation 4 & PC.


For PlayStation you can only buy from the PlayStation Store:

PlayStation Store EU

PlayStation Store US


For PC you can buy from Steam, GOG.com and Humble Store:
