  • Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice gets its biggest update on PC four years after its release.
  • It brings support for ray tracing using Nvidia DLSS and AMD FSR.

Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice is a game that spoke volumes when it first released. Ninja Theroy crafted a truly unique story and by the ending, had many players shed a tear from what the main character endured. Following its relase on the Xbox even more gamers got to be a part her journey and experience the roller coaster ride of emotions.

The PC version was released alongside the PS4 version back in 2017, and after all these years, Ninja Theory pays homage to the brave Celtic warrior on the PC by making her journey even more memorable.

In its latest tweet, Ninja Theory outlines how it added in ray tracing (RTX) with support for Nvidia's Deep Learning Super Sampling (DLSS) and AMD's FidelityFX Super Resolution (FSR).

The basic gist of the above features is that you'll be able to get better FPS while also getting better visuals, all with the help of AI and machine learning, regardless of your graphics processor.

In addition, Ninja Theory also released a quality of life change for the game, which adds a plethora of accessibility options, including color blindness settings and remappable controls.

The update is readily available on all the digital stores where Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice is available for purchase, so if you are eager to try the update, give the game a reinstall and it should be good to go!

  • I wonder if the gamepass version was updated. I think I only purchased the VR version on steam.
  • I was always planning to play this again when the release of Hellblade II becomes imminent. This makes me even more excited to do so.
  • I would pass this game. I prefer to play HB 2 instead of playing this again.
  • If I could only play one then certainly the sequel would be my choice but, if you have the time, I'd definitely suggest another play-through of the original, especially if it's going to look even better now. One good thing is that it's a smaller game so you don't have to invest too much time to finish it. I suspect the sequel will be substantially bigger in every way.
  • Waiting on HB2
