Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice launched on PC and PlayStation 4 last year and garnered tremendous critical acclaim. Back then, the developer attributed the decision to focus on the two platforms as a limitation of the studio size. That changed today because Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice is now available on Xbox One with Xbox One X enhancements after a lengthy wait.
Updated March 17, 2018: Ninja Theory reached its goal of 50,000 units sold in a little under a week. This means that the team will donate $25,000 to charity.

Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice features three graphical modes on Xbox One X. You can either choose to render the game at native 4K resolution with dynamic scaling, with enhanced visual effects, or at 60 FPS.
If Ninja Theory manages to sell 50,000 units by April 18, 2018, then the developer will donate $25,000 to Mental Health America. However, if the team manages to sell 100,000 units, then it can donate $50,000 to the same organization. Hopefully Xbox One gamers will support the title and the cause.
Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice is a third-person action game from the makers of DMC: Devil May Cry, Enslaved: Odyssey to the West, and Heavenly Sword. Set in the Viking age, a broken Celtic warrior embarks on a haunting vision quest into hell to fight for the soul of her dead lover. According to the developer, the title was created in collaboration with neuroscientists and people who experience psychosis. This is why Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice puts you deep into Senua's mind in a journey that blurs the line between hallucinations and reality.
In our review we said, "Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice is a great game which lives up to Ninja Theory's strong history of producing excellent action titles". The game is only available digitally for $26.99.
