  • Microsoft is revisiting its fantastic E3 2021 conference with new announcements and input from developers like Ninja Theory.
  • The developers behind Senua's Saga: Hellblade II showed up to share some details on their biggest project yet.
  • The behind-the-scenes trailer is all the craziness you'd expect from Hellblade II, and looks very exciting.

The Xbox and Bethesda Games Showcase at E3 2021 was already packed to the brim with announcements and reveals, so Microsoft spun out some content into an "extended" version of the showcase. Already, one of the biggest participants of the extended showcase has been Ninja Theory, which has made an appearance to share a behind-the-scenes look at the making of Senua's Saga: Hellblade II.

Many players lamented the fact that Senua's Saga: Hellblade II didn't appear during the initial Xbox and Bethesda Games Showcase, but Ninja Theory wasn't quite ready to share more about the game. However, they were happy to prepare an incredible behind-the-scenes trailer, which helps get players amped for this ambitious project. In the trailer, we learn that Melina Juergens, the actress behind Senua, has been training tirelessly for over two years to prepare for Hellblade II.

Senua's Saga: Hellblade II doesn't have a release date right now, and is likely still several years away. We do know that the game is heading to Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, PC, and Xbox Game Pass. Ninja Theory is building Hellblade II with UnrealEngine 5, using the latest gaming technologies to ensure the best possible experience. When Senua's Saga: Hellblade II finally releases, it'll almost certainly become one of the best Xbox games ever released.
