Hellblade Dev Diary Focuses on Combat Inspirations

Ninja Theory released a new development diary focusing on how they are making the combat uniquely visceral for their upcoming Hellblade.

The video focuses on a small action packed scene within the game and how the devs used it as a testbed to refine the combat experience overall. There’s footage of the motion capture studio, the damaged character models and how Hellblade will convey health. Some of the major motion picture inspirations for the game include martial arts films such as Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon and The Raid: Redemption.

Hellblade is scheduled to launch this year for PlayStation 4 and PC.
