Senua's Saga: Hellblade 2 is one of the most anticipated Xbox exclusives in development right now. The original Hellblade was well received, with many players and critics praising the game's impactful narrative and main character.
Now, it seems that developer Ninja Theory is giving fans a slight tease about some new content for the game. Ninja Theory released a video on TikTok showing the actor for Senua in Senua's Saga: Hellblade 2 wearing a brand new costume while lip-syncing to a popular song.
The video definitely captures some of the eerie atmosphere present throughout Hellblade, with plenty of fast, jarring cuts to throw viewers off. The costume itself, being modeled by Senua's Saga actor Melina Juergens, is a sleeveless leather outfit with long wrist wraps. The costume looks expertly made, but it remains unclear how exactly the costume will play into Senua's Saga: Hellblade 2. In the game's initial reveal trailer, it appeared as though Senua herself was wearing a completely different costume, so maybe this new one will be unlockable over the course of the game.
Overall, Ninja Theory has been fairly silent in regards to Senua's Saga with not many concrete details about the game being shared with fans. While this new look is a welcome bit of news regarding the game, a bit more clarity would certainly be welcome. Still, it's nice to see any new information about the game regardless of the exact form it comes in. Though, it is interesting to see Ninja Theory branch into the world of TikTok to reveal this piece of news.
Plenty of major gaming brands have joined TikTok over the past few months as the app has gained popularity as of late. As such, it's quite possible that Ninja Theory could use the platform to share smaller bits of new information surrounding Senua's Saga: Hellblade 2. As of right now, Ninja Theory's account only has two videos posted, so it may take a bit more time for the team to put out more content.
Fans of the Hellblade series with access to TikTok may as well give Ninja Theory a follow, as there's always a chance some new information will debut there. Additionally, Ninja Theory's Twitter account has posted behind-the-scenes looks at the game as well, such as cinematic screenshots showing Senua bathed in some pretty impressive lighting effects.
Unfortunately, fans are just going to have to keep their eyes peeled for more information regarding the game for the time being. Hopefully, this recent TikTok video showcasing Senua's new costume is a sign that more information surrounding Senua's Saga: Hellblade 2 will be coming soon.
Ninja Theory has proven itself to be one of the top developers in gaming, and its subsequent Microsoft acquisition has gotten many fans curious. 2017's Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice broke new ground with its life-like performances and apt depiction of depression, self-doubt, and anxiety.
The studio likely wants to up the ante for Senua's Saga: Hellblade 2. There's not much known about the game at this point in time, and it seems that the game may have fallen subject to two very recent trends in the games industry.
