In a new blog about the game on the official Xbox Wire website, Ninja Theory studio head Dom Matthews stated that the game would not be getting a physical release, and would be available for $49.99.
“Senua’s Saga: Hellblade II will be a game crafted from the heart – a game similar in length to the first Hellblade, with a focused narrative, and sold digital-only at a price of $49.99,” Matthews said.
“And you can once again expect to join Senua in understanding her world through perception puzzles led by her experiences of psychosis, in brutal and visceral combat and in traversal gameplay, this time across the harsh but beautiful landscapes of 10th Century Iceland.
“Crucially, all these elements are intertwined in a unique visual and audio experience, where everything is in service of Senua’s story. So, you can expect more of the same, but this time with the support to push our ambitions for immersion, fidelity and richness far further than before. ”
The original Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice was also initially released digital-only, with a physical edition following a year later.
Matthews’ statement also confirms Hellblade 2 will last as long as its predecessor.
According to How Long to Beat, players took eight hours on average to beat the original game.
Senua’s Saga: Hellblade 2 is in its “final months of development”, according to Matthews, and will be released on May 21.
