We still don’t know a whole lot about Hellblade, but we’re very excited to see what Ninja Theory has in store for us based on the developer diaries they’ve released over the past year. The combat shown here in the prototype video looks super smooth and the developers have described it as a completely skill based combat system which makes it all the more intriguing.
In a video interview published by Playstation Access earlier this year, the developers described the combat and world of Hellblade in a bit more detail.
We have a deep combat system that people can spend hours and hours exploring and mastering. A skill based combat system. We’re taking a lot of inspiration from one-on-one fighters. We really like the idea of an entire move set available to the player from the beginning. Fighting games are super technical and we want that kind of feel for Hellblade, so we’ve gone for an over the shoulder camera. It’s very close and intimate, we wanted to feel like every fight mattered, so it’s going to be you versus one, two or three enemies. We’re not talking about hordes of ten/fifteen enemies, it’s about taking on small numbers of enemies for it to be really tactical.
Hellblade will be available on the PS4 and PC when it releases sometime within the next year. Stay tuned to OnlySP on Facebook and Twitter for the gameplay reveal on June 10th.
