Hellblade: Ending Explained, What Happened
There’s a lot going on in Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice, and unless you take the time to really sit down and understand Senua and the suffering she endures, a lot of it may come across as confusing. If you’ve yet to play the game, Ninja Theory’s latest title places players into the shoes of Senua, a young woman who is plagued by severe psychosis and is dealing with the loss of her beloved. What follows is a journey into hell in order to save his soul after his death, but not all is as it seems.
Since she suffers from hallucinations, it’s difficult to trust what you see. The whole story twists and turns as you move forward, taking down demons, overcoming obstacles, and finally coming face to face with what lies in the center of it all. The end tells a lot about Senua, so it’s important to sit back and really take it in. For those who maybe sped through and didn’t take in everything that happened before the credits rolled, we’re going to quickly break down Hellblade’s ending for you.
We must note that after this point there are major story spoilers, we will not be going the vague route for this explanation. If you’d rather see the ending on your own first and see what you make of it, go play then return later if you’d like. If you just really want to see what happened and don’t care about spoilers, continue on.
