Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice – Story and Ending Explained
Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice is the latest video game from Ninja Theory, the team that brought players games like Heavenly Sword, Enslaved: Odyssey to the West, and DmC: Devil May Cry. While the studio is constantly lauded for their approach to gameplay, especially in the combat department, they also take special care when molding the stories around their experiences. In the case of Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice, the experience is actually molded around a dark, yet profoundly deep, narrative that centers on a young woman in a world of hurt.
The nature of the story in Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice can make things a bit confusing to those who may not be familiar with her affliction, or those who maybe didn’t turn the sound up (sound plays an important role in this game). To help those players who’ve journeyed through Senua’s personal hell (along with those who just want to see what happened), we’re going to do a quick breakdown of the story to hopefully have things make more sense for you.
Naturally, us breaking this down will mean that we must spoil the events that transpire throughout the 8-10 hour journey, so if you’d rather get all the details from the game first, we suggest that you go play, then return for some clarification. If you don’t plan on playing anytime soon and just need to see what happened, continue on.
