Senua’s Saga: Hellblade is expected to be released very soon, and developer Ninja Theory has revealed the PC system requirements. The minimum requirement is relatively low, so any mid-range gaming PC should be able to handle it, but it does not appear that the studio believes you should play it that way.

Senua's Saga: HellBlade 2 PC Requirements Revealed

“We have crafted a high fidelity experience of cinematic immersion, and therefore recommend the ‘High’ graphics preset,” Ninja Theory said on Steam. “From recreating real locations in Iceland, to digitizing our actors and their costumes, we’ve brought Senua’s world to life in incredible detail.”

“That’s our goal [with Hellblade 2]: to make it feel cinematic,” VFX Director Mark Slater-Tunstill told the site. “We knew we never wanted to be 60 [fps]. You can set it up on the PC if you really want, but that’s your decision.”

Game Publisher Ninja Theory previously announced that Hellblade 2 for Xbox Series X/S will be restricted to 30 frames per second, and while the PC version may be capable of running at higher framerates, the system requirements may be targeting 30: In an interview with German website GamePro, the team stated that limiting the game to 30 frames per second was “a conscious decision” to give the game a more film-like appearance.

From the developer’s perspective, it could be a good decision but players are now used to playing games at 60 or higher FPS games. So, maybe the game will appear not that smooth to them this is the field they should look into.

The Game is all set to make its debut on May 21, 2024, you can pre-order the game through the official website of Steam or by the Embedded link in the article.
