Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice Donating All Proceeds Today To Mental Health Charity

All purchases of the game tomorrow will be donated to charity


Developer Ninja Theory released a poetic accolades trailer for its recently released third-person action game Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice today, choosing to focus on player experiences with the title as opposed to the press quotes and scores that the industry is very used to seeing after any major game release. The game was designed with mental illness in mind (seriously, no pun intended), therefore sought to reimagine what it must be like.

Ninja Theory also announced today that it will be donating all of the money made by the game tomorrow in celebration of World Mental Health Day.

In an effort to continue raising awareness around the issue, each and every sale of Hellblade will be donated to Rethink Mental Illness.

Ninja Theory launched a new trailer for the game yesterday showcasing player submitted photos, taken using the game's photo mode. If you've been holding back on picking it up, today is the ideal opportunity to grab an excellent game and do some good. Considering how heavy the game is with its themes of mental illness (its protagonist Senua is struggling with psychosis, which is the deeply rooted premise of the game), it's a nice touch to see the studio wanting to give back in some capacity. Now that many people have had a chance to play the game, a new trailer has arrived dedicated to them.

Hellblade was generally well-received, particularly in its depiction of how mental health can affect someone's life, albeit in a fantasy setting.

Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice is available now for PlayStation 4 and Steam users.
