Epic Games and Ninja Theory have released an in-depth behind-the-scenes video on the making of Hellblade.

The video delves into Ninja’s Theory’s urge to create a visual story, taking the player “beyond Senua’s costume” and into what makes her a “real human.”

This concept spills over into the environment, which is it’s own character of shorts due to being a dark, living, breathing world.

The Unreal Engine 4 developed title tells the story of Celtic warrior Senua and her journey into a Hell which is the “manifestation of Senua’s mental illness.”

Her psychosis will cause the player to experience first hand her “hallucinations, delusions, anxiety and depression.”

Hellblade is slated for release in 2016 on PC and PS4.
