Pre-Order Guide for Senua’s Saga: Hellblade 2.

Five years after its original announcement, pre-orders for Hellblade 2, Senua’s Saga, are finally available via Ninja Theory. The game’s reveal pre-dates the release of the exclusive console that it will be available on, making it a long-anticipated sequel to fans of the first game. The announcement of the sequel in 2019 took many by surprise and came just two years after the launch of the original game. With the release date now set for May 21, 2024, pre-orders for Hellblade 2 have only recently become available, causing concern among fans that the game’s release might be delayed.

However, the opening of pre-orders has somewhat allayed these fears. Hellblade 2 is a crucial component of Xbox’s strategy to capitalize on the scarcity of console exclusives, a period which has been further emphasized by the lack of new installments in PlayStation’s tentpole series until at least April 2025. The game’s digital-only release and shorter playtime of approximately eight hours have sparked controversy and discussion among fans and collectors. Despite its digital-only format, the game has been priced at $49.99, and it has been announced that it will also be available on Game Pass on its release day.

This makes it unnecessary for Game Pass subscribers to purchase a separate copy of the game. Finally, it is important to note that Hellblade 2 will not be released on PS5, and its digital-only format was chosen to keep production costs lower and to make the game according to the studio’s vision, given its relatively shorter story length.
