It's been a long time coming, but it's nearly here- Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice, the new action title from developers Ninja Theory, will be releasing this year, on August 8, for PC and PS4. The news comes via a Playstation Blog post, where the developed also chose to announce a price point and pre-order bonuses.

Those pre-ordering for PlayStation 4 will receive an exclusive Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice Dynamic Theme that depicts the iconic burning tree scene from the game.

If the price seems steep for a self-published independent game or worryingly cheap for a AAA blockbuster, there's a reason for that: Ninja Theory considers Hellblade is be an experimental affair with a smaller scope than most retail games but with the sort of high end production values and polish that rival anything on the market.

Pre-ordering on PC will net the customer an exclusive digital comic short, Hellblade: Senua's Song, written by Hellblade creative director Tameem Antoniades and featuring art from Eisner Award nominee Ben Templesmith. I'm sure you'll agree it's looking impressive in the new trailer above, especially considering this is a game from a team of 20 people. It is the story of Senua, a traumatised Celtic warrior journeying into the Viking underworld of hel.

In Hellblade, we are aiming to revive the lost space between indie and AAA gaming.

Hellblade Senua's Sacrifice launches this August on PC and PlayStation 4 in all regions.
