The developers at Ninja Theory are taking their commitment to realistic environments to a new level, quite literally playing with their food. The team posted a picture on Twitter showing off the use of various kitchen items to create imperfections of Icelandic terrain for Senua’s Saga: Hellblade II.
Hellblade II: Pushing the Limits of Realism
It’s no secret that Ninja Theory has been going to great lengths to ensure that Senua’s Saga: Hellblade II is as immersive and lifelike as possible. From facial animations to burning clothing for research, the team is committed to creating a realistic gaming experience.
Playing with Food in the Development Process
The latest update from Ninja Theory shows the team’s dedication to achieving the perfect look for the game’s environment. In a picture posted on Twitter, developers can be seen using flour, couscous, and polenta to create the imperfections found in Icelandic terrain. These kitchen items are carved with Icelandic symbols, and then it seems that the images are photographed or transferred into the game itself.
Grueling Training Regimen and Unreal Engine 5
In addition to using unconventional methods to make the game more realistic, Ninja Theory is also putting in the work in other areas. Actress Melina Juergens, who plays Senua, went through a grueling training regimen to create a more realistic portrayal of the character. The team is also using Unreal Engine 5 to give the game a highly advanced level of graphic detail.
No Release Date Yet
Although the game was first revealed in 2019 at the Game Awards, there is still no release date or even release window for Senua’s Saga: Hellblade II. Fans of the series will have to sit tight as Ninja Theory continues to push the limits of what is possible in a video game.
