PC Gamer has just revealed that Hellblade, Ninja Theory’s console exclusive, Hellblade, is not only coming to just the PS4, but the PC as well. An Xbox One version of the game has yet to be announced as Sony presumably has a console exclusivity deal lined up for the game for the time being.
Here’s the reasoning behind the PC release, according to Ninja Theory.
“We’re looking at everything we do on this project and figuring out better ways of doing things compared to how the traditional AAA console model works. And consoles are following suit with PC, but I think they’re years behind what things like Steam are doing. If we want to do an open beta right now, it’s a little bit trickier to do that than on PC. Playtesting is a huge thing for us. Usability testing, getting people hands-on to try things out, get feedback, then roll that back in and improve the game… it’s always been essential for us to do that. Not every publisher has let us, because of the secrecy that goes into consoles and publisher-based businesses. As an independent we have the freedom to do that.”
PC Gamer will have a whole bunch more to share regarding Hellblade in their latest subscriber issue of their magazine. Be sure to check it out if you’re wanting to learn more.
