DMC developer Ninja Theory revealed its new independently-published game, Hellblade, at Sony's Gamescom 2014 press conference today.
The trailer below shows off a character from the game and presumably the graphical quality level and art style it will be going for. However, Ninja Theory's Twitter account provides even more details.
We will make a game that feels and looks AAA, but will be smaller, lower priced and delivered independently.— NinjaTheory (@NinjaTheory) August 12, 2014
According to the Twitter account, Hellblade "feels and looks AAA, but will be smaller, lower priced and delivered independently." Ninja Theory says it is continuing to work on games with publishers but wanted to try something new with this project. The developer has previously worked on projects such as DMC with Capcom, Enslaved with Namco Bandai and Heavenly Sword with Sony.
Later in the press conference, Sony confirmed that Hellblade is not exclusive to the PlayStation 4 but will appear first on that platform.
