Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice PC Update Adds Ray Tracing Reflections/Shadows, DLSS

Earlier this summer, Ninja Theory’s Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice got a nice visual boost on Xbox Series X/S with updates that added ray tracing, a new visual mode, and more. Well, now the PC is having fun with its own enhancement that includes everything in the Xbox Series X update (new materials, particles and raytraced reflections) as well as some exclusive features including raytraced shadows and support for NVIDIA’s Deep Learning Super Sampling and AMD FidelityFX Super Resolution.

Ninja Theory has released a new update for Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice that includes many of the improvements that the Xbox Series X/S optimized version received, along with some additional PC-exclusive changes. The new changes include new accessibility options and graphical improvements. The update is available now and is free for those who already own the game or will purchase it in the future.

One of the most important changes in this new version of Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice is the support for ray tracing, which allows for more realistic reflections and shadows. In addition, the studio has taken the opportunity to update material textures, particles, and LOD (Level of Detail), so even players without graphics cards that support ray tracing will notice graphical improvements in the title.

Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice also receives support for Nvidia DLSS and AMD FidelityFX Super Resolution. This allows for higher FPS while maintaining the same graphics quality. This update also includes a new accessibility tab that will be available on both PC and Xbox. Players will be able to customize the color, size, and background of subtitles, play with a mono sound profile, and use different colorblindness profiles.

If you haven’t already, this is a great opportunity to play Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice. The game is available on Steam, through Xbox Game Pass, and on the Humble Store. Ninja Theory is also developing the sequel.
