The Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice Accolades Trailer Takes A Different Approach

United Kingdom games developer Ninja Theory is giving all money made from Hellblade sales today to mental health charity Rethink.

Today being World Mental Health Day, all proceeds from Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice will go to charity.

In an effort to continue raising awareness around the issue, each and every sale of Hellblade will be donated to Rethink Mental Illness.

While the representation of mental illness is many video games is relegated to "psycho" villains and other harmful tropes, Hellblade takes a fearless look at what it's like to live with psychosis through the eyes of its protagonist Senua.

Some of the themes dealt with in Hellblade include psychosis, and mental health is explored through voices in Senua's head, as well as a bending of reality, something that the player experiences alongside Senua.

To celebrate, Ninja Theory have put together an accolades trailer, but instead of the customary smattering of review quotes, they've gone for a different approach: all the quotes featured in the trailer are from fans. Furthermore, the images in the trailer are all composed of screenshots taken by the game's player community, thanks to the game's Photo Mode. "At its heart, when you strip everything away, Hellblade is a frank and unrelenting warning about helping others, to not let them drift further and further towards darkness".

In Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice, people follow a Celtic warrior named Senua.

A new trailer for the game also highlights how their work has touched so many of its players, with testimonies of personal struggles and feelings the action fighter brought up in fans.
