There are no plans to bring a 4K/60FPS upgrade on Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice with a PS5 update. Such optimization is available for the Xbox Series X/S.
Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice will not get 4K update on PS5
There is no doubt that Hellblade Senua’s Sacrifice is represented on the PS4, but this doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t hope for further support. This kind of criteria is especially true for the new-gen optimization of the title.
Even if the Xbox version of Hellblade Senua’s Sacrifice was made fit with an update for the Xbox Series X/S, such an optimization is not planned for the PS5. This can be found on the FAQ page of the game. “An update for the PC version of Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice is currently in development. There are no plans to bring this update to any other platform at this time,” reads the statement on the official website of Hellblade.
As for the new Xbox consoles, the title has three graphics modes after the update. This allows it to favor the frame rate, the resolution or the visual fidelity. On top of that, there are improved materials, particles, and LOD (Level of Detail).
“We’ve also included the feature most requested by our community: chapter select! Now you can replay your favourite moments from Senua’s journey to Helheim, and make sure you track down every last lorestone,” says Ninja Theory.
When the game was launched in 2017, it was optimized for the PS4 Pro so that resolutions of 1080p and 1440p can be chosen. With a separate option, 60 FPS can also be activated.
There is no big surprise that Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice is not getting a PS5 optimization. In mid-2018 Microsoft announced that Ninja Theory had been taken over by the Redmond company and made it clear several times that the Xbox Game Pass should be strengthened with the new studios.
