Ninja Theory is preparing for the launch of Senua's Saga: Hellblade II, the sequel to the critically acclaimed Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice.

One of the best-looking games of 2024 is about to be released, and the developers behind the title have now released what you will need to run the game on PC. Ninja Theory has taken to its official X account to share an image showing what PC gamers will need to boot up Hellblade II, and the requirements to even hit recommended are quite hefty.

This isn't really that surprising, considering how graphically intense the Hellblade 2 is. Taking one look at the above trailer, you can quickly realize Hellblade 2 is much more graphically intense than Hellblade 1, with Ninja Theory pioneering aspects such as motion capture, facial rendering, and cinematic storytelling. The minimum requirements on PC to hit 1080p on Low are an Intel i5-8400 or an AMD Ryzen 5 2600, a GTX 1070, an AMD RX 5700, or an Intel Arc A580.

The demand for more powerful components really starts to take effect at 1440p and 4K, which will require Intel i7-10700k / AMD Ryzen 5 5600x CPU, NVIDIA RTX 3080/ AMD RX 6800 XT / Intel ARC A770 GPU and for 4K an Intel i5 - 12600K / AMD Ryzen 7 5700X CPU, NVIDIA RTX 4080 / AMD RX 7900 XTX GPU. Notably, Hellblade 2 will take advantage of AI upscaling technologies such as NVIDIA DLSS 3, AMD FSR 3, and Intel XeSS 1.3.

Interestingly, Ninja Theory has placed the Intel ARC A770 GPU next to the RTX 3080 and RX 6800 XT. This appears to be an error of some kind due to Intel's GPU being far less powerful than the RTX 3080 and RX 6800 XT, as its performance is much closer to a RTX 3060Ti. However, this is just my personal speculation, and not based on any metrics.

Senua's Saga: Hellblade II will release on Xbox Series X|S and PC on May 21. It will also be coming to Game Pass on day one.
