Hellblade II is capped at 30fps on Xbox consoles

The upcoming launch of Senua's Saga: Hellblade II has all the fans of the first game in the series excited. Not only the game will allow players to delve into the story of Senua again, but now that she is at peace with her inner demons, the game opens up a new range of possibilities while maintaining the distinct atmosphere and approach to gameplay that made Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice a critically acclaimed title. The realistic representation of the scenario where the story is set alongside the extremely detailed characters contributes to delivering an immersive experience. Senua's Saga: Hellblade II will feature impressive graphics and it will squeeze out every drop of power from your graphics processor unit in order to deliver the best possible performance. However, the first reviews of the game ahead of its release have revealed that the game does not feature any graphics modes for you to choose from.

Limited performance

The first consequence of such a development choice is that you won't be able to adjust your graphics to get a better performance. Also, it's been reported by GamePro that Hellblade II is capped at 30fps on Xbox Series X/S consoles. This would be intended as Ninja Theory wants to deliver an experience with a very specific look. However, it will be possible to increase the fps of the game on PC. The studio has created a game that takes the Unreal 5 engine to the limit to support all the motion-capture animations and combat. The footage of Hellblade II shows so far does not indicate that the fps cap on Xbox is going to be any detrimental to the experience, and the possibility of playing a game with slightly better performance on a high-end PC is nothing new either.



Senua's Saga: Hellblade II will follow Senua as she travels to Iceland in the continuation of her quest for vengeance. The game features a new and more realistic combat system but the same deep narrative that made its predecessor a hit. As usual, our comparator will offer the cheapest Senua's Saga: Hellblade II game codes ahead of release.
