Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice is an indie title from Ninja Theory that caught our attention the moment it was announced thanks to its gorgeous visuals and its bizarre theme. The game is powered by Unreal Engine 4 and even though it’s not as advanced as Gears of War 4, it’s easily one of the best UE4-powered games to date.
For this PC Performance Analysis, we used an Intel i7 4930K (overclocked at 4.2Ghz) with 8GB RAM, AMD’s Radeon RX580, NVIDIA’s GTX980Ti and GTX690, Windows 10 64-bit and the latest version of the GeForce and Catalyst drivers. NVIDIA has not included any SLI profile for this title, meaning that the GTX690 behaved similarly to a GTX680.
Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice comes with a few graphics settings to tweak. PC gamers can adjust the quality of foliage, postprocessing, shadows, textures, distance and effects. It’s also worth pointing out that we were unable to run the game in 4K on our1080p monitor (both DSR and custom resolutions did not work, and even setting our resolution to 4K did not make the trick).
