Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice: PC Performance Benchmarks for Graphics Cards and Processors

BASIC INFORMATION ON THE GAME

HellbladeGame Win64 Shipping 2017 08 08 11 19 49 701

Developer : Ninja Theory
Publisher : Ninja Theory
Release Dates : August 8, 2017
Genres : Action / 3D / 3rd Person

Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice is a project from the English studio Ninja Theory, which is an action-adventure game inspired by Norse and Celtic mythology. The main character - named Senua, goes on a dangerous journey to Hell. Balancing on the verge between hallucination and reality, the girl will have to overcome not only her fears, but also hellish creatures.

In order to accurately convey the mental state of the heroine, the creators consulted with Paul Fletcher, a professor of neuroscience at the University of Cambridge. In the game you have to solve completely different puzzles than you might be used to in other similar projects. Hellblade features a dynamic and engaging combat system powered by motion capture technology. However, the main driving force behind the gameplay is the storyline.

THE GRAFICAL PART

In this subsection of our review, the main graphical aspects of this game are revealed. Particular attention is paid to the version of the graphics engine used, the version of the API used, graphics settings and the quality of the development of the main visual aspects. 

SUPPORTED OC AND GRAPHICS API

Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice is only supported on Windows 7/8/10. Other operating systems are currently not supported by developers and are unlikely to receive support. 

st 

DirectX 11 became the priority and main graphics API for Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice 

GAME ENGINE

Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice is based on the Unreal Engine 4, developed and maintained by Epic Games. 

unreal engine 4

Thanks to his work, each playthrough of the game is unique and inimitable, which increases the replayability of the game. The first game created on the engine - Unreal - appeared in 1998. Since then, various versions of this game engine have been used in over a hundred games, including Deus Ex, Dishonored, Lineage II, Thief: Deadly Shadows, Postal 2, the Brothers in Arms series, Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell, Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six, as well as in the well-known game series Unreal and Unreal Tournament from Epic Games themselves. Being adapted primarily for first-person shooters, the engine was also used to create games of other genres.   

Written in the high-level C++ language, Unreal Engine 4 allows you to create games for most operating systems and platforms: Microsoft Windows, Linux, Mac OS and Mac OS X, Xbox, Xbox 360, PlayStation 2, PlayStation Portable, PlayStation 3, Wii, Dreamcast and Nintendo GameCube. In December, Mark Rein demonstrated Unreal Engine 3 on the iPod Touch and iPhone 3GS. In March 2010, the engine was demonstrated on the Palm Pre communicator based on the webOS mobile platform.

To simplify porting, the engine uses a modular system of dependent components: supports various rendering systems (Direct3D, OpenGL, Pixomatic; previously supported Glide API, S3 Metal, PowerVR SGL), sound playback (EAX, OpenAL, DirectSound3D; previously supported A3D), voice playback tools text, speech recognition (only for Xbox360, PlayStation 3, Nintendo Wii and Microsoft Windows, also planned for Linux and Mac), modules for networking and support for various input devices. 

HellbladeGame Win64 Shipping 2017 08 08 11 04 25 053 

For online play, Windows Live, Xbox Live, and GameSpy technologies are supported, including up to 64 players (clients) at the same time. Despite the fact that the development tools do not officially include support for a large number of clients on a single server, the engine has been used to create MMORPG games. One of the most famous representatives of the genre, Lineage II, uses the Unreal Engine.

ADVANCED GAME SETTINGS

Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice has a very wide range of graphics settings. You can also change the settings for five main sub-items - low medium and high and very high.

Below we have provided screenshots of the game at various graphics settings, where our readers can see the difference between the minimum and maximum graphics quality settings. 

DIFFERENT QUALITY MODES


The difference between the graphics settings is visible to the naked eye, mainly in the change in the detail of objects and vegetation.

GENERAL VISUAL DESIGN AND GAME PHYSICS

Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice looks gorgeous, of course, mainly due to the development and motion capture of the main character, which allows the game to be perceived very realistically. The environment is also not bad, which emphasizes how the developers responsibly approached their creation. In fact, this is the most beautiful game on  Unreal Engine 4.

All video cards were tested at the maximum graphics quality by the Action! program. The purpose of the test is to determine how video cards from different manufacturers behave under the same conditions. Below is a video of the test segment :

 Our video cards were tested at resolutions of 1920x1080, 2560x1600 and 3840x2160 at maximum graphics quality settings. SLI and AMD CrossFireX are currently not supported by the game.

GPU TEST

In the test of video cards, the default resolution is 1920x1080, other resolutions are added and removed manually. You can also remove and add any positions of video cards. You can also choose any of our test processors from the list in the drop-down menu, comparing its performance with the given video card tests (by default, the most productive solution is selected).
