Watch 'Senua's Saga: Hellblade II' running on the new Xbox Series X

Senua is back.

Microsoft revealed its next-generation console, the Xbox Series X, in a surprise announcement at The Game Awards -- and no debut would be complete without a fancy, detailed, in-engine demo. To that end, players got another world premiere in the form of Senua's Saga: Hellblade II from Ninja Theory.

Senua's Saga is the sequel to 2017's Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice, a powerful game about demonic energy, love and the power of the human mind, set in a dark fantasy world. Judging by the debut trailer, Senua's Saga will be no different. Ninja Theory is the studio behind both games, though things are a little different this time around. Microsoft purchased Ninja Theory in June 2018, amid a raft of other acquisitions for Xbox Game Studios.
