Here's How Hellblade is Enhanced for Xbox One X

Hellblade stands to look a hell of a lot creepier on the Xbox One X.

Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice is coming to Xbox. Ninja Theory's eerie action game is currently a PlayStation 4 and PC exclusive, but that exclusivity comes to an end on April 11. What's more, the game will see significant enhancements on the Xbox One X.

Hellblade for the Xbox One X offers three performance modes. "Enhanced Visuals" adds yet-unspecified visual effects and enhancements. "High Framerate" runs the game at 60 FPS. High Resolution offers 4K visuals and dynamic scaling.

Hellblade with intense graphical details: Because you didn't poop your pants enough the first time around.

HDR is supported on Xbox One as well as Xbox One X. If you're having trouble working out the jargon behind enhanced game features, we have a guide explaining what the Xbox One X's enhancements actually mean.

Hellblade won praise last summer for tackling mental health issues while also helping Ninja Theory make a name for itself. Ultimately, the game sold a cool 500,000 copies, and will surely sell a few more on the Xbox.
