Senua's Saga: Hellblade II PC Specs & Requirements

Senua's Saga: Hellblade II is an upcoming action-adventure game and is the sequel to Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice. It is scheduled to release for Windows and Xbox Series X/S on 21st May 2024.

Developed by Ninja Theory and published by Xbox Game Studios, the game sees Senua return in a “brutal journey of survival through the myth and torment of Viking Iceland. Intent on saving those who have fallen victim to the horrors of tyranny, Senua faces a battle of overcoming the darkness within and without.”

In the game, players will “sink deep into the next chapter of Senua’s story, a crafted experience told through cinematic immersion, beautifully realised visuals and encapsulating sound.”

As with any modern game release, knowing the system requirements necessary to run the game at optimal settings is vital for having an enjoyable gameplay experience. In this article, we’ll explore the PC specs required to run Senua's Saga: Hellblade II, as well as provide recommendations for those looking to upgrade their current setup. 

So, read on to discover what hardware you will need to immerse yourself in this dark world.

Senua’s Saga: Hellblade II Minimum Requirements

Currently, Ninja Theory hasn’t revealed the game’s minimum and recommended specifications. But, using games of a similar calibre alongside the previous title, we can put together some speculative estimations.

To get Senua's Saga: Hellblade II up and running at 1080p resolution, with most settings likely on low but hitting a decent 30 FPS, you most likely won’t need an overly powerful PC.

  • Processor: Intel Core i3-8100 or AMD Ryzen 3 1300X
  • Memory: 8GB RAM
  • Graphics: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1650 4GB or AMD Radeon RX 5500XT 4GB
  • Storage: 30GB+ available space

Here, we’ve used the minimum specs listed for Horizon Forbidden West which is another heavy-duty single-player title, as these specs are pretty typical of a lot of modern releases. Both the CPU and GPU options are showing their age now so most gaming PCs made within the last 5 years or so should be able to handle getting the game up and running.

Even though the game is relatively small in size compared to a lot of other modern titles, it’ll always benefit from being installed on a fast drive. With this in mind, consider upgrading your system with an SSD for faster load times, even if it's a smaller one.

If your PC just meets these specifications, however, you will need to be content with the lowest settings. You’ll only be able to play at around 1080p at 30 FPS with pretty much all the settings on low.

What PC do we recommend?

A PC that we'd recommend at this level would be the Ignition Intel Core i3 GTX 1650 Gaming PC.

It houses the suggested Nvidia RTX 1650 GPU but brings the CPU closer to the current generation with the Intel i3 12100. Both parts are great entry-level options and offer excellent value for money for those looking for a more budget system that will still allow for moderate gaming.

It also comes stocked with double the estimated minimum requirement for RAM at 16GB, plus a huge 1TB SSD to store the game on giving you more than enough space for a few others.

Senua’s Saga: Hellblade II Recommended Requirements

  • Processor: Core i7-12700 or Ryzen 7 7800X3D
  • Memory: 16 GB RAM
  • Graphics: GeForce RTX 2060 SUPER or Radeon RX 5700 XT or Arc A770
  • Storage: 30GB+ available space

Here, we decided to use the recommended specs listed for Cyberpunk 2077 as it is another game with a similar graphical output. Systems that fall within these recommended specifications will likely provide a solid Senua's Saga: Hellblade II gameplay experience at 1080p, increasing framerates and graphical settings closer to ‘high’.

These recommended specs aren’t too much of a jump from the minimum requirements either, with some of the suggested components being of a similar age. Although the upgrade in GPU does bring new features such as DLSS technology and the option for ray tracing via the Nvidia RTX graphics card.

However, they are a couple of generations old now and can be hard to get your hands on, so will likely not be the best option for value for money and you should instead look to newer parts.

What PC do we recommend?

A PC that we'd recommend at this level would be the Evolution Intel Core i5 RTX 4060 Gaming PC.

Similar to our PC suggestion for the minimum specs, this PC features some more recent parts, upgrading the CPU to an Intel Core i5 14400F and the GPU to an Nvidia RTX 4060. The combination of these newer parts means more future-proofing alongside a top-tier 1080p (and possibly even 1440p) experience.

Alongside no current official specs, Ninja Theory also hasn’t revealed whether or not the game will support either Nvidia DLSS or AMD FSR technology. However, as a lot of modern games are implementing it, whether upon launch or retroactively through a later update, it is likely that Senua's Saga: Hellblade II will too.

What do you need to play Senua’s Saga: Hellblade II at higher resolutions?

To enjoy a game like Senua's Saga: Hellblade II at 1440p and 4K, all while having graphical settings on high, these are the specs we think your system will need to hit at the very minimum.

  • CPU: AMD Ryzen 9 7900x or Intel i9 12900
  • GPU: AMD RX 6800 XT or Nvidia RTX 3080
  • Storage Space: 30GB+ available space
  • RAM: 16 GB

Like the other requirement lists, some of these components are also not of the most current generation. So, to hit these specs without spending money on out-of-date parts, consider a system like the Chilblast Evolution Intel Core i5 RTX 4070 Gaming PC.

This Chillblast PC features the Intel Core i5 14500 processor, which offers excellent gaming performance and multitasking capabilities. Paired with the Nvidia RTX 4070, you can expect smooth gameplay at 4K at high settings in most games.

Additionally, having 16GB of RAM and a powerful multitasking CPU, you should face no limits on running multiple applications whilst gaming. Plus, with full support for DLSS, it can drive up frame rates in supported games even more, and it even has some impressive ray-tracing support in compatible games

It even comes with a 1TB SSD which is ample room for your game library, plus a solid 16GB of high-speed memory.

Even through estimating what we think Senua's Saga: Hellblade II’s various system requirements will be, there will likely be options for all budgets. While meeting the minimum requirements will allow you to play the game smoothly, upgrading to a more powerful Chillblast PC will enhance your gaming experience, especially if you aim to play at higher resolutions and settings.
