Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice patch 1.01 is now available

Did you have the time to shake yourself and come back to real life after the first Hellblade session? Do you think you’re able to join the society again? Your girlfriend/boyfriend is making holiday plans on a beach side? Well, start telling your friends, your family and your lovers that you’re sorry… Hellblade‘s first patch is out and it changes a lot in the game.

After learning that there was an extra scene before the last fight if you can find all the memory stone runes, I decided to give it another go. I have to see that end. And this patch will be another good reason for me to try it again. And have disturbing dreams…again…

As for the patch, along with fixing a couple of major game breaking bugs, the patch will implement many aesthetic and UI changes. And I want to congratulate Ninja Theory for their quick response. Especially after not being able to have it tested by gamers before the release date. Good job Ninja Theory, good job…

Here are the full notes:
