Heavenly Sword and Enslaved: Odyssey to the West developers Ninja Theory, are collaborating with award-winning facial animation firm Cubic Motion and animators 3lateral. The teams are working together to bring Hellblade‘s main character to life (and presumably some more of the characters/enemies we’ll see in the game) Cubic Motion will be providing the game’s facial animation using its stereo head-mounted capture cameras and Qommotion tracking technology, according to a post on the Cubic Motion website.
Ninja Theory have also revealed more details about the plot of Hellblade. They are attempting to explore the theme of mental illness through the main character ‘Senoa.’ The team have even been working with psychologists and neuroscientists, as well as patient groups to make sure they can explore this topic to the best of their ability. Even more details can be found in this interview with chief designer Tameem Antoniades.
