For the launch of Senua’s Saga: Hellblade II, Xbox and Ninja Theory have teamed up with Icelandic jeweler Aurum on a limited-edition jewelry collection that is rooted in both the world of the game and its real-life inspiration in Iceland.  The sequel to 2017’s acclaimed Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice, Senua’s Saga: Hellblade II follows the warrior Senua as she journeys to 10th Century Iceland and battles through myth and torment in a brutal saga of survival. Drawing upon the same raw and majestic landscapes, Aurum is Iceland’s leading jewelry brand and the perfect partner to create a necklace and headpiece that reflect Senua’s world by blending intensity, beauty, and femininity.

The Aurum collaboration features a made-to-measure headpiece for Melina Juergens, the BAFTA-winning performer who plays Senua in both Hellblade games. Developed in collaboration between Aurum head designer Guðbjörg Kristín Ingvarsdótir and Ninja Theory’s Character Art Director Dan Crossland, the custom headpiece is inspired by the one Senua wears in-game. The piece is made from hammered oxidized silver, assembled through layers of Sea Eagle wings, in reference the mythological Norse guardian spirits; who warriors of the time believed a symbol of protection.

In addition to the headpiece, Aurum created handcrafted bronze necklaces that combine authentic Icelandic inspiration with the dark fantasy influences of Hellblade. Fans can enter to win these necklaces through a global sweepstakes hosted by Xbox on X (formerly Twitter). For more information and to enter, please visit the post.

In the true spirit of honoring the Icelandic environment, the Aurum pieces will be housed in their signature sustainable packaging, which is modelled on an actual Icelandic pebble from Djúpalónssandur beach in the Snæfellsnes peninsula. The paper box is made from mulberry tree fibers, which are collected from the leaves without cutting down a single tree. Aurum always sources only recycled and re-refined precious metals and only buys certified and conflict-free precious stones and diamonds.

Senua’s Saga: Hellblade II will be released on May 21, 2024, for Xbox Series X|S, PC, and Steam, and will be available to play on day one on Xbox Game Pass.
