will deteriorate. Replacing blades is an important tactic to weakening and slaying the Titans and should
be executed quickly to guarantee that effective damage is dealt.
Titans can be weakened by attacking their limbs.
As players use the Omni-Directional Mobility Gear to latch onto Titans, they are able to aim at which limb they wish to attack.
For the killing blow, players will want to aim for the nape of the Titans neck—their critical weak spot—to ensure
As players fight the Titans they will not be alone. Up to four non-playable characters can be recruited

Cambridge, UK – May 10th 2016 - Ninja Theory Ltd, the UK-based
videogame developer has today released their first VR scene to the public in order to demonstrate the potential of Virtual

Sacrifice, was performed by an actress live on stage and rendered in the game world in real-time. The studio have today released the same scene in VR.
tested the scene in VR and found that people reacted very strongly to seeing someone they perceive as human”, said Tameem
Antoniades, Chief Creative Ninja at Ninja Theory, “Our belief is that real-time virtual human technology will profoundly
shape future VR experiences for games, movies and beyond.”
Wil Driver, CTO at Ninja Theory added, “In
VR, you expect characters to acknowledge your presence in meaningful and natural ways and respond to your actions. In
the real-time version of the scene, Senua tracks and follows your eyes procedurally while still playing a captured performance.
In future, we believe a mix of live performance capture, procedural animation systems and AI will profoundly change the way
we both create and enjoy VR experiences.”
Ninja Theory plan to continue their work with Virtual Human Technology
in partnership with Cubic Motion and 3Lateral to explore the possibilities that real-time performance capture and virtual
human interaction will bring to VR experiences.
