As the graphics and animations in video games have improved over the years, the developers have been launching the games with a dedicated photo mode for players to capture their favorite moments and environments. These modes ship with better camera controls, more visual effects, and much more.


The developer announced on May 1 that it will share tidbits from Hellblade 2 every single day until the launch. It has now shared a deep dive video about the Hellblade 2 photo mode, and it looks very impressive and is filled with several features that every virtual photographer will appreciate.

The clip shared shows different options and tools that players would be able to use in the game. These include the standard camera placement and filter options, as well as other ridiculously amazing titles such as the ability to manipulate characters, add effects, and several other things.


The photo mode also has lens settings for character position, tilt, field of view, and depth of field. There are also options for color temperature and tint. Players can also create several light sources and also change the settings for hue, brightness, range, illumination style, and more, basically adding custom lighting as they please.

Players Can Even Tweak The Character in Photo Mode

Players can also use adjustable light bulbs, moving them around and attaching them to the camera or any part of the level that will allow them to illuminate any part of the picture. While these features in photo mode are some of the best yet seen in games, there is also the “Character” tab that has many more features for players.

The options in the character tab include the ability to change characters, rotate them, move them up and down, north/south, and east/west—basically everything one would be able to do in photo editing software. These are some of the best features that have ever been in photo mode.


Players are excited to see these features and have appreciated the detailing and other features that are in the photo mode. The lighting is what has impressed the community the most. Many also said that they would be filling their console memory with pictures, and some are just sad that they do not have an Xbox console.
