Hellblade Senua’s Sacrifice released recently and it has gathered quite the attention from players and critics alike for being a rather impressive game. IGN gave it a 9/10 and said that it is a wonderful experience. The game has several lorestones scattered throughout the story that must be collected for certain story elements to unfold (or for simply unlocking a trophy). This guide will tell you exactly where and when to find all of the lorestones in the game:
Hellblade Lorestone Locations
Hellblade Lorestone #1
At the very start of the game, to the right, as players get out of the boat.
Hellblade Lorestone #2
At the coast, after walking under the bridge and before going upstairs.
Hellblade Lorestone #3
After the first puzzle door, players need to balance themselves and walk over a wooden beam to the other side where the Lorestone is located.
Hellblade Lorestone #4
After the first enemy encounter, this Lorestone can be found at the gate.
Hellblade Lorestone #5
After opening the gate and taking the left path to Illusion Trial, Lorestone can be located up the hill and to the right side of ruins.
Hellblade Lorestone #6
Players will come up on an area with a big locked gate while an illusion gate on the left will take them to a new path. Players need to continue walking this path until they reach another illusion gate in front of castle ruins.
Stepping through the gate will remove the castle wall so players can get inside it and open up the two locked doors in the castle. Having done that, back track to the illusion gate they used and step through it to repair the castle.
This will close up the wall but players can enter through the doors they just opened up. Once in the castle again, players need to go upstairs, walk over a wooden beam and reach the Lorestone location.
Hellblade Lorestone #7
After the second enemy encounter, the Lorestone will be right in front of the players.
Hellblade Lorestone #8
Far right corner of the area after picking the previous Lorestone.
Hellblade Lorestone #9
After scanning the big red mark on the gate, players need to turn around and use the illusion gate to repair a bridge. They should step in through the illusion gate in the middle to reach a drawbridge they can interact with.
Once the bridge is down and players walk over it, they can step through another illusion gate to remove the castle walls, step into the castle and make their way to a cave with the Lorestone inside it.
Once players defeat the Valravn boss, they need to backtrack to the beginning area and this time step through the yellow gate on the right to start the Fire trial.
Hellblade Lorestone #10
After stepping through the yellow gate, swim across the water and the Lorestone will be in a cave.
Hellblade Lorestone #11
After the second fight of the trial and escaping the burning area, look at the bridge with the burning pyre, turn left and walk down the path to find the Lorestone after the second left turn.
Hellblade Lorestone #12
After picking the previous Lorestone, pass under the bridge and the Lorestone will be at the back of the burned down forest.
Hellblade Lorestone #13
After escaping the second burning area, players will come up on two houses. The Lorestone is inside the destroyed house on the right side.
Hellblade Lorestone #14
Going past these two houses and through the fire again, players will come up on two more houses. The Lorestone will be behind the second house and players will need to pass through an open door in the back of the house to reach it. Players will also be able to pick up 3 symbols here for one of the puzzle doors so that’s a good marker.
Hellblade Lorestone #15
After the fight inside the Fortress and before the 3-symbol puzzle door, players need to turn right and they will come up on the Lorestone. As it is right in the path of the main story progress, this Lorestone is impossible to miss.
Hellblade Lorestone #16
After collecting the third symbol for the puzzle door, climb down the ladder on the upper floor which takes players to an unlockable door. The Lorestone will be next to it.
Hellblade Lorestone #17

Hellblade Lorestone #24
Inside the maze, turn left another left and then left again. Players will come up on the corridor with Lorestone in it.
Hellblade Lorestone #25
Inside the maze, turn left then right and then left again to reach a corridor with holes in the roof.
Hellblade Lorestone #26

Hellblade Lorestone #38
After the 3-symbol door, players will come up on another sealed 1-symbol door which leads them through a waterfall that extinguishes their torch. Once players light up the torch again, they need to walk over a wooden beam and go right to see the Lorestone next to some crucified corpses.
Hellblade Lorestone #39
