How To Unlock The Extended Ending

There is an extra ending scene in Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice that will only appear if you’ve earned 100% completion — you must collect all 44 lorestones before the final battle.

There are 11 sequences in Hellblade, and you’ll be able to track your lorestone progress as you complete the game using the lorestones themselves. When approaching a lorestone, you’ll see a circle of red runes — each set of runes is separated by a dot. The dot represents the chapter divisions. Collecting a lorestone turns the runes from red to white. When a section (between dots) features all white runes and no red runes, then you’ll know you’ve found all the runes in a sequence.
