    Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice has a total of 44 collectibles known as lorestones, scattered throughout the 11 chapters of the game.

    The game does NOT have chapter select, or any mode to mop up collectibles. However, progress does carry between playthroughs, so you can grab what you missed on a second playthrough if necessary. This is the only missable achievement in the game, and everything else will be rewarded through natural progression. Your progress can be seen on the outside ring of each stone. Most of the lorestones are easily found, but chapter by chapter timelinks are available below:

    Chapter 1 - 0:34
    Chapter 2 - 2:16
    Chapter 3 - 6:30
    Chapter 4 - 8:31
    Chapter 5 - 10:15
    Chapter 6 - 13:35
    Chapter 7 - 17:00
    Chapter 8 - 21:31
    Chapter 9 - 23:37
    Chapter 10 - 23:42
    Chapter 11 - 27:11

    NOTE: Lorestones are only saved at checkpoints. If you die, you may need to pick up certain lorestones again!

    NOTE 2: The game has been updated so that lorestones are unlocked in order, and the symbols are not necessarily tied to the locations. This means that certain lorestones have multiple possible symbols on them based on what you've collected before them. If you miss one in a chapter, try to grab all lorestones for that chapter just in case.

    YaIrishMick96I somehow missed one along the way, I think I died and it deleted the fact that I had collected it. Ugh. If I start a new playthrough do I just need to rush to the point of that collectable to get this since they carry over playthroughs?

    All the lorestone locations.

    This is the only achievement that is not story related.

    It is a missable achievement. Game does save the lorestones through multiple playthroughs so you will just need to get the ones you missed when playing through again.

    IMPORTANT: Something to be mindful about is when exiting the game the last lorestone you got might not have saved so always go back to the last lorestone you got to make sure it saved.

    Enjoy! This is a wonderfully unique game that will take you through the depths of madness. Safe to say it's not a game for everyone.

    I prefer text walkthroughs, and some of the puzzles were annoying me. I don't usually like doing this, but until TA posts a proper walkthrough, this is what I found helpful. It gives step-by-step through the whole game, and puts the lorestones in the order as the fit in the playthrough.

    erod550This is the best guide. I started out using the gamepressure guide and ended up getting a bit lost in the Valravyn area and missed a couple lorestones. Switched to the IGN guide from there and found them all and found the ones I missed easily at the start of a second playthrough.

    Just adding one element on top of the 2 (great) previous guide : in a level, the sign you see on each stone (location) is not static. Inside a level, each time you find a new Lorestone, it triggers the next sign in your ring, and you can hear the next chapter of the little stories.
    If you find Lorestones in a different order from the video, you will still see the Ring be filled in the "right" order, one after the other.
    So, if you miss 1 Lorestone, you can't use the sign visible in the video to exactly get the one you miss (don't search for the "S" or the "P" precisely). You will always miss the last ones in the ring, and it could be any place within a level, including some early location. Use the video and Try to remember the location that rings a bell vs new one.
