The Lorestones are the collectibles in Hellblade Senua’s Sacrifice. They represent Senua’s friend, Druth, and his teachings of the Northmen for her journey.
There are a total of 44 of them in the game that you need to interact with to unlock the “Stories From the North” trophy. Collecting all 44 in a single playthrough also unlocks the secret ending at the end of the game.
There’s a circle around each one and this shows progress. Each area/level is separated by a circle so it somewhat helps with tracking them.
All of the Lorestones are missable. If you miss any and advanced too far, there’s no way to get back and you’ll need to start a new game. Almost all the areas have a certain number of Lorestones – which you can jump to below:
1 – This Lorestone can be found at the very start of the game, as soon as you disembark from the boat.
2 – This Lorestone can be found as you leave the shore under the bridge and start climbing the rocks, located at the base of a small waterfall.
3 – You can find this Lorestone at the top of the cliffs above the shore, after passing through the Rune Door, and crossing the narrow beam over the cliff.
