When Brutal Legend was released only a few weeks ago, thousands of fans were excited to play the unique heavy metal based comical hack-and-slasher. The demo which was released on the PSN only a week prior gave the game a lot of deserved attention, and so far sales have been great for Double Fine Productions. Although the game was relatively short, new DLC has been announced which should help give the game some needed re-playability.
Double Fine Productions have officially announced DLC for Brutal Legend titled “Tears of the Hextadon”, which consists of 2 maps for the multiplayer stage battles. The maps included are called Circle of Tears and Death’s Fjord. The first is based in a circular battlefield entrenched in water, and the latter is based in a mountain pass. As an added bonus, those who purchase the DLC will also receive a free ingame axe called the Blade of Ormagöden.
To top that all off, those who own the PlayStation 3 version of Brutal Legend will have access to download the DLC for free during the first 2-weeks of release. The DLC will become available via PSN on November 5th, and will remain free until November 19th.
“I play Brütal Legend online every night and I need more maps! Circle of Tears is named after the crying of my vanquished foes on the battlefield, and Death’s Fjord is obviously a tribute to my Nordic ancestors, and their love of fan geysers and… Well, actually I just thought the name was cool. See you online!”
– Tim Schafer, President of Double Fine Productions
