It's been rumoured and teased for a while, but now we have confirmation: new downloadable content for Brütal Legend is coming, and it's coming November 3rd to both Xbox Live and PSN. Xbox Live owners seem to be getting slightly screwed however, as it will cost 400 MS points, whereas on PSN it'll be free until November 19th, when it becomes £3.99.
The Brütal Legend Tears of the Hextadon map pack expands the Brütal Legend Stage Battle multiplayer experience with two new multiplayer maps. In the first map, Circle of Tears, vile waters have carved a rough-hewn circular battlefield into a forsaken land that players must circumvent to destroy their opponent. In the second map, Death's Fjord, players find themselves on an icy mountain pass with a dense cluster of fans that lie below, waiting to be harvested by those brave enough to capture them without cover from enemy attack. All players who download the new map pack will receive a free axe, the Blade of Ormagöden.Anyone got any good Heavy Metal-based puns on 'November'?
“I play Brütal Legend online every night,” said Tim Schafer, President of Double Fine Productions. “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!
