Oslo, Norway – September 15, 2022 – Metal: Hellsinger, the heavy metal rhythm FPS from publisher Funcom and developer The Outsiders and winner of Gamescom’s Most Wanted PC Game and Best Action Game awards, is out now on PC, PlayStation 5, and Xbox X|S. Experience innovative musical reactivity and rhythm gameplay to explosive vocal performances by iconic metal artists! Warm up your neck muscles and headbang to today’s Launch Trailer.
The Red Judge, ruler of the Hells, has stolen the Unknown’s voice, but she won’t take it lying down. Slay to the rhythm of metal and vengeance on an infernal journey through the eight Hells, with characters voiced by award-winning actors Troy Baker and Jennifer Hale.
Metal: Hellsinger answers the question: What if you could play a metal album? The thunderous OST is composed by musician duo Two Feathers and performed by a legendary lineup including Serj Tankian (System of a Down), Matt Heafy (Trivium), Alissa White-Gluz (Arch Enemy), Randy Blythe (Lamb of God), Mikael Stanne (Dark Tranquility), Dennis Lyxzén (Refused and INVSN), James Dorton (Black Crown Initiate), Tatiana Shmayluk (Jinjer), and Björn Strid (Soilwork).
Time your shots, dashes, finishers and more to the beat to increase your damage and raise your fury multiplier. As the fury racks up, the music becomes more intense, layer by layer. When it peaks, the vocals roar in for the full metal experience.
In addition to today’s launch, Funcom is excited to announce their collaboration with DRKN to offer Hells-approved clothing with exclusive Metal: Hellsinger art.
Dave Goldfarb, Creative Director at The Outsiders, says, “It’s been a long road (3 years!) to get to this fateful day, but we are finally here! We are so excited to share Metal: Hellsinger with you all and hope you enjoy this pure metal rhythm shooter and the Unknown’s epic journey through the Eight Hells. Remember: headbanging is not required, but we highly recommend it. Thank you and good hunting in the Hells! 🤘”
Since June over one million Hellsingers have downloaded the free demo and expressed their passion online as they've honed their scores in the first level. The Metal: Hellsinger Gamescom live concert filled an entire hall to its 3500-person capacity, with hundreds of thousands more joining online.
Now it’s time for the world to dive into the full experience; blast through a full campaign; top the leaderboards in the Torment challenge mode; use an arsenal of varied weapons to demolish demons to intense rhythms; and groove to the full original soundtrack.
Today, on PC, PlayStation 5, and Xbox X|S, the Hells will learn to fear the beat.
