Electronic Arts have just let us know that the first downloadable content is out next week for Brütal Legend. Tears of the Hextadon will be available on Xbox LIVE on November 3 for 400 MS Points and on PlayStation Network on November 5, where the two-map pack will be downloadable for free until November 19, then costing £3.99 after November 19.
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.
“I play Brütal Legend online every night,” said Tim Schafer, President of Double Fine Productions. “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!”
