Metal: Hellsinger

Metal: Hellsinger is a rowdy rhythm FPS featuring exclusive songs from the vocalists of iconic bands like Trivium and System of a Down. Here’s everything we know about the unique game so far, from how the gameplay works to the big-name artists attached.

Metal: Hellsinger is generating quite a buzz among fans of heavy music. Not just because the Doom-style levels are plucked straight out of a metalhead’s dreams, but also because some of the biggest stars from extreme metal are involved.

Many games have tried to incorporate more aggressive music in an interesting way, such as Rock Band or Brutal Legend. But exclusive tracks from Lamb of God and System of a Down stars gives David Goldfarb‘s game a special edge.

Here’s everything you need to know about Metal: Hellsinger, including gameplay details and the metal icons involved.

Metal: Hellsinger release date

Metal: Hellsinger is set to release on September 15, 2022, confirmed during a trailer on June 9.

However, if you want to face the music ahead of time, there is also a free demo available to download on the PlayStation Store, Xbox Store, and Steam.

Metal: Hellsinger platforms

The developers have confirmed that the game will be available on PC, as well as next-gen consoles PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S.

At the time of writing, there is no word on whether or not a Nintendo Switch version is in the works, but we wouldn’t be surprised to see it announced later down the line.

Metal: Hellsinger gameplay

In Metal: Hellsinger, the music is just as crucial as the guns.

Metal: Hellsinger combines the frantic, demon-slaying action of Doom Eternal and adds rhythm elements to create a unique FPS experience, where it’s as important to pay attention to the music that’s playing as it is to the battlefield.

Each new encounter will drop the needle on a metal banger that players will have to synch their attacks to. Keeping in time with the beat increases the amount of damage each shot does.

Your attacks also affect the intensity of the song that’s currently playing, throwing an extra splash of Guitar Hero into the mix.

Players will have access to the usual assortment of FPS weapons, including shotguns, dual pistols, and swords, to tear through eight different “Hells.”

Metal: Hellsinger artists

While the fast-paced action will be a massive draw, it’s the major artists attached to the project that has metalheads and gamers excited.

So far, nine vocalists from some of the most recognizable bands in heavy music have been confirmed as contributors. Each has recorded an exclusive track specifically for the game, and it’s an incredibly diverse lineup that spans plenty of facets of metal.
