Publisher Funcom released an announcement trailer for developer “The Outsiders”‘s upcoming FPS Rythm-Action game Metal: Hellsinger. If you’re someone who enjoyed either Doom, or Crypt of the NecroDancer, you’d want to keep this on your wishlist for now.
Have a gander at it –
Looks like visceral and rhythmic fun doesn’t it? What’s more, it features some talented voice actors like Troy Baker and developers who’ve worked on some major projects like Battlefield and Payday. The soundtrack also features notable metal artists from bands like Trivium, Arch Enemy and more.
Here’s a full description of the game-
Strike terror into the hearts of demons and devils as you fight your way through eight Hells. Metal: Hellsinger is a rhythm FPS, brimming with diabolical enemies, powerful weapons, and metal music. Set out on an infernal journey in order to achieve the purest of goals: Vengeance.
Part human, part demon, and obsessed with vengeance. Become The Unknown, and fight through the fiercest domains of Hell. Destroy the demon hordes and their leaders to set yourself up for an epic showdown with The Red Judge herself. Every legend has a song. And yours is one of metal, vengeance, and destruction.
SLAY THE BEAST
Metal: Hellsinger is a rhythm FPS, where your ability to shoot on the beat will enhance your gameplay experience. The more in sync you are with the rhythm, the more intense the music will become and the more destruction you will cause.
Defeat the demon hordes with a skull-clad blade or a wide range of murderous guns. Each weapon has its own ultimate ability, such as Murder of Crows or The Big Goodbye.
EPIC STORY AND CHALLENGE MODE
Play through an epic storyline, narrated by award-winning actor Troy Baker. Then conquer the leaderboards or challenge your friends to beat your score in Challenge Mode.
FIGHT THROUGH FIRE, ICE, METAL AND MADNESS
Although commonly known as Hell, The Infernal Planes is in reality a union of a thousand Hells, all of which are terrifying and diabolical in their own way. In order to dethrone The Red Judge, you must fight your way through the fiercest corners, from the icy world of Voke to the maddening world of Stygia.
