Rocktober is almost over but November will take it up to 11 with the release of the first Brütal Legend DLC pack, Tears of the Hextadon.
Tears of the Hextadon will feature two new multiplayer maps: The first, Circle of Tears, features a circular battlefield carved by "vile waters" that players must battle through in order to destroy their opponents, while the second, Death's Fjord, puts players on an icy mountain pass overlooking a dense pack of fans ready to be harvested - but only by those willing to break cover and expose themselves to their enemies to do it. The map pack also includes a new axe, the ominously named Blade of Ormagöden.
"I play Brütal Legend online every night," said Tim Schafer, the big cheese at 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."
I have no idea what a Hextadon is but it sounds f'n metal and that's what really matters. Tears of the Hextadon comes out on Xbox Live on November 3 for 400 Microsoft Points and then lands on the PlayStation Network on November 5, where it will be available as a free download until November 19, after which it will cost $4.99.
