Electronic Arts e Double Fine Productions hanno reso noto l'arrivo del primo DLC dedicato a Brutal Legend.

A partire dal prossimo 3 Novembre sarà possibile scaricare il contenuto aggiuntivo intitolato Tears of the Hextadon, contenente due nuove mappe per il multiplayer: Circle of Tears e Death's Fjord.

Il costo è di 400 Microsoft Points per la versione Xbox 360, mentre per l'edizione PlayStation 3 il DLC sarà gratuito fino al 19 Novembre: dopo tale data il prezzo sarà di 3,99 euro.

Il comunicato stampa integrale è disponibile subito dopo il break.

Guildford, UK – October 27, 2009 – Electronic Arts Inc. (NASDAQ:ERTS) and Double Fine Productions Inc. will turn up the volume come November when the first downloadable content is released for the heavy metal, third person action game, 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. “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. See you online!”

Brütal Legend has received acclaim by critics worldwide, with PLAY Magazine scoring Brütal Legend a perfect 10 out of 10, calling it the, “greatest video game ever created”. IGN also praised Brütal Legend, giving it 9 out of 10 and awarding it Editor’s Choice, calling it, “one of the best games all year Brütal Legend is available for RRP £49.99 on the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system and PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system. Brütal Legend is rated 18+ by PEGI.
