'Metal: Hellsinger' Is Going to Rock Gamescom With Live Metal Concert - Trailer

by Rainier on Aug. 4, 2022 @ 6:00 a.m. PDT

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.

Strike terror into the hearts of demons and devils as you fight your way through eight Hells.

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.

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.

Metal: Hellsinger will take to the stage at Gamescom on 25 August, in the largest live concert ever seen at the event.

Several of the game’s celebrated vocalists will perform their songs from the game, which are written by Swedish composer duo, Two Feathers.

This epic joining of music and game starts at 7 p.m. CEST and will be streamed live for all to watch.

Feast your eyes and ears on the trailer for this unique event now.

After shooting past one million demo downloads and a rapid climb up the Steam wishlist, Funcom and The Outsiders turn it up to 11 by gathering an astounding number of the game’s metal icons to perform, including Matt Heavy (Trivium), Alissa White-Glüz (Arch Enemy), Mikael Stanne (Dark Tranquillity), Dennis Lyxzén (Refused/INVSN), and James Dorton (Black Crown Initiate).

The massive event is free and open to thousands of people, thanks to an entire hall being reserved for it. Even more will be able to witness the mayhem on the livestream, which will be detailed at a later point.

Those attending Gamescom have free access to the show, and the first 200 to enter will get a bagful of exclusive Metal: Hellsinger merch.

Play through an epic storyline, narrated by award-winning actor Troy Baker and Jennifer Hale. With the campaign conquered, make sure to dive into Torment mode and ride the metal beat to the top

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.
