The Outsiders Unveil New Demon-Slaying Rhythm Game, ‘Metal: Hellsinger’


Developer The Outsiders and publisher Funcom unveiled their new game, Metal: Hellsinger, which is shaping up to be a cross between a demon-slaying FPS and a heavy metal rhythm game.

As part of IGN‘s Summer Of Gaming, the developer released a new pre-alpha gameplay trailer that showcases the rhythm-matching shooter. “There’s this zen state that you get into with rhythm games, and I’m getting into it with first-person shooters too. And I thought it would be cool if you could do both. Especially if I could do it with music that I love,” the founder said. by The Outsiders, David Goldfarb. IGN.

Check out the trailer below.

The game’s premise sees players slaying demons in hell, slowly building a song around the victims they mark. Metal: Hellsinger starts out with the drums, but as players slay to the beat, the music builds up, with individual instruments layered on until eventually the vocals kick in. At this point, players will slay with a 16x score multiplier, slicing, blasting and swinging to a carefully crafted soundtrack.

The game will feature an original heavy metal soundtrack with vocal performances from Matt Heafy of Trivium, Mikael St Anne of Dark Tranquillity, Björn Strid of Soilwork, and Alissa White-Gluz of Arch Enemy, among many others.

Metal: Hellsinger will be released for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X and PC in 2021.
