Officially revealed during Summer Game Fest 2022 yesterday, Metal: Hellsinger is heading to next-gen consoles and PC in September of this year and sees players shoot to the beat of the music. The game is being developed by Sweden-based developers The Outsiders and published by Funcom.
From the trailer below, it’s pretty clear that Metal: Hellsinger is set to be a chaotic game but in the best way. Perhaps taking inspiration from the likes of Doom, Metal: Hellsinger sees players fight through various hellish locations shooting monstrous enemies, with the better you are at slaying beasts affecting the intensity of the game.
It wouldn’t be a good “headbanging rhythm shooter” if it didn’t have an appropriate soundtrack. Not to worry as the Metal: Hellsinger soundtrack was scored by composer duo Two Feathers and features appearances from heavy metal icons Serj Tankian from System of a Down, Alissa White-Glüz from Arch Enemy, Matt Heafy from Trivium, Randy Blythe from Lamb of God, plus many more.
Metal: Hellsinger is due to release on September 15, 2022, and will be available on PC, PS5, and Xbox Series X/S. If you just can’t wait that long, you can pre-order the console version of the game as well as wishlist it on Steam (opens in new tab) from today, as well as play a free demo on all platforms.
After studying Film Studies and Creative Writing at University, I was lucky enough to land a job as an intern at Player Two PR where I helped to release a number of indie titles. I then got even luckier when I became GamesRadar’s trainee news writer where I get to spread the word about the goings-on in the video game world. My expertise lies in Animal Crossing related topics after spending the last 15 years immersing myself in island life. I also know a thing or two about The Last of Us, and way too much about the Kingdom Hearts series.
