We're proud to reveal Metal: Hellsinger, a rhythm FPS coming to PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X in 2021. Metal: Hellsinger sees you blasting your way through eight Hells to the beat of metal music composed for the game, with vocals by the likes of Matt Heafy (Trivium), Alissa White-Gluz (Arch Enemy), and more. The more on-beat your gunplay is, the more powerful you get, and the more intense the music becomes in turn. Check out a first look at the game in action below: [ignvideo url="https://www.ign.com/videos/2020/06/11/metal-hellsinger-official-announcement-trailer"] Narrated by Troy Baker, the story places you in the role of part-demon, part-human, The Unknown, and sees you fighting your way through various versions of Hell on the way to destroy The Red Judge. Directed by David Goldfarb (Payday 2, Battlefield: Bad Company 2), the game will give you a suite of hellish weaponry, each of which has an ultimate ability. You can also check out our interview with The Outsiders' David Goldfarb, and an extended look at gameplay, below: [ignvideo url="https://www.ign.com/videos/2020/06/10/metal-hellsinger-brings-rhythm-games-and-fps-together-for-a-one-of-a-kind-experience-through-hell"] Alongside a straight story mode, the game will also feature a challenge mode, letting you attempt to violently conquer leaderboards for individual songs, and challenge your friends to beat you. The Outsiders - a Sweden-based indie studio made up of many AAA veterans - recently announced that it had halted development on its intended debut game, Darkborn. It added that it would have a new game to show soon - Metal: Hellsinger is that game.
