Less than a month after release, the first add-on DLC for Brutal Legend will be hitting Xbox LIVE Arcade and PlayStation Network next week respectively on November 3rd and November 5th.
Titled ‘Tears of the Hextadon’, the DLC includes two multiplayer maps and the ‘Blade of Ormagoden’ axe. In Tim Schafer’s words:
“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.”
Interestingly, Sony seems to have netted itself some kind of deal because PlayStation Network buyers can get the DLC for free until November 19th, after which it becomes $5/£3.99. Xbox LIVE Arcade buyers will pay 400 Microsoft Points regardless.
I personally hope we see some single-player DLC shortly!
