Metal: Hellsinger - Leviathan Update (2023.12.07) + Purgatory DLC Release!


Hell’s fires are burning hot today! The Purgatory DLC and Leviathan Update are here to slay.

Our goal with today’s DLC and Update is to give all you legends exactly what you’ve been telling us you want: MORE original absolute bangers, NEW ways to annihilate demons and EXTENDED play time with the free new Horde Mode.

Finally, we’d like to give a huge thank you to all of you. We feel your energy through the screen, especially when we announce new things like this. We look forward to hearing your thoughts on everything we’ve just released.

Thank you, Hellsingers!

Note: Leviathan and Purgatory are only available for the PC, Xbox Series and PS5 versions of the game.


New game mode: Leviathan

  • Pick up from where the story ends in the Main Campaign with the new Leviathan horde game mode, accessible from the main menu.
  • Find a way to escape the maw of the beast, through three arenas, hordes of demons, and a new boss fight!
  • The Leviathan is ever in flux, and the order of the arenas will be different every time you begin your escape.
  • To carve a path forward, you’ll need to hone your skills: kill demons, gather Echo Shards for experience, unlock new Memories and upgrade choices, at the Altar of Echoes.
  • Beware of the Leviathan’s decaying aura – weapons will fade from your hands and the Unknown’s usual methods of destruction are not to be taken for granted.
  • Find comfort in death by gathering Void Echoes; with enough of them, you can unlock Dreams, more permanent abilities, that will aid you in your next escape attempt. And the next one. And the next one…
    • If you change your mind, you can reset your Dreams, and try a different path.
  • Encounter a new foe! Defeating the final boss unlocks a new outfit (which comes with its own new ability, too. Unlock it to find out!).
  • Use any of the songs you have available to create a Leviathan Playlist, which will shuffle and give each arena a song of its own.
    • If you choose only one song, only that one favorite track will play.
    • If no choice is made, all the songs you have available will shuffle.
    • Note: the Leviathan Playlist does not affect the boss music in Leviathan.
