Metal: Hellsinger - Update 1.5 (2022.12.08)


Muted in exile, my developer demons (dev-mons?) at The Outsiders have been hard at work to deliver to a Hell near you the new 1.5 update! Our first content update for Metal: Hellsinger brings a bevy of new stuff for you to sink your hooves in.

A new game difficulty, Archdevil, for those of you who already mastered the challenges of Beast mode. Beware! It’s not for the faint of neck. The headbanging and skill required to master this new difficulty is legendary!

To enhance this new difficulty and your next playthroughs, we’ve also added a bunch of new combos. These should give more options for you Hellsingers to slay the armies of Hell your way and be rewarded for it! Once you’re out and about finding these new combos out, keep an eye for the new collectibles hidden on each map! Collect them to unlock new cosmetic skins for my weapons! And while you take a break from all the dashing, roaring and slaughter (trust me, you’ll need it), make sure to peek at the new Art Book accessible in the Extras section. Hell never looked so good.

Along with this new content, we have worked on a bunch of game fixes and balance tweaks so you have an even better time slaughtering to my beats. Read all about it in the full patchnotes below!

Thank you for your rocking reception since launch. Seeing you (more than 1.000.000!) demons slay to the beats of my song of vengeance makes this journey worth every step.

Rock on! :metal:
