November 3rd will bring about the release of the first DLC for Brütal Legend. The downloadable pack will be called "Tears of the Hextadon" and will include two new multiplayer maps as well as a new axe.
The pack, which will set you back 400 Microsoft points ($5) on XBL, will be released two days later on PSN and will be free for the first two weeks for PS3 owners. Where's the free map love for us poor Xbox owners? We're in a recession too you know! The Brütal Legend Tears of the Hextadon map pack expands the Brütal Legend Stage Battle multiplayer experience with two new multiplayer maps. In the first map, Circle of Tears, vile waters have carved a rough-hewn circular battlefield into a forsaken land that players must circumvent to destroy their opponent. In the second map, Death's Fjord, players find themselves on an icy mountain pass with a dense cluster of fans that lie below, waiting to be harvested by those brave enough to capture them without cover from enemy attack. All players who download the new map pack will receive a free axe, the Blade of Ormagöden.
So, if you've spent Rocktober, playing Brütal Legend multiplayer maps and they're getting a bit repetitive, keep rocking a little bit longer in to Movember and grab these new ones. Make sure to come back and let us know what you think!
