Brutal Legend DLC Map Pack Coming Next Month

Brutal Legend publisher EA has announced 'Tears of the Hextadon,' a downloadable content pack for the heavy metal action adventure containing two new multiplayer maps.

"I play Brutal Legend online every night," explained developer Double Fine's president Tim Schafer in a press statement. "And I need more maps! 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. See you online!"


As a bonus, the map pack includes a new axe, the Blade of Ormagoden.

Tears of the Hextadon drips onto Xbox Live on November 3 for 400 Microsoft Points ($5). While PlayStation 3 owners might need to wait a torturous extra two days until November 5, the DLC will be completely free there until November 19, costing $5 thereafter.
