It has been announced that Tim Schafer and Jack Black’s rock opera Brutal Legend (which has received positive feedback by both critics and fans alike) will be receiving some sweet DLC very soon. It will be hitting the Xbox Live marketplace on November 3rd with the PSN Store after that on the 5th. The DLC is a two map pack for both SKU’s, however on XBL the pack will cost 400 MS points, where on the PSN it will be free until November 19th. In other words, make sure if your even on the fence about buying the game, free is free, right? I have to say that i’ve seen DLC cheaper from one SKU to the other, but never one being free with it’s counterpart costing money or points.
Here’s Tim Schafer’s take on the map packs:
“I play Brütal Legend online every night”…“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!”
Im sure fans of the game (who actually play it online) will not mind spending 400 MS points on the content. And also it’s good to know that Double Fine will continue to push the game and content as well. Here’s some info about the maps.
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.
