Publisher Funcom and developer The Outsiders have delayed rhythm first-person shooter Metal: Hellsinger from its previously planned 2021 release window to 2022, as well as canceled the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions. It will now only be available for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series, and PC via Steam.
Here is an overview of the game, via Funcom:
Metal: Hellsinger is a rhythm first-person shooter in which you blast your way through Hell to the headbanging vocals of artists such as Alissa White-Gluz (Arch Enemy), Tatiana Shmayluk (Jinjer), and Mikael Stanne (Dark Tranquillity).
First announced in June 2020, Metal: Hellsinger immediately caught the imagination of gamers and pundits. It features an immersive and innovative way of incorporating music in games, through the use of layered tracks. Each level has its own song, and every song is divided into multiple layers. Your performance impacts how many layers of the song will be played at a time, starting with atmospheric background music, and ending with powerful metal anthems.
The Metal: Hellsinger development team consists of people with an incredible track record of creating blockbuster first-person shooter hits and is spearheaded by executive producer Shila Vikstrom and creative director David Goldfarb. An industry veteran with a history of first-person shooter success, Goldfarb was lead designer of Battlefield: Bad Company 2 and Battlefield 3, as well as game director of PAYDAY 2.
