Metal: Hellsinger is an upcoming rhythm FPS game in development by The Outsiders and Funcom. The former is a game studio consisting of ~30 creative people and two dogs.
The pair's latest offering to the gaming industry will have its players shoot demons and devils to the beat of headbanging metal music sometime next year.
The way the players experience Metal: Hellsinger will be based on their ability to shoot on beat as the game will increase their power with every measure they hit on time.
Metal: Hellsinger will feature an original soundtrack with vocals from metal icons such as Matt Heafy (Trivium) and Alissa White-Gluz (Arch Enemy).
Each level in the game will have its own song, and every song will be divided into multiple layers. Your performance will impact how many layers of the song will be played at a time, starting with atmospheric background music, and ending with powerful metal anthems.
"This gives the player an incentive to stay on beat because the experience becomes so intense and so powerful that you want to keep it that way," explains Funcom Chief Creative Officer Joel Bylos. "It’s a very ambitious project and one we are proud to be a part of," he says.
"We want to make this the most metal game ever," says David Goldfarb. "Or get as far as we possibly could, anyway!"
Metal: Hellsinger is due to release on PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One and Xbox Series X in 2021. The game will be optimized for next-gen consoles, with improved visuals, up to 120 frames per second, and reduced loading time.
