In November, Double Fine rolled out its first batch of downloadable content for Brutal Legend. A multiplayer-oriented add-on, Tears of the Hextadon added two new maps to the game's Stage Battle multiplayer mode, which plays out as a real-time strategy game. Today, EA and Double Fine announced the second round of DLC, titled Hammer of Infinite Fate, will arrive for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 on December 17.

A substantially larger add-on than the first, Hammer of Infinite Fate offers four new Stage Battle maps, as well as a host of new customization options for protagonist Eddie Riggs and his hotrod, The Deuce. While the Jack Black-voiced protagonist will see only cosmetic options, the upgrades for Riggs' ride include the Oculus of the Lost, which serves as an in-game GPS, as well as the Eye of Sorrow weapon, which launches "black projectiles of doom."

The DLC also opens up six more heads to add to Mount Rockmore--an in-game counterpoint to South Dakota's Mount Rushmore--including Rima, Razputin, Dadbat, Hunter, Kage the Kannonier, and Double Fine studio head Tim Schafer. Gamers will also be able to acquire nine new achievements/trophies.

With the first expansion pack, EA gave the PS3 edition away for two weeks, before offering it at the same $5 price point as the Xbox 360 version. The publisher also appears to be cutting PS3 gamers a deal with the Hammer of Infinite Fate pack. Xbox 360 gamers can pick up the pack for MSP480 ($6), while the PS3 edition will be available for $4.99.
