Brutal Legend multiplayer DLC drops next month

Double Fine's Stage Battle mode expands with two new maps; 360 version hits Nov. 3 for $5, PS3 version free from Nov. 5-19.


With Activision and Electronic Arts no longer feuding over the rights to release Brutal Legend, Double Fine is free to riff upon its third-person action game however it deems fit. As such, EA and Double Fine announced today the first downloadable content for Brutal Legend will be available for the Xbox 360 on November 3 for MSP400 ($5). PlayStation 3 gamers will be able to download the pack on November 5 for free until November 19, at which point it will cost $4.99.

Titled Tears of the Hextadon, the DLC adds two new maps to Brutal Legend's Stage Battle multiplayer mode, which plays as a real-time strategy game. The Circle of Tears map sees players competing in circular combat zone that has an inhospitable region that players must navigate around to get at their enemies. The second map, Death's Fjord, is positioned atop a frigid mountain pass, with players challenged to secure fans without aid of cover.

In addition to the two multiplayer maps, those who pick up the Tears of the Hextadon DLC will receive the Blade of Ormagoden for free. For more information, check out GameSpot's previous coverage of Brutal Legend.
