Brutal Legend will be rocking some downloadable content very soon. The Tears of the Hextadon Map Pack will be made available on November 3rd for XBL and November 5th for PSN. The cost will be 400 Microsoft Points or $5. Within the map pack comes two new maps to be enjoyed in multiplayer stage battles. The first map, Circle of Tears, is a rounded map crafted for intense combat and flanking. The second, Death’s Fjord, contains a treasure trove of fans waiting to be tapped below the icy mountain pass, but you are left out in the open when you make the run for the fans. The map pack comes with more than just two new multiplayer areas. All gamers who pay for this download will be given a free axe upgrade, the Blade of Ormagöden. “I play Brütal Legend online every night,” said Tim Schafer, President of Double Fine Productions. “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!”
