Rhythm-action games have found a natural home in VR, offering engaging physical gameplay.

Considering its adrenaline-filled gameplay, read on to find out why you should be excited for Metal: HellSinger VR.

Why You Should be Excited for Metal: Hellsinger VR

First and foremost it is a rhythm-action thrill ride that should perfectly suit VR gameplay. Fitting somewhere between Doom, Pistol Whip and Ragnarock, Metal: Hellsinger VR is a journey through the eight hells. Accompanied by the game’s legendary original heavy metal soundtrack, you’ll be able to blast demonic hordes to pieces, racking up huge scores in time with the music.

Better still, because it’s in VR you’ll be able to dual-wield weapons independently, reload manually, and slay to the beat with your blade. Funcom will be making the game as accessible as possible, giving players the option for full movement, stick locomotion or seated play.

What is Metal: Hellsinger?

The original Metal: Hellsinger is the work of developer The Outsiders. It was published by Funcom in 2022 for PC, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X|S. There’s a single-player campaign to blast your way through, fighting all manner of demonic foes in The Infernal Planes on a quest for vengeance. As you’re part human, part demon, you have access to a full arsenal of powers and weapons.

Most important of all is the score. Metal: Hellsinger features artists like Serj Tankian (System of a Down), Matt Heafy (Trivium), Alissa White-Gluz (Arch Enemy), Randy Blythe (Lamb of God), and more.  

Put the Peddle to the Metal in 2024

Metal: Hellsinger VR is coming to Meta Quest 2, Quest 3, Meta Quest Pro, PSVR 2, and Steam in 2024, and can be wishlisted now. You can also download a flatscreen demo from Steam.
