Boasting fast gunplay, great visuals, and a jaw-dropping line-up of famous artists from the rock and metal scene, Metal: Hellsinger has already won the 2022 Gamescom Awards for Most Wanted PC Game and Best Action Game and, at the time of writing, sits at a Very Positive rating on the Steam Store, with player reviews at an impressive 99% positive.
The game has also landed well with critics from various publications, with the title currently sitting on a solid Metascore of 79 on Metacritic, based on 38 reviews. We simply can't get enough either.
Metal: Hellsinger also turned heads at the Gamescom Awards thanks to a live performance of much of the game's music, which featured James Dorton and Mikael Stanne performing their respective tracks from the title to show attendees.
Speaking on the title in an interview with For The Win, developer David Goldfarb described the game concept as having come to him whilst playing Doom (2016) and listening to metal band Meshuggah, saying that he thought at that moment that “there could be a game” that combined the beat of a song with fast-paced shooting.
We couldn’t agree more!
The full game is now available on all platforms apart from the Switch and is also available as a day one release on the Xbox and PC Game Pass, so you can crank up your speakers and take the fight to the forces of hell today.
