EA and Double Fine are tossing out another downloadable content pack next week for Brütal Legend, much to the delight of the game's many fans. Hey, this is a title the community keeps suggesting could be Game of the Year, were it not for Modern Warfare 2.
On Thursday, December 17, gamers can check the Xbox LIVE Marketplace or PlayStation Store for the "Hammer of Infinite Fate" add-on, which introduces seven more back patches, upgrades to your trusty hotrod (paint jobs and actual features like weapons and GPS), and three new outfits for Eddie Riggs: Mountain Man, Black Metal, and Zaulia Threads.
Along with six more heads to unlock, achievement hunters can strive for the nine additional Achievements / Trophies. The expansion also crams four new maps into multiplayer: the Altar of Blood, Coiled Remains, Crucible of the Titans, and the Amplified Cliffs.
Whew, that's a lot of stuff. Don't worry, the asking price is just 480 Microsoft Points, which translates to $4.99 USD. Not bad, really.
“I’m excited about the beard, or course, and the new achievements and trophies,” said Tim Schafer, Double Fine Productions head honcho. “But the thing I really can’t wait to get my hands on is that Oculus of the Lost. Using it to find the last Bound Serpent isn’t cheating, because it looks so cool on my car.”
