Metal: Hellsinger VR Coming in Fall 2024, Demo Now on Steam!

Funcom® is excited to announce that Metal: Hellsinger® VR, the heavy metal Rhythm Shooter developed by Lab42 Games, will launch in Fall 2024 on Meta Quest 2 & 3, Meta Quest Pro, and PS VR 2, and is available to play right now in a new demo on Steam.

The demo features the brand-new lobby, an immersive new location from which you can select your level, music, loadout, and more. The demo features Voke and Stygia, the two first missions in the game, along with four weapons; Paz, your loyal and loquacious skull, who will also sear your enemies with fiery bolts; Terminus, a wickedly agile sword; The Hounds, a set of demonic twin pistols; and Persephone, a shotgun with a thunderous bark to match both its bite and the beat.

As part of the Upload VR Showcase, the demo was introduced by Matt Heafy, guitarist and lead vocalist for heavy metal band Trivium, in a new video.

All the weapons can be aimed freely in full VR. Shoot to the beat and – if you have a free hand – show your enemy the sign of the horns before you blast them away. Just like in the original game, each weapon has its own powerful ultimate that unleashes havoc on the enemy, such as the double-time tempo slashes of Terminus, or the stunning lightning strike of Paz.

Players can enter Hell headfirst on Steam right now and slay the hordes of Hell to the award-winning soundtrack written by composer duo Two Feathers and performed by metal legends such as Serj Tankian (System of a Down), Matt Heafy (Trivium), and Alissa White-Gluz (Arch Enemy).

Once the headset comes on and the music starts pounding Metal: Hellsinger VR snaps you into an unparalleled state of frenetic demon-slaying flow. Experience a taste of it in today’s free demo, and the full game in Fall 2024.

I've been an avid gamer since I stumbled upon ZORK running in my local Radio Shack in 1980. Ten years later I was working for Sierra Online. Since then I've owned nearly every game system and most of the games to go with them. Not sure if 40+ years of gaming qualifies me to write reviews, but I do it anyway.
