Metal: Hellsinger ‘Dream of the Beast’ is available as of this article’s publishing for Xbox Series consoles and PC, priced at $3.99/€3,99. No mention of Xbox One consoles, which the game is currently available on, at this time. A reminder that the game is currently on Game Pass as well.
We quite liked Metal: Hellsinger in our review, awarding the game an 8 out of 10 for its fast-paced gameplay, interesting locations, and rocking soundtrack. This DLC looks to ease the lack of variety that we had complaints about, and at such a reasonable price point too.
