EA announced today that the "first DLC" (that means there'll be more, right?) for recently released Brütal Legend
will be arriving November 3 and November 5 on Xbox Live and PlayStation Network, respectively. Named "Tears of the Hextadon," the two, totally not RTS
maps ("Circle of Tears" and "Death's Fjord") will set you back 400
($5) on Xbox 360. If you're a PS3 owner, however, the map pack will be free of charge for the first two weeks. "We love the PS3," EA's Brent Dady said over on PlayStation Blog
, speaking on the publisher's decision to offer the DLC for free on PSN until November 19.
Those who get the DLC on either console will also get a free in-game axe -- the intimidating "Blade of Ormagöden." We suggest you start looking for the game's creative lead Tim Schafer, who claims in the release
that he plays online "every night." Get him Joystiq Biomass! Get him.
