Attending the Summer Game Fest, the game's developers also revealed a September 15th release date and the start of console pre-orders, which are bundled with 48-hour Early Access. Metal: Hellsinger can also be wishlisted on Steam.

In the game, you'll play a character who's part human, part demon, and obsessed with vengeance. "Become The Unknown, and fight through the fiercest domains of Hell. Destroy the demon hordes and their leaders to set yourself up for an epic showdown with The Red Judge herself. Every legend has a song. And yours is one of metal, vengeance, and destruction."
