Headlining “Dream of the Beast” is a new song by Lacuna Coil singer Cristina Scabbia. One of the most respected singers in metal, she’s been rocking for almost 30 years and should prove to be an enormously great fit for Metal: Hellsinger. Lorna Shore’s Will Ramos is no slouch either and will be a fun addition to the already stacked OST.
“Dream of the Beast” also includes a weapon called the Red Right Hand, a machine gun that requires more precision to use properly. Three new costumes have been added alongside this weapon, changing the gameplay in immeasurable ways. These additions should provide an additional challenge for players who have wiped out the main campaign and its challenges.
Finally, a new song selection feature will be added in a free update that will launch alongside the DLC Metal: Hellsinger. This allows players to choose the song they want for each level, allowing you to create your own custom soundtrack for the campaign. This is how the aforementioned Lacuna Coil and Lorna Shore songs fit in since there are no new levels in Dream of the Beast.
While Dream of the Beast might not be the most robust DLC pack ever, it sounds like a solid addition too Metal: Hellsinger.
