Per the official description for the VR version: “Stare down the hordes of hell face-to-face on a thrilling ride to exact vengeance on the Red Judge, ruler of the hells, in the full original campaign, voiced by Troy Baker and Jennifer Hale. With the Red Judge defeated, Archdevil Difficulty and Torment Challenges await.”

From original “Metal: Hellsinger” developer The Outsiders in collaboration with Lab42 Games, the VR version of “Metal: Hellsinger” will be available on Meta Quest 2 and 3, Meta Quest Pro, PS VR 2 and Steam in 2024, with official release date to come.

“’Metal: Hellsinger’ in VR is a match made in heaven, or should I say hell,” Funcom chief marketing officer Erling Ellingsen said. “Even when we were working on the original, we fantasized about how thrilling it would be to play in VR and many fans have been saying the same. Now that fantasy is coming true and there is no doubt: slaying demons to the rhythm of epic metal tracks, all in full-motion immersive VR, is just as incredible as we imagined it.”
