Sure, the Hammer of Infinite Fate DLC coming to Brutal Legend next week adds new multiplayer maps, weapons upgrades, and achievements, but what really matters is the beard.
Eddie Riggs gets three new outfits in the Hammer of Infinite Fate DLC - Black Metal, Zaulia, and Mountain Man - the latter of which sports what we can only imagine is a truly epic beard. Eddie's ride gets four new paint jobs and some interesting new weapon upgrades as well, including the Oculus of the Lost, a GPS that points you towards hidden items you may have missed in your travels.
The Altar of Blood, Coiled Remains, Crucible of the Titans and Amplified Cliffs maps will keep multiplayer battles fresh for those who dabble, while 9 new achievements and trophies will surely drive completionists slightly insane.
Of course, once again, it's all about the beard. Just ask the game's creator.
"I'm excited about the beard, or course, and the new achievements and trophies," said Tim Schafer, President of Double Fine Productions. "But the thing I really can't wait to get my hands on is that Oculus of the Lost. Using it to find the last Bound Serpent isn't cheating, because it looks so cool on my car."
Okay, ignore everything past the first comma. That's what he meant to say.
Hammer of Infinite Fate will be released for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 on December 17th for 480 Microsoft points or $4.99 respectively.
