Brutal Legend DLC lands on Xbox Live and PSN next month November 3 and 5, respectively.

Called Tears of the Hextadon, it has two maps for multiplayer and will be free on PSN until November 19, after which it will run you £3.99/$3.99. It’s not free anytime on XBL at all, and will run you 400 MS Points.

The Brütal Legend Tears of the Hextadon map pack expands the Brütal Legend Stage Battle multiplayer experience with two new multiplayer maps. In the first map, Circle of Tears, vile waters have carved a rough-hewn circular battlefield into a forsaken land that players must circumvent to destroy their opponent. In the second map, Death’s Fjord, players find themselves on an icy mountain pass with a dense cluster of fans that lie below, waiting to be harvested by those brave enough to capture them without cover from enemy attack. All players who download the new map pack will receive a free axe, the Blade of Ormagöden.

Full press release is through the break, and you can also check it out on the US PS Blog.

(NASDAQ:ERTS) and Double Fine Productions Inc. will turn up the volume come November when the first downloadable content is released for the heavy metal, third person action game, Brütal Legend™.

“I play Brütal Legend online every night,” said Tim Schafer, President of Double Fine Productions. “And I need more maps! Circle of Tears is named after the crying of my vanquished foes on the battlefield, and Death’s Fjord is obviously a tribute to my Nordic ancestors, and their love of fan geysers and… Well, actually I just thought the name was cool. See you online!”

Brütal Legend has received acclaim by critics worldwide, with PLAY Magazine scoring Brütal Legend a perfect 10 out of 10, calling it the, “greatest video game ever created”. IGN also praised Brütal Legend, giving it 9 out of 10 and awarding it Editor’s Choice, calling it, “one of the best games all year Brütal Legend is available for RRP £49.99 on the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system and PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system.
