Metal: Hellsinger lets you rain down demonic fury upon Hell's unfortunate denizens in what could be one of the month's most intense games. Paired with a metal-infused soundtrack and several great singers lending their voices, prospective players are likely wondering about its length and how long it takes to beat the game's story mode.
Having played through Metal: Hellsinger for our review, I can say that its story mode doesn't take excessively long to beat. But the game's "length" and how much time you can squeeze out of it mainly depends on how keen you are on reaching the top of its leaderboards.
Metal: Hellsinger Length
Completing all the levels in Metal: Hellsinger's story mode took me somewhere between 5 and 6 hours on Goat difficulty, which is the equivalent of Normal difficulty in other titles. Bumping it up to Beast or down to Lamb could result in a few hours being added or cut from that figure.
Most levels also have three Torments attached to them. These are timed arena-based encounters that alter the game's ruleset and reward Sigils, which help you become more efficient when playing through or revisiting the story mode proper.
You can finish some torments in mere minutes, but I had trouble beating the later tiers on the very first attempt. Then, playing through the story mode's levels with different Sigils and weapons equipped can help squeeze a couple more hours from the game.
- Metal: Hellsinger length: 5-6 hours (story mode on normal)
But really, the largest contributor to post-campaign length is the challenge of reaching the top of the leaderboards.
There's one for each Hell and competing against others can greatly extend how long it takes to beat Metal: Hellsinger, provided you're masochistic enough to only consider the game done when you've topped one or more.
By the time I was done trying out what it has to offer (minus any leaderboard-related shenanigans), I had spent some 10 joyous hours blasting apart demons and synchronizing my shots and actions with the beat of some, frankly, really awesome metal tracks.
Metal: Hellsinger's length might not rival that of sprawling AAA RPGs, but there's a lot of intensity contained within The Outsiders' first-person shooter.
