Metal: Hellsinger mod support has finally arrived on PC, allowing you to load in your own custom tunes to the game. You don't have to stop at metal, either; you can mod in any genre from EDM to reggae, and developers The Outsiders have handily put together a guide to help you do just that.
How does Metal: Hellsinger mod support work?
Since Metal: Hellsinger was announced all the way back in 2020, we've wanted to add our own custom songs to the already-awesome soundtrack, and now, Metal: Hellsinger mod support is letting you do that. Through the use of a modding tool, you can now import your own custom tracks into Metal: Hellsinger and play them to your heart's content.
You don't need a full copy of the game to mod it; you can go through the process using the demo as well. All you need to do is download free modding tool FMOD Studio, grab the Metal: Hellsinger modding package, then follow the steps laid out in the handy Metal: Hellsinger modding tutorial created by the developers.
There are a few caveats here, of course. Music without a fixed tempo isn't going to work too well; Metal: Hellsinger's gameplay relies on consistent beat patterns, so if your music has a lot of tempo changes, the game might struggle with it. You'll also fare better with music that has an absolute fixed BPM, so hip-hop might work better than lo-fi indie, for example.
The process for modding music into Metal: Hellsinger can be a little fiddly, so do make sure you follow the video step-by-step if you're planning to do it. You'll need to exercise a bit of patience, as the process can take a little time, but it'll be worth it when you're merrily blasting demons to Nine Inch Nails or Run the Jewels. You can see the modding process in action here, with a jazz mod created by the developers.
You can grab Metal: Hellsinger right now on PC, PlayStation 5, and Xbox Series X|S. The game is also available with an Xbox Game Pass subscription on both PC and console, and if you're playing on PC, the Game Pass version fully supports modding as well. Unfortunately, the console versions of the game don't support mods, so you'll have to make do with the badass built-in metal soundtrack. I'm sure you'll cope somehow.
