About Eternal Descent: Heavy Metal Heroes

Developed by London-based PLA Studios, Eternal Descent: Heavy Metal Heroes explores the unholy alliance that has long existed between the worlds of heavy metal and fantasy comics. Brainchild of British guitarist and comic creator Llexi Leon, Eternal Descent: Heavy Metal Heroes is an action-packed, 3D scrolling endless brawler. Carve a path through hordes of daemonic minions and fight your way to Hell – all to a killer soundtrack. Set in a fantasy universe where lost souls lurk in every shadow and darkness veils sinister designs, heavy metal could be the key to salvation... or the gateway to destruction!

In addition to a cast of original characters, Eternal Descent: Heavy Metal Heroes will feature appearances and original performances from Joe Satriani, Arch Enemy, Wayne Static, Periphery, Andrew W.K., and many more rock/metal music acts appearing through regular updates. Numerous real-world instrument brands such as ESP, Jackson and Dean Guitars have endorsed Eternal Descent: Heavy Metal Heroes, allowing the game to accurately portray cameo musicians with their signature instruments for real shred guitar action!
