Well this is new… we’re getting a Motörhead game. As in the rock band headed up by that Lemmy chap who sings Ace of Spades. Yeah, that Motörhead. It’s also an expansion pack to the recently released ARPG Victor Vran. Confused? Let us expand a little.
Motörhead through The Ages is entirely new storyline expansion, with new enemies, weapons and rock-themed skills. It will be entirely Motörhead themed and the established “Victor Vran” universe will be extended with new adventures to experience and bosses to fight.
The new environments will comprise of war-torn landscapes and cities, Wild-West-inspired landscapes and the Dark Ages Castle where the Queen of the Damned resides. They’re all heavily inspired by and based on Motörhead`s history, lyrics and attitude.
The announcement statement says “Motörhead define the themes of the game as Victor faces evils relevant to our own world – religious fanatics, corrupt politicians and power-hungry oppressive rulers. During these quests he will be supported not only by the newly designed Motör-Weapons, -Powers and -Skills, but also a soundtrack with over a dozen tracks, partly never heard before!”
It’s all in aid of Motörhead’s 40th anniversary, apparently. Which is all well and good, but still leaves me feeling a bit lost. Is this really happening? Is this a good idea? How is this even possible?
Then again, I did like Brutal Legend, which is essentially the same thing. Motörhead through the Ages doesn’t have a release date yet, but Victor Vran is out on Steam for you to play now, should you so wish.
