Electronic Arts (EA) and Double Fine Productions say Brütal Legend will be available for the Xbox 360 and the PlayStation 3 on October 13th in North America and on October 16th in Europe.
Brütal Legend is a 3rd person action game rich in combat, imagery and storytelling, delivering lighter-flicking fun, says EA.
The company has re-launched Brütal Legend website (www.brutallegend.com), a source for trailers to screenshots, concept art to exclusive blogs from the Double Fine studio team, epic polls and more.
Brütal Legend tells the tale of Eddie Riggs, played by Jack Black. The ultimate roadie, Eddie is the first person anyone calls when they need guitars tuned or stages rigged, and has a love for hot rods and a photographic memory for every Heavy Metal album cover, and the lyrics those albums contained.
One night, a stage accident knocks Eddie unconscious, and he awakens in a world that looks very strange yet oddly familiar, a world where every Heavy Metal album cover and lyric Eddie knows has come to life, and where the evil emperor Doviculus and his demon army, The Tainted Coil, have enslaved the last remaining humans.
When an oppressed people request Eddie’s knowledge of modern warfare, he pulls from his own experience in the only occupation he’s ever had, a roadie for a Heavy Metal band, and under his command, this barbaric force of hot-rods, Marshall stacks, leather, and chrome will bring this ancient world into the age of Metal.
