Brutal Legend is a third person action video game developed by Double Fine Productions and published by Electronic Arts for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, set to be released on October 13 2009, starring Jack Black in the role of roadie Eddie Riggs, who sets on an epic quest to build an army of rockers with only a broad axe, a big block V8 and his faithful guitar in hand. Eddie Riggs has been drawn back through time to a mythical world dripped in Rock and Roll folklore; where great Metal titans once ruled and power chords rang from the countryside for all to hear. 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. From this springs the most fallacious army man has ever seen, and thus brings this ancient world into the Age of Metal.

The core gameplay of Brutal Legend is classic action slasher, but with a twist: ranged combat comes from your demon-slaying, electricity-creating guitar. Add that one-two punch to a guitar solo mechanic that can summon objects, buff your teammates, or cripple your opponents, and you have a deep, gratifying core gameplay combat loop fun for the hardcore and accessible for the casual.

Have the freedom to walk, drive, or fly anywhere in a fully streaming open world whose art style is inspired by some of the most iconic and hilariously rad metal album covers ever created. Every vista in the beautiful universe of BrĂ¼tal Legend looks like it was pulled from a Frank Frazetta painting.

It has a MASSIVE metal soundtrack from every era of metal music, 70s classic metal to 80s hair metal to the scarier cousins of 90s metal. And of course, Jack Black pays the ultimate homage to metal as Eddie the Roadie, continuing the theme from the work of his band, Tenacious D, and his previous films including School of Rock and High Fidelity.

Four-versus-four "skirmish" multiplayer marries action combat with a strategic unit-control mechanic. As the leader of one of the factions in the game, direct your armies in a Battle of the Bands where the trophy is survival.
