Brütal Legend marries visceral action combat with open-world freedom, set in a universe somewhere betweenLord of the Rings and Spinal Tap. It's a fresh take on the action/driving genre, which is full of imitation coverbands.The vivid and wildly creative world of Brütal Legend is brought to life through a spate of chrome, leather, rockerbabes, epic music, fire-breathing/stud-wearing beasts, mountains made of guitar amps, and more. Follow Eddieas he embarks on a tour of epic destruction with an axe, a guitar, and his minions as he commands the powerof rock in epic band battles. It's lighter-flicking awesomeness that will melt your face clean off.
Action combat! Brütal Legend's core gameplay is classic action slasher, but with a twist: ranged combat comes from your demon-slaying, electricity-creating guitar. Add that 1-2 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 that is fun for the hardcore and accessible for the casual.
Streaming open world! Brütal Legend gives you 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 Brütal Legend looks like it was pulled from a Frank Frazetta painting.
Heavy metal will never die! Brütal Legend is full of cameos from Gods of Metal like Lemmy Kilmister, Rob Halford, Lita Ford, and many, many others. It has a MASSIVE metal soundtrack from every era of metal music: 1970's classic metal to 1980's hair metal to the scarier cousins of 1990's 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 like School of Rock and High Fidelity.
Kill ‘em All! 4v4 “skirmish” multiplayer marries action combat with a strategic unit-control mechanic. As the leader of one of the factions in the game, the player will direct his armies in a Battle of the Bands where the trophy is survival. Brütal Legend's multiplayer is online-enabled, so you can conquer your friends online via Xbox Live or Playstation Network*.
