*Note: this version of Brütal Legend is single player only.
BrütalLegend is an action-adventure that marries visceral action combat with open-world freedom. Set in a universe somewhere between Lord of the Rings and Spinal Tap, itâs a fresh take on the action/driving genre, which in this case is full of imitation cover bands, demons intent on enslaving humanity and Heavy metal tunes. Featuring the talents of comedian, actor and musician, Jack Black as super roadie Eddie Riggs, as well as cameos by some of the biggest names in metal music its a wild ride in the belly of the beast that is not to be missed by gamers and Metalheads alike.
The vivid and wildly creative world of BrÃ¼tal Legend is brought to life through a spate of chrome, leather, rocker babes, epic music, fire-breathing/stud-wearing beasts, mountains made of guitar amps, and more. Follow Eddie as he embarks on a tour of epic destruction with an axe, a guitar, and his minions as he commands the power of rock in epic band battles. Itâs lighter-flicking awesomeness that will melt your face clean off.
BrÃ¼tal Legendâs combat is a combination of classic action slasher and real time strategy mechanics. Melee and ranged combat come from your double-sided broadaxe and demon-slaying, pyrotechnic-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 core gamers and accessible for the casual. On top of that, players will journey from Roadie to Rock God by commanding legions of metalheads into BrÃ¼tal Victory and sending troops charging into battle.
A Streaming Open World
BrÃ¼tal 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 BrÃ¼tal Legend looks like it was pulled from a Frank Frazetta painting.
Packed With Cameos and Voice Talent
BrÃ¼tal 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: 1970âs classic metal to 1980âs hair metal to the scarier cousins of 1990âs 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.
The music in BrÃ¼tal Legend is truly massive. Made up of 108 of the most rocking tracks from 75 different bands representing every sub-genre of metal, it is something to experience in and of itself.
