Good news for third-person action adventure fans as Double Fine’s Brutal Legend is currently available on Steam. Set in a universe somewhere between Lord of the Rings and Spinal Tap, Brutal Legend is an action-adventure that marries visceral combat with open-world freedom and features a talented voice cast including Jack Black, Lemmy Kilmister, Rob Halford, and more.
The PC version features both the Hammer of Infinite Fate and Tears of the Hextadon multiplayer map packs for free.
Brutal Legend’s 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 hardcore and accessible for the casual. On top of that, players will journey from Roadie to Rock God by commanding legions of metalheads into Brütal Victory and sending troops charging into battle.
Brutal 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.
The game is priced at 18,99€ and can be purchased from here.
