Quick gaming history lesson here for those unaware of the backdrop to Brutal Legend. Brutal Legend is the latest outing from Double Fine who were behined the critically acclaimed Psychonauts; a game that proved that high review scores doesn't necessarily sell games (Metacritic average of 88 and yet only sold around 100,000 copies).
 
Their latest outing, Brutal Legend, was one of the victims of the Activision Blizzard merger. Where Atari stepped in to save the day with the Ghostbusters title, EA have done the same with Tim Schafer's latest trip in to the unknown.
 
Brutal Legend is a third person action/adventure game 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.
 
“This is awesome news!” stated Tim Schafer, President of Double Fine Productions. “The quality and creativity of the games EA Partners has been involved with make it a perfect home for our baby, Brütal Legend. Some people were starting to wonder if the saga of Eddie Riggs would ever see the light of day, but now I think it’s clear that this game, like Metal itself, cannot be killed!”
 
Brütal Legend tells the tale of Eddie Riggs, played by Jack Black, who is drawn back through time to a mythical world immersed 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 hellacious army man has ever seen, and thus brings this ancient world into the Age of Metal.
 
Brutal Legend is set to touch down in autumn 2009 and will be shown at Spike TV's VGAs this Sunday.
