Upgraded version of 2009 Double Fine action game coming to Steam with all DLC; preorders get instant access to multiplayer beta.
Double Fine today announced that its 2009 action game Brutal Legend is coming to PC. The game is available to preorder today through Steam at a limited-time rate of $15. An exact launch date was not revealed, though the game will jump up to $20 when it's released in full.
Those who preorder the game today will receive immediate access to the Brutal Legend PC multiplayer beta, as well as two "exclusive" Team Fortress 2 items: Eddie Riggs' hair and his guitar Clementine.
The PC version of Brutal Legend includes previously released downloadable content Tears of the Hextadon and The Hammer of Infinite Fate. In addition, it has been upgraded, complete with "more detailed visuals" and "improved performance." Specifics were not mentioned.
Also available on Steam is the Brutal Legend original music score from Peter McConnell. The score will be offered as a stand-alone download for $8 or as part of the Brutal Legend 2 Soundtrack Edition for an extra $5.
Even though it is a tad late, I still enjoyed the hell out of Brutal Legend and would probably pick this up with the better visuals and DLC packs. Now the only thing we need ported to PC are:
Condemned 2: Bloodshot
Red Dead Redemption
...But I'm sure that won't happen
it's became too late, but still it's better than nothing. looking forward to play this one. I hope other great console games comes to pc as well.
When I saw Eddie's face my heart jumped at the possibility of this being a Brutal Legend 2 announcement. Tears of dissapointment now cover my laptop.
i dont play MEDIOCRE games, so no buy from me! Red Dead Redemption on PC this is what i Buy =) Hurry Up RockStar!!!
@Chui_GamingX God forbid a company thinks out of the box. We need more CoD-like games. Because they're awesome, with awesome characters and awesome stories and awesome, balanced multiplayer.
I'm no COD fan, but I love when people make it sound like COD games are stealing funding away from non-COD games. Like there are only 2 types of games; COD and non-COD.
Hate on those games all you want, but SOMEONE must be supporing them.
@Stabba_The_Kutt Your point ? Never said anything about the money, but since Modern Warfare 2 it's been breeding streamlined, boring games, both in the CoD series and from other developers. Nothing to do with funding but with what caters to the console masses. There's little interest in relevant story telling, character depth or even balanced multiplayer, making shallow, overpriced games.
@Chui_GamingX 82 on metacritic is not mediocre.
@Chui_GamingX game is awesome. Story is written by Tim Schafer with as usual fleshed out characters, and really cool backdrop. Gameplay is also 3 rd person strategy, really fresh and innovative, if thats your type. Its anything but mediocre. For me more of a masterpiece.
@Chui_GamingX OH NO! a game you don't like! While other people enjoyed it!?! Better announce it to the whole world and show how much of a hipster you are. Because hating stuff other people like is soooo cool.
Great news,just hope they add some exclusive dlc (Rob Halford chronicles :D ) so those who played it on consoles will buy it as well,i hope it sells great so we can finally see Brutal Legend 2.
I loved this game. It was fun, and had a killer soundtrack. I think DF is re-releasing it to see if there is a market for a sequel. I just hope that if they do, they drop the tower defense stuff and focus on the hack and slash.
I've seen the screenshot on Steam, then I compare with the video review here on GameSpot, the graphic comparison looks pretty significant, about 20% - 25% better, I think I might get it.
I certainly hope my eyes don't lie to me.
@gamefreak215jd Dont worry bro this game will be Anounce in May for PC =)
What do you do when your game flopped 4 years ago? Put it on another platform so it can flop again!! Brilliant.
ALREADY BOUGHT IT. Saw this on Facebook earlier and got it immediately. I've been hoping they'd port this to PC for years now. :D
I really hope the modding community picks this game up and adds new areas or missions or something. Either way, I just know I want to see more of this world.
A sequel would be awesome.
So first Double Fine makes me pay $59 for a half assed sub 25fps medicore game, now they want me to pay again for said half assed game, double fine indeed. Not happening.
@beyond_17 Just want to point out that Double Fine is responsible for porting the game to PC, they didn't make the game.
@beyond_17 If you bought it and played it on console a long time ago, why would you buy it again? This is for pc players who haven't played it yet. The key word here is "updated".
its good for people that dont have a gaming console instead they have a gaming PC...............but......a message for Double Fine developers.........MAKE A SECOND BL!!!!! that will KICK.......ASS!!!!!! in name of all gamers and headbangers u should make another one
@GameMaster-LN they tried to but EA said no, activision said they would buy the rights from EA to make the sequel, EA said no. so it's not gonna happen.
Holy hell, freakin sweet. I've been holding off on playing this game for soooo long and now it's finally coming to PC via Steam with all DLC and of course better graphics. All Hail Double Fine!!
