We’ve been bringing you quite a lot of coverage of next month’s release of Brütal Legend, Activision’s newest explosion of heavy metal and fantasy video games. Jack Black, Tim Curry, Lemmy, and Ozzy Osbourne are just some of the names that lend their talents to this epic video game, and there’s more gore and humor than you can shake a stick at!
The plot is about Eddie Riggs (Jack Black), the world’s greatest roadie, who can rig or fix just about anything in the world. He gets transported to a mystical world where rock is REAL and used to vanquish evil foes. You follow Riggs as he takes down demons and dragons using his epic axe and electric guitar.
The game is quite a lot of fun, and we’ll be sure to have a review up for you to check out soon. But for now, you get an exclusive peak at the intro video from the game that sets up the story. An interesting tool used throughout the game is an option to choose gore and profanity over censored violence and dialogue. This allows some of the older fans to take advantage of the brutality of Brütal Legend, while also appeasing parents who don’t want their children subjected to such things.
Check out the video after the jump. Brütal Legend hits game stores on Rocktober 13th.
