Brutal Legend demo in September

Enter the Age of Metal.

EA has announced that a Brutal Legend demo will be available on 17th September for PS3 and Xbox 360.

The sampler opens as protagonist Eddie Riggs awakens in the Age of Metal: the fictitious land Tim Schafer and Double Fine have set Brutal Legend in.

You'll learn how to wield Riggs' powerful ancient axe and electrifying guitar to pull-off combos. And they will come in handy when dispensing with zipper-faced nuns and devilish druids. Eddie will meet ally Ophelia, too, and double-up his attacks to smash and bash rock demons into rubble.

"We just couldn't wait," said Schafer.

"Villagers have surrounded our offices with torches, demanding the game. So we're releasing a demo and hope that this taste of metal will keep the mob at bay until Brütal Legend comes out this Rocktober."

Brutal Legend will be released on 16th October for PS3 and Xbox 360.
