Brütal Legend out in October

EA delivering Schafer's latest.

EA has announced that Brütal Legend will launch on PS3 and Xbox 360 on 16th October. The US gets the game on 13th October.

Brütal Legend is a third-person action romp from the revered but slightly bonkers brain of Tim Schafer: him who made Day of the Tentacle, Monkey Island, Psychonauts and everything else we've ever loved.

Brütal Legend follows the adventures of heavy metal roadie Eddie Riggs, who finds himself saving a fantasy land from peril by using his non-exhaustive knowledge of rock. Plus, he'll be voiced by funny-man and real-life rocker Jack Black.

"Wooo!" whooped Tim Schafer in statement. "Having an official release date is awesome! And how cool is it that EA threw down the dough to have the name of an entire month changed to Rocktober?"

His excitement isn't entirely vapid, as Brütal Legend was unceremoniously thrown overboard by Vivendi during the Activision merger in 2008 and left to sink or swim. EA eventually threw Schafer and developer Double Fine a line late last year.
