Schafer unveils Brütal Legend

See it on EGTV now.

Although Sierra has yet to own up to it, Tim Schafer and Double Fine Productions have finally taken the wraps off their next game in the pages of US magazine Game Informer. Its name is Brtal Legend.

It's a game that pays homage to the ancient and mysterious forces of rock, and puts you in the biker-boots of Eddie Riggs, probably the best roadie in the world.

After fate takes a weird turn for him you will be slung into a fantasy world where even the air you breathe is inspired by metal history, and soon only your knowledge of a good old roadie rampage can save the day.

Brtal Legend is a third-person action game for PS3 and 360, and stars the vocal talents of Tenacious D man Jack Black. It will be published by Sierra Entertainment and has a tentative release date of 2008.

Tim Schafer and his Double Fine Productions are the brains behind our 2005 game of the year Psychonauts. To say we are excited about this would be as obvious as blaming your friend for your fart.

Head over to Eurogamer TV to see the first ever cinematic for the game, which gives a good indication of what Double Fine is trying to achieve.
