Electronic Arts Signs Brutal Legend

To be released during Autumn 2009
Electronic Arts today announced they have signed Brutal Legend, a game in the works at Double Fine Productions for the PS3 and X360 and scheduled to be released during Autumn 2009. Brutal Legend is the chronicle of Eddie Riggs, a roadie of a virtuous metal band, pulled back in time to learn his true purpose. Offered the wealth and knowledge of an ancient kingdom in exchange for assembling a legion of his own design, the roadie commands a barbaric mob of demons, dragsters, amp stacks, leather and chrome. Together they thunder across the land in the ultimate Tour of Destruction, driving the ancient world headlong into the Age of Metal.
