The Brütal Legend Steam listing discovered earlier in the month by NeoGAF has been proven to be true: Double Fine’s 2009 heavy metal-infused action adventure/stealth RTS (see what I did there?) will be landing on Steam sometime this year.
The game is currently in beta, with a pre-purchase available right now. Steam users who pre-purchase the game get it for $14.99 with immediate access to the multiplayer beta. Paying a few more dollars nets you the game’s original soundtrack.
The game will come with all the graphical improvements you’d expect from a console-to-PC port, including FXAA and SSA, higher resolutions, and better latency for online play. Upcoming updates for the game include an uncapped framerate, better shadows and increased draw distance. Suffice to say: this is going to be the prettiest version of the game by far.
Despite the game’s repetitive nature, I heavily enjoyed its humor and fantastic setting. Being a metalhead also has a bunch to do with my loving it.
I wonder if there will be a custom soundtrack option…then we could all finally add some Iron Maiden tracks that the original console versions were sorely lacking. Proceed for the reveal trailer.
