Double Fine Confirms Brutal Legend for PC

Recently, Double Fine's Brutal Legend was spotted on the Steam CDR, hinting at the fact that a Brutal Legend PC release wasn't far away. The entry was then deleted and replaced with a Steam "test app", making it appear as if the listing were a mistake.

However, there's no longer any need to rumormonger, as Double Fine's confirmed the existence of Brutal Legend for PC. Brutal Legend now has a Steam store page, which lists its release as February 23rd. The preorder cost for the game is $14.99, 25 percent off of the usual list price.

Double Fine is also currently holding a multiplayer beta for the game. Anybody who preorders the game will gain automatic entry into the beta. “Adding a PC release to Brütal Legend’s list of conquests risks raising the world’s ambient Metal saturation to dangerously high levels,” said Double Fine designer Tim Schafer, “which is why we’re conducting this closed beta test for preorders.”

    Absolutely no doubt in my mind that EA will find a way to ruin this title for the PC.

    A 2009 console game being ported to PC almost 4 years later? Sounds like they are reaching for easy cash. I didn't care much when it released on consoles, and I don't care now. Why anyone is looking forward to a mediocre console game from 3+ years ago being ported to the PC is beyond me. What's even more beyond me is how games like this get a port, but ground breakers like Heavy Rain remain exclusives.

    I thought the game was freaking awsome on the 360 did you even play it ? it had a really unique rts system built into an action RPG game. it also had an awesome story.

    The only issue i had with the game is they advertised it as featuring all teh greatest metal bands (it does get most ), but alas it didn't have a single Iron Maiden song , the most influential old school metal band , metallica , mega deth , slayer , sepultura , pantera, Iced earth, and about half the bands that had music in the game were influenced and listened to iron maiden themselves. when i beat the game with not ever seeing any thing from maiden i was like WTF ???

    a pc version will be awesome if done right, and hopefully it comes moddable. if they can manage that , i'll grab up a pc version asap.

  • There's always a choice:

    $20 for a digital license to a game that has licensed music in it that can, and will, someday be taken down and/or patched because the licensing ran out?

    -OR-

    Go to Ebay right now and pick up the disc version for PS3/Xbox for a whopping $5 where the only way the RIAA is going to get thier music back is to come to my house with a shotgun?

Groundbreaking exclusives usually have a particular publisher/developer making the title. check who published Heavy Rain. IMO its better to get a port from a great 3 year old game than not get one at all.

    I've reread info about the game, including my old game informer that had it on the cover. You guys are right in that it was a good, unique game. However, there are a *lot* of good games coming out in 2013, that haven't already been on consoles for years.

    Perhaps I took too harsh a stance against the game, in calling it mediocre. Still you might forgive me in that it TOOK THREE PLUS YEARS before they deemed the PC good enough to run a console game. If our platform wasn't good enough to launch on, why reward the company for coming to the table long after the game was relevant? I'd rather put my money into BL2, Bioshock Infinite, XCom, Miasmata, Dishonored, etc. I suppose those games aren't in the same genre, but PC has never really been a big destination of Music games. The most popular have been restricted to consoles for a long time. Bringing them to PC only now, as an after thought is insulting to me.
