GamesCom 2009 is currently underway, and unsurprisingly Electronic Arts is there to spread word of its upcoming games and announce things. Of immediate interest is a new Brutal Legend trailer that I’ve just added to the ‘Videos’ section, featuring a load of new stuff.
Of more distant but ultra-compelling interest is the promise of a demo! To be released in a month on September 17th, there’s no word yet on how much of the game it’ll include but you can bet your horns part of Tim Schafer’s commentary videos will be there to enjoy.
[August 19th, 2009 at 2:47pm GMT+1] According to a new page on the official Brutal Legend site, you’ll need to pre-order the game from certain vendors to actually get access to the demo on September 17th:
- United States: GameStop
- UK: GAME
- Australia and New Zealand: EB Games
- Italy: Blockbuster and GameRush
- Finland: Netanttila, VPD, and Discshop
[August 19th, 2009 at 3:34pm GMT+1] It looks like the official page was a bit unclear about this. Reports from other sources and people who pre-ordered indicate that the demo will be available to everybody on September 17th, and that those who pre-order will get it a week earlier on September 11th. Rock on!
