No further Brutal Legend DLC planned

News posted by Ryan on March 3rd, 2010 at 9:00pm GMT

Brutal Legend designer Tim Schafer has clarified to a fan via his Twitter page that there’s no further Brutal Legend downloadable content currently in development. Unfortunately this means an end to hopes that there’ll be an extension of the single-player story (unless there’s a sequel).

Of course, don’t forget to check out the existing two DLC packs if you haven’t already:

  1. Tears of the Hextagon
  2. Hammer of Infinite Fate

And so I’m off, getting as many people as I can to buy this so it warrants a sequel over time.

You cant kill the metal!

I am really depressed now. I was really hoping for some more DLC, even if it was just a few more maps. I don’t understand why Tim would keep us waiting so long only to tell us that they haven’t been working anything all this time. I really hope that this is just some kind of cruel joke and there is a new DLC out next week. Please Tim, don’t disappoint your fans!

It’s the publisher’s fault, hopefully they will see the error of their ways.

9. drowned eddie 11 years, 2 months ago

they better make a sequal

10. Mykal 11 years, 2 months ago

For those unsure if this is true or not.
TotallyEpic asked,
“You know what almost made me cry? No more DLC for Brutal Legend…”
Which Tim responded,
“Nope. :( Unless the publisher decides to do it. That’s why I’m crying.”

11. Coggs 11 years, 2 months ago

Well, I am sure Brutal Legend didnt sell enough to give more money to DF to make anymore DLC beyonds the simple stuff like additional maps.

You know, any story DLC would require gathering voice actors again and that sort of thing, it all costs money. Lets just be glad at EA for picking up and releasing the game in the first place!

12. Coggs 11 years, 2 months ago

Speaking of sales, I’d like to mention that Brutal Legend just achived one million sales according to, I know they arent the most accurate site, but its got to be close! I belive a million sales is concidered at least a minor success in the game industry, so congrats to Double Fine!

13. demoncamber 11 years, 2 months ago

There will be a sequel, so I don’t mind no more DLC

14. Mykal 11 years, 1 month ago
15. Dr Ozzy 11 years, 1 month ago

they still sold over a million total that should warrant a sequel

Shut up!


21. exterminater999 11 years, 1 month ago

it really sucks that theres no more DLC for Brütal Legend, now us fans have nothing to talk about :( EPIC SUCKISHNESS!!!

22. Dr Ozzy 11 years, 1 month ago

Coggs thank god i thought you were dead and exterminater999 WE HAVE PLENTY TO TALK ABOUT

Burtal legend RULES

23. Dr Ozzy 11 years, 1 month ago

I Want burtal legend 2 NOW!

24. Coggs 11 years, 1 month ago

What I really want is for Double Fine and EA to get a damn patch out for the PS3 owners of Brutal Legend, not to mention the multiplayer needs to have the DCers count as a loss so the community can stay semi-decent. With BL only 20 dollars at stores like Wal-mart, there is an influx of new players and it would be best to try to keep them around.

25. Dr Ozzy 11 years ago

I think double fine and EA probably could have marketed it better it was almost unheard of were i come from and in many other parts of the EU

26. hamster562 11 years ago

Yes, the marketing was not very good but I made all my friends buy it. Everyone else should do the same (if for some reason you haven’t already).

27. Dr Ozzy 11 years ago

lol same here ;-)

28. Dr Ozzy 11 years ago

p.s i know this really aint the place but Coggs do have a gamertag?

29. Dr Ozzy 11 years ago

or you tube?

30. Coggs 11 years ago

Yes, The Coggs is my gamer tag.

Also, here in America, Brutal Legend got some decent advertisment, a commerical that played often for a month or so. The only problem is it was advertised wrong. The advertisments made it sound like it was an action game with little to no mention of the RTS portion, which maybe in the end was for the best as people will flock to an action game more then they will and RTS game.

31. Dr Ozzy 11 years ago

yeah but un the uk and europe i only seen the advertisment 3 times over 3 weeks and it only lasted 3 seconds i think they only did advertise the teaser here

32. Azgard100 11 years ago

There was no adverts or any type of propaganda, just a lonely review in a desolate magazine… :(

33. Dr Ozzy 11 years ago

see this is what i mean EA did not pay attention to brutal legend because it was not a triple a title it still sold over million but only because tim schafur (

34. Coggs 11 years ago

Well, thank god for EA anyways, without them we wouldnt have probley got Brutal Legend. I really hope that there is NO publisher issues with Double Fines next game, I mean, both Psychonauts and Brutal Legend had major publishing issues and you can tell in Brutal Legends case that it actually effected the quality/length of the game.

35. Dr Ozzy 11 years ago

agreed p.s go on your XBOX!!

36. Azgard100 11 years ago

With that in mind Brutal Legend almost faced the guillotine when activision canceled or what ever they did, and i agree, thank God for EA or there would have been no Brutal legend…

37. Dr Ozzy 11 years ago

through hell or high water tim would have got thtat game relesed EA just was the first taker and they could not even advertise it right!

38. Dr Ozzy 11 years ago

through hell or high water tim would have got that game relesed EA just was the first taker and they could not even advertise it right!

39. Dr Ozzy 11 years ago

sorry for the double post my comp went funny for some reason.

40. Azgard100 11 years ago

It’s survival for the fittest, I hear of gaming companies filling for bankruptcy and I stand by what I said, plus there was an attempt by activision trying to sue EA…

41. Dr Ozzy 11 years ago

true but thats got nothing to do with what i said

42. Azgard100 11 years ago

I said I stand by what I said…which means I disagree…

43. Dr Ozzy 11 years ago

well then disagree why the hell post a comment if thats all your gonna say? read comment before you post!

44. Azgard100 11 years ago

Such aggression, look I’m a big fan of the Game there is no doubt that Brutal Legend oozes awesomeness, but still think there was a chance that the game was going to not get published. Just to clarify I do read the posts and I did make sense… so just slow down speedy. I may be ambiguous at times, so tunnel visioned people can’t see the bigger picture…SOZ!

45. Dr Ozzy 11 years ago

aggression? aggression!!!……………..hmmm i forgot what i was going to say oh well chill dude its a manic preformance i put on to make me seem like like some hardcore fan (i am but not Hardcore hardcore if you cach my meaning) so chill dude in this fansite you can say whatevers on your mind and if people dont agree with what you say…screw em(theoretacly speaking of course) or you could have a flame war…….in fact lets have flame war!

(or not)

46. Azgard100 11 years ago

What the fuck is a Flame War?…

wtf, make a game where the ending is practically set up for DLC(single player story expanded) “until daviculus rises again another day/yadda yadda” that lingo tells me there SURELY woulda been add on content to atleast give a few more hours of single player gameplay since the single player game was SO SHORT to begin wtih… Also i find it BOGUS that they STILL HAVE NOT fixed the Multiplayer to wher eu can auto find a 4 player match instead of having to know someone with the game and invite them from ur friends list JUST to have a 2 vs 2 match, kinda like match making technology used in the stone age, common TIM U KNOW U CAN DO BETTER THAN THIS!! U BETTER BRING A BRUTAL LEGEND 2 OUT BECAUSE THIS IS THE ONLY GAME THAT MADE ME PLAY CONSTANTLY UNTIL I BEAT IT ON BRUTAL DIFFICULTY. Kinda hard to get the plat when u’re limited to only 1vs1 multiplayer when u don’t have any friends on your friendslist to invite that has the game to join u in 2vs2, so this game is basically a standard 1vs1 unless ur LUCKY and have a friend that has it…. should be auto search for players and invite friends at your own will… only flaw i found with this game that totally blew me away from multiplayer and the short length of the main single player story…. COMMON TIM BRING THE ENCORE!!!! \m/

50. j 11 years ago

oh and maybe tim just made this game just to see if it was successful and being it was he got paid and now he just wants to go blow all his money and say screw us die hard fans of him because obviously HE’S NOT LISTENING TO US FANS!!!! IF HE WERE…. Then there’d be MORE dlc, and extended single player campaigns…. This is low even for tim… so if this really is the case and he does us dirty like this, it just makes me wish they’d had never won their lawsuite and never let the game be released as much as i love it i HATE someone who makes a game n hypes the fans to think there will be more just to find out THIS LATE that we’ve been ignored and forgotten about. The two DLC multiplayer map packs were crap and that’s ONLY because they NEVER fixed the auto match making mechanic for 2vs2, only 1vs1 still… shame… i shouldn’t have to have a friend on my list that has this game just to be able to play 2vs2, i should be able to join a match and someone automatically join randomly as my partner, which is also how u “get to know new people” so what is this game? Great but the kind that slams the door in your face when it’s over? This is a new era, the era of EXTENDING SUCCESSFUL GAMES AND DROWNING GAMES WITH AWESOME DLC!!! This game STILL has SO much potential and if they’d just add an expansion to the single player campaign i’d be super happy, that or make a Brutal Legend 2, maybe where you can find out more about Eddies Dad when he went to the land of metal and other things like how diviculous became so powerful and more about ophilias parents and such, the game has SO much lore with SUCH LITTLE information about it!!! WE NEED MORE!!!!!!!! SCHAFFER GET OFF UR FAT ASS AND GET TO WORK ON A PART 2!!!!!!!!! This time make the single player campaign ATLEAST 40 hours(at the fastest to complete) to 80 hours(if u want to explore), the game would be so much better than the first if that was implemented and more lore and story and explaination. thanks

51. Dr Ozzy 11 years ago

Flame War!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

52. Azgard100 11 years ago
