Look brutal in public with Brutal Legend t-shirts

News posted by Ryan on November 12th, 2009 at 2:33pm GMT

You probably already wear an official Brutal Legend t-shirt every time you go out, making it clear to the world where your devotions lie. But can you wear the same Brutal Legend t-shirt every time you go out? What happens if you spill mayo all over its beautifully dark surface?

An easy solution is now provided courtesy of Mishka NYC: two awesome Brutal Legend t-shirt designs! One depicts Ironheade attacking Lionwhyte’s crew, the other features a metal beast being ridden by its mistress.

They’re not available yet, but they’re coming soon and Electronic Arts will be giving a number of them away.

The Art of Brutal LegendAs with any game from Tim Schafer’s team, Brutal Legend is a living piece of art that exudes aesthetically pleasing delight from every pore. With each last inch of the environment given the utmost attention, it’s arguably one of the most beautiful games of all time.

So it’s fortunate there’s a book coming out shortly full of Brutal Legend production art! Spanning 252 pages, The Art of Brutal Legend will feature concept art, behind-the-scenes features, and additional lore that ensures you know everything there is to know about the epic world of Brutal Legend and how it was put together.

You can currently pre-order it from both Amazon UK and Amazon US.

In other Brutal Legend merchandise-related news, you can now get a very limited number of Eddie Riggs figures for $150 each from the official Double Fine shop. This may be one of the last chances you get to own one of these!

Tim Schafer in Brutal BusAlthough the Brütal Bus’s thunderous victory is now just a memory, its awesomeness will live on through an in-depth making-of article on Destructoid that reveals how it was put together.

The article features loads of fantastic photos — including some from the race — videos, and Tim Schafer himself sitting in the bus! There’s also a tantalising teaser of an upcoming project at the end.

First add-on DLC for Brutal Legend next week

brutal_legend_20090507141559Less than a month after release, the first add-on DLC for Brutal Legend will be hitting Xbox LIVE Arcade and PlayStation Network next week respectively on November 3rd and November 5th.

Titled ‘Tears of the Hextadon’, the DLC includes two multiplayer maps and the ‘Blade of Ormagoden’ axe. In Tim Schafer’s words:

“Circle of Tears is named after the crying of my vanquished foes on the battlefield, and Death’s Fjord is obviously a tribute to my Nordic ancestors, and their love of fan geysers and… Well, actually I just thought the name was cool.”

Interestingly, Sony seems to have netted itself some kind of deal because PlayStation Network buyers can get the DLC for free until November 19th, after which it becomes $5/£3.99. Xbox LIVE Arcade buyers will pay 400 Microsoft Points regardless.

I personally hope we see some single-player DLC shortly!
