Brütal Legend Demo to Melt Faces this September

If you’ve been counting down the days until you can step into the shoes of Brütal Legend’s main character Eddie Riggs, well, your day-counting has just gotten a lot shorter.

Today EA and Double Fine studios announced that both the Playstation Network and Xbox LIVE will be getting demos this September. And leave it to Tim Schafer to make an otherwise humdrum press release a little more entertaining:

“We just couldn’t wait. Villagers have surrounded our offices with torches, demanding the game. So we’re releasing a demo and hope that this taste of metal will keep the mob at bay until Brütal Legend comes out this
Rocktober.”

The demo will include an introduction to Riggs’ two main weapons: ‘The Separator’ (an axe) and ‘Clementine’ (also an axe, but the electric guitar kind). You’ll recruit Ophelia as an ally and get to drive ‘The Deuce’, a “super-charged, druid-destroying vehicle.”

All in all, this is looking pretty good for a first taste of the Age of Metal. And if you’ve already forgotten, Brütal Legend is set for an October release.

EA, please stop making people say “Rocktober”!
