If you missed EA’s live-stream of this morning’s GamesCom conference, you missed Double Fine head Tim Schafer showing off my favorite new detail of Brütal Legend‘s combat: a double-team attack that can be pulled off with any number of partners in the game, but specifically the first, where lead character Eddie had his female cohort mount his shoulders, concert audience style, and used his lifted lighter to ignite her flame attack.

But still, what you do get is the trailer above, with little slices of wooly mammoth, beast riding, and mosh-pit-protected brilliance, along with bits of its online multiplayer, which is demonstrated at greater length (and with 100% more rhythm-game attacks), below:

And, the capper: Double Fine has also announced that a demo for the game will be released via PSN and Xbox Live next month, with a slice of gameplay to tide you over for the following month until its October 13th release.

  1. It’s so funny to me that stuff I found completely cheesy 20-odd years ago when I was like 11, actually look kinda cool now. Also, I watched that trailer with the sound off and was like, “That’s totally Jack Black”.
