After being dropped from ActiBlizzard’s portfolio, Double Fine’s Brutal Legend (or Brütal Legend, for those with umlaut-equipped keyboards) seemed a lot like its protagonist, Eddie Riggs: lost in an uncertain and scary hellscape filled with treacherous beasts. Electronic Arts eventually picked up the game, and although there still might be a few publishing knots to untie, Brütal Legend has been officially dated for an October 13th North American release.

According to Tim Schafer, Double Fine head and adventure game legend:

Wooo! Having an official release date is awesome. And how cool is it
that EA threw down the dough to have the name of an entire month
changed to Rocktober?

Our European friends can expect the game three days later on the 16th.
