“Adding a PC release to Brütal Legend’s list of conquests risks raising the world’s ambient Metal saturation to dangerously high levels, which is why we’re conducting this closed beta test for preorders.” — Tim Schafer
As previously speculated by Rikusorakairiown, Brütal Legend has finally been ported to the PC. For a few extra dollars, players can get the "Soundtrack Edition", which includes the original soundtrack as composed by Peter McConnell (soundtrack is available separately for $7.99). Those who pre-purchase will save 25% in addition to receiving two unique Team Fortress 2 items, which will be released next Tuesday, on the February 14. This includes one hat and one taunt. On top of that, those who pre-purchase gain access to the multiplayer beta, which is currently live.
Steam Cloud support
Both the Tears of the Hextadon and Hammer of Infinite Fate map packs.
