Double Fine's gaming ode to all things heavy metal, Brutal Legend, can now be played on your Xbox One.
Brutal Legend transports you from cover to cover of classic metal/rock albums. Imagine Judas Priest's ' Screaming For Vengeance - Special 30th Anniversary Edition (CD/DVD) ' album art coming to life or an entire area of gameplay inspired by Iron Maiden's ' Powerslave ' album.

- It has also been announced that Brutal Legend was the official sponsor of the 2009 Mastodon/Dethklok tour. Schafer appeared on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon on October 2, 2009 to promote the game. Black appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live! On October 14, 2009, dressed as Eddie Riggs and staying in character during his interview.
If you know my gaming tastes whatsoever, you’re probably aware that Double Fine is one of my favorite developers in the industry. While I love practically every game they’ve ever put out, Brutal Legend still stands as my favorite of the bunch.
Well, thanks to the fine folks at Xbox, I can now more easily revisit one of my favorite games on current-generation hardware. Yes, it was announced recently that Brutal Legend is now officially playable on Xbox One and has joined the ever-growing backward compatible list.

Look, I know we’re in a busy season and there’s a lot of cool games coming out soon but I cannot recommend enough that you give this game a shot if you haven’t before — especially if you love heavy metal. The amount of love that exudes out of every corner of Brutal Legend is staggering and I still think about its world all of the time. Plus, you can use an electric guitar to kill demons and that’s pretty cool.
If you still have your physical copy of the game like I do–mine is even signed by Tim Schafer–then you can throw it into your Xbox One right now to start playing. Otherwise, you can download it digitally off of the Xbox Marketplace for only $14.99.
In honor of @jackblack‘s new star, we’ve made Brütal Legend run on the Xbox One!
Okay, so it was the Xbox backwards compatibility team that did the work, not us, and releasing today was a coincidence. (Or was it?)
BUT STILL, THE METAL GODS ARE PLEASED!https://t.co/fRJxwOPXSEpic.twitter.com/6wQDI8ZwWP

From the product page:
Brütal Legend is an action-adventure that marries visceral action combat with open-world freedom. Set in a universe somewhere between Lord of the Rings and Spinal Tap, it’s a fresh take on the action/driving genre, which in this case is full of imitation cover bands, demons intent on enslaving humanity and Heavy metal tunes. Featuring the talents of comedian, actor and musician, Jack Black as super roadie Eddie Riggs, as well as cameos by some of the biggest names in metal music it's a wild ride in the belly of the beast that is not to be missed by gamers and Metalheads alike.Fangamer - Brütal Legend Vinyl Soundtrack: Ormagöden Edition
