EA’s fleshed out Brutal Legend’s multiplayer a little today, saying the system will provide four-on-four “skirmish” play.
From this PR:
Four-versus-four “skirmish” multiplayer marries action combat with a strategic unit-control mechanic. As the leader of one of the factions in the game, direct your armies in a Battle of the Bands where the trophy is survival, and even take your battle online over Xbox LIVE.
The last we heard of the game’s online compenent was as E3, when the following was released:
Online Multiplayer – Take the Metal madness online in Brütal Legend’s Multiplayer mode that combines action combat with a strategic unit-control mechanic that allows the player to direct their army in The Battle of the Bands, where the ultimate trophy is survival.
It’s all go. Happy Friday. Brutal Legend’s out this October.
