Brütal Legend Adds 4v4 Multiplayer Skirmish To Set ListS

When we spoke to Double Fine Productions' Tim Schafer at E3, he teased the reveal of Brütal Legend's then unannounced multiplayer modes. Consider (one of) those multiplayer modes a secret no more, thanks to the ancient tomes of Xbox.com!!

The game's product page describes the "four-versus-four 'skirmish' multiplayer" mode as a holy union of "action combat with a strategic unit-control mechanic." We know that Brütal Legend protagonist Eddie Riggs can amass armies of headbangers, groupies and amp-wielding roadies to do battle in the game's single player mode, but it appears we'll be able to take that action-strategery on the internets.

See? "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." Seems pretty clear to us.
