Double Fine appears to have gotten its Brütal Legend IP from the jaws of both EA and Activision, as it's self-publishing a PC version of the metal-themed action/RTS thing on February 26.
Pre-ordering before that date gets you the game for $14.99, $5 off the normal price (a Soundtrack Edition is also available for $18.74), along with instant access to a multiplayer beta. Oh, and because it's a game on Steam, you get a couple of Team Fortress 2 items.
Double Fine is also taking pre-orders on The Art of Brütal Legend, a hardcover, 252-page art book. Books pre-ordered from Double Fine's shop will be signed by Tim Schafer, though hats will not be included.
