Hey, metal mobile gamers! You are now on high alert! Iron Maiden's free-to-play mobile game Legacy of the Beast has just announced Avenged Sevenfold and their Deathbats Club members will be introduced to the game's storyline and structure, marking yet another awesome collab pulled together this year by Maiden and Navigator Games. Just this year alone, the bands Disturbed, Five Finger Death Punch, Powerwolf, Within Temptation, and Arch Enemy have all been given the same treatment.
Avenged Sevenfold singer and founding member M. Shadows said in a statement, "It's important to us to continue to bring exclusive unique opportunities to our 'Deathbats Club' members, so when Iron Maiden and Navigator Games reached out, we were stoked to work with them on a unique concept for Legacy Of The Beast. I loved seeing our fans stoked on the chance to have their custom Deathbat NFT being selected out of 10,000 and then brought to life in Iron Maiden's game. What a cool experience."
The concept of Legacy of the Beast surrounds Iron Maiden's iconic mascot Eddie and his adventures somewhere in time. This newest endeavor with A7X has been dubbed Nightmare Carnival with Eddie as ringmaster and the Deathbats as the pesky flying skulls that have taken over the festivities. Fans will have the opportunity to win different Deathbat avatars, along with many other exciting in-game elements that will have fans in a frenzy.
Navigator Games CEO Will Moore, said in a statement that, "This year we have had an incredible caliber of in-game collaborations and we wanted to create something really special for Halloween. So we invited M. Shadows to develop the concept with us, and the result was the Nightmare Carnival! This collab delivers a whole new level of innovation as Eddie battles with three enemies inspired by Avenged Sevenfold's Deathbats."
