IRON MAIDEN‘s “Legacy Of The Beast” free-to-play mobile game is excited to announce another major in-game collaboration, this time with AVENGED SEVENFOLD‘s “Deathbats Club”.
Following several successful collaborations last year and several this year (in 2022 “Legacy Of The Beast” has teamed up with DISTURBED, POWERWOLF, ARCH ENEMY, FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH and WITHIN TEMPTATION),“Legacy Of The Beast” is very excited to immortalize AVENGED SEVENFOLD‘s iconic logo and NFT project the “Deathbats” into the free to play game. This exciting collaboration has culminated in a dungeon event called “Nightmare Carnival”.
Earlier this year, the “Deathbats Club” held an exclusive contest on the official “Deathbats Club” Discord channel for members of the “Deathbats Club” to have their bat featured in “Legacy Of The Beast” free-to-play mobile game. 25 semi-finalists were chosen but only three were turned into official playable characters in the game. All will be revealed at the Carnival…
Ringmaster Eddie is in trouble! The Dark Metal Carnival was set to open soon and now a mysterious figure and his host of deadly and mischievous skulls known as the Deathbats have taken over the fairgrounds! Players will have three different opportunities to win these Deathbats and add them to their team roster.
Meet the Deathbats Tuesday, October 18 at 5 p.m. PT in “Iron Maiden: Legacy Of The Beast” mobile game during the “Nightmare Carnival” dungeon event.
When asked about bringing the Deathbats into the “Legacy Of The Beast” universe, AVENGED SEVENFOLD lead vocalist, songwriter and founding member M. Shadows said: “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.”
In “Iron Maiden: Legacy Of The Beast”, metal and RPG gaming fans take on the role of MAIDEN‘s iconic mascot Eddie who travels across a spectacularly diverse array of worlds by traveling through time in captivating 3D environments. Eddie appears in many forms, each a part of MAIDEN‘s rich history, and each with a set of special powers and abilities.
Navigator Games CEO Will Moore says: “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.”
