A new video game based on Iron Maiden will be released in the summer titled “”Iron Maiden: The Legacy Of The Beast”. The player is called to “battle as Eddie in his many guises across worlds inspired by the rich lore and music of Iron Maiden – one of the most iconic and influential bands of all time. A mysterious force has shattered Eddie’s soul and scattered the shards. Travel through time and space collecting the pieces as you encounter a cast of dramatic and engaging characters. A powerful soundtrack enhances gameplay, using songs spanning Iron Maiden’s entire career, including previously unheard live recordings adapted for the game by engineer Tony Newton under the close scrutiny of Steve Harris.”
The iconic Maiden leader commented about the video game release: “We always thought MAIDEN’s music and imagery with Eddie could be perfect for gaming and it’s something we have been looking at doing again since ‘Ed Hunter’ in 1999. Now in 2016 it can all be done on a smartphone which makes it even more accessible for all our fans and also all the gamers out there”.
