Iron Maiden are once again to enter the world of gaming with Iron Maiden: Legacy of the Beast. A free-to-play mobile roleplaying game it will be set in the Iron Maiden Universe.
The announcement of the game was made by Iron Maiden on the new website for the game:
“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 game is being developed by Roadhouse Interactive who previously worked on mobile titles like Warhammer 40,000: Carnage. This also isn’t Iron Maiden’s first venture into gaming as they released the browser based Speed of Light game which featured the bands iconic mascot Eddie.
