Iron Maiden, the heavy metal band, has announced that it will be releasing a free to play Android and iOS mobile RPG called Legacy of the Beast that is said to be "action-packed". The game is based on three decades' worth of music and artwork as seen on album covers. By all reports, the game will feature recordings of unreleased music.
Developed in close collaboration with Iron Maiden’s management, players take on the role of the band’s iconic mascot, Eddie, in his many forms – each with unique abilities. Players explore new worlds, travel through time, and battle a cast of dramatic and engaging characters drawn from the expansive catalogue of Maiden’s albums and art. Gameplay is enhanced with a soundtrack using songs spanning the band’s entire career, including previously unheard live recordings of Iron Maiden classics adapted for the game by engineer Tony Newton under the close scrutiny of bassist and founding member Steve Harris.
