Iron Maiden Launch “Legacy of the Beast”

As the excitement mounts for the return of Iron Maiden to the West Coast with their show at Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas on February 28, 2016 and the Los Angeles Forum on April 15 and 16, 2016, in support of their incredible CD Book Of Souls, the band are also releasing an interactive Video Game “Legacy of the Beast” Summer 2016 so now everyone can become part of the Iron Maiden Legacy.

Roadhouse Interactive, 50cc Games and Metal legends Iron Maiden are pleased to announce that Iron Maiden: Legacy of the Beast, an action-packed, free-to-play RPG steeped in Iron Maiden mythology, will launch worldwide this summer on iOS and Android platforms.

Roadhouse Interactive’s development and publishing divisions have been working hand in hand with Iron Maiden and their Phantom Music Management team, who have granted unparalleled access to the vaults in order to create a truly authentic Iron Maiden game.

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. 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 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.

Previously unheard live recordings of Iron Maiden classics have been adapted for the game by engineer Tony Newton under the close scrutiny of bassist and founding member Steve Harris, who says:  “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.”

Band manager Rod Smallwood says, “A game with tons of Maiden history, a load of unheard performances, and a chance to make your own Eddie army thanks to a world class Maiden-mad gaming company – now that’s something I’m very excited about and I’m pretty sure our fans will be too. Thank you Roadhouse!”

Phantom Music creative director Llexi Leon adds, “This is the first time we’ll see Iron Maiden’s lyrical lore and the rich mythology of the record covers brought together in a cohesive universe, exploring Eddie’s immortality and inviting players to control his destiny. The band’s signature theatrics and musical drama set the tone for a unique adventure that’s perfect for video games”
