6th July 2016

Maiden and RPG gaming fans can now download Iron Maiden: Legacy Of The Beast, the action-packed, free-to-play mobile game where players take on the role of the band's iconic mascot, Eddie. Available now for iOS and Android devices, the teams at Nodding Frog, 50cc Games and Roadhouse Interactive have created a new and unique gaming experience in close collaboration with the band and its management team, Phantom Music Management.

The game is set in a visually stunning universe, comprised of an ever expanding series of worlds derived from Iron Maiden's music and art. Fans of the band and RPG gamers alike will battle and strategize as Eddie and his allies. Inspired by themes from the songs, and set against a powerful and atmospheric Maiden soundtrack, players will journey on epic quests to reclaim the shards of Eddie's shattered soul as he faces his most challenging adversaries.

James Hursthouse, CEO of Roadhouse Interactive told us: "As a life-long Maiden fan, I am exceptionally proud of Legacy Of The Beast and excited to launch it globally. It has been a privilege to work so closely with Maiden and their management. With this game I believe that we have created an outstanding, authentic RPG experience to appeal to all mobile gamers, including those discovering the band for the first time."

Maiden founder and mainman Steve Harris said: "We've always wanted to make a quality Maiden mobile game as we think the combination of Eddie and the music is so well suited - and it's a great way to get our music out to a new audience. When the opportunity arose to make a mobile game which our fans, along with hopefully a lot of the gaming community, can play pretty well anywhere in the world, and download for free at that, we jumped at it.

"The whole band visited Roadhouse while touring through Vancouver back in April and we were so impressed by the creativity, enthusiasm and passion of the team there. Visually, the worlds and character designs do us proud and the music just ties it all together."

Llexi Leon, Interactive Director of Phantom Music Management added: "Eddie is constantly evolving; he's a globally recognizable character that resonates with fans of all ages, and has taken on a life of his own beyond the album covers where he first appeared.

"This game gives players a chance to step into Eddie's world and experience an odyssey across space and time. In this incredible RPG adventure, we're able to explore the origins of Eddie's power and test the limit of his abilities, bringing new mechanics to the mobile RPG genre, and creating a truly unique gaming experience for everyone to enjoy."

In Iron Maiden: Legacy Of The Beast, players control Eddie's destiny across a spectacularly diverse array of worlds by travelling through time in captivating 3D environments. Eddie appears in many forms, each a part of Iron Maiden's rich history, and each with a set of special powers and abilities.

Players will amass an army of powerful allies to battle alongside Eddie and face the onslaught of foes hell-bent on destroying him. Legions of unrelenting enemies are commanded by the Agents of Control, including The Beast, The Wicker Man, Horus and The Axis General, all drawn from the expansive catalogue of Maiden's albums and artwork.

The game offers over 40 different Talisman sets to choose from, which all add to characters' vital abilities. With each battle, players will evolve their armies, take on ever-increasing challenges to reclaim the facets of Eddie's soul, and ultimately defeat the Agents of Control.

Gameplay is enhanced by a blistering soundtrack that features songs spanning the band's entire career. Players will hear rare, previously unheard live recordings of Iron Maiden classics adapted for the game under the close scrutiny of Steve Harris.

The game is now available for free on Apple's App Store and Google Play.




WACKEN WINTER NIGHTS IS HEAVY METAL WONDERLAND

wacken

Wacken Winter Nights 2018 takes place between February 23rd and 25th 2018 and the great news is that you can now experience a full-on, top class German Metal Festival easily and affordably.

It only takes an hour to fly to Hamburg from London and we've had longer journeys than that within the capital and they were certainly more expensive than the £33 air ticket that just appeared in our 'flights to Wacken Winter Nights' search.

Wacken Winter Nights is organised by the same team who are responsible for the world's greatest Metal festival, Wacken-Open-Air and the 2018 bill includes Skyclad, Orphaned Land, Elvenking, Finntroll, Grave Digger, Aeverium, Comes Vagantes, Coppelius, Corvus Corax, Die Pressgëng, Elvellon, Heimataerde, Hell-O-Matic, Ignis Fatuu, Ingrimm, Irdorath, Johnny Deathshadow, Krayenzeit, Letzte Instanz, Mr Hurley und die Pulveraffen, Pampatut, Pat Razket, Schandmaul, Sündenrausch, The Aberlour's, The Moon And The Nightspirit, Torfrock, Visions Of Atlantis, Vroudenspil, Wind Rose and more.



Besides this rich billing of superb Metal bands, there is so much more to see in the festival area including the medieval market and also the walking acts and jugglers you will meet at the theme worlds, including Robert Blake, three-time World Cup winner of street magic.

We just priced up the whole four day trip with hotels, flights, shuttles and festival tickets for less than £300 and we don't think you will get a better value festival than that, anywhere.
