On the eve of their Book Of Souls European tour, which kicks off in Antwerp on Saturday night, Iron Maiden have launched a synergistic player-vs-player battle arena for their mobile game, 'Legacy Of The Beast'.

The game offers players a unique way to interact with the Maiden's real world activities by introducing not only a replica of one of the tour stage productions, but also the debut of 'The Book Of Souls' Shaman Eddie into the game, in his Mayan themed incarnation as featured on Maiden's most recent studio album. Other characters from 'The Book Of Souls' are set to follow.

Iron Maiden Manager Rod Smallwood says:

"With 'Legacy Of The Beast' we wanted to create something that appealed both to fans of Maiden music and gamers alike, wherever they are in the world, and I think we are well on our way to accomplishing that.

"The game has kept true to the band's history and development not only through their music but with Eddie too. This latest feature focussed around our current tour is only the start of many new and exciting innovations we have planned to keep 'Legacy' evolving and becoming even more addictive!"

Llexi Leon, Interactive Creative Director of Phantom Music Management adds:

"The towering Mayan set piece of 'The Book Of Souls' world tour presented an ideal opportunity to expand the game and create a virtual event space to complement the band's live show – whether you're seeing Iron Maiden on the road or playing 'Legacy Of The Beast' on your mobile, we've crafted a gaming experience that explores the Mayan world of 'The Book Of Souls' record and marks the first of many timed in-game events that will enrich the band's touring activity, engaging fans old and new across the globe in a way never before possible."

The unprecedented integration of Iron Maiden's creative output has seen the game and its characters featured on the side of Maiden's own 747, on bottle tops of their Trooper beer, on the iconic black t-shirts and shown in cinematic trailers at live shows – a synthesis that continues to push boundaries in both the digital and physical space.

Players of the game can look forward to many more significant new features and characters to collect over the coming months, including The Clairvoyant and Trooper Eddie, Social Chat and the Night City game world and cast - inspired by Maiden's early music catalogue and distinct East London upbringing.

Iron Maiden: Legacy of the Beast, is available now for free on Apple's App Store and GooglePlay.

MONSTERS OF ROCK IN FULL FLIGHT SURE TO BECOME FUTURE COLLECTOR'S ITEM

monsters of rock

Monsters Of Rock In Full Flight is strictly limited to 300 worldwide and is available from 30th November but those ordering before 31st October will have their name published within a dedicated page in the book.

It's a deluxe 128 page hardback book in a metal flight case with a narrative by Jerry Bloom.

When promoter Paul Loasby put on the first Monsters Of Rock Festival in 1980 he could probably never have imagined it would become an annual event that would endure for so many years.

Featuring bands from the UK, Germany, Canada and USA, Loasby chose to stage the event at the Donington race circuit in the middle of England and it would prove to be a defining moment for many of the bands on the bill.

Not least for headliners Rainbow as it was the their last ever show to feature drum legend Cozy Powell. As it would happen it turned out to be the last for vocalist Graham Bonnet as well. For many of the other bands on the bill such as Scorpions, Judas Priest and Saxon, they were all on the ascendancy and would soon go on to even greater success.

Now in celebration of this first ever Monsters Of Rock Festival comes this hardback book full of glorious photos of the bands that took to the stage for that inaugural event including back stage shots. Most of these shots have not been published before which add to the uniqueness of this deluxe 128-page book which is packaged in its own flight case.

Also included are stories surrounding the event with tales and recollections from those who were there, including artists and fans alike. Each book will be signed by the author. The 300 will sell fast and definitely go on to become collector's items so order yours now right here to avoid disappointment.
