Amon Amarth Invade Iron Maiden’s “Legacy Of The Beast” Mobile Game

Amon Amarth have invaded Iron Maiden’s “Legacy Of The Beast” mobile game as part of a new in-game event called “Viking Invasion.” The event kicked off today (April 13) and it will run for one month.

A press release offered more details:

“Entitled the “Viking Invasion”, the month-long event takes its broad themes from Iron Maiden‘s song, “Invaders“, from 1982’s The Number of the Beast album. Taking a page out of its own (comic) book, Legacy of the Beast created a new character and storyline borrowing from Amon Amarth‘s latest album, The Berserker.

After a spate of murderous attacks on his village, a lone Berserker vows revenge on the culprits who slaughtered his family. No stranger to battle, retribution or revenge, Eddie, Iron Maiden’s infamous mascot, leads not only the Berserker but also Norse Goddess, Freya, into battle against unrelenting waves of enemies to seek vengeance for the Berserker’s fallen kin. Are these random attacks, or is something more sinister afoot?

Find out when you meet The Berserker in the Viking Invasion Dungeon launching April 13th, 2021 at 5pm PT in Iron Maiden: Legacy of the Beast mobile game.

“Legacy of the Beast was built on a foundation of Iron Maiden songs, art and history, but has also always been about introducing and developing creative ideas that extended beyond Maiden,” band Manager Rod Smallwood comments, “and, just as we’ve always invited bands out to tour with us, we are delighted to invite some friends to become part of our game and to provide another dimension to the fun, dexterity and excitement of it.”

In Iron Maiden: Legacy of the Beast, metal and RPG gaming fans take on the role of the band’s iconic mascot, Eddie, who travels through time, across a spectacularly diverse array of worlds 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.

Amon Amarth‘s lead vocalist & Viking-in-chief Johan Hegg explains, “To have our own character in the Iron Maiden: Legacy of the Beast game is just insanely cool! And such an honor. We hope everyone will enjoy our humble contribution to this awesome game!”

Players can earn the Berserker character for free From April 13th – May 12th, 2021.”
