Iron Maiden have joined forces with Avenged Sevenfold for a new collaboration inside their “Legacy Of The Beast” game. The “Nightmare Carnival” dungeon features “deathbats” from Avenged Sevenfold’s “Deathbats Club”.

A press release offered more details:

“Earlier this year, the Deathbats Club held an exclusive contest on the official Deathbats Club Discord channel for members of the DBC to have their bat featured in Iron Maiden’s Legacy of the Beast free-to-play mobile game. 25 semi-finalist were chosen but only 3 were turned into official playable characters in the game – all will be revealed at the Carnival ….

Ringmaster Eddie is in trouble! The Dark Metal Carnival was set to open soon and now a mysterious figure and his host of deadly and mischievous skulls known as the Deathbats have taken over the fairgrounds! Players will have 3 different opportunities to win these deathbats and add them to their team roster!”

“Players can earn the Deathbats characters for FREE from our newest login calendar starting Tuesday, October 18th. Players will have 3 opportunities to acquire the Deathbats: Earn the Sentinel Deathbat by completing 1 playthrough of the dungeon, and the Assassin Deathbat by battling in the dungeon 10 times. The 3rd Deathbat is earned for free from our newest login calendar! Log in any 7 days between October 18th and November 17th to earn awesome rewards including the Magus Deathbat on the 7th day!’”

Avenged Sevenfold’s M. Shadows commented:

“It’s important to us to continue to bring exclusive unique opportunities to our Deathbats Club members, so when Iron Maiden and Navigator Games reached out, we were stoked to work with them on a unique concept for Legacy of the Beast. I loved seeing our fans stoked on the chance to have their custom Deathbat NFT being selected out of 10,000 and then brought to life in Iron Maiden’s game, what a cool experience.”

Navigator Games CEO Will Moore added:

“This year we have had an incredible caliber of in-game collaborations and we wanted to create something really special for Halloween. So we invited M.Shadows to develop the concept with us, and the result was ‘The Nightmare Carnival’! This collab delivers a whole new level of innovation as Eddie battles with three enemies inspired by Avenged Sevenfold’s Deathbats.”

Iron Maiden Announce “Legacy Of The Beast” In-Game Collaboration With Within Temptation

Iron Maiden have joined forces with Within Temptation for a new collaboration inside their “Legacy Of The Beast” game. A Within Temptation-inspired character called “Genesis” will appear in the mobile game as part of a dungeon event that was launched today (September 19).

A press release offered more details:

“This week-long event will take fans and players on a journey with ‘Different World‘ Eddie and Genesis, who’s now been woven into the ‘Legacy of the Beast‘ lore, as mother of the Different World.”

Within Temptation’s Sharon den Adel commented:

“If I listen to Iron Maiden, I feel like I’m on an adventure and I’m traveling through time. Eddie is my tour guide and with Eddie and Genesis teaming up.. That’s the best thing ever! Aren’t they a cute couple?! Genesis, for us, is not only a symbol of an evolution of life, but also a symbol for the wars within the mind and the wars with the outside world. We think it’s so cool that she previously was only a piece of artwork for us. She was an inspiration for several things we were doing, but now coming to life in this game: it’s a surreal thing to see.. It’s a whole new level! It turned out so awesome, so check it out!”

To me, that was very important about what got me interested in the genre in the first place.”
