Starting this summer, players can get fully immersed in the world of heavy metal sensation, Iron Maiden.
It has come to light that starting in the summer of 2016, Iron Maiden: Legacy of the Beast will be available on mobile devices. Iron Maiden: Legacy of the Beast is a mobile RPG that will feature Eddie, the mascot for Iron Maiden, as a playable character and as Iron Maiden states, be an “action-packed, free-to-play RPG steeped in Iron Maiden mythology.”
The Iron Maiden mythology will actually lend itself well to a RPG. They have built a world transportable to the RPG genre. I can only imagine what would happen if other bands without this sense of mythology attempted to follow in these footsteps. Backstreet Boys the RPG, it would involve a haunted mansion perhaps?
Iron Maiden: Legacy of the Beast is being developed by Roadhouse Interactive, best known for their mobile adaption of Warhammer with Warhammer 40,000: Carnage.
