The New Iron Maiden Video Game Looks Pretty Damn Cool



Iron Maiden have long toyed with video games. Their game-themed “Speed of Light” video came with its own 8-bit game, and hey, let’s not forget 1999’s Ed Hunter. 

But now the band has released a trailer for their new game, and it’s a huge, cinematic production. Sadly, there’s no actual gameplay footage in the trailer, but if the game itself is anywhere near as cool as the trailer, it’s going to be rad as Hell.

The game, Iron Maiden: Legacy of the Beast, is a free-to-play RPG that casts the player as Eddie, Maiden’s psychotic zombie mascot. The story takes place throughout various moments in the history of both mankind and the band itself, pitting Eddie against a series of characters from Maiden’s artwork and songs and giving him all manner of weapons and powers derived from the band’s music and history (is it simple-minded of me to be really excited for the Killers hatchet?). Derek Riggs’ fin-eared Satan appears to be the final boss. So basically, it’s a video game of every metalhead’s wettest dreams. I mean, look at that fucking artwork.

Check out the trailer below. Iron Maiden: Legacy of the Beast comes out later this year for Android and iOS. Go here for up-to-date information on the game’s release.
