02 Mar Battle to save the Isle of Avalon
Iron Maiden: Legacy of the Beast Launches new in-game region: ISLE OF AVALON
The wait is over! Mobile games publisher, Nodding Frog and global rock legends IRON MAIDEN are proud to announce the arrival of the new in-game region ISLE OF AVALON to their award-winning Legacy of the Beast mobile game.
Modeled after the lyrics from the song, ‘Isle of Avalon’ from 2010’s ‘The Final Frontier’ album. The story is centered on the Isle of Avalon, which houses humanity’s fallen and eternal souls. It acts as a direct connection between the realm of humanity, and the realm of the gods. Eddie and The Alchemist head to Avalon to warn them of Lucifer’s attack, but will they be able to stop his plans for vengeance in time?
The Isle of Avalon content will be released in 3 separate parts, and each release will cover the distinct areas that make up Avalon; the misty plains, the castle city/mystic ruins, and the palace of angels. These areas will bring unique environments and enemies for players to face in each release, as well as one Act of the overarching Avalon story, leading off from the cliff-hanger ending of the Awakening story.
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 across a spectacularly diverse array of worlds by traveling through time 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.
