18 Aug IRON MAIDEN Teams Up with Multi-Platinum Hard Rock FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH For ‘Legacy Of The Beast’ In-Game Event
IRON MAIDEN‘s “Legacy Of The Beast” free-to-play mobile game has announced a major in-game collaboration with FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH.
“Iron Maiden: Legacy Of The Beast” needed a character that would fit perfectly into a story with Magma Beast Eddie, a scheming denizen of Hell itself, born of fire and darkness. This latest Eddie was released as a special edition of Beast Eddie, uniquely created for “Legacy Of The Beast” during MAIDEN‘s 2019 leg of the tour and will herald MAIDEN‘s return to the Americas for 29 shows on August 27 in Curitiba, Brazil and concluding in Tampa, Florida two months later on October 27.
This exciting collaboration is a dungeon event called “Afterlife” inspired by FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH‘s forthcoming ninth studio album (out August 19) and Knucklehead, FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH‘s mascot featured on many of the band’s album covers.
The week-long event will take fans and players on a journey with Magma Beast Eddie and Knucklehead, a fierce warrior and a brutally efficient combatant who also guards the gate to Purgatory.
