Powerwolf Join Iron Maiden’s ‘Legacy of the Beast’ Game With Limited-Time Character

As the latest Legacy of the Beast in-game collaboration, Iron Maiden have partnered with German power metal group Powerwolf to introduce a new character for a limited-time.

In Maiden’s mobile game, users select their most powerful team, each character being of various class types and equipped with stat-boosting talismans, to pit against a group of foes in turn-based RPG combat. The range of playable characters is ever-expanding and previous band collabs have roped Amon Amarth, Lacuna Coil, Ghost and Disturbed into Eddie’s world.

Now, in a limited-time event dubbed ‘Macht Der Wölf’ (German for ‘Power of the Wolf’), the Vârcolac character, plucked from the storyline of Powerwolf’s latest album, Call of the Wild, will be unlockable from April 11 at 8PM ET through May 11 at 8PM ET. Players can earn the free character by logging in for a total of seven days to receive Vârcolac and bring the new figure into battle.

Starring in Legacy of the Beast is an impressive cherry-topper for Powerwolf, who had already secured an opening slot for Iron Maiden at two German shows this year.
