London, UK – Mobile games publisher, Nodding Frog and global rock legends IRON MAIDEN are proud to announce the arrival of Brave New World dungeons to their award-winning mobile game Legacy of the Beast. Inspired by the band’s seminal reformation album, Brave New World is an epic new gameplay experience for fans of both the band and the game. Set in a future dystopian world, players will battle their way through an invasion of alien lifeforms on route to confront a massive World boss unlike anything else yet seen in the game. This new feature is heavily influenced by the band’s iconic album art, originally released in 2000, when Bruce Dickinson & Adrian Smith re-joined. Music from the title track accompanies each game play experience in the dungeons and augments four other songs from the album that appear elsewhere in the game, with Brave New World cover star, aptly named ‘Storm Eddie’, also appearing in the game as a playable assassin class character.
Having just reached a one-year anniversary and with 100M battles fought to date, Legacy of the Beast is a definitive experience in the mobile RPG space – taking players on an unparalleled, epic, ever-expanding, gaming journey via their smartphones & tablets.
Iron Maiden Manager Rod Smallwood says,
“This latest feature, focused around our Brave New World album, is a huge addition to the game in terms of both art and audio. With many more exciting innovations in the pipeline, we plan to keep Legacy evolving, totally unique and, most of all, fun for our legion of players and fans.”
The unprecedented integration of Iron Maiden’s creative output has seen the game and its characters featured on the side of Maiden’s 2016 customized 747, on bottle tops of their Trooper beer, on the iconic black t-shirts, shown in cinematic trailers at live shows and now in a comic book of the same name – a synthesis that continues to push boundaries in both the digital and physical space.
Players of the game can look forward to many more significant new features and characters to collect over the coming months, including ‘Trooper Eddie’, Social Chat and the ‘Night City’ game world and cast – inspired by Maiden’s early music catalog and fledgling East London roots.
