Iron Maiden Is Getting The Free-To-Play Mobile RPG Treatment

Zero points for guessing who’s behind the soundtrack.

The sub-title is Legacy of the Beast, and it’s a free-to-play mobile RPG where you “battle as Eddie in his many guises across worlds inspired by the rich lore and music of Iron Maiden”.

It almost sounds like the beginnings of Metalocaplyse’s domination of global finances. Clash of Iron Maiden Clans? Anyway, the game comes with a “powerful soundtrack” that features songs from the entirety of Iron Maiden’s career. There’s also “previously unheard live recordings adapted for the game by engineer Tony Newton under the close scrutiny of Steve Harris”.

Harris is the primary songwriter, bassist and founder of Iron Maiden. This isn’t some two-bit knock off project. Iron Maiden’s taking this seriously. Or at least the founder is.

The game could still be rubbish, mind you. But chances are the soundtrack won’t be (if you like metal). The game will be released for iOS and Android during our winter and is being developed and published by Roadhouse Interactive, 50cc Games and Nodding Frog, according to the press material and information available on the website.
