Five Finger Death Punch has announced a collaboration with Iron Maiden free-to-play mobile game “Legacy Of The Beast”.
The collaboration concerns an event, which will last a week, in a dungeon called “Afterlife”, such as the upcoming album of Five Finger Death Punch due out on August 19th.
Knucklehead, the mascot of 5FDP, will therefore be present in the game and will accompany players through missions and objectives.
Five Finger Death Punch guitarist Zoltan Bathory said: “You know, it’s an unexpected and impossible dream for me and my band that my childhood heroes — in this moment in life — are being let into the beautiful landscape of the game. To me, Iron Maiden was the band that got me into heavy metal and slung me onto the path of my musical journey. Iron Maiden created a metal community when we were growing up — it was a brotherhood — and with this game, they’re doing it again because they’re bringing together all of these bands, and their mascots and it has this feeling of community. To me, that was very important about what got me interested in the genre in the first place.”
