(Classic Rock) Iron Maiden are to launch their own video game called Legacy Of The Beast this summer. The metal giants have teamed up with games developers Roadhouse Interactive and 50cc Games on the project, which is a described as an RPG (role-playing game) for iOS and Android.

Vancouver-based Roadhouse Interactive worked with Maiden's management firm Phantom Music Management and were given wide access to the band's vaults while developing the game - which they say is "an action-packed, free-to-play RPG steeped in Iron Maiden mythology."

Roadhouse CEO James Hursthouse says: "As a lifelong fan, I have always thought that Maiden's music, lyrics and cast of characters would provide the perfect basis for a deep RPG experience. With this game we're creating an outstanding RPG that will appeal to all mobile gamers, including those discovering Maiden for the first time."

Players take on the role of the band's iconic mascot, Eddie, in his many forms - each with unique abilities. Players explore new worlds, travel through time, and battle a cast of characters drawn from the catalogue of Maiden's albums and art. Read more here.
