Avenged Sevenfold are celebrating today, as their new mobile game Hail to the King: Deathbat has launched on iOS and via Google Play for Android.
Singer M. Shadows oversaw the production and design of the game, and said : “After over 2 years in development, we are proud to present you with Hail to the King: Deathbat! After watching all of the members of this band play mobile games on tour over the years we decided to create one of our own. A game for our fans who love games as well. We decided to create this adventure with a nod to our favorite games growing up. No hand holding here, no fluff, just a hard, bad ass game that lets you discover the story of the Deathbat. How many of you out there can beat this game? Only time will tell. We are excited to share this story with you now.”
The game sees players battling through seven landscapes that have been inspired by the band’s discography, interacting with other characters to uncover more of the game’s mythos. Classic Avenged Sevenfold tracks feature, along with a new and original score composed by the band, apparently in the tradition of 8-bit video games such as Castlevania.
Hail to the King: Deathbat is available now for $4.99 on the App Store and via Google Play, and you can check out a trailer for the game below.
