Iron Maiden has announced an in-game collaboration with pioneering purveyors of viking metal in Amon Amarth.

The ‘Viking Invasion’ is a month long event that will add another layer in the expansive digital universe of Maiden’s ultra successful free-to-play mobile video game, ‘Legacy Of The Beast’. The collaboration bridges themes from Iron Maiden’s 1982 anthem ‘Invaders’ from ‘The Number of the Beast’ album fused with narrative cues from Amon Amarth’s most recent recoded effort, ‘The Berserker’.

“Legacy of the Beast was built on a foundation of Iron Maiden songs, art and history, but has also always been about introducing and developing creative ideas that extended beyond Maiden,” band Manager Rod Smallwood explains, “and, just as we’ve always invited bands out to tour with us, we are delighted to invite some friends to become part of our game and to provide another dimension to the fun, dexterity and excitement of it.”

Amon Amarth’s lead vocalist & Viking-in-chief Johan Hegg explains, “To have our own character in the Iron Maiden: Legacy of the Beast game is just insanely cool! & such an honor. We hope everyone will enjoy our humble contribution to this awesome game!”

The plot line introduces the lone Beserker who is out for revenge after a slew of violent attacks on his village and the decimation of his family. The Berserker links with Eddie, Iron Maiden’s iconic mascot, who leads Beserker along with Norse Goddess, Freya into battle taking up arms against enemies to gain their vengeance for the in the name of Berserker’s family and slaughtered village.

Eddie plays in integral role in the Legacy of the Beast game. The character synonymous with Iron Maiden serves as the protagonist of the RPG in which he travels through time into different worlds and immersive 3D universes. In his various forms, Eddie takes on evil with a wide array of powers that are unique to each iteration. Throughout the successful run of the game, the universe has expanded to include 20 dungeons and 6 unique Worlds, all drawn from Maiden’s catalog including, The Beast’s Hell, Powerslave’s Ancient Egypt, AMOLAD’s World War II to The Final Frontier of the far future, and hundreds of characters including 90 Eddies all derived from classic Maiden album and single covers.
