Iron Maiden’s ‘Legacy Of The Beast’ video game has added Disturbed mascot, ‘The Guy’, into the game’s digital world. ‘The Guy’ will be joining Iron Maiden‘s ‘Eddie’ as part of the in-game event ‘Disturbing Sciences’. That event drew inspiration from the cover art from Iron Maiden’s Somewhere In Time album and Disturbed’s Dark Messiah comic book series.
The press release reads:
‘In this new storyline, Cyborg Eddie and The Guy have been summoned through time and space to the Polvo Valley, a small town transformed into a hyper-sanitized, machine-driven industrial city, where Eddie and The Guy are dead-set on punishing the city’s corporate overlord – Brian Kek and confronting the CEO at Kek Tower before discovering the depth of his hubris.’
David Draiman, frontman for Disturbed, commented:
“Myself and the guys from Disturbed are humbled to be included in the Legacy of the Beast game. We feel that ‘The Guy’ is a worthy addition to the saga and we’re very happy to be a part of it … when we first saw the first concept pieces of how he would be integrated into the game it was thrilling for all of us, it’s still kind of surreal!
I love that our Dark Messiah storyline from the Disturbed comic book series, from the graphic novel, is being integrated into the video game series, I think they go hand and hand with one another. I love more people having the opportunity to play as ‘The Guy’… and battle the forces out there that deserve to have their asses handed to them.”
The in game event began February 16th.
