Avenged Sevenfold recently announced that their mobile video game Hail To The King: Deathbat is almost finished and will probably be out this summer, once testing is complete.
?We are trying to do something that hasn?t been really done before.We?re trying to compact basically a mini console game and stick it in mobile. And we?re not sure if that audience even exists yet for something like that.? A7X?s frontman M. Shadows told TechRadar.
Shadows also revealed that they will include an avatar of their former drummer, Jimmy ?The Rev? Sullivan, who died from an accidental overdose in 2009.
With the blessings of The Rev?s parents, they have included him in the game. He?s an unlockable character, and players can use him as comrade to aide them thru levels.
At first, players might associate Deathbat?s visual style with the ever popular Diablo series, but Shadows points out that the game intends to stand on its own by interlocking popular genres together to form something unique.
Lead guitarist Synyster Gates told The Pulse Radio that the time needed to develop the much-awaited game is going to be really worth it. ?I mean, we?ve been spending the last two, two-and-a-half years developing this thing, and it?s turning out outrageously, unbelievably perfect in every single way. But it?s taken a long time. So we?re really coming close to finishing, y?know, everything on our end, and then it goes into testing and stuff like that. But yeah, definitely it’s really impressive.?
Each member has its own custom power or weapon. It includes a ?Hell Sword? which rains blood on people for Johnny Christ (bassist), a demonic magic power for Synyster Gates, a double-edged sword for Arin Ileja (drummer) and a ?Shadow Sight? for M. Shadows.
Almost every gamers are aware that Avenged Sevenfold is no stranger to video games. Various songs of the band are featured in Call of Duty, and the most recent was Call of Duty: Black Ops 2?s official soundtrack, Carry On.
Hail To The King: Deathbat is expected to be out this summer, although the exact release date has yet to be announced.
