Hail to the King: Deathbat, a mobile dungeon crawler featuring the discography and artwork of American metal band Avenged Sevenfold, will launch in early 2014, it was announced today.
The game, announced this summer, features the band's discography and artwork throughout its various stages. It is a companion experience for the Hail to the King Machinima series.
"We've been fans of games since we were kids, and we thought it would be fun to create one of our own inspired by our favorites," Avenged Sevenfold singer M. Shadows said. "There are so many cool and innovative indie games being developed today, and we realized we could design and build the kind of game we'd love to play on our own. It is coming together amazingly well, and we can’t wait to share it."
Various Avenged Sevenfold songs are featured in Call of Duty: Black Ops titles, most recently with "Carry On" in Call of Duty: Black Ops II. Check out a gameplay trailer for Hail to the King: Deathbat right here.
