A Megadeth Video Game Is Coming, Dave Mustaine Says

Rock on.

26 Comments

Following in the footsteps of bands like Iron Maiden and Avenged Sevenfold, the American metal band Megadeth is making its own video game, apparently.

Frontman Dave Mustaine appeared at the New York Stock Exchange recently and spoke about Megadeth's wine and beer businesses ventures--and also video games. "I'm working on a video game that encompasses a lot of the band's history and a lot of little riffs that we've never used before, stuff like that," Mustaine explained (via Loudwire).

That's all Mustaine had to say about the Megadeth video game. So we don't know what yet what form the game will take or what platforms it will be released on. His comment about the game containing previously unheard riffs is a pretty nice treat for fans.

Mustaine also said in the interview that Megadeth is preparing for its next tour, and is due to release one more record under its current contract. "I don't see the end in sight for us, because the band's getting along really well right now, and we're playing great."

Avenged Sevenfold's video game, Hail to the King: Deathbat, features seven areas inspired by the band's discography and artwork. It also uses some of the band's best-known songs, as well as new ones that Avenged Sevenfold wrote for the game.

We'll report back with more details on Megadeth's video game in the time ahead.

@guardian2066: I wouldn't get too hyped. They only use YouTube's player when it's something copyrighted that they can't copy and play on their own player.

Where were you when you heard "the riff" in The Conjuring? I was driving home from Atlanta and got chills the first time I heard it.

I remember when Microsoft brought Megadeth on board to help promote the first Gears of War. They Wrote a Song Called Gears of War. Megadeth>Metallica.

@gaminsincepong: Oldest, "deadest" beef... (also a lifelong Megadeth > Metallica, but still...)

Lars himself put it to bed.

Read the liner notes from the Peace Sells anniversary remaster. Very well written.

Thought Daveyboy got all holier-than-thou sober for the last few decades... That whole "no moshing while I'm playing guitar" whiny business. Didn't bother with them after ~1992; totally different.

No one can ever compete with Kiss' 2000 game Psycho Circus: The Nightmare Child. But the author can only think back on things that existed when they were alive.

@khanwashere: Gene's 2017 trademark antics have retroactively, permanently scrubbed all existence of KISS and their works.
