Mobile gamers that find themselves craving a little more rock in their gaming may be in luck. Hard rockers Avenged Sevenfold have announced today that they are releasing a new action adventure role-playing game titled Hail to the King: Deathbat.

The game is a 3rd person dungeon crawler that details the origin of the bands mascot, the Deathbat. Along the way, the game pits the player against massive levels, undead minions, and "unforgiving bosses."

  • Features an original score, written by Avenged Sevenfold.
  • No must-purchase upgrades; price of game includes everything necessary to beat the game.
  • 7 new paintings by artist Cam Rackam
  • 14 pieces of never-before-seen artwork intended for use in earlier albums.
  • Jimmy "The Rev" Sullivan plays an integral part in the storyline and can be unlocked.
  • Rich, immersive storyline that will appeal to gamers and fans of the band alike.
  • Interact with non-playable characters to learn about and solve the mysteries of the island.
  • Unlock new weapons and magical abilities to defeat enemy hoards and difficult bosses.
  • 10-12 hours of gameplay.
