Avenged Sevenfold Reveal Plans for New Game + Animated Series
It’s going to be an outstanding fall for Avenged Sevenfold fans. Not only is the band’s ‘Hail to the King’ coming out at the end of this month and all but guaranteed to dominate the rest of the year, but the group has two more projects on the horizon.
Frontman M. Shadows revealed in a new posting that Avenged Sevenfold is finalizing the details on both a new video game as well as an animated ‘Hail to the King’ series. In his new posting, the singer writes:
I wanted to start off by thanking those of you who came out to the 3 shows we did this weekend. We had a great time getting out of the studio and preparing for our ‘Hail to the King’ album release. We are excited about the 27th and we hope you all are as well.
The reason I’m writing this is to shed some light on a few things we will be doing this fall besides touring and promoting ‘Hail to the King.’ First I would like to let you all know that for the past 18 months we have been writing and developing an IOS / Android based mobile Avenged Sevenfold game.
Without revealing too much I will just say that it is an action adventure game. It has been written and developed by the band and with our friends in Subscience Studios. It’s turning out awesome. We can’t wait to show you more when it’s ready.
What we can show you though is a trailer for the new ‘Hail to the King’ animated series that we and our friends at Machinima have been working on. The game and the series will go hand in hand with each other. We hope you enjoy them both because I know we have had a great time developing them.
– M. Shadows.
The trailer for the ‘Hail to the King’ animated series can be seen above, and it will incorporate music from their album of the same name. As shown in the trailer, the story looks to include three beings with levitation powers, a supreme warrior and a smiling evil demon with a pair of scantily clad beauties. How this all ties together remains to be seen, but fans will find out this fall.
The series will air at www.youtube.com/HappyHour this fall, and fans can subscribe at this location. Stay tuned for more information on both the ‘Hail to the King’ animated series and the band’s IOS / Android-based game.
In the interim, be sure to pick up the ‘Hail to the King’ album Aug. 27 and look for Avenged Sevenfold on tour this fall. Their full itinerary can be seen by clicking the button below.
