AVENGED SEVENFOLD's 'Hail To The King: Deathbat' Mobile Video Game Gets A Release Date

AVENGED SEVENFOLD's Hail To The King: Deathbat mobile video game will be released on October 16. It will be available via the App Store and on Google Play.

A new trailer for the game is available below.

AVENGED SEVENFOLD singer M. Shadows revealed to Revolver magazine that Hail To The King: Deathbat will include an avatar of late drummer, Jimmy "The Rev" Sullivan. Shadows explained, "With the blessing of his parents, we put The Rev in the game. Once you unlock his character, you can use him as your comrade to help you through the levels."

Guitarist Synyster Gates told The Pulse Of Radio that the extended time needed to develop the long-awaited game will be 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," he said. "But it's taken a long time. So we're really coming close with finishing, you know, everything on our end, and then it goes into testing and stuff like that. But yeah, it's definitely really impressive."

M. Shadows said that each band member has his own custom weapon or power, including a double-edged sword for drummer Arin Ilejay, a demon with magic powers for Synyster Gates, a "Hell Sword" which rains blood on people for bassist Johnny Christ and "Shadow Sight" for Shadows himself.

AVENGED SEVENFOLD and KORN co-headlined this year's Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival.

AVENGED SEVENFOLD was touring in support of its 2013 album, "Hail To The King", which debuted at No. 1 last year on the Billboard album chart.
