Slated to be unleashed in the App Store on October 16, Hail to the King: Deathbat is the official video game of American heavy metal group, Avenged Sevenfold.

Developed in collaboration with the musicians of Avenged Sevenfold, Hail to the King: Deathbat is a dark fantasy-themed action adventure that casts players as demonic versions of the band members including vocalist M. Shadows, rhythm guitarist Zacky Vengeance, lead guitarist Synyster Gates, bassist Johnny Christ, drummer Arin Ilejay as well as the late Jimmy “The Rev” Sullivan.

Blabbermouth noted in a new article that each of Avenged Sevenfold’s in-game characters have their own unique special powers and weapons.

“M. Shadows said that each band member has his own custom weapon or power,” Blabbermouth stated, “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.”

The game also features environments and missions based on Avenged Sevenfold’s discography as well as brand new music specifically created for the game.
