Hail to the King: Deathbat Characters to Include The Rev and Special Powers

Avenged Sevenfold have recently announced that they will be releasing a mobile game called Hail to the King: Deathbat during the summer. The game is being developed by Subscience Studios. You can read more about the game here

Vocalist M. Shadows talked about how the game came to be, and the abilities of each of their characters. They also incorporate their late drummer The Rev into the game. For those who are unaware, The Rev passed away in 2010. Putting him in the game is going to make a lot of A7X (Avenged Sevenfold) fans very happy. 

Well, for instance, Arin [Ilejay, drums] really wanted a blade in each hand with a boomerang effect so that they would come back to him. We couldn’t do that, so we compromised and gave him a double-sided sword. Zacky [Vengeance,guitar] wanted a baseball bat—he throws rocks at people, and mashes them with a bat. Synyster Gates [guitar] has a little demon that runs around with him—and when you use his magic powers, you hear one of his dive-bombs, which he recorded specially for it. Johnny [Christ, bass] has the ‘Hell Sword,’ which rains blood on people, and I have ‘Shadows Sight,’ which is like a black plume of smoke that you inhale in your lungs. We all did stupid voiceovers for it when we were a little inebriated. [Laughs] Also, 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.
— M. Shadows, Lead Singer

The game follows the band’s Deathbat mascot as he reclaims the underworld from the evil Dark Andronikos. We couldn't be more excited to play this game. I have been a huge fan of Avenged Sevenfold for years now. I will be doing a review of the game once it drops, so make sure you check that out.
