THE WAIT IS OVER! ICONIC ‘TROOPER EDDIE’ comes to Iron Maiden’s Legacy Of The Beast Mobile game ahead of their 2018 European Tour.
Mobile games publisher, Nodding Frog and global rock legends Iron Maiden are proud to announce the arrival of seminal character, ‘Trooper Eddie’ to their award-winning Legacy Of The Beast mobile game.
Modelled on the character from the song, ‘The Trooper’ from 1983’s Piece of Mind album his arrival in the game emphasises the recent announcement that Maiden’s 2018 European Tour is named Legacy Of The Beast and takes inspiration from the mobile game and spin off comic book.
Comments Iron Maiden Manager, Rod Smallwood, “For this tour we decided to base the theme around the 'Legacy Of The Beast' name, which suits our purposes perfectly by giving us scope to play a lot of 80’s favourites and to get creative and have some fun, especially with Eddie! The game has always paid tribute to the recording and touring plans of the band with the timing, characters, worlds and even the launch of the PVP arena all having relevance to what the band were up to at any one time. With ‘The Trooper’ a mainstay of our touring set list for many years now I know our fans will finally love using ‘Trooper Eddie’ in the game. He looks incredible and his special ability is one of the wildest things we have seen in the game so far.”
The Trooper has finally been fully realised within Legacy Of The Beast and true to the lore of the doomed soldiers charging against all odds, he brings a series of team enhancing skills and abilities to make him and his brigade an unstoppable force on the battlefield…

Metal United World Wide (MUWW) is a project which brings together metal bands, fans, show organisers, media and other supporters for one big event. The idea is to have metal shows all over the world on the same date identified by the same banner. Everybody can be part and shows are individually organized. The aim is to create a world wide feeling of community as well as attract attention to the performing bands who are predominantly underground bands.
A community project needs community support. The project does not charge participation fees but relies on the support of the metal community. Around 20 show organisers have already agreed to put on a show on 5 May 2018 so far and there are a number of others interested. Below this text and at our website is the updated overview: www.metal-united-world-wide.com
Are you a band, show organiser, media representative or other metal institution? Do you already have a show or tour on that date? Do think this is a great project and you would like to get on board? Contact firstname.lastname@example.org. Everybody is welcome and can join. After all, this is Metal UNITED World Wide!!! \m/
