“Dungeon Hunter 5”, the latest episode of Gameloft‘s successful hack-and-slash series, has announced a partnership with Universal Music Group and multi-platinum-selling rock band AVENGED SEVENFOLD. The game will offer its players an exciting experience around the universe of the band, with a special bat-themed dungeon and featured in-game assets. The collaboration will also grant fans an exclusive access to “Dose”, a brand-new song from AVENGED SEVENFOLD.
For two weeks, players will be able to enter a thematic dungeon where they will have to part with hordes of undead minions and bewitched demons before the final confrontation against a terrific new boss, inspired by the band’s visual identity and the branding of their critically acclaimed new album, “The Stage”.
In addition, the soundtrack of this special level will be a new song from the band, exclusively broadcasted in “Dungeon Hunter 5” before its worldwide streaming release on July 14.
A snippet of “Dose” can be heard in the “Dungeon Hunter 5” trailer below.
Following “Malagueña Salerosa” and “Retrovertigo”, “Dose” is the third in a series of new tracks being released by AVENGED SEVENFOLD over the course of the coming months.
First displayed on the boss of the dungeon, the bat-themed equipment will also be available for a limited time: an incredible skeleton armor, a guitar-shaped giant sword, and a back shield adorned with AVENGED SEVENFOLD‘s logo.
AVENGED SEVENFOLD frontman M. Shadows recently confirmed to the Razor 94.7 radio station that the bad will embark on a full North American headlining tour in January and February 2018. The trek, which will be announced after the completion of AVENGED‘s current stadium run as the support act for METALLICA, was originally “supposed to happen this summer until we got that call from METALLICA, so we decided to put it on hold,” the singer explained.
AVENGED SEVENFOLD is touring in support of its seventh album, “The Stage”, which was released at the end of October with almost no promotion beforehand.
