Earlier today (July 11), the heavy metal band Avenged Sevenfold shared on their Facebook page a post originally made by the Dungeon Hunter Facebook page. The post involved a 360° picture that showed the Dungeon Hunter logo and when viewed on a smart device (smartphone or tablet), the picture can be rotated 180° to see Avenged Sevenfold’s Deathbat logo.
The description for the image reads, “Something is coming — Can you guess what it is? #StayTuned #Tomorrow.” It would appear that Avenged Sevenfold and Gameloft, the developer behind the Dungeon Hunter series, are working together in some way.
This wouldn’t be the first time Avenged Sevenfold has entered the video gaming world. The band has been known to write original pieces for the Call of Duty: Black Ops series, even going as far as to actually appear in Call of Duty: Black Ops II to perform the song “Carry On,” which they wrote for the game.
In 2014, Avenged Sevenfold even made their own game with the help of Subscience Studios called Hail to the King: Deathbat. The game is a hack ‘n’ slash dungeon crawler for PC and mobile devices that features lots of music by Avenged Sevenfold, both previously established songs and tracks written specifically for the game. Since the game’s release, members of the band have stated that they are interested in making more games, should there be demand for it.
Coincidentally (or maybe not-so-coincidentally), Dungeon Hunter is also a hack ‘n’ slash dungeon crawler for mobile devices. Maybe Hail to the King: Deathbat is getting a sequel. The first game ended on a cliffhanger that needs some resolution. Maybe Avenged Sevenfold is just providing music for a Dungeon Hunter game. Well, I guess we’ll find out #Tomorrow.
