Iron Maiden launch Speed Of Light video game
Play 8-bit take on Eddie's adventures online
Iron Maiden have released an 8-bit video game based on the promo for their single Speed Of Light.
The metal giants issued the video for the track earlier this month – giving fans a taste of the group's first new music in five years. The song is taken from upcoming double album The Book Of Souls, released on September 4.
Director Llexi Leon was inspired by retro video games and has described the result as the best work of his career.
Now fans can play the role of Maiden's mascot Eddie in the Speed Of Light browser-based video game, available at the band's website.
This week Maiden confirmed they would tour the world in 2016 onboard a new and improved Ed Force One, to be piloted by frontman Bruce Dickinson.
Iron Maiden are cover stars of the latest issue of Metal Hammer magazine, out now in print, digital and via TeamRock+
