We're pleased to announce that players of Iron Maiden: Legacy of the Beast can look forward to a number of significant new features, tuning updates and character additions over the coming months. We're particularly excited about the impending launch of PvP, as well as our new campaign world 'Night City', inspired by Maidenís early catalogue and east end London roots.

In the midst of these planned feature updates, the game will also be moving home to its publisher and owner, Nodding Frog Ltd, a company based in the UK, bringing the game closer to the bandís own headquarters to ensure no time-rift disruptions. During this process, fans and players will notice no difference to the way that they experience, enjoy or play the game. Further stability fixes will be at the very center of these moves along with delivering an even stronger service to the ever growing LotB community.

I knew it, and I posted about the Nodding Frog switch about a week ago ;) this is surely for the best, let's just wish that the next update sees the light very soon...

Exactly, this helps us understand the 2 weeks of silence and lack of any updates. It had to happen though... It's pretty clear that Roadhouse will not have anything to do with the game anymore. Let's be honest: the community has been complaining and whining a hell of a lot because of bugs, crashes, and all that; if the game was to succeed, it was only a matter of time until they switched companies. Still, hope everything is for the best (or beast? :p)

Thanks for the update. I'm hopeful that these changes will move the game into the territory it deserves. Question: Will Nodding Frog be actually doing the development of the game? Are they a software company? If so I'm curious why it was subbed out to Roadhouse.

I'd also like to acknowledge that Roadhouse helped put a beautiful game together. Yeah, lots of problems and I'm sure this move was needed -but credit where credit is due.

I look forward to the future of LOTB!

Yes I totally agree +1

When I heard there was going to be a mobile Maiden game I feared it. Extremely surprised by how good it ended up being!

A bit of googling turned up a few articles about Roadhouse from the past few days. It looks like Roadhouse Interactive has closed its doors as a company, all staff laid off, and that layoffs may have been occurring over the summer as well. Who knows whether the layoffs contributed to the quality of the game or whether the problems with the game contributed to the companies' demise. Best of luck to those affected and best of luck to the new developers in charge.

Well, RI's demise has nothing to do with LOTB and imo LOTB is being carry on with NF proves that it is a commercially successful game.

I tend to agree and look forward to all of these updates. It's just worth recognizing the devs that got such a great game off the ground.

Excuse me but can someone explain me what "PvP" stands for? Player vs player (arena)? That would be great

Yes! And you should look at the "Introducing LOTB Developer..." thread on General Discussion, there is a sneak peak!

I was going to ask about the next content lvls to be opened... Hope Brave New World will be part of this, But I'm excited about PVP since Diablo 3 Refuses to put in a REAL arena!
