Rovio Entertainment has disclosed a special Halloween collaboration between Angry Birds Evolution and Eddie, the mascot of legendary rock band Iron Maiden.
One of the most recognisable figures in the world of metal, Eddie will be a special playable character as ‘Eddie the Bird’ in Angry Birds Evolution this Halloween season.
The two-week character event begins on October 18 with players who successfully recruit Eddie the Bird to their team during that time being able to keep him forever.
To celebrate Eddie the Bird’s arrival, there will be four evolutions of the character to represent different albums from Iron Maiden’s storied history.
In addition, the Bird Island will be transformed into a Halloween-themed heavy metal oasis with a land full of hair-raising and tributes to Eddie, Iron Maiden and the heavy metal universe.
Rovio is also planning to offer fans some exclusive Eddie the Bird merchandise made available for a limited time during the event.
In addition, Eddie the Bird will also be migrating to Iron Maiden’s own Iron Maiden: Legacy of the Beast mobile RPG in 2018.
