Megadeth‘s Dystopia has quickly become a fan favorite. The album cycle has offered fans some of the most exciting metal-related content with a series of virtual reality videos for five of the album’s cuts and even a Megadeth Bootcamp where fans spent the weekend at Dave Mustaine‘s California estate. With a good old fashioned, “But wait, there’s more,” the band has just launched the Megadeth Invasion computer game!
As seen in the image above, the game takes on the theme of the classic arcade game Space Invaders. Those who are enlisted in the Cyber Army (Megadeth’s official fan club) can play the game at the dedicated website with a chance to win a Dystopia prize pack including a Kiko Loureiro Signature KIKOSP2 Ibanez Guitar. Additional prizes being offered are a Dystopia Deluxe VR bundle; a Dystopia poster signed by Dave Mustaine and a vinyl Dystopia record.
The thrash act’s partners, Songkick, will pick the winner on May 1 of this year.
On a separate video game note, Megadeth’s Rust in Peace cut “Hangar 18″ is one of 60 songs featured in the recently released Rock Band VR game. The set list features an array of artsists and on the rock and metal side, other notable inclusions were culled from the catalog of Avenged Sevenfold, Foo Fighters, Ghost, Alice in Chains, DragonForce, Van Halen and many more.
Catch Megadeth on the road this fall as they provide direct support for the legendary Scorpions on a North American tour. For a full list of stops and more info, head to our 2017 Guide to Rock + Metal Tours.
