New A7X Game Allows Gamers to Play as Late Drummer Jimmy 'The Rev' Sullivan
As Metal Injection notes, Avenged Sevenfold has revealed that they are releasing a video game. Titled "Hail to the King: Deathbat," the game appears to be a "Diablo III"-type RPG. In an interview with Revolver, Avenged Sevenfold frontman M. Shadows has revealed that all the Avenged Sevenfold band members will be playable characters in the game, including late drummer Jimmy "The Rev" Sullivan: 

"Well, for instance, Arin [Ilejay, drums] really wanted a blade in each hand with a boomerang effect so that they would come back to him. We couldn't do that, so we compromised and gave him a double-sided sword. Zacky [Vengeance, guitar] wanted a baseball bat - he throws rocks at people, and mashes them with a bat. Synyster Gates [guitar] has a little demon that runs around with him - and when you use his magic powers, you hear one of his dive-bombs, which he recorded specially for it. Johnny [Christ, bass] has the 'Hell Sword,' which rains blood on people, and I have 'Shadows Sight,' which is like a black plume of smoke that you inhale in your lungs. We all did stupid voiceovers for it when we were a little inebriated. [Laughs] Also, with the blessing of his parents, we put The Rev in the game. Once you unlock his character, you can use him as your comrade to help you through the levels."

The game follows the band's Deathbat mascot as he reclaims the underworld from the evil Dark Andronikos. It is set for release on mobile platforms this summer.
