Avenged Sevenfold has released a game. It's about hitting things. It's called Hail to the King: Death Bat. Wow.

It just came out in New Zealand, which means it should be landing in the UK at midnight tonight.

The game sees you stomping around gothic locations, mashing a couple of buttons to kill demons and minions and all manner of other creatures. All in a day's work if you're in a band really.

You can check out out hands-on video with the game above. I think it's fair to say that we're not super-impressed with it. At all. Have a watch, you'll see.

When the game lands tonight it'll set you back £2.99 / $4.99. Which is probably a bit too much. We should have a review up in the next couple of days.
