The “Different World” referred to above is a nod to the 2006 Iron Maiden track of the same name and its resulting music video. This new dungeon event will launch today, September 19th at 05:00pm PDT.

Within Temptation vocalist Sharon den Adel commented about her band’s involvement in the game:

“If I listen to Iron Maiden, I feel like I’m on an adventure and I’m traveling through time. Eddie is my tour guide and with Eddie and Genesis teaming up.. That’s the best thing ever! Aren’t they a cute couple?!”

She continued:

Genesis, for us, is not only a symbol of an evolution of life, but also a symbol for the wars within the mind and the wars with the outside world. We think it’s so cool that she previously was only a piece of artwork for us. She was an inspiration for several things we were doing, but now coming to life in this game: it’s a surreal thing to see.. It’s a whole new level! It turned out so awesome, so check it out!”
