To many, Iron Maiden is known as a defining rock band that they grew up with. To many more, the group is known for amazing guitar riffs and rewardingly difficult songs in the game Rock Band.
Iron Maiden has embraced the fact that it has earned so many new fans in the gaming community by launching a new online game called The Final Frontier to promote a new album of the same name.

Flash game developer Matmi created the simplistic game, describing it by saying, "Iron Maiden are traveling deep into space to play their first intergalactic gig."

Basically, players explore the galaxy as Iron Maiden but must destroy space pirates and find their lost band equipment along the way.

Iron Maiden also had a similar tie-in with its Flight 666 album. The Flight 666 online game was reportedly played more than 4.5 million times.
