Initiated back in 2014 and developed in collaboration with all three band members, a rock infused new trailer jams alongside today’s announcement, giving prospective players a glimpse at the empowering new enhancements slated to arrive with Motörhead: Through the Ages:
Motörhead: Through the Ages is a wild tour through the mythos of the loudest band in the world. Harness the powers of the immortal Motörhead to defeat frightening new enemies in three demon-infested worlds intertwined with the songs of the band, and heavily inspired by Motörhead’s lyrics and attitude. Enter the Wörld of Wars, the Weird West and the Dark Ages. Bring the fight to the evil oppressors of these worlds – the Preacher, the Führer and the Queen of the Damned – and end their unsettling agendas to bring the mighty Snaggletooth back to life with the help of Lemmy and Lloyd Kaufman! This fully-scoped addition is suitable for newcomers to the Victor Vran series, veteran demon hunters and Motörheadbangers alike.
