Megadeth has launched a new online video game for fans, with some cool prizes attached.
Megadeth Invasion is modeled after the classic Space Invaders and allows members of Megadeth's Cyber Army to battle alien invaders for high scores. A winner will be announced on May 1 and receive a prize package that includes a Kiko Loureiro signature guitar from Ibanez. Other prizes include a Dystopia poster signed by founder and frontman Dave Mustaine, a vinyl pressing of the Dystopia album and a Dystopia deluxe VR bundle.
Megadeth returns to the road April 29 for the Pulp Summer Slam festival in the Philippines and has dates booked through the summer in Asia, North America and Europe, as well as a fall North American tour supporting Scorpions that starts September 14.
