Gamers will wield a butterfly design-inspired sword and an arsenal of guns to decimate waves of ungodly enemies in the not-too-distant future.
NeverDead begins in the waking hours of peace and calm, when the world is under threat of being consumed by a demonic plague. Centuries have passed since the world succumbed to an unforeseen shadow of evil, and a hero was made an immortal by demons. These demons have risen once again in the present day causing unrelenting mayhem reinforced by destructible environments within the game. Now using his immortalic regenerative powers re-assembling his own body to evade death, the hero carries out the only salvation the world will know, for he is Never Dead.
"Never Dead," the official song sharing Konami's video game title, will appear on Megadeth's 13th album, which the band is currently recording.
"The members of Megadeth are speed-metal music pioneers with a world renowned reputation for producing song catalogs with original and progressive lyrics," said Shinji Hirano, President of Konami Digital Entertainment, Inc. "The NeverDead soundtrack is an example of pure imagination and it fully captures the essence of our game. We're proud to have such a distinctive band associated with our title."
Megadeth have sold over 25 million albums worldwide, with five consecutive albums being certified Platinum or multi-Platinum in the United States and have garnered nine Grammy nominations under their belt. "
'Never Dead' was written specifically for the game, and the song's lyrics and concept fit perfectly with its transcendental nature," said Madelyn Scarpulla, Senior Vice President of Marketing & Creative Services for Roadrunner Records. "Megadeth and Roadrunner are both looking forward to the mutually beneficial marketing partnership we have established with Konami with the launch of NeverDead and Megadeth's new album coming this fall."
