NetEntertainment and Global Merchandising Services are once again teaming up following the announcement of the third in the ‘NetEnt Rocks’ trilogy of titles. Motörhead: Louder Than Anything Else is on track for an autumn release, and the title – like its predecessors – is likely to contain audio content produced by the heavy metallers famed for hits including 'Ace of Spades', 'Overkill' and 'Iron Fist'.
Simon Hammon, chief product officer for NetEnt, said:
"We are thrilled to be working with an iconic brand such as Motörhead through our collaboration with Global Merchandising Services. Motörhead will form a great addition to our 'NetEnt Rocks' series of games. We will make a game the band will be proud of by creating a fast paced slot machine that is in tune with the energy and passion of the music."
Those are fitting words from Hammon, as Motörhead were legendary for their hell-raising behaviour, combustible inter-band relationships, visceral albums and high octane live shows. They were reported to produce sound levels of up to 126 decibels – making them one of the loudest outfits on Earth. With a general disdain for their peers, Ian ‘Lemmy’ Kilmister and his bandmates remained on the margins of the mainstream throughout their 40-year career.
Even so, it was an outpouring of sadness that greeted the news that Lemmy had passed away following a short battle with cancer in December. With the rest of the band deciding to call it a day, NetEnt have the opportunity to create a lasting tribute to a bona fide rock god who played his part in introducing speed metal to a wider audience.
This isn’t NetEnt’s first foray into rock music and slot gaming hybrids. They released their opus to Guns N’ Roses earlier in 2016. The game was designed to celebrate the band’s 30th anniversary, but it quickly became clear that this is a stellar title for all gamers to enjoy, even if they're not huge fans of the band.
The second game in the ‘NetEnt Rocks’ trilogy is the eponymously-titled Jimi Hendrix slot game, which was revealed at ICE Totally Gaming 2016. This will include songs taken from the seminal guitarist’s back catalogue, including the unforgettable 'Purple Haze', 'Foxy Lady' and 'Crosstown Traffic'. It’s the visual, as well as the audio, that's so intriguing about this slot game based on the iconic axeman. Available entirely in 3D, the main character will feature hundreds of unique animations and facial expressions, making it one of the most aesthetically-pleasing titles scheduled for a spring release.
When it comes to the Guns N’ Roses slot game, it's the multitude of bonuses and special features that has led to this game becoming one of the most revered slots around the globe, despite only being released a matter of months ago. The introduction of the ‘Crowd Pleaser’ bonus game, the ‘Encore’ free spins round and the appropriately-named ‘Appetite for Destruction’ wild symbol ensures that players of all musical tastes can win handsome sums of money.
But it's the addition of officially licensed Guns N’ Roses tracks that make the game, and the hope is that Motörhead: Louder Than Anything Else will boast a similar set-up. To enjoy one of these spectacular titles from the 'NetEnt Rocks' series, visit Leo Vegas Casino today!
