Breaking Benjamin will appear in the video games AdventureQuest 3D and AdventureQuest Worlds. The band members will appear as avatars who will perform a “battle concert” in the game over a two-week period starting February 18th.
Although acts like Korn and Alice In Chains have also made similar appearances in the games, the publishers say that Breaking Benjamin's concert will take place in a “new dimension” and be the game's “darkest battle concert yet.”
Breaking Benjamin frontman Ben Burnley is a confirmed video game junkie, and he told us a while back he's always looking to get involved with them: “Well, we always have our eyes peeled, and you gotta look for the right opportunities to do something like that, and I'm constantly playing video games and I look through video game magazines for projects up and coming. I find the games and I tell my guy at my label, I tell him and then he gets on it, sees what he can do about it.”
Last week Breaking Benjamin released Aurora, a collection of re-imagined versions of some of the band's most popular tracks. The band also shared a new music video for “Far Away,” the one all-new song on the LP, featuring Cold's Scooter Ward on guest vocals.
