Now Available for PlayStation Network (U.S.), Europe on Oct. 10
LOS ANGELES - Oct. 9, 2012 - Atari, one of the world’s most recognized publishers and producers of interactive entertainment, announced today that they have launched Warlords ®, a remake of the classic title for the Atari 2600, on PlayStation®Network. The game is available today for aspiring warmongers across the U.S. for $9.99, with an EU release coming tomorrow, Oct. 10, for€9.99. Warlords brings all the action of the classic game into the modern age with an all-new look and online multiplayer modes. The game will also make its debut on Xbox LIVE ® Arcade next month on Nov. 14 for 800 Microsoft Points.
Warlords is a one-to-four player arcade action game in which players will defend their castles from a maniacal dragon, unleashing a torrent of fireballs and crafty minions against their strongholds. In this whimsical reinvention of the beloved classic, players will face the ultimate battle of speed, strategy and survival. In addition, the game will increasingly challenge players to multitask as they strive to shield the castle walls and simultaneously rally troops to capture control points, collect power-ups and destroy the other warring factions– either alone or alongside three other players.
