Warlords, a remake of the classic title for the Atari 2600, is out today on PSN in the US as you’ve already noted here, and will arrive on the EU PS Store tomorrow, October 10, for €9.99.
Warlords has an all-new look and online multiplayer modes and the following key features:
- Protect the stronghold! Defend your castle walls from the destruction of fast-flying fireballs with your mighty shield. Move the shield around the perimeter of your castle with precision and speed to deflect the fireballs or grab onto and charge fireballs to release even more devastating attacks back at your opponents.
- Multiple local/online game modes sweeten the quest for power and allow for cooperative and competitive battles with up to 4 players. Select the faction of your choice and engage in a number of competitive variations, including co-op siege mode, 2v2 or classic free-for-all battles.
- Rally your troops and pit them against your foes. Your loyal posse brings a layer of depth and replayability to every battle and can be sent off to capture control points, gather power-ups to immobilize your enemies or bolster your defenses. Manage your troops wisely to gain the battlefield advantage.
The one-to-four player arcade action game tasks players with defending their castle against a maniacal dragon.
It will increasingly challenge players to multitask as they simultaneously rally troops to capture control points, collect power-ups and destroy the other warring factions.
A video is below for the PSN version.
Warlords will release on XBLA November 14 for 800 Microsoft Points.
