Warlords Reinvented For Relaunch

  • Free-for-all battles
  • Destroy other warring factions
  • Arrives winter

Atari Europe says Warlords, a remake of the classic Atari 2600 title, will be making its debut on Xbox Live Arcade and PlayStation Network later this year.

Warlords will have its’ global unveil this weekend at the MCM Expo where Atari will be showcasing both Warlords and Dungeons & Dragons Daggerdale at the Atari stand.

Warlords is a one-to-four player, arcade action game in which players defend their castles from minions and fireballs spun from the mouth of a maniacal dragon. In this reinvention of the beloved classic, players will face the ultimate battle of speed, strategy and survival. Warlords 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.

Gamers can defend their castle walls from the destruction of fast-flying fireballs with their mighty shield. Move the shield around the perimeter of the castle with precision and speed to deflect the fireballs or grab onto and charge fireballs to release even more devastating attacks back at opponents.

Multiple local/online game modes sweeten the quest for power and allow for cooperative and competitive battles with up to four 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 Troops and pit them against foes. A 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 immobilise enemies or bolster defenses.
