Atari announced that their arcade action remake of Warlords is slightly delayed and is now slated for release on both XBLA and PSN in Fall 2011. Warlords is developed by Griptonite Games and will support up-to four players in order to defend their castles from mischievous minions and ferocious fireballs spun from the mouth of a maniacal dragon.
Here are the game’s 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!
