Warlords re-imagining available today on PSN, Nov. 14 on XBLA

A re-imagining of Warlords launches today on PlayStation Network for $9.99; it will be available on the European PSN tomorrow for €9.99, and will be released on Xbox Live Arcade for 800 Microsoft Points on Nov. 14, publisher Atari announced today.

Developed by Griptonite Games, this version of Warlords updates the 1980 arcade classic for the modern era, with local and online competitive and cooperative multiplayer modes for up to four people. The game is still designed around defending a stronghold from your enemies while attacking them yourself. But Griptonite added offensive power-ups to the equations, and the game tasks you with controlling your troops — called Snoots — to gather power-ups, secure capture points and help defend your castle.

Warlords includes single-player quick matches and multiplayer campaign modes, and a "classic" mode provides an experience that hews closer to the original game. Watch the launch trailer for more details.

Atari originally announced the remake in May 2011 with a release scheduled for summer, but then delayed the game until now. It is unrelated to the high-definition version of Warlords launched on XBLA back in 2008.
