LOS ANGELES - Nov. 14, 2012 - Atari, one of the world’s most recognized publishers and producers of interactive entertainment, announced today that Warlords ® , a remake of the classic title for the Atari 2600, is now available on Xbox LIVE ® Arcade for the Xbox 360 ® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft for 800 Microsoft Points.

A multiplayer, arcade-action game, Warlords pits players against up to three opponents, human or computer-controlled, in a struggle to defend their castle walls and eliminate rivals to be the last warlord standing. Players use a magic shield to block fireballs shot at their walls, aiming to deflect the fiery missiles at their enemies’ strongholds. Warlords will need quick reflexes to defend themselves, but that’s not all; Warlords also challenges gamers’ strategic skills, as they command groups of minions that battle against other troops to attack enemy walls or capture control points and power-ups.
