Arcade "classics" get no rest, eternally being re-released, reworked and remade. Atari's Warlords is one such victim, remade for Xbox Live Arcade in 2008, re-released via the Xbox 360 Game Room in 2010, and now receiving another remake for XBLA and PlayStation Network.
The "arcade action game" is made for one to four players, who must defend their castles from a fireball-spewing dragon while commanding troops to capture control points and smash their enemies. Local and online multiplayer modes include co-op siege, 2v2, and free-for-all battles.
Developed by Griptonite Games, this latest version of Warlords is due in summer 2011. Pricing has yet to be announced.
