Castle Crashers for Steam will feature voice chat, achievements, gamepad and cloud save support, and local and online multiplayer. The game debuted to a warm critical reception in 2008 on Xbox Live, with a subsequent release following in 2010 for PlayStation Network.

A four-player brawler, Castle Crashers places players in the oversized helmets of knights with elemental powers who must quest to regain a stolen idol and a kidnapped princess.

Castle Crashers for PC will be on hand at next month's Penny Arcade Expo in Seattle, Washington, which runs August 31 through September 2. For more on Castle Crashers, check out GameSpot's Xbox Live and PSN reviews.
