Xbox Live Update: Deadliest Warrior: Legends
Microsoft adds Pipeworks' fighting game, Dead Block, and MLB Bobblehead Pros to XBLA; Games on Demand adds Two Worlds, Sacred 2, and Risen.
In two weeks, Microsoft will invite gamers to its annual summer bash, commencing the Summer of Arcade promotion with Supergiant Games' Bastion on July 20. However, the action is heating up today on Xbox Live, as Microsoft has added three new Xbox Live Arcade games and three Games on Demand titles to its virtual marketplace.
Leading the pack today on Xbox Live Arcade is Deadliest Warrior: Legends (800 Microsoft points, or $10). A follow-up to last summer's tepidly received Deadliest Warrior: The Game, the new installment is also based on the television show Deadliest Warrior.
In Legends, gamers will control deadly warriors and take on famous figures like Alexander the Great, Attila the Hun, Genghis Khan, Hannibal, Hernan Cortes, Shaka Zulu, Sun Tzu, Vlad the Impaler, and William Wallace.
The game offers "enhanced" graphics, nine arenas, new fighting moves, and an all-new Generals strategy game, where players will battle on a larger scale.
Also out now on XBLA is Candygun's Dead Block (800 Microsoft points, or $10). The Unreal Engine-powered game lets gamers play as a construction worker, traffic warden, or a pretty peckish boy scout. Players are tasked with surviving waves of oncoming zombies either by force or with strategy. Additionally, gamers can fight alone or with friends in the split-screen mode.
The last new XBLA game out now is MLB Bobblehead Pros (800 Microsoft points, or $10). A Major League Baseball-licensed game from Konami, Bobblehead Pros includes all the league's teams and players. Additionally, the game sports co-op and online battle modes.
Switching to the Games on Demand hub, Microsoft added three new role-playing games to that tab this week. 2007's Two Worlds ($20), Piranha Bytes' Risen ($20), and 2010's Sacred 2: Fallen Angel ($30) are now live on the download hub.
