Sydney, Australia — March 5, 2014 — PopCap Games, creator of some of the world’s most beloved video game franchises and a division of Electronic Arts Inc. (NASDAQ: EA), today announced that Peggle™ 2 is coming for the Xbox 360, videogame and entertainment system on May 8 in Australia and New Zealand. Not only will the game include the lovable Peggle Masters that players have gotten a chance to work alongside, but the Xbox 360 version will have multiplayer Duel Mode so players can challenge their friends on the couch or online.
Peggle 2 has become more magical with the first installment of downloadable content available today for Xbox One, the all-in-one games entertainment system from Microsoft, which features the awesome multiplayer Duel Mode – a profound new experience that’s completely and utterly free. In a smart match, a private match or just relaxing on the couch, players can now compete against each other on the same board and take turns shooting pegs and demolishing bricks in an ultimate test of Peggle skill. Which mighty Peggle Master will you pick? And who will reach the heights of Extreme Fever first? You’ll have to play Duel Mode to find out!
“With all the excitement from our fans in December at launch we knew we wanted to continue growing the Peggle universe starting with more content and then expand onto the Xbox 360,” said John Vechey, General Manager at PopCap Games. “By offering the addition of Duel Mode, our fans will be able to challenge their friends continuously to find out who is ultimate ‘Peggle Master’.”
Just as in the classic original, Peggle 2 combines elements of pinball, pachinko and billiards and adds liberal doses of whimsy, fun, excitement and challenge – not to mention rainbows and a fifth of Beethoven.
