Peggle 2, PopCap's previously Microsoft-exclusive black hole time vortex of sheer addiction, is finally coming to PlayStation 4.
Peggle 2 launches on Xbox 360 on May 7, Popcap said this morning. This version of the game will add a multiplayer Duel Mode.
Peggle is a puzzle game that involves clearing colored pegs from a board by shooting balls from the top of the screen, but that's not what the game is about. It's about getting to the explosively colorful celebration at the end of each level, and Peggle 2's celebrations are the most satisfying yet.
Peggle 2 is getting multiplayer via free DLC. A recently published Facebook post by Popcap's Jared Neuss outlines their post-release plans for Peggle 2, which include a free piece of DLC adding the multi-player Duel mode from the first Peggle, along with regular updates to "expand and add to" the game's world.
Peggle 2 is coming Dec. 9 to the Xbox One via Xbox Live. This comes from PopCap, in a preview of the game in VentureBeat yesterday. Peggle 2 will have 120 levels and run $11.99.
I had a bit of cognitive whiplash when I saw Peggle 2 this afternoon. Its predecessor is a game that’s everywhere. Your mom or even grandmother probably plays it, or something heavily inspired by it. The browser version of the first Peggle is what helped its viral spread but there I was playing it on an Xbox One…
Revealed this morning as an Xbox One timed exclusive, Peggle 2 got a little more stage time at EA's Gamescom presser than it did at E3, parading about its balls and pegs like it was in some sort of first-ever gameplay trailer.
Like Peggle? Well Peggle 2 is an Xbox One launch title. And Plants vs. Zombies Garden Warfare is hitting the console next year. Both are coming to Xbox One first.
Remember that awesome Peggle 2 announcement? Here's the same announcement, only more extreme. We're talking like, unicorns and explosions type of ridiculousness. And it's official!
PopCap co-founder John Vechey took the stage to announce Plants Vs. Zombies 2: Garden Warfare today. But not before announcing a sequel to Peggle and doing an uppercut.
