After a bombastic announcement at last year’s EA press conference at E3, Peggle 2 was quietly released as an Xbox One exclusive in December. It is now only a matter of time before the popular Peggle sequel makes its way to every other platform.
EA and PopCap Games this week announced that the rollout of Peggle 2 will continue first with more Microsoft console exclusivity. The game will be coming to Xbox 360 consoles on May 7.
Peggle 2 is largely more of the same pinball/pachinko action introduced in the original Peggle. For the sequel PopCap has included several new “Peggle Masters” that come with new game-altering powers for players to exploit.
In addition to all of the content in the Xbox One version of the game, the Xbox 360 version of Peggle 2 will come with a multiplayer mode called “Duel Mode.” The new mode allows two players to compete on the same stage, online or locally. Duel Mode has also rolled out to Xbox One versions of Peggle 2 this week through a free DLC download.
“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. “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’.”
