Deadliest Warrior: Legends Will Battle It Out On XBLA Next Week

It looks like this summer will be full of pillaging. At least, if 345 Games have their way. According to Major Nelson, the publisher will be releasing Deadliest Warrior: Legends on XBOX Live Arcade next week. It will be a follow-up to the first downloadable title based on the popular television series, which hit online stores last year.

The game includes a new Risk like domination mode, which sees armies battling it out for control of territories. Though it will also deliver more visceral hack n’ slash combat in its single player campaign.

Digital warriors who purchased the game’s predecessor will receive exclusive weapons for use in Legends, which will be available for 800 Microsoft Points on July 6.
