Puzzle Quest: Challenge of the Warlords – Revenge of the Plague Lord is a robust expansion pack for the critically acclaimed and fan favorite videogame Puzzle Quest: Challenge of the Warlords on Xbox Live Arcade for the Xbox 360. Battles continue to be fought in the beloved “match-three” competitive puzzle game style in one of three gameplay modes, and the tremendous amount of new content offers the possibility for many additional hours of play. Plague Lord offers fans their choice of four new Hero professions—Bard, Rogue, Ranger and Warlock—as well as scores of new spells to cast and items to collect, plus challenging new quests, monsters, bosses and the introduction of a new archenemy, Antharg, the Lord of Plague. Gamers engage in competitive play using existing or new Heroes, and utilize online multiplayer connectivity, leaderboards and voice chat within the game. Infinite Interactive has delivered much more than the average expansion pack—the incredible amount of expansion content that Plague Lord includes sets a new precedent for offerings on Xbox LIVE Arcade.
