'Peggle 2' release date announced, features two new peg types

By
Peggle 2 has been given a release date by PopCap.

The puzzle sequel will be available as a timed exclusive on Xbox One from December 9.



Meanwhile, additional details including peg types, Trials and Peggle Master abilities have been revealed.

The two new peg types are an armoured peg that requires two hits to clear from the board, and a pinball-style bumper, which projects the ball away at a high speed to keep it in play.

All but one of the Peggle Master abilities - Master's Bjorn's extended preview of the ball's trajetry – will be new to the sequel.

They include lighting up two adjacent pegs upon landing, travelling through blue pegs to reach distant orange ones, and launching a giant boulder which will smash through layers of legs.

Finally, a freezing ability will coat the arena in a layer of ice, causing pegs to slide out of place when hit to cascade into one another.

All five Peggle Masters will have their own campaign with ten stages each, with every stage offering three objectives, such as clearing all the pegs or reaching a specific score.



Each one will also offer ten Trials after completion, which are part tutorial and part skill games, showcasing advanced techniques and asking players to complete special boards under specific conditions.

For example, a board must be completed without going over a certain score, or clearing an entire board of orange pegs.

Beyond the Peggle Master stages there will be a 'Celestial Realm' world with a bonus ten levels and trials.

PopCap will also release Plants Vs Zombies: Garden Warfare as a Xbox One and Xbox 360 timed exclusive in February.
