Warlords, one of Atari’s original and celebrated arcade titles, is launching in updated form for the PlayStation Network today! We have a never-before-seen, exclusive launch trailer to show PlayStation.Blog readers right now. Enjoy!

Ismael seeks a Shard of the Relic of Nilhe, a mystic artifact that possesses the power to bring Dumazu the Destroyer back to life, and he tasks Janosz with obtaining it. Janosz’s reward: Dana Barrett.
