“Deadliest Warrior: Battlegrounds” features six of the notorious warriors from the Deadliest Warrior series and pits them against one another in all-out war. It is the first title in the series on console to feature multiplayer gameplay, allowing up to 16 warriors per battle, six game modes and the ability to customize every element of battle to determine which warrior is deadliest.
