PopCap is to release a free multiplayer mode for Peggle 2 called Duels.
Peggle 2 producer Jared Neuss said on Facebook: "This new mode will enable players to compete against each other, in the same room or across the Internet, head-to-head on the same board," he said. "We loved Duel mode in the original Peggle and can't wait to bring it into the updated world of Peggle 2.
"We'll be announcing details soon, but rest assured that we're working to bring you Duels as soon as we possibly can. For free."
Neuss added: "Duels are just the beginning. There are lots of surprises in store for Peggle 2 fans and we'll be bringing you regular updates as we continue to expand and add to the world that we've built."
Peggle 2 hit Xbox One on Monday. It is a timed exclusive on Microsoft's console and supports optional Kinect controls.
