PopCap releases Peggle for WoW

If you play World of Warcraft and have any extra time!?! you can download the brand new Peggle for WoW addon from PopCap’s site.

The game rewards you with “Talent points” that can change the gameplay itself, and you can challenge other players within World of Warcraft to duels and score battles. There’s even a “Peggle loot” setting, which, when used as Master Looter, will let your guildies and friends with the addon actually take Peggle shots against each other to determine who gets loot drops.
