Free update adds new games and features to the collection
The Blizzard Arcade Collection is a nifty little nostalgia trip, dropping during Blizzconline. Featuring three classic, albeit definitely aged, games, the collection also included some neat extra features that added to the experience like a museum.
Now, the collection is getting a free update. Two new old games are being added, RPM Racing and Lost Vikings 2, and a Design Documents gallery in the museum alongside a “streamer mode” for Rock ‘n Roll Racing that plays the music in midi format while you stream.
Here are the notes for the two games:
The sequel to The Lost Vikings, Lost Vikings 2 once again finds our three heroes Erik, Baleog, and Olaf taken far from their home and thrust into a new adventure. Tapping into new abilities and joined by two new allies, the werewolf Fang and the dragon Scorch, on their quest to find their way back home, our Viking heroes must overcome challenging puzzles that put a fresh spin on the original game’s design.
Not a sequel, but a prequel, RPM Racing is a time capsule preserving the seed that would eventually bloom into Rock N Roll Racing®. The basics are all there: isometric perspective, different cars to choose from, the ability to make modular upgrades to your vehicle, career progress save functionality, and plenty of vehicular mayhem. Check out RPM Racing to get a look at one of the very first games produced by Blizzard.
The update is available now, for free, across all platforms.
