If you’ve been on the fence about the Blizzard Arcade Collection, now might be the perfect time to check it out.
It appears that Blizzard has listened to fan requests for some more content and has now added two more games to its digital retro package. Yes, that’s right – on top The lost Vikings Rock ‘n Roll Racing and Blackthorne, there is now Lost Vikings 2 and RPM RacingHere’s a bit about both:
The sequel to The lost Vikings Lost Vikings 2 once again finds our three heroes Erik, Baleog and Olaf who have been taken far from their home and embark on a new adventure. By tapping into new skills and along with two new allies, the Werewolf Fang and the Dragon Scorch, on their quest to make their way back home, our Viking heroes must overcome challenging puzzles that put a new spin on the original game design.
Not a sequel, but a prequel, RPM Racing is a time capsule that preserves the seed that would eventually flower Rock N Roll RacingThe basics are all there: isometric perspective, different cars to choose from, the ability to do modular upgrades to your vehicle, functionality for saving career progression, and lots of chaos with vehicles. Checking out RPM Racing to watch one of Blizzard’s very first games.
Additionally, the new patch has added a handful of new features and quality of life updates to take the entire collection to the next level.
The museum now has a Design Documents gallery – showing how the games have been translated from concepts to finished products, and there is a new “Streamer Mode” for Rock N Roll Racing:
We also have a new one Streamer mode in front of Rock N Roll Racing in the Definitive Edition and 4 player local multiplayer that lets you stream your gameplay with MIDI versions of the songs while preserving the game’s rocking sound.
