Blizzard’s Arcade Collection adds two new titles
“Lost Vikings 2” and “RPM Racing” join the Blizzard Arcade Collection! But that’s not all. With this latest patch, we’re also adding some new features and optimization updates to level up the Blizzard Arcade Collection,” the company explains on its official website.
Lost Vikings 2
In this sequel, our three heroes Erik, Baleog, and Olaf are once again far from home and immersed in a new adventure. In addition to having new abilities, our brave Vikings will have the help of two new allies, the werewolf Fang and the dragon Scorch, to find their way back home and will have to overcome complex puzzles that give a refreshing twist to the original game design.
Not a sequel, but a prequel: RPM Racing is a time capsule that has preserved the seed of what would eventually blossom into Rock N’ Roll Racing. All the foundations of its predecessor are there: isometric perspective, different cars to choose from, the ability to install modular upgrades on vehicles, the option to save what you advance, and all the automotive mayhem you could ever want. Try RPM Racing to get a first-hand look at one of the first games produced by Blizzard.
On the other hand, among the new features that owners of the collection will find, we discovered that the museum now offers an in-depth look at the development process of the company’s classic video games. “Take a look to find out how the games went from the initial concept to their final version,” Blizzard says.
At the same time, they have added the new Retransmitter mode for Rock N’ Roll Racing in the Definitive Edition and the local multiplayer mode for four players. This will allow players to rebroadcast their games with MIDI versions of the songs without losing the game’s powerful sound.
