Blizzard Arcade Collection Adds Two More Games With New Update
Blizzard has announced it is adding two more classic games to the Blizzard Arcade Collection, released earlier this year as part of BlizzConline.
The Blizzard Arcade Collection grows by two after adding Lost Vikings 2 and RPM Racing to the mix. Players who already own the collection will receive the two new titles through a free update. The two games will join existing titles like Lost Vikings, Rock N Roll Racing, and Blackthorne.
Lost Vikings 2 is a direct sequel to The Lost Vikings focusing again on the three heroes Erik, Baleog, and Olaf in a new adventure. The sequel adds new powers, new characters, and more puzzles to tackle as the three vikings find their way home.
RPM Racing is a prequel to Rock N Roll Racing. Fans of Rock N Roll Racing will see familiar elements like different cars, modular upgrades, isometric perspective, and career progress save function.
The new patch also adds some bonus features such as a Streamer Mode for Rock N Roll Racing which includes a 4-player local multiplayer that lets you stream while keeping the MIDI versions of the soundtrack. Presumably, so this doesn’t trip up any potential DMCA takedowns.
The Museum mode, which includes classic design notes about the games included in the Blizzard Arcade Collection now includes a Design Documents gallery that shows how these games went from initial concepts to full games.
