Blizzard® Arcade Collection
Relive the Legacy
Experience a blast from Blizzard's past! The Blizzard® Arcade Collection brings five of our classic console games to modern platforms and new audiences.
• Blackthorne® (BT): As mercenary captain Kyle “Blackthorne” Vlaros, traverse an alien planet, liberate the Androthi people, and claim your destiny.
• The Lost Vikings® (TLV): Help three Vikings—Erik, Baleog, and Olaf—overcome challenging platforms and puzzles to find their way back home.
• Lost Vikings® 2 (LV2): The three Vikings and their new friends, Fang and Scorch, need your help again to get home.
• Rock N Roll Racing® (RNRR): Rock out in the raddest vehicular destruction derby, with the original rock and metal soundtrack hits plus a few new surprises.
• RPM Racing® (RPMR): Return to the racetracks with all the classic features you love and plenty of vehicular mayhem.
LEVEL UP THE LEGACY:
The Blizzard Arcade Collection contains two different Original Editions of each game plus a new Definitive Edition for BT, TLV and RNRR! LV2 and RPMR each come as the 16-bit Original Edition.
• The Original Editions are the games as you remember but with new quality of life improvements included—like the ability to set custom button mapping, rewind your gameplay up to 10 seconds, save and load your game, or watch playthroughs (and then jump in to play at any point). Improvements may vary by game and game edition.
• The Definitive Editions include all the same great gameplay content as the Original Editions plus a few extra upgrades—like enhanced local multiplayer for TLV and RNRR, a new level map for BT, localization for 12 languages*, and more.
