The Blizzard® Arcade Collection levels up: Two new games, new features

The Blizzard Arcade Collection has just added two more games to the line-up: Lost Vikings® 2 and RPM RacingTM! With this latest patch, a fistful of new features and quality-of-life updates have also been included to really level up this collection of classic 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.

Giving a whole new look into the development of these classic titles, the Museum now includes a Design Documents gallery. Check it out to learn more about how these games were translated from initial concepts to finished products.

Also added: a new Streamer Mode for 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 still preserving the game’s rocking sound.

If you already own the Blizzard Arcade Collection, the patch to add the two new titles and other features is out now. Otherwise, get in on the action now and grab the Blizzard Arcade Collection for 15% off until May 5th at 11:59 p.m. PT.
