With a patch, Blizzard is further upgrading its arcade collection. Not only are more functions added to the existing games, but we are also getting two new games: RPM Racing and Lost Vikings 2.
For retro fans, the last BlizzConline 2021 was a real festival. In addition to the announcement of Burning Crusade Classic and the remake Diablo 2 Ressurrected, the developers also knocked out the Blizzard Arcade Collection: a collection of very early titles by the studio, some of which were still published under the old name Silicon & Synapse. Including classics like Rock & Roll Racing or The Lost Vikings. Sometimes even with new content or at least with new comfort features. Even then, the developers announced that they did not want to leave it at that. And so, just a few months after its release, the Blizzard Arcade Collection has been expanded.
The existing games will be equipped with additional features. For example:
- a streamer mode for rock & roll racing
- the much sought-after local multiplayer for Rock & Roll Racing
- a gallery of design documents for the integrated museum
But not only the existing games have been improved. There are also two new games in the Blizzard Arcade Collection:
- RPM Racing – the spiritual predecessor of Rock & Roll Racing
- The Lost Vikings 2 – the continuation of the story of Erik, Baleog and Olaf
RPM Racing is very reminiscent of Rock & Roll Racing. Isometric view, upgradeable vehicles and lots of action on the slopes. However, the setting is a little less futuristic. With RPM Racing, players can now replay one of Silicon & Synapse’s very first works.
The Lost Vikings 2, on the other hand, is the sequel to The Lost Vikings. Equipped with two new allies, a werewolf and a dragon, and some new skills, new puzzles must be solved and adventures on the way home.
The Blizzard Arcade Collection is still only about the various anniversary collections which also includes tons of other goodies for all Blizzard games.
