Blizzard announced that it is adding two more classic games to the Blizzard Arcade Collection, launched earlier this year as part of BlizzConline.
The Blizzard Arcade Collection increases by two after adding Lost Vikings 2 and RPM Racing to the mix. Players who already own the collection will receive both 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 solve as the three Vikings find their way home.
RPM Racing is a prequel to Rock N Roll Racing. Rock N Roll Racing fans will see familiar elements like different cars, modular upgrades, isometric perspective and career progression saving function.
The new patch also adds some bonus features, such as a Streamer mode for Rock N Roll Racing, which includes a local 4-player multiplayer that allows you to stream while keeping the MIDI versions of the soundtrack. Presumably, this does not hinder any possible DMCA removal.
The Museum mode, which includes classic design notes about the games included in the Blizzard Arcade Collection, now includes a gallery of design documents that show how these games went from initial concepts to complete games.
