World news – Blizzard brings back The Lost Vikings, Rock’n’Roll Racing and Blackthrone

0

To celebrate their 30th anniversary, Blizzard announced today that they are re-releasing three of their oldest games: Rock N Roll Racing, The Lost Vikings and Blackthorne. These are presented somewhat in the Blizzard Arcade Collection, with various functions such as rewind and additional levels as well as a “museum” of old development resources and interviews. It’s now available on PC, but currently only when you buy Blizzard’s large pack of BlizzCon goodies.

The collection includes the three games in their original versions as well as the fancier new Definitive Editions. With the Lost Vikings and Blackthrones you can save anywhere and there is a « watch mode » where players can watch playthroughs and then step in and take control when they want. They are rounded off with collections of « game art, development resources, unused content, lore, interviews, and more. » 1992 The Lost Vikings is a puzzle platformer with three burly boys who must combine their various skills . His Def Ed is a mix of the different console versions, says Blizzard. « It combines the superior audio and video experience of the first release with the additional stages and cutscenes and supports up to three players in local co-op mode, which were added in a subsequent version. » / P>

Rock N ‘Roll Racing is a top-down murder vehicle game that was first released in 1993. The Def Ed comes in 16: 9 resolutions, increases the number of split-screen multiplayer from two to four, adds snow and rain, adds extra tracks, and slips into « actual recordings » of songs from the soundtrack and whams in new songs and voice-over clips.

And Blackthorne from 1994 is kind of a flashback-esque shooter. I can’t say I know this one. The Def Ed adds an area that can only be seen in the 32-bit version and a map that fills in as you explore.

I honestly don’t have many memories of it – you’re keen on a return visit , Gang?

The Blizzard Arcade Collection is « currently » exclusively available on PC as part of Blizzard’s Celebration Collection, a range of doodads for many of their games starting at £ 16.79. Would you hope they sell it separately too? They already sell it separately on Switch, PlayStation and Xbox.
