About The Game

Experience a blast from Blizzard's past! The Blizzard® Arcade Collection brings three of our classic console games to modern platforms and new audiences.

INCLUDED GAMES:

  • Blackthorne®: As mercenary captain Kyle Blackthorne, traverse an alien planet, liberate the Androthi people, and claim your destiny.
  • The Lost Vikings®: Help three Vikings—Erik, Baleog, and Olaf—overcome challenging platforms and puzzles to find their way back home.
  • Rock N Roll Racing®: Rock out in the raddest vehicular destruction derby this side of 1993. RNRR is back with original rock and metal soundtrack hits plus a few new surprises.

LEVEL UP THE LEGACY:

The Blizzard Arcade Collection contains two different Original Editions of each game plus a new Definitive Edition!

  • The Original Editions are the games as you remember them but with new quality of life improvements included—like the ability to set custom keybindings, rewind your gameplay up to 10 seconds, save and load your game as well as watch playthroughs of Blackthorne and The Lost Vikings (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 additional upgrades—like enhanced local multiplayer for The Lost Vikings and Rock N Roll Racing, new songs and original artist performances for Rock N Roll Racing, a new level map for Blackthorne, localization for 12 languages*, and more.
