There’s no doubt that games these days look absolutely gorgeous and are becoming increasingly complex, but sometimes nothing says gaming better than old school. Atari recently announced that they will be bringing together 100 iconic Atari games into a single PC title, Atari Vault. The game will include new features and multiplayer capabilities, and will be playable at PAX South taking place this weekend.
Including 100 iconic, fan-favorite games like Asteroids®, Centipede®, Missile Command®, Tempest®, Warlords®, and many more, Atari Vault enables fans to relive the classic gaming experience in the modern age, with an upgraded user interface, the addition of online and local multiplayer options, and Steam Controller support that provides significantly improved precision control. For the first time ever, fans from around the world can challenge other players on Steam Leaderboards and compete for arcade supremacy – all while rocking out to the games’ original 70’s and 80’s soundtracks. Atari Vault is under development by Code Mystics, and will launch in Spring 2016.
It will definitely be interesting to see what enhancements and new features are coming to these classics, and adding multiplayer and leaderboards will definitely breathe new life into these games from “yesteryear.”
