The Blizzard Arcade Assortment launched in February for PC, Change, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. It has three basic Blizzard video games: The Misplaced Vikings, Rock N Roll Racing, and Blackthorne.
Those that personal the compilation also can benefit from the sequel to The Misplaced Vikings. The Misplaced Vikings 2 first debuted in 1997 for SNES, Sega Saturn, PlayStation, and PC. This was at a time when Blizzard had shifted focus to creating PC hits like Warcraft. Misplaced Vikings 2 was actually underneath my radar when it got here out, so it is a neat alternative to lastly attempt it.

The sport additionally now helps four-player native multiplayer. Blizzard has additionally added design paperwork to the compilation’s digital museum.
