A free update is now available for the Blizzard Arcade Collection that adds another two games to the anthology title for all platforms, Blizzard Entertainment announced on Tuesday.
The first free game added in the update is RPM Racing, short for Radical Psycho Machine Racing, which first appeared on the Super Nintendo in 1991. It was the first title developed by the company, which was known as Silicon & Synapse. The isometric perspective racing game would serve as a blueprint to the company’s later release, Rock N Roll Racing, which is also available in the collection.
The second free game is Lost Vikings 2, which first appeared on the Super Nintendo in 1997 and was ported to PC, Sega Saturn, and PlayStation.
The free update also added two features with a “Design Documents gallery” in the in-game Museum that shows off the initial concepts and development process behind the classic titles, and a Streamer Mode for Rock N Roll Racing that replaces the songs with MIDI versions so players can stream the game without receiving copyright infringements.
The Blizzard Arcade Collection released last February as part of Blizzard celebrating its 30th anniversary, and contained The Lost Vikings, Rock N Roll Racing, and Super Nintendo platformer BlackThorne. It is included in the “Celebration Collection” in any tier on PC, and purchased separately for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch.
