The lost vikings
Three lively Vikings – Erik the Fast, Baleog the Fierce and Olaf the Stout – have been kidnapped by the alien tyrant Tomator. Help these currently relocated looters battle their way through challenging puzzles, smash and solve to escape Tomator’s mysterious spaceship and return home safely.
Rock N Roll Racing
Put your driving skills to the test in the most radical race in the universe. Shred your way across hundreds of galactic routes and optimize your ride with all the mines, missiles and jump jets you need to crush and sustain the competition Spacious. It’s a rock and roll rush that you won’t forget.
Slip into the boots of Kyle “Blackthorne” Vlaros – mercenary, long-lost prince of the planet Tuul and a mean mullet rocking machine. Fight your way through horrific monsters and hordes of goblins with brutal strength, animal cunning and a trustworthy shotgun to defeat the evil Sarlac and free the Androthi people.
Level up the legacy
The Blizzard Arcade Collection includes two original editions of each game that reflect the experience of playing The lost vikings, Rock N Roll Racing, and Blackthorne when they first released on console systems in the 1990s (but with some much-needed modern conveniences like save, load, and rewind).

And finally, there’s the museum – a literal library of artifacts from the initial development and launch of these games, including conceptual art and boxing art, as well as behind-the-scenes bonuses like developer interviews, game lore, and original soundtracks.
Let the nostalgia begin
We hope you enjoy playing these classics as much as we have worked on them then and now. The Blizzard Arcade Collection is now on Xbox One and Xbox Series X | S available through backward compatibility, both as a standalone game and included with The 30 year old Blizzard Celebration Collection
