Blizzard has quietly released two more games, for free. Neither title is exactly what you’d call new, though – we first saw them pop up more than two decades ago.
Erik, Olaf and Baleog are The Lost Vikings, starring in their very own sidescrolling platformer. It’s still a single-player affair, and you are able to control all three vikings – but you can only look after one at a time.
Rock ‘n Roll Racing is different again – a racing game taken to early-90s extremes. You’ll have a car, yes, but you’ll also have missiles and landmines – and a glorious, dystopian landscape to hurtle around.
…in case you missed Blackthorne when it was re-released recently, it’s another 3D platformer, but it’s not as lighthearted as the Vikings – instead, an exiled king has returned to his home planet, armed only with a pump-action shotgun to fight off the many monsters.
If you want in on all of this (because why not grab ’em all?), it’s a simple matter of logging into Battle.net, navigating to the “Download Game Clients” page, and scrolling down. Somewhere beneath all the newfangled glitz, glamour and next-gen, you’ll find these terrible three, waiting for you.
Early reports suggest that the re-release is pretty much what you’d expect – the original games now able to run on modern machines – but we are hearing that the stellar soundtrack that accompanied Rock ‘n Roll Racing may be a casualty, now including just three songs.
