Atari Introduces Atari Flashback Classics Volume 3 and Shows Two More Titles

By Rebecca Smith, 1 year ago
During E3, we got a deluge of trailers, screenshots, live streams and lots of information from more games than you can shake a stick at. None of those were from publisher Atari, and unless you were actually at the show, you wouldn't have realised they were there. To remedy this, the publisher has released a number of screenshots for every one of the games they had there, three of which are coming to PlayStation 4.

The first of the three games is Llamasoft's Tempest 4000. Remaining faithful to the original title released 37 years ago, the latest reboot will bring the franchise into the modern world with new features and 4K graphics. Some of you may have already managed to get your hands on this when it was released prematurely and temporarily back in March, but if you didn't, you can take a look at those graphics below.


The second of the three games is Atari Flashback Classics Vol. 3. Similar to the first two volumes, this game will include 50 classic Atari titles remastered for PS4, including Atari 5200 titles for the first time. The list of games included in the collection can be found in the spoiler below, followed by screenshots for 19 of them.

Finally, the third title is RollerCoaster Tycoon Joyride, making its way towards PlayStation 4 with PlayStation VR compatibility. As you might expect, the game tasks players with building and riding their own rollercoasters. To add an extra twist, targets will appear during the hair-raising rides that players must shoot down to earn points and climb the leaderboards. You can see the game in action below.


Tempest 4000 doesn't have a release window right now. However you'll be able to get your hands on Roller Coaster Tycoon this fall, and the latest volume of Atari Flashback Classics should appear during Q4 2018.
