Atari is celebrating five decades of gaming with its Atari 50 compilation. The set will be loaded with games from every era too, including the Jag’s.
Where did you learn to fly?
Atari 50: The Anniversary Celebration is unlike any other video game collection, acting as a dynamic trek through the company’s history. Emulating seven separate Atari hardware platforms in one package, the title stands as a remarkable achievement accomplished by the Digital Eclipse team. The titles in the collection span five decades, including a library of over 100 video games, sorted by era in an intuitive linear timeline. The compilation includes other files and materials like early development sketches, hardware schematics, internal memos, pictures, films, and other “artifacts,” the majority of which have never been made available to the public.Atari press release
It’s not every day that you see the Atari Jaguar get a little recognition, so for that alone Atari 50 is notable. The new collection is packed with a small number of titles from the company’s “64 bit” console, in a set of games that will add up to over 100 games from across the decades.
From Digital Eclipse, Atari 50 will land on Xbox and PlayStation consoles, the Switch, and the PC on November 11th.
