This is not the "Asteroids" you remember from your childhood. Atari, in partnership with game developer Salty Games, has launched a re-imagined version of its classic game, "Asteroids: Outpost."
The open world, multi-player shooter game launches 36 years after the original, and puts players in the role of deep-space miners who must harvest rare ore and expand their bases while protecting themselves from asteroid showers and claim jumpers.
"This is part of our new strategy. We are going to be teaming up with young and innovative studios to take a refreshing look at each game from our extensive portfolio," says Todd Shallbetter, chief operating officer, Atari. "'Asteroids' is the first of a long series of rebirths, and we are considering doing the same for our other iconic games such as 'Warlords,' 'Adventure,' 'Tempest,' 'Missile Command' and many more."
Atari began licensing its brands in 2008, and recently launched a fitness app featuring a number of its classic games.
