Atari Unveils “Breakout Recharged” Trailer
The small group of intellectual property lawyers who call themselves Atari has revealed a new trailer for Breakout Recharged.
Breakout Recharged is the fourth game in Atari’s “Recharged” retro revival line, joining Missile Command, Black Widow, and Centipede, which are all currently available.
For those young’uns out there unfamiliar with Breakout, it’s one of the original releases in a long line of brick-breaking pinball games, which includes other titles such as Arkanoid, Devilish, and Woody Pop. You control a paddle at the bottom of the screen, bouncing balls around and breaking bricks until you clear them all from the stage. Those bricks were just sitting there minding their own business…
Anyway, here’s the official breakdown of Breakout Recharged, followed by the latest trailer, you home-wrecking monsters:
The original brick-breaking game is back with some of the toughest challenges yet! Breakout: Recharged steps up the excitement with super challenging gameplay, all new power-ups, modern graphics and another original soundtrack from award-winning video game composer Megan McDuffee.
Breakout: Recharged will forever change what you expect from a brick-breaking title. The endless arcade mode and 50 challenge levels will push you to the limit of your skills. Don’t fret, however, as this wouldn’t be a Recharged title without game-changing powerups. Expect the aid of rail guns, homing missiles, and explosives to join the traditional multi-ball. You’ll need every tool in the arsenal and razor-sharp reflexes to climb the global leaderboards.
Breakout Recharged is currently scheduled to release on 10 February for Nintendo Switch, PS4, PS5, Xbone, SeXbox, Atari VCS, Steam PC and the Epic Games Store.
