The relationship of both Digital Eclipse and Atari continues to grow. Previously, the American game studio in a legendary partnership worked out Atari 50: Anniversary Celebration which celebrates much of the titles from the golden era for the firm. And while Atari still stands decades later, players can now reflect on that time with a new time capsule experience on modern platforms.

Additionally, Digital Eclipse went on to become part of the Atari family earlier this fall. In an acquisition announcement, it was revealed that $20 million deal was made to bring the team onto Atari. This plays on top of Digital Eclipses’ pursuit for more legacy remasters. This includes Gold Master Series’ which launched ‘The Making of Karateka’ earlier in 2023.

In a new announcement this week, Atari & Digital Eclipse shared a new update is coming to Atari 50: Anniversary Celebration. Part of the ‘Holiday Content Update’, a list of new games are now available. You can read the full roster below:

“Atari and developer Digital Eclipse today released a free content update for the critically acclaimed interactive anthology Atari 50: The Anniversary Celebration.
