Atari 50: The Anniversary Celebration is expanding with the release of Atari 50: The Anniversary Celebration Expanded Edition this October. This new version of the game will include 39 new games and two additional timelines, making it a comprehensive history lesson and playable compilation of Atari’s iconic era.

The Expanded Edition will be available on October 25 as DLC for current Atari 50 owners or as a standalone title, both digitally and physically. Developer Digital Eclipse, now part of Atari, has added two new timelines to the game to provide players with even more content and insights into Atari’s legacy.

The first new timeline, “The Wider World of Atari,” features 19 playable games and eight video segments. Players can explore topics such as the creation of Breakout by Pong creator Al Alcorn, the work of artist Evelyn Soto on Atari’s “Fuji” logo, and a deep dive into Stern Electronics’ Berzerk.

The second timeline, “The First Console War,” includes 20 playable games and six video segments. This timeline focuses on the rivalry between the Atari 2600 and Mattel’s Intellivision, with interviews from industry veterans like Don Daglow, David Crane, Garry Kitchen, and Jne Terjung. Players can also experience rare Atari 2600 and 5200 prototypes and playable M Network games.

Atari 50: The Anniversary Celebration Expanded Edition will be available for PlayStation, Xbox, Switch, and PC. The standard edition will cost $39.99, while the physical Switch version will offer a Steelbook version for $49.99. The Switch Steelbook version includes exclusive extras like a replica of Al Alcorn’s business card, Atari 2600 art cards, and miniature arcade marquee signs.

Existing Atari 50 owners can look forward to purchasing the add-on content, although Atari has not disclosed the pricing details yet.
