Atari Vault is an upcoming service that will make it possible for gamers to sit down and enjoy some of the classic 1970s and 1980s games on the modern gaming access system that is Steam.

Developed by Code Mystics, the Atari Vault package will include such classics as Centipede, Asteroids, Missile Command and Warlords. These classic games will be supplemented with modern gaming features including online play, local multiplayer capability, controller support and leaderboard link-ups to get your competitive juices flowing.

Atari Vault is an example of a growing practice in gaming, which is to take classic and old-school games and revisit them using modern technology, something that will offer nostalgic appeal to slightly older gamers and a trip to the past for the next generation of young gaming enthusiasts.
