It's been a long time since Atari was a dominant force in video games. The company rarely makes an impression on the industry these days, but there's no questioning the impact it had on the medium's formative years. Soon, players will be able to relive its glory days from the 1970s and 80s through the Atari Vault, a collection of 100 retro games available via Steam. It's being developed by Code Mystics and will feature titles such as Asteroids, Centipede, Missile Command, Tempest and Warlords. They won't be simple ports though, thanks to the addition of online and local multiplayer, Steam controller support and Steam leaderboards.

There's no word yet on pricing, but it'll launch sometime this Spring. If you've been yearning to play some Atari classics, or want to brush up on your video game history, this could be an easy and legal way to do so.
