Atari Announces Centipede: Recharged

Atari is working in collaboration with Adamvision Studios and Sneaky Box Studios to bring Centipede: Recharged to the world. Old-time gamers will remember the original arcade game from the 80s as a great game that required speed, patience, and not just a little luck to play. This time, developers are bringing “sleek graphics, nostalgia, and time-tested gameplay”. Atari is planning to release the game for Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, and for PC via Steam and Epic Games Store.

Initiate insect extermination in this widescreen glow-up of one of the greatest arcade games of all time. The rules are the same as 1981: shoot the centipedes as they descend the playing field, and contend around the shot-blocking and path-altering mushrooms they leave behind. New to Centipede: Recharged are power-ups dropped by the spiders, such as explosive bullets, spread shots, and a devastating railgun.

Other features include:

  • Arcade mode in solo or simultaneous couch co-op
  • two dozen challenges to test bug shooting prowess
  • global leaderboards
  • 15 achievements
  • 80s-inspired electronic soundtrack
  • 4K resolution, 120 FPS on PS5 and XBSX/S, up to 240Hz on PC
