Atari Vault will bring 100 Atari classics to Steam

Atari fans can indulge their nostalgia for the early days of gaming soon on Steam.

Remember when owning an Atari was a big deal? Are you a huge fan of retro games? You'll soon be able to sate your cravings for old-school titles -- all in one single games package on Steam, called Atari Vault.

Atari Vault will feature 100 of the classic system's most popular games, including Centipede, AsteroidsTempestWarlords, and Missile Command. It isn't clear yet which editions will be released with the final product.

While Atari has not specified an exact release date, it's reported to release this spring, so the wait won't be long. It's also going to be compatible with the Steam Controller, as its unique touchpads can simulate the trackball that was used in so many of the classic titles.

Attendees of PAX South in San Antonio will be able to catch a sneak peek at Atari Vault later this month.

This isn't the first time Steam has released a package of games for a retro system -- in March of 2011, the Sega Genesis Classics Collection hit the Steam store.

We don't yet know which titles will make the cut. Do you have a childhood favorite you're hoping to see? Let us know in the comments!
