Synopsis :

"Missile Command: Recharged takes the classic arcade game and adds several layers of oomph and pizzaz. This revamped take on the classic introduces more power-ups, new enemies, and a suite of challenges that limit the number of counter-defenses at your disposal - not to mention co-op across all game modes! An amazing new soundtrack from the incomparable Megan McDuffee perfectly complements the gameplay and adds depth and variety. Of course, you could also test your skills against players across the globe in the 32 challenge levels or the classic endless Arcade mode.

“Wait, I thought there was already a Missile Command: Recharged” you say. Yes, that is accurate. Missile Command was the very first title in the Recharged Series. Consider that first effort a pilot … we did. After launching six more Recharged titles, all with more content and features than the original Missile Command: Recharged, we decided to go back to the original and update it with everything we have learned along the way.

Anyone who purchased the original ($2.99) can upgrade to the new version for $6.99."

An article from Digital Trends on the updated version of Missile Command: Recharged (2022):

https://www.digitaltrends.com/gaming/missile-command-recharged-re-release-november/

Some choice quotes from Atari CEO Wade Rosen:

“The more Recharged games we released, the farther we pushed them, adding challenges, boss battles, creating more of a progression and storyline,” Atari CEO Wade Rosen tells Digital Trends. “The Recharged Series has evolved. When we look back at Missile Command: Recharged, we see an opportunity to revisit the game and apply everything we had learned over the last six Recharged releases to one of our favorite classics.”

“I think people are craving a return to that kind of gameplay,” Rosen says. “That doesn’t mean that there isn’t a place for epic campaigns that require 100 hours to complete. But I sense that there is also a need for games that allow you to jump into a session with a friend, or a family member, and enjoy, no matter if you play for 20 minutes or two hours.”

Note:  I decided to break this out from the original Missile Command: Recharged topic thread as it is truly a different game.  Does anyone else think they should have gone with Super Missile Command: Recharged or Missile Command: Recharged Deluxe for the sake of disambiguation?

From what I gather, owners of the original can keep the game but it will no longer be available for sale.

Also, the mobile versions will not get an update. The original was initially mobile free-to-play. This enhanced versionis console and PC only.

From Atari staff via their Discord on the changes:

PSA Atarians: This is the skinny on Missile Command 🚀 🚀  

1. On October 16th, the current iteration of Missile Command: Recharged will be removed from all console stores and the new Missile Command will be available for pre-order.  If you want to play the old version, then make sure you purchase it before October 16th.  (If you do, you will still get the discount I'm about to mention) 

2. Those of you who own the current version of Missile Command will be reached out to and offered a discount on the new game equal to the price you paid for it.  This equals out to around 30% off.  Full price, the new Missile Command will be $10, so you'll pay like $7. 

3. If you have the current version and would like to keep it, you may do so.  Even if you delete the old game, you can still redownload it so long as you purchased it before.  You don't need to delete the old version to obtain the new version and it won't be removed from your personal library on the 16th or after 

4. What's the difference between the versions? New and better visuals, more content, and extra gameplay.  It's a very similar game but now brought to the standards of the other Recharged titles 

5. There seems to be confusion about the name change and some of the devs just want to clarify that this isn't a "second version" or sequel (even though V2 is a helpful way to discuss it right now before the switch has been made) it is a complete game replacement.  The name has been kept the same because the older version will no longer exist except for the people who already have it) and only the Oct. 16 game will be supported in the store and with updates going forward.  

This is all the official info, if you heard conflicting information about the discount or anything else, it's incorrect unless it's this ^^^
