E3 2017: Starlink: Battle for Atlas announced

Posted on June 13, 2017

Announced at Ubiosoft’s press conference was a brand new space exploration and planetary exploration game, Starlink: Battle for Atlas.

“In Starlink: Battle for Atlas, you’re part of a group of heroic interstellar pilots, dedicated to free the Atlas star system from the Forgotten Legends, an evil robot force. Starlink: Battle for Atlas offers a whole new gameplay experience: build your own modular Starship model, mount it on your controller, and take part in epic space combats. Equip your model with different parts and your Starship changes in game in real time. Assemble your fleet, mix and match your pilots, Starships and weapons to create your own play style and defeat the enemy.” – Reads the YouTube video description.

Check out the debut gameplay trailer.

With fully customisable ships, seamless intergalactic travel, and hostile worlds to explore, Starlink may be one to look out for. I’m not quite sure how those toy ships impact gameplay, hopefully not much, but more info is surely on its way.

Starlink: Battle for Atlas will be available Fall 2018 (or Spring 2018 for us in the Southern Hemisphere).
