During Ubisoft’s E3 2018 media briefing, the studio announced a new action-adventure title called Starlink: Battle for Atlas. The game basically sees you assembling a custom starship mounted to your controller before launching into an interplanetary adventure. The game’s official description reads:
Lead a group of heroic interstellar pilots who use modular starships to mix and match their unique gear and skills on the fly. Travel the star system to unite the galaxy against villainous destructive forces.
The mantra of Starlink: Battle for Atlas is “Build. Battle. Win.” The game gives you the complete liberty to customize pilots, hulls, wings, and weapons in order to create a starship that you always dreamt of:
Mix and match pilots, hulls, wings, and weapons to build the starship of your dreams with an unprecedented level of customization and creativity. Changes to your physical starship are instantly reflected in your gameplay experience, allowing you to immediately jump into the battle.
Your pilots have unique abilities that you can use in order to gain an advantage in battle. Apart from that, you have different weapon combos to devastate your enemies. Starlink: Battle for Atlas features an open, living star system; allowing you to seamlessly travel through the seven exotic alien worlds of the Atlas Star System.
Starlink: Battle for Atlas is scheduled to release on Oct. 16, 2018 for PC, Xbox One, Playstation 4, and Nintendo Switch. Ubisoft also confirmed Starfox as one of the pilots who will be exclusive to Nintendo Switch.
