E3 2018 – Starlink: Battle for Atlas Revealed – Ubisoft Press Event

While most companies are ditching the toys to life genre of games, Ubisoft Toronto is planning on embracing it with their newest title, Starlink: Battle for Atlas, which will be available this October on Xbox One, PS4, and Nintendo Switch. The team at Ubisoft went all out during the event today, even bringing up a Nintendo legend to detail some unique features coming to the Switch version of the game: the ability to play the entire game as Fox!

From Ubisoft PR,

The modular toys and dynamic combat mechanics in Starlink: Battle for Atlas let players explore multiple ways to achieve objectives and approach any obstacle or enemy, driven by their own imagination and creativity. Alongside the innovative new way to play, Starlink: Battle for Atlas offers open-world gameplay, spanning a full star system that players can explore with total freedom. Built from the ground up in the Snowdrop engine, the game allows seamless travel through and around the exotic alien worlds of the Atlas Star System, teeming with life and unique challenges across seven different planets. Players’ actions and choices will impact their journey and no two player experiences will be alike. Enemies will react and fight back intelligently – taking over the star system if the player does nothing to stop them. The fate of Atlas rests in your hands.

Players will be able to customize starships using a base which attahces to the controllers themselves. These starships will instantly appear within the game. How players choose to customize their ships could be the difference between success and failure during certain battles.

Ubisoft is really thinking outside the box with this one, and we are looking forward to taking it for a spin when it arrives on console in October. Here are a few of the pricing details:
