Okay, galaxy explorers, welcome aboard the Equinox in Ubisoft’s upcoming sci-fi themed game Starlink: Battle for Atlas. The publisher has finally shared a bit more about the game’s storyline. Don’t worry, there are no major spoilers here. You are part of a crew of the Equinox, assembled to put a stop to Forgotten Legion, led by the ruthless Grax. He means to conquer the universe, and being a hero and all that, you and your crew are the only ones who can get in his way. We get a glimpse of the Equinox crew, as well as Grax, the villain you’ll be facing off against. The Starlink Battle for Atlas story trailer reveals more:
Earlier this month we discovered just how the gameplay mechanics work. Players will be able to create their own unique ship models, as well as customize their entire fleet and pilots. In addition, exploration plays an important role. It was revealed that your ship can move seamlessly through the Atlas Star System, and that your crew may land and explore planets.
Every planet you land on is unique and boasts its own ecosystem and wildlife. Traversing these new environments is not as easy as you’d think. Sometimes the planets can be extremely hostile, so you’re crew will have to handle it as best they can. Also, whatever you do in the game has consequences and will impact the world around you. When you engage in combat, you can expect your foes to be smart and well-prepared.
Yeah, is saving the galaxy ever easy?
Starlink: Battle for Atlas is going to be released for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Switch on October 16, 2018.
Looks mighty promising, this one. Could Starlink be your cup of tea? Let us know in the comments below.
