Customizable Plastic Model Space-Sim “Starlink: Battle for Atlas” Revealed

Ubisoft has announced Starlink: Battle Atlas.

The game will launch sometime in Fall of 2018 across PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and the Nintendo Switch. Featured above, you can view the game’s announcement trailer.

Players will be able to customize plastic models of spaceships and scan them into the game, providing numerous options of how you can defeat your enemies and traverse the game world.

Here’s a rundown on the game, via Ubisoft:


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.

FULLY CUSTOMIZE YOUR STARSHIP: THE CHOICE IS YOURS
Mix and match pilots, hulls, wings, and weapons to assemble your ideal starship with an unprecedented level of customization and creativity. Changes to your physical ship instantly appear in-game allowing you to immediately jump into the battle.

EXPLORE AN ENTIRE STAR SYSTEM
Travel seamlessly through the exotic alien worlds of the Atlas Star System. Each one of its planets has its own identity, ecosystem and wildlife. Be careful, as space is a hostile environment and will present many challenges. The world evolves depending on your actions and your choices. Everything you do has an impact on your journey, and enemies will react and fight back intelligently and take over the star system if you don’t stop them.

GET CREATIVE IN COMBAT
Build your unique play style. Experiment with different pilot abilities, weapon types, and status effects to discover and unleash devastating combos upon your enemies and overcome deadly challenges.

    I could get on board if the models double as pieces in a traditional table top game. Toys to life isn’t a shit genre. It just suffers from lowest common denominator market pandering; namely children whose parents are financially fit & absent in their responsibilities as parents.

    So a space sim where I have to grind for and spend REAL dollars to get parts for my ship? As amusing as this is, no thanks. I’ll stick to Warhammer for my plastic crack addiction.
