There have been many great discoveries at The Game Awards this year, including a new Far Cry game and Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3 for the Nintendo Switch. Another game unveiled at The Game Awards is a pirate game created by Ark: Survival Evolved developer named Atlas . Atlas is an Open World MMO and will be available on Steam next week.
As seen in the trailer below, Atlas resembles another pirate game released this year, Sea of Thieves which requires players to work together to dominate ships and fight against the environment and other teams in the game. From the trailer, it also seems that players can generally take to the streets, engage in bar-brawls, search for treasure, and dive. In Atlas players are encouraged to work together to build massive armadas and claim territory, eventually conquering the entire world.
The Atlas trailer also reveals crazy creatures that players will encounter in the game, such as: For example, a giant hammerhead shark, multi-headed and single-headed dragons, and a kind of fire demon at various locations throughout the game world. Atlas also offers the ability to hold 40,000 players on its open world map, which is about 1,200 times more than what the ARK: Survival server could hold, thus allowing the game Players with a lot of playing time can certainly deliver.
While Atlas will initially be available on Steam only, it will debut on consoles with the Xbox Preview program sometime in the future. Sea of Thieves was a great success among the players, surpassing Microsoft's sales expectations. For players who want to continue pirate life, hopefully Atlas will not disappoint.
Atlas will be available for early PC access on December 13, and will also be developed for Xbox One.
