One of the reveals at The Game Awards was a new game from the creators of ARK: Survival Evolved
, Studio Wildcard. Developed by their sister studio, Grapeshot Games, Atlas
is a massively multiplayer pirate game reminiscent of one of this year's divisive big releases
The game promises ship and fort building, crew hiring, settlement plundering, creature slaying, treasure hunting and wave riding. You'll be able to go from a tatty aspiring upstart to a ruling pirate lord as part up to 40,000 other players all online simultaneously in the 45,000 square kilometre world.
Releasing on Steam Early Access next week, Atlas
will be setting sail on Xbox One in 2019 as part of Game Preview.
We don't have them yet, but we'll publish a story as soon as we pick up the Atlas achievements.
