Ubisoft’s conference brought a space game, one that may look familer to those that have played Watch Dogs 2 as the game that was “leaked” in that one. Today we got a full reveal of Starlink: Battle for Atlas.

The game showed space ships flying around in space, shooting other ships before moving to a planet to work as hover crafts. More interesting was the quick cuts between the game play, which showed someone actually building starships on top of a game controller and the changes being reflected back in the game. It appears Starlink is a new Toys to Life game.


After this producer Matthew Rose took the stage to talk about Starlink. He talked about how the game allows you to take control of a team of star pilots and took place in an open world. He confirmed you would be using physical starship pieces to play the game, but you could also get digital versions of the pieces if you weren’t interested in the physical part.

Starlink: Battle for Atlas will be coming out in Fall 2018 for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch. No PC version was mentioned at this time.
