E3 2018 is shaping up great for Ubisoft, as they have announced that Starlink: Battle for Atlas, their all-new action-adventure game developed by Ubisoft Toronto, will be available October 16 of this year.
This open world space saga features modular toy technology that allows players to assemble and customize real-world physical starships. Each modular component and pilot attached to the starship appears instantly in-game and players can experiment with different pilot abilities, weapons and ships to unleash devastating combos upon their enemies.

The modular toys and dynamic combat mechanics in Starlink: Battle for Atlas let players explore multiple ways to achieve objectives and approach any obstacle or enemy, driven by their own imagination and creativity. Alongside the new way to play, Starlink: Battle for Atlas offers open-world gameplay, spanning a full star system that players can explore with total freedom.
Built from the ground up in the Snowdrop engine, the game allows seamless travel through and around the exotic alien worlds of the Atlas Star System, teeming with life and unique challenges across seven different planets. Players’ actions and choices will impact their journey and no two player experiences will be alike. Enemies will react and fight back intelligently – taking over the star system if the player does nothing to stop them. The fate of Atlas rests in your hands.
