Players who have been yearning for more of Starlink are now able to get into Starlink: Battle for Atlas on the Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. But it’s not only the digital game that is now available for your enjoyment. Ubisoft has launched a way for gamers to turn their controller into a physical representation of a starship, thanks to some modular toy technology. By customizing your starship controller, you can immediately affect your in-game starship as well.
I have to admit that I’m not sure how practical it will be to hold a physical starship in your hands while playing, but the cool factor is off the charts!
“Starlink: Battle for Atlas is a project born from our team’s passion for space and adventure games – it’s a game we imagined playing as kids, and we are thrilled to share it with players of all ages today,” said Matthew Rose, Producer at Ubisoft Toronto. “We can’t wait to see how players will use their imaginations to combine wings, weapons and pilots to create the starship of their dreams to help them defeat the Forgotten Legion and save the Atlas star system.”
Starlink starship components and pilots are all compatible with each other, with the exception of the Arwing Starship and Fox McCloud Pilot which are Nintendo Switch exclusives. The components allow players to take full advantage of their imagination to creatively mix and match parts to adapt and overcome any challenge they will face in the game. The modular toys and dynamic combat mechanics let players explore multiple ways to achieve objectives and approach any obstacle by experimenting with different pilot abilities, weapons, and ships, unleashing devastating combos upon their enemies.
Players can start building their collection with the Starlink: Battle for Atlas retail starter pack, which includes the game, one starship, one pilot, a variety of weapons, the Starlink controller mount, and a poster. The Nintendo Switch Starter Pack will also include the Arwing starship as well as the Fox McCloud pilot.
