Starlink Battle for Atlas Video Game Xbox One

Starlink: Battle for Atlas game on the Xbox One is a thrilling space adventure battle for tweens, teens, and adults. With seven planets to choose from, the Star Map is massive and is Ubisoft’s largest open world to date.

In order to experience the game play, Best Buy and Ubisoft sent us the Starter Pack, Weapons Kit with Crusher and Shredder Mk.2, Pilot Kit with Levi McCray, and Starship Pack with Lance, Imploder, and Hunter Hakka.

The Starter Pack is the only item needed to play the game. Of course there are additional kits and packs you can purchase to enhance game play, but these are not required.

The Starter Pack includes the game disk, poster, pilot Mason Rana, Zenith ship, controller mount, Flamethrower, Shredder, and Frost Barrage. The last three items are weapons that can be switched out on the ship to customize your game play.

The controller mount allows your ship to mount to the Xbox One controller. The ship does not cover the game play controls or any buttons on the controller but simply hovers above your hands. When the game is playing, the engine on the ships light up which is a pretty cool effect.

After playing for just a few minutes, it was apparent that this game is really fun to play. Flying through space and around the planet gives you plenty of opportunity to explore the planets, life forms, and aliens.

The basis of the game play consists of pilots exploring the planets on their quest to explore the stars. Upon beginning the game you are greeted with the following message:

[quote]After making contact with an alien that crashed on Earth, astrophysicist Victor St. Grand secretly recruited a team of pilots to explore the stars. He named the alien Judge, and called the team the Starlink Initiative. Aboard their NOVA powerd mothership, the team arrives in the Atlas Star System seeking answers about Judge’s orgins…[/quote]

The ships are fun to switch out, along with the pilots, and the weapons. Instead of just selecting these items on your screen, gamers physically switch them out on the controller mount. For those who like hands on play, this helps enhance game play. You can switch the pilots, the weapons, and the wings of the ship to customize your very own design for flight.

While the Starter Pack is the only item required to play this game, it is likely your gamer will want to expand their team with additional pilots, ships, and weapons.
