Starlink: Battle for Atlas Gameplay
According to the official website, the game uses physical, Skylanders-like Starship models that you mount onto your game controller for playing in the game world. The ships’ wings, hulls, weapons, and even pilots can be mixed and matched on the fly for different play styles and changes instantly appear in the game.
Players travel through an open, living star system with seven planets to explore. You can fly directly from a planet into space for more battles and then head to a different planet.
The game will include the Arwings from Star Fox, according to Ubisoft’s E3 2018 presentation. The Arwings will be a physical starship that you can play with in the game. Star Fox creator Shigeru Miyamoto himself came on stage to accept a prototype of the Arwing toy. The Star Fox content will be exclusive to the Nintendo Switch.
According to the official website, each ship has their own stats from speed to maneuverability and durability. Weapons include miniguns and missiles to more exotic weapons like the Frost Barrage which slows down opponents. Weapons can combo in different ways for more damage.
In addition to choosing ships, you’ll also be able to choose pilots from the spunky Calisto Chase D Silva to Fox McCloud himself. Each pilot has different abilities that you can use in battle.
