‘Starlink: Battle for Atlas’ Gets New Gameplay Trailer for E3

Ubisoft showed off more of “Starlink” with a trailer at E3 on Monday.

Starlink” is Ubisoft’s foray into the “toys-to-life” market, and will involve players building and customizing toy starships that mount directly to standard gamepads for the Nintendo Switch, PS4, and Xbox One. The game will feature split-screen multiplayer for up to two players and seven “massive unique planets” to explore.

“As you explore the Atlas Star System, you’ll do so with a physical ship clipped to your controller,” Ubisoft explained in a blog post. “Using ‘Smart Building Technology,’ you’ll be able to immediately swap out parts on the ship — including wings, weapons, pilots, and even the starship hull itself — and see them change in-game to meet the shifting demands of your situation as you experiment with different combinations, weapons, and status effects. It’ll all come in handy as you’re dealing with the evil forces of a warlord named Grax, while also searching for allies to help you survive in a hostile system.”

The game launches on Oct. 16.

Ubisoft held its E3 press conference on June 11 at 1 p.m. PT. The 2018 Electronic Entertainment Expo takes place this week, from June 12 to June 14, at the Los Angeles Convention Center. Twitch’s official coverage of the event began in earnest Sunday afternoon.
