Atlas, an open world survival MMO that will have 40,000 players in one concurrent world, looks like a very ambitious undertaking that is coming to PC and Xbox One.

The trailer featured fantastic creatures, massive beasts, first-person brawling, dual pistols, pirate ship combat, siege gameplay, underwater exploration, and a whole lot more. The developers state that it will be "1200x the size of a single Ark server."
