If you thought that Sea of Thieves was going to be the only pirate game for Xbox One players, then you couldn't have been more wrong. This October, the massive, persistent sandbox pirate game, Atlas, will make the jump to Xbox One.
No exact details on how the servers will work with Atlas on Xbox One have been shared just yet, but we'll definitely be keeping an eye out for more information. Like Atlas on PC, the Xbox One version of the game appears to offer the same type of persistent multiplayer, as well as the basic cores that have made Atlas such a unique pirate adventure.
Perhaps the most intriguing thing about Atlas on Xbox, though is the fact that the game will support cross-platform capabilities. During an interview after the reveal, the Atlas developers also revealed that the game will feature cross play support at launch. Not sure what Atlas is exactly? According to the Steam page:
From the creators of ARK: Survival Evolved comes ATLAS - a massively multiplayer first-and-third-person fantasy pirate adventure, now also supporting offline singleplayer and non-dedicated private session modes on the same huge world! ATLAS hosts up to 40,000 players exploring the same Globe simultaneously, with an unprecedented scale of cooperation and conflict! Stake your claim in this endless open world as you conquer territory, construct ships, search for buried treasure, assemble forts, plunder settlements and hire crew to join your powerful growing armada. Start small then expand your spheres of influence from a small island, up to an unstoppable pirate empire that spans across the oceans. Wage battle against enemy fleets as you singlehandedly command large ships of war using the captaining system (or divide up to the responsibilities among your trusted lieutenants) or take control of any weapon directly with your own character. Dive deep into the briny water to explore permanent sunken wrecks and recover salvage, unearth the loot from procedurally generated Treasure Maps and challenge zones, or complete challenging main questlines. Team up with other aspiring adventurers and sail into the vast ocean to discover new lands rich with region-specific elements, tame exotic natural and mythical creatures, raid forgotten tombs, confront powerful ancient gods and even build and administer your own colonies, cities, and civilizations to dominate the ATLAS in this ultimate quest for fortune and glory!
