The expansion will be made available exclusively to the Nintendo Switch version of the game, though Starlink will also launch on PS4 and Xbox One.
During Ubisoft's E3 presentation, the publisher released a new trailer for their Toys-to-Life sci-fi title, Starlink: Battle for Atlas. "We're thrilled to introduce Starlink: Battle for Atlas, the first new property created from the ground up at Ubisoft Toronto".
In related news, online listings for the game have revealed a download of 15GB via a wireless connection will be required in order to play, even if you own a physical copy. Packs with pilots will be $7.99, weapons $9.99, and spaceships (with a starship, pilot, and weapon) for $24.99. Each ship, weapon, and character has unique abilities and attributes to consider, so you'll want to be able to swap pieces in and out as you go.
In terms of gameplay, Atlas is a space dogfighting game that takes place in a huge open world.
Star Fox in Starlink!
Ubisoft confirmed Starlink: Battle for Atlas as one of the games at E3 2018 well before the show, so its appearance wasn't a surprise. "We believe the Atlas open star system is a flawless playground for Fox to explore and hope players will too".
