Atlas game release time UPDATE: Wildcard post Twitter Early Access launch news

Today might finally be the day we see the new Atlas game is released by Studio Wildcard.

Having been delayed several times this month, it appears the development team are in a position to push servers live.

After a series of last-minute delays earlier this week, Studio Wildcard has shared plans on Twitter that they are building toward a release this weekend.

In a new post, Studio Wildcard provided some background on when this might happen.

And it’s fair to say that another delay is always possible, based on what has been shared.

"Pathfinders, we expect early streaming of ATLAS to start this evening at approx 9:00 PM PST," the message from Studio Wildcard reads.

“Following that, the game will be ready for full Early Access Launch tomorrow by noon PST. We'll keep you updated should there be any changes.

“Thank you for your patience and support," reads a Studio Wildcard tweet."When we have a precise time window, we'll let you know.

And in a series of follow-up tweets, the Ark Survival Evolved developer revealed that their development team is now focused on launching live servers.

“Pathfinders, we've pushed the Streamer Branch live and are currently in the process of redeploying the network,” the Twitter post adds.

“We're going to be working on the Early Access release candidate now. Thanks guys! We hope you enjoy the streams. We'll be watching.”

A Studio Wildcard recently posted another message, confirming that the Atlas release is still being planned for around 8pm in the UK.

That would mean servers launching for everyone on Saturday, December 22.

“We know you guys have a lot of questions and we will be answering them and working with you throughout Early Access & beyond,” the post reads.

“We plan to be very iterative with the community but right now our focus is on launch and ensuring that it's smooth sailing for all pathfinders

“And for those wondering, we are still on track for the Noon PST release.

“We will keep you updated if there are any changes, if you haven't seen me tweet in a bit, that's cause there's nothing new to share. Looking forward to having you all in.”

WHAT IS ATLAS?

Atlas will be an expansion on Studio Wildcard’s original survival breakout success, ARK Survival Evolved.

It will share a lot in common with the game, including being able to build bases and tame animals.

However, Studio Wildcard has decided to do away with individual servers and plan to host Atlas much in the same way as EVE Online.

Studio Wildcard says that Atlas will host up to 40,000 players exploring the same Globe simultaneously.

The game will initially revolve around ship-building and pirate warfare, although new elements are expected to be added over time.

“Start small then expand your spheres of influence from a small island, up to an unstoppable pirate empire that spans across the oceans," reads the official description.

"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."

All eyes will be on Atlas on Steam Early Access to see if Studio Wildcard has another breakout hit on their hands.
