The launch trailer for Starlink: Battle for Atlas gives us a sense of what the game’s narrative is.
In the trailer we meet characters seemingly zipped away from modern Earth, with its social media and ‘Gram and Likes, to a distant galaxy trapped in the middle of a war. Players will pilot star ships (thanks to some nifty Toys to Life modularity) to take on the Forgotten Legion, a dark empire full of robots and controlled by the evil Grax, hellbent on planetary domination.
The game launches on PS4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch on October 16. The Switch version includes a Star Fox tie-in.
