During today’s #UBIE3 conference, Ubisoft Toronto revealed a new space exploration title with features very similar to franchises such as Skylanders and Lego Dimensions. In the newly-announced Starlink: Battle For Atlas, players will be able to assemble their in-game ship using physical and digital pieces. To get a better idea of what I’m talking about, check out the announcement trailer below:
After seeing the official announcement trailer one big question lingered in my mind: What will these pieces cost? Players of Skylanders or Lego Dimensions can attest that franchises with physical game content can get rather pricey, with character packs ranging anywhere from $10 to $40.
During the brief assembly shots in the trailer, there looks to be at least 6 parts that make up a ship, including a pilot, wings, a mounting base that attaches to the controller, and weapons. Mixing and matching all of these components to have a variety of ships to play could fetch a pretty penny.
With a release window of Fall 2018, there will probably be quite a wait to hear official pricing on ship packages and parts, but it will be interesting to see what price point they come up with. Starlink: Battle of Atlas has been confirmed for Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and Playstation 4.
