In preparation for PC and Xbox cross play, ATLAS is updating with massive wipes and adjustments ahead of time.

The biggest details include,
  • ATLAS will launch into Xbox One’s Game Preview next month.    

  • ATLAS will be available for digital download on the 8th of October 2019    

  • It will launch Day One with crossplay support allowing Steam and Xbox to play together in the same gigantic world.    

  • Complete re-bindable keyboard and mouse support for Xbox players ensures full game parity and an even playing field for all players    

  • Optional single-player and private session modes, which also makes use of the new procedural “Wild Pirate Camp” system    

  • There will be simultaneous updates and content pushes for both Xbox and PC ensuring the delivery of the same experience for Pathfinders on both platforms    

  • We’re working on getting Unofficial servers setup for Xbox Day One with Nitrado, where cross-platform can be enabled or disabled (in any direction so PC or Xbox player servers only)    

A network wipe is coming to, “ensure the smoothest possible game experience,” on September 28 at 12a EST. A permanent relaunch of NA PvP will take place after. And after that, all other networks will be launched on October 8.

The latest version launch brings with it,

  • New world map with improved biome layout (and a new biome type)    

  • Over 70 new core island templates, and many polish improvements to existing islands    

  • Over 20 new cosmetics, and sail cosmetics    

  • Improved client and server performance    

  • Full Gamepad support    

  • "Wild Pirate Camps" option for singleplayer and non-dedicated sessions (enabled by default): take over each island across the ATLAS by attacking and claiming procedural enemy pirate camps, guarded by cannons, pirates wielding all sorts of weapons, and even powerful pirate ships!    

  • New Multi-shot Hydra Pistol    

  • Cats (with hats!)
