Starlink: Battle for Atlas is set to release for multiple platforms in October, and now the Electronic Entertainment Rating Board has released their official rating for the game. The game ended up getting an E10+ rating, which was due to Fantasy Violence. As always, a brief overview was provided to elaborate on the rating.
The following is the complete ESRB rating for the game:
“This is an action-adventure game in which players follow interstellar pilots battling a robot menace in order to liberate a star system. As players explore alien planet environments, they can collect resources, perform quests, and fight enemies using their spaceships. Ships shoot lasers, missiles, and fantastical weapons (e.g., ice attachment, Fury Cannon) at robot enemies; damage is indicated by light flashes, floating hit points, and large explosions. Players can also engage in dogfight sequences in space; some of these fights can be frenetic and involve dozens of enemy ships.”
The Ubisoft website says the following about the game:
“The development team behind Starlink: Battle for Atlas started with a mission a few years ago: to build something new, something creative, and something “out there.” As it happens, “out there” is an open-world, outer-space, multi-planet adventure that involves a physical replica of an in-game starship that sits on your controller, and comes equipped with swappable, modular parts – enabling you to adapt to nearly any in-game scenario on the fly. But long before Starlink got there, the development team was back on Earth figuring out how they could grow the idea that began their original mission into the massive space saga it is now.”
Starlink: Battle for Atlas will launch for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch on October 16th, and is developed by Ubisoft Montreal.
