While ATLAS was meant to be released on Steam Early Access yesterday, Studio Wildcard and Grapeshot Games have announced that the game has been delayed yet again. According to the press release, the game will finally go live on Steam this Friday, December 21st, and in order to celebrate this announcement, the teams have released a new extended gameplay trailer.
Developed by the creators of the dinosaur survival adventure ARK: Survival Evolved, ATLAS will host up to 40,000 players exploring the same globe simultaneously, leading to an unprecedented scale of encounters, conflict and exploration.
In ATLAS, players must stake their claim in this massive world as they construct custom ships, seek out buried treasure, siege and conquer fortresses, plunder wealthy merchants and recruit their own crew to join their powerful Armada in the ultimate quest for fortune and glory.

While he is a die-hard PC gamer, his gaming roots can be found on consoles. John loved – and still does – the 16-bit consoles, and considers SNES to be one of the best consoles. Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2.
