ATLAS: Just an ARK Re-skin? (Developers Getting Lazy...)

in games •  6 months ago 

From the creators of Ark: Survival Evolved: ATLAS

Made by Instinct Games, ATLAS is a survival MMO game based arround pirates.

ATLAS: The ultimate survival MMO of unprecedented scale with 40,000+ simultaneous players in the same world. Join an endless adventure of piracy & sailing, exploration & combat, roleplaying & progression, settlement & civilization-building, in one of the largest game worlds ever! Explore, Build, Conquer!

Apparently ATLAS is the first game from Instinct Games since Ark.

Ark: Survival Evolved was a very anticipated game from all around though it didn't live up to its expectations.

Since this will be the first game since Ark, it better be good!
(At least we hope so)

Now... about the LAUNCH

The launch of this game was a bit messy. It used to be "ready to launch" in early access for about a week or two, but it still hasn't been released yet (despite the original launch date of Dec. 11)

Now, if that wasn't bad enough just wait until you hear about the Twitch Livestream.
On Dec. 19 the Developers of ATLAS set up a Twitch livestream counting down until the release of ATLAS. There were over tens of thousands of viewers.
Unfortunately for them, nothing happened at the end of the countdown. All they did was respond with this tweet:

And, Finally... The game itself

Let's adress the image above, this is taken directly from the developer's page.

If you look closely you can see a very close resemblance in the graphics. It almost looks like 2 screenshots from the same game. If I say so myself, thats a bit of a giveaway.

Also, according to these Steam reviews, the game itself is running from Ark:

Unsuprisingly a secret that returns to the ARK menu.

Now, this is some pretty good evidence right here.

The graphics

Same Developer (Ark loosing playerbase)

Reused game files

Hidden menu that returns to the Ark screen

Laziness, and rushed development

If I were you, I would stray from buying Atlas for a bit (even if you want to get it), as the price will (most likely) drop dramatically.
