The launch date of Star Atlas, one of the most anticipated AAA games on the Web3, is still unknown. However, there's no need to wait long to experience the metaverse since a limited demo of the Solana game just went live on Epic Games Store.

During the 426LIVE event on Sept. 29, the development team gave players a preview of what to expect when playing the game.

“We’re really excited to finally be able to give users a taste of the Star Atlas metaverse and start to bring this immersive world to life,” Michael Wagner, Co-Founder of Star Atlas and CEO of ATMTA, Inc., said in a press release. “We’re also extremely honored to be the first triple-A quality blockchain game available on the Epic Games Store, and we can’t wait to see web3 gaming become mainstream.”

Owners of the Star Atlas Non-Fungible Token (NFT) can now explore a 3D environment and view their NFT ships and vehicles. In addition, holders will be able to use the full Showroom in Q4 2022, including multiplayer capabilities, chat functionality, and takeoff and landing capabilities.

You can obtain an access key if you join the metaverse, select a faction, and enroll your ship in your faction's fleet. Here are more details:

More Updates

In addition to the showroom demo, there are other updates from the project team:

  1. The team has released the Foundation Software Development Kit (F-KIT), so other developers can develop Unreal Engine 5-based games for Solana. In addition, according to Wagner, other builders could use the kit to extend to other networks, like Ethereum.
  2. The ATMTA also announced Atlas Locking, a new feature in the Star Atlas interface for Decentralized Autonomous Organizations (DAOs). Now players can lock their Atlas tokens for a maximum of five years.
  3. The project will also release CORE, an episodic graphic novel introducing the Star Atlas metaverse, lore, and characters to an international audience. The graphic novel will be released on the project’s website and in the Showroom at a later date.
