Starlink: Battle For Atlas is gearing up to launch on PS4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch on October 16. This game lets you pilot a space ship through a massive solar system, landing on and exploring seven varied planets aswarm with enemies. The game itself is like a family-friendly No Man’s Sky mixed with Star Fox (in fact, the Switch version even has a Star Fox crossover). It also features a whole toys-to-life aspect that lets you change out parts of your in-game ship just by swapping pieces of a toy line that launches alongside the game.
If you’re ready to pre-order Starlink: Battle for Atlas, you may have a few questions about how it all works and what you need to buy. You can relax and read on because we have you covered below.
