    Ahoy Pathfinders!

     

    We appreciate all the feedback we have received, whether written by hardened sea dogs or those still getting their feet wet. We’re monitoring the waves in the Forums, Discord, Steam, Reddit, Youtube, Twitter, and Facebook. Even when we hit rocky shores, you’re there mannin’ the sails.  We’re excited to answer some questions that have popped up during our new journey in ATLAS Season 4: The Maelstrom and we hope you’re looking forward to all the new content that will be released in the coming months, like Trade Winds, Farms, Warehouses, 'n more!

     

    Below are some questions & answers regarding the future development of ATLAS, straight from the seahorse’s mouth:

     

         :anchor: Developer Q&A :anchor:

     

    Question: I guess my main question would be about new PVP official servers. When you claim an island, is it safe for you or is it possible to be raided? I don't mind PVP at sea, but base raids suck. Just curious. Thanks.

     

    Answer: Atlas is intended to be a game about pirates, and while our land-based combat is deep and rich, the new energy behind Atlas is to bring that depth and richness to sea as well.  More interesting interactions with the oceans and ships is where we are pointed and we'll be making a host of changes to drive more player energy in that direction. Look for our future development to lean towards creating opportunities for greater rewards and higher risks on the water with more opportunities for opt-in conflict.

     

    Question: So, I believe that this is the first time that you've acknowledged "seasons". Are you guys considering regular wipes to ATLAS PVP? In many hardcore PVPers opinions, there should be, in order to keep the game fresh. It seems to drop off about 3-4 months in. Maybe a server to test out having regular wipes?

     

    Answer: We agree that it's important for the health of a survival game to have energetic competition over resources, but we want to have our cake and eat it too.  So, we are looking for ways to keep these struggles fresh without completely tossing out player progress.  We think that coming at it from both sides and wiping when necessary while at the same time helping players hold on to their progress will lead to a vibrant environment of continuous conflict without stagnation.

     

    Question: Will ATLAS be available on PS4?

    Answer: For sure, we want Atlas to be accessible on as many platforms as possible.  We are considering whether that means trying to go to PS4 at the end of its life cycle or holding out for the PS5, which is not far off.  Until that decision is made, we are focusing on bringing all the new features to our existing players.

    :wheel:

    We hope that answered some of your lingering questions.  We have many more questions out there in the deep, and we plan to have Ask a Pirate Day regularly. Feel free to drop questions here or on our other social channels, and your question might get picked the next time around. 🙂

    ...

    My biggest question is, when will the developers actually start listening to the community ideas and wants and needs? 

    probably only once the ppl who play the game and make massive mods for it get brought into the company like some did in ark.

    cause clearly they dont play they're game, or they'd know how broken it is.  and even if they do play it, it's probably only surface level testing, eg: "it didnt crash, ship it!"

    I would really like to see it come on PS4 though... I don't think people abandon it when ps5 comes out, which not everyone would be able to afford right off the bat. Plus it would possibly also take another while for it to even be ready for ps5 when the console is out.

    LFOOKINMAO!!!

    As promised, I Aquagoth, have checked in after 3 months to see the progress on the greatest idea for a video game of all time. I am not disappoint.

    3 fabricated questions were asked and answered in the first post. "Ask the devs anything!" you said. Not even 1 question was answered after your fake 3 question blitz. Absolutely fookin' hilarious. Grapeshot/Wildcard is a complete joke.

    I am so bitter, because I honestly love Atlas. I love being a pirate on the high seas. I've been waiting for a great pirate game for years, and I thought this was the one. But to watch you imbeciles destroy it like you are really hurts. I don't know how many personnel you have on the case, but I still really feel like I myself, without any current knowledge of game developing or code, could do what you guys do every couple of months.

    Welp, 3 more months will put me at October, beginning of November. I'll meet you then with yet another post ridiculing you.

    Time is ticking, but they are busy saying things like this:

    This was stated with the update that put ironwoon on one h11 island.
