  1. Edit (May 18th): Due to an unexpected issue, we’ve made the difficult decision to delay tonight’s patch to next Wednesday, May 25th @ 7PM PDT. We want to ensure the start of the new season is as smooth as possible. Thank you for your patience and understanding. Ahoy Pathfinders! The time has come for new adventures to begin again in the world of Atlas. While familiar, the seas have shifted and hold new mysteries and challenges for both new and old pathfinders alike. With the recent discovery of the Golden Age ruins, pathfinders will find themselves tested by new adversaries that will strike down the most experienced of pirates if not careful. Seven of these bosses now roam the lands waiting to unleash their might on any that dare to find them. Are you brave enough to take the challenge? There is also talk of an new unexplored region, shrouded in mystery, that may bring a new set of trials to pathfinders looking to unlock its secrets. Do not trust your senses in this eerie place for one false move may spell doom for you and your crew. The map itself has also undergone a few changes to make traversing the world a little easier. As always, with the new content, we are also continuing to fix many of the issues that have been reported by you, the community, and will continue to do so until we get it right. We want to say thank you to all the pathfinders that have provided feedback and suggestions and that continue to support us as we make gradual steps to make Atlas the best gameplay experience possible. With that said, the servers will go down May 18th at 7PM PDT and will undergo a few hours of maintenance. Barring any issues, we expect the servers to return and season nine to start around May 18th, 10PM PDT. We wish all the best luck in your new adventures and, of course, happy sailing! Released Patch Notes v543.0 Season 9 Patch Ahoy pathfinders! The tides of Atlas are shifting again. New exotic locales to explore and dangers to confront have emerged. New Content New Mini-Bosses of the Golden Age Ruins Seven new Mini-Bosses have been added. Each Golden Age Ruin island will now have its own boss to find and fight. Ancient Fire Elemental The first fire elemental ever to be created. An unknown, wicked deity possessed inflamed, volcanic rocks. It is rumored that all other fire elementals derive from this one. Found on the Golden Age Ruin island in A7 Elder Rock Elemental A Giant Rock Elemental that has seen the tides of the Atlas shift many times. He has finally arisen from the sulfurous land to destroy pathfinders who trespass on his grounds. Found on the Golden Age Ruin island in F4 Kekada A Deep Sea crab that invaded the surface long ago. Its docile nature was corrupted by the power stone contained on the island it is found on. Kekada now brutally crushes anything it can fit in its massive claws. Found on the Golden Age Ruin island in L7 Buwaya A cursed Crocodile that is only told about in myths originating from the Philippines. Legend says, those who fall victim to this monster are taken to the world of the spirits. Found on the Golden Age Ruin island in G8 Eber The Boar God. Even creatures have deities, and this one smells awful according to Pathfinders who have encountered it. They say it is a big, feral boar with rotting flesh and piercing eyes that roams the forest. Found on the Golden Age Ruin island in L3 Crystal Scorpion Legend of a mysterious scorpion that appears only in darkness that is drawn to dark energies. Found on the Golden Age Ruin island in M13 The Sentinel A cyclops creature tasked with protecting crystal entities.

Found in the Golden Age Ruin island in E1 Maw Waters A new region has been discovered! A brave, possibly foolish, Pathfinder followed the Ships of the Damned across the waters of Atlas. He returned with tales of a land shrouded in darkness and unnaturally thick fog, with creatures that seem to vanish or appear out of thin air, and eerie green fires. As proof of his findings he brought back a strange crystalline substance, soft to the touch yet somehow solid. His final notes state that any Pathfinder who ventures to these lands should not trust their eyes, as empty stretches of land may have hidden dangers. New Items Lantern of the Maw A special lantern that automatically appears on ships when they enter the Maw Waters region. Interact with the steering wheel to access the lanterns inventory, see current Essence value, and craft Solidified Essence. Fully fill your lantern to leave the Maw Waters region. How to gather Essence of the Maw and fill your Lantern There are several activities that will grant your lantern Essence of the Maw. With the exception of the Relic of the Maw all Essence is gathered on the ship the player enters on. Active Accumulation Destroy Ships of the Damned - Each ship destroyed will grant 10 Essence Destroy other players ships - Each ship destroyed will grant 25 Essence Obtain a Relic of the Maw - The Relic of the Maw is found in Flotsom and when consumed on a ship instantly fills that ship's lantern to full.

  3. ATLAS

    Pre-Wipe Teaser

    Ahoy Pathfinders! As we draw closer to a new patch and a new season, we know the excitement and anticipation is brewing for what's to come in only a couple weeks time. With each season, the opportunity to start fresh and take on new challenges on the open seas is something we celebrate. In the meantime, we have a few fun things planned to give you a small look at what's in store. See if you can guess what new adversaries are coming to Atlas! This fearsome creature may not be grumpy, but it definitely doesn't like pathfinders messing around where they're not supposed to be. One second, you and your crew may be scuttling along the shore, but the moment you may find yourself in a pinch, it's curtains for you and your adventure. Careful where you swim since you never know what's under the waves and waiting to roll up on you in a flash. While a new set of shoes might sound nice, they won't help you out run this scaly stalker of the sea . You might as well save your tears, because if this predator finds you, there's no mercy for you. It'll be hard to find another creature as a more solid challenge than this one. Its strength and size will definitely bring any inexperienced crew back down to earth. Those looking to climb this mountainous challenge will have to avoid crumbling under the pressure and deftly slide through the battle unscathed. Again, we have the Kraken Bowl grids open on both PvE and PvP servers where players can take part in the festivities before the wipe on May 18th. Need a dance partner? Check out the community discord and get yourself a few battle buddies for the trip. We appreciate all the support. Happy sailing! Final Note Again, we would like to emphasize that ATLAS is still in Early Access, meaning many things can and will likely continue to drastically change - even in the middle of development. Anything discussed is only up to date as of the moment it is posted. Features and changes that ultimately make it to the next patch, as well as timing, may be different from what was previously discussed.

  4. Ahoy Pathfinders! As mentioned previously, the winds of change are blowing! Soon, Atlas will enter a new era of exploration and adventure! New technologies and new inventions will bring new avenues for exciting and thrilling campaigns. We can’t wait to show you what we have in store for the next season! We’ll be providing more and more information as we get closer to the update. As a teaser, we have a glimpse of some strange new phenomenon coming to Atlas next patch. What could it be? You’ll have to find out for yourself next season! As we usher in a new age for Atlas, we will say goodbye to the previous season with fond memories. We hope you enjoyed it and look forward to what’s to come! The final day of the season will be May 18th when we will be wiping all servers for a fresh start. We hope you’ll continue the journey with us as we prepare to exit early access later this year. Thanks for your support, take care, and happy sailing! Kraken Bowl The Kraken Bowl will have a dedicated grid this season! To reach the Kraken Bowl, sail out from Tortuga in any direction across the grid line. Both PvE and PvP pathfinders will get to take part in the festivities. Grab your crew and send this season off with a bang! The grid will be accessible May 4th-May 18th. Final Note Again, we would like to emphasize that ATLAS is still in Early Access, meaning many things can and will likely continue to drastically change - even in the middle of development.

  5. Ahoy Pathfinders! In this patch, we are preparing for a new era in Atlas. The winds of progress are coming to the world, bringing new structures and adventures for all pathfinders, new and old. Large plumes of smoke can be seen on the horizon, signaling the “revolution” to come. First off, we have the much anticipated tame house being introduced in this patch. Breeders rejoice, these tame houses will make a great shelter for all your fauna friends, while significantly speeding up the breeding process. In preparation for the new season and Wonder coming soon, the fires of the industrial forge have been stoked to produce new resources and structures for Atlas. With these metallurgical advances, the landscape of Atlas will never be the same. Discover the origins of these new technological feats in two new regions of the Atlas map. Along with the new discoveries, these areas hold new mysteries and challenges that will test even the most seasoned pathfinder. Lastly, as always, we are dedicated to bettering the gameplay experience with every patch. This patch has a slew of bug fixes and improvements for the game, many suggested and reported by the community. We appreciate all the support and will continue to keep the community first as we move forward to final release. Happy sailing!

  6. Ahoy Pathfinders! We're bringing back an old favorite as we wait for the next update to come to shore. Last weekend, in our community Discord, we opened a channel to gather any and all questions from our community for our amazing Dev team. We reviewed all the questions and we've answered a few of them below. Even if yours was not selected to be answered publicly, we are taking all of your responses as feedback to continue to make to Atlas a better game for all. Thank you to all that participated. As a reminder, the answers below only reflect the current timeframe and are subject to change. While we can provide current insight on the game and what we hope to do, what is destined we can’t foresee. We appreciate your support and understanding. Without further ado, here’s our Q&A! Hang out in our Discord for a chance to get your questions answered in the next Q&A! Q&A Would it be possible to keep QoL skills between wipes? While this is possible it is not something that should be done without consideration. The most active time is the few weeks after a wipe when players are all at the same progress level, same island claim opportunity, etc. Allowing players to keep their quest progress will give an unfair advantage to those players. We are looking into ways of reducing the repetitiveness of the progression to endgame. When will Bola's be stackable? April 13th Patch Do you have plans on expanding the lore of Atlas? Yes, there are plans to expand the lore of the game world. We are currently working on systems for this. One of the contributors to this is the addition of the “Timeworn” quality level on blueprints. Is there a way to see all the features you plan to add before you move into the fixing and optimization phase? Please keep an eye on the official roadmap listed on the Trello board. (link here) This will be updated constantly to keep features in development public. Have devs ventured into unofficial communities to see how gameplay differentiates with mods? How has that impacted the future plans for the game? The unofficial communities have done a wonderful job with creating custom Atlas experiences. We look for mods that are widely adopted by the community in an effort to absorb the feedback. If a mod is universally used, that means there was an issue with the core game that needed to be addressed. We use that information to update our plans and address that issue. What can be done to make the game more enjoyable for the solo and/or small group player(s)? We are re-working the live realm maps so that the islands that mega-companies will be drawn to are outside the main travel routes. In addition, there are going to be several smaller islands added that are not enticing to large companies, which should allow for solo/small groups to have a positive Atlas experience. Are there any plans to change/add unwanted, repetitive islands to improve the balance between islands? During our polish phase we will be adjusting these islands to make them more enticing. Do you guys have plans to adjust endgame PVE? There are seven new bosses being added so each powerstone will have a unique boss encounter. We will be investigating different avenues to enhance maps as well in the future. When I leave my ship anchored the sailors will only repair the planks & decks of the ship. Are there plans to have the sailors repair the whole ship at some point? This is something we can look into in the future, but is currently not being planned. Will you add the ability to use deck swivels for modular ships? We will be adding additional modular railings in the next few patches. A Modular railing with swivels is planned to be included. Are there any plans to create a healthier breeding system so people won't burn out from breeding on the official server? We are implementing a new structure called the Tame House. This structure will greatly improve the breeding experience. What as the Dev Team are your plans to maintain and grow the player community? For the official side of Atlas, there has been discussion around a few ideas. One of these ideas might be a smaller “specialty” realm or realms. These specialty realms may have a shorter season time, maybe just one month, and revolve around different game modes. For example, there would be one month where tames are removed from the game, or where the only weapons are swords and pistols. I know a lot of people want to see a timeline of updates/planned updates/planned wipes/etc. Is there a plan for more transparency of what’s to come for Atlas? After release, we will have a regular schedule for our wipes, new seasons, and patches. The Trello board will contain this information. Any details on the Devkit update? The Devkit gets updated at least once a season, usually around the beginning of the new season. We may update it more frequently, especially if we introduce a large system. Any more plans for livestreams like we had around launch? We have not had any discussions about this, however we would love to have a live Dev steam. Will there be temporary alliance bed placement on your alliances ships and or foundations? This feature is something we have been planning on implementing for a little while, it should make its way into the game in the near future. Any plans to update to a newer version of Unreal Engine? There has been discussion about updating to Unreal Engine 5 at some point in the future. It is a tremendous amount of work that will sidetrack us for months, so we have not made a decision yet on if that’s the best course of action. Final Note Again, we would like to emphasize that ATLAS is still in Early Access, meaning many things can and will likely continue to drastically change - even in the middle of development. Anything discussed is only up to date as of the moment it is posted. Features and changes that ultimately make it to the next patch, as well as timing, may be different from what was previously discussed. As always, we appreciate the suggestions and feedback from the community. Please keep them coming! Thank you for all of your support!

  7. Ahoy Pathfinders! We're bringing back an old favorite as we wait for the next update to come to shore. Last weekend, in our community Discord, we opened a channel to gather any and all questions from our community for our amazing Dev team. We reviewed all the questions and we've answered a few of them below. Even if yours was not selected to be answered publicly, we are taking all of your responses as feedback to continue to make to Atlas a better game for all. Thank you to all that participated. As a reminder, the answers below only reflect the current timeframe and are subject to change. While we can provide current insight on the game and what we hope to do, what is destined we can’t foresee. We appreciate your support and understanding. Without further ado, here’s our Q&A!

  8. Ahoy Pathfinders! Last week, we unveiled our roadmap for the coming year in a short video briefly detailing our goals and what's in store for Atlas. Today, we are sailing forward with new content and some much needed maintenance as we look to prepare for our exit of early access later this year. Included in this patch is a new ship, UI improvements, a map adjustment, new content, and of course, major fixes to improve the gameplay experience. Need to transport your menagerie to a new location? Look no further than our latest vessel to join the fleet, the Pegasus. The Pegasus allows for Pathfinders to move their tames from island to island with ease. Carrying up to 30 tames, this ship can be constructed at the advanced shipyard and is a valuable addition to any crew. In response to player feedback, we've made a few UI adjustments to clarify the journey out on the open sea. We've added indicators on modular ships to help players identify the condition of each section as well as if there are any leaks. We've also reworked the overworld map, eliminating dropdowns and making navigating the map a little easier. We're also bringing in the new Industrial path for Wonders. With the new path, players will have new nodes to discover, new resources, new structures for harvesting, and even new weaponry for to craft - with even more content to come in future patches. Lastly, we are continuing to make improvements based on the wonderful feedback from our community. This patch we are making significant changes for not only the PC players, but are starting to address XBox-specific issues as well. We are not done yet, and are grateful for your patience and cooperation as we continue to improve the game. As always, we appreciate your support and ‘til next time, may your skies be clear, waters calm, and sails full in whichever way you roam. Servers will be going down on 3/10 at around 7:00 PM Pacific Time. Released Patch Notes v538.6 New Content New Modular Ship The Pegasus This is a new modular ship focused on transporting players’ tames. It is a 5 length ship built in the Advanced Shipyard once players have found blueprints for it. Blueprints can be found in shipwrecks. Unlocked in the Advanced Shipwright Skill It comes with 6 tame railings that can store 5 tames each (30 Total). Resources for a base version: Wood - 2500 Thatch - 2000 Fibers - 2000 Metal - 20 New Modular Ship UI We’ve added a popularly voted on request to the game in the form of additional UI for captains to know where leaks and damage is on their modular ships. There are 3 stages for durability: Green - Durability is good Yellow - Durability is moderate Red - Durability is poor If the portion of the ship is flashing, it means this area has a leak. We will look to make this UI element colorblind friendly in the future. Map Menu UI Visual Revamp The Atlas tab map UI has been revamped visually for an easier navigation of the regions. Instead of having dropdown tabs of the regions on the left, all regions available will be shown on one Overworld map. Players will be able to click and see all regions available on the overworld map. To get to the Overworld map click on the icon of the globe in the top left of your map screen. The region the player is currently in on the Overworld map is highlighted in green. Open Water Servers There is a new way to traverse through the atlas’ regions besides portals. There are now intermediate open water servers that connect regions to one another. There are no islands to be found here, just open seas and the treasure and dangers that come along with it. They are known as open waters and there are four of them within the world. They are connected through all sides of the Central Waters region. Depending on which cardinal direction the player goes through determines which region they travel to. Northern Sea - North Pole, Eastern Waters, Central Waters, Western Waters Eastern Sea - North Pole, Eastern Waters, Africa, Central Waters Southern Sea - Central Waters, Africa, Antarctica, South America Western Sea - North Pole, Central Waters, South America, Western Waters Industrial Wonder Content The industrial path of Wonders is slowly making its way into the Atlas. Transient and Static nodes for this path can be found and harvested exclusively within the Uncharted Sea region. Industrial Wonder: Power Nodes Transient Node - Geothermal Vents This transient node is similar to the Army of the Damned ones in that they have a time limit of one week before they deplete, despawn, and respawn at a different location, but they spawn more inland. Players will need to craft the new Ore Miner structure in order to harvest the resource of these nodes. These transient nodes produce a new resource type of coal: Brimstone Static Nodes There are two variants of Industrial static nodes - Lava vents and Sulfur pits. There is no need to create a harvesting structure for either as Pathfinders who’ve traveled here have built them already, but they seem to have perished. Lava Vents produce a new metal: Orichalcum. Sulfur Pits produce a new type of coal: Pure Sulfur Both of these resources are needed to craft new Industrial structures and gear now and in the future. Lava static nodes allow players to build the Industrial Smithy. Sulfur pit static nodes will get new crafting recipes in the future! New Craftables Ore Miner - harvests the resources of the industrial transient node only. Unlocked in the Metallurgy skill. Crafted in the smithy Resources Wood - 125 Thatch - 400 Fibers - 320 Metal - 360 Hide - 100 Stone - 1200 Industrial Smithy - The structure allows players to build Industrial Wonder specific content. Unlocked in the Metallurgy Skill. Crafted in the Lava Static nodes Resources Orichalcum - 100 Pure Sulfur - 60 Wood - 50 Brimstone - 50 Industrial Rifle - A rifle variant unique to this path that deals bleed additional damage Unlocked in the Secrets of Rifle skill Crafted in the Industrial Smithy Resources Ingot - 65 Orichalcum - 85 Pure Sulfur - 32 Flint - 30 Oil - 20 Industrialized Hydra Pistol - A pistol variant unique to this path that deals additional bleed damage Unlocked in the Revolvers skill. Crafted in the Industrial Smithy Resources Ingot - 35 Orichalcum - 45 Pure Sulfur - 20 Flint - 24 Oil - 12 Sulfurous Minni - A new ammo type that is fired out of the industrial rifle and pistol. Unlocked in the Secrets of Rifle skill Crafted in the Industrial Smithy Resources Orichalcum - 2 Gunpowder - 2 Pure Sulfur - 3 Brimstone - 1 Freeport Tortuga Freeport islands has been updated with new visuals. New Holiday Content St. Patties Day Holiday Pot of Gold has been added to the holiday vendor in freeports. Green Ale has been added to the holiday vendor in freeports. New Skill Pirates Resilience Pirates Resilience will be a passive buff gained when any pathfinder achieves the ‘Veteran Explorer’ quest. This buff will cause all incoming torpor damage to be reduced by 50%.

Additional fixes and optimization coming in future patches. Known Issues Xbox Series S still has some crashes when loading large numbers of structures Industrial Hydra and Industrial Rifle are not affected by the ‘Lucky Loader’ Feat Portal art for returning to Rookie Cove still shows the “Atlantean Ring” Portal art does not fade into the sky correctly Offloading tames faces them all in the same direction Lava vent node will not damage players that walk into the lava Pegasus has incorrect icon Final Note Again, we would like to emphasize that ATLAS is still in Early Access, meaning many things can and will likely continue to drastically change - even in the middle of development.

    Atlas 2022 Roadmap Video

    Ahoy Pathfinders! As we sail deeper into 2022, we are continuing our initiative of higher transparency with our amazing community. Today, as part of these efforts, we are providing a short video detailing our roadmap for the coming year. In the video, we lay out our plans for new content, new player experiences, and pending move out of early access! First, let’s take a quick look back and some of the progress made in 2021 and how these changes impacted the game Ship Building We introduced the modular ship system and several role-specific ships for players to customize their fleet PvP We’ve added the Wonders system to create new endgame content and fun interactions for the player base Travel Tradewinds and portals were brought in to make the difficult voyages on the sea a little easier PVE We’ve included new structures and tames to provide more content outside of battle Seahorses and dolphins are now tameable New buildings (such as the quarry and advanced shipyards) to help pathfinders complete the fleet of their dreams Map We reworked the map to create more themed regions for players to explore Rookie Cove Central Waters Various real world inspired locations Such as the Mediterranean, Arctic, and South American regions In the video, we also acknowledge areas of improvement and preview what’s to come Ships Creating a building experience similar to the legacy ships Increasing the diversity and ability of ships Upcoming “ship in a bottle” system PVP balancing Structures for building harbor defenses Structures that prevent others from building in your territory Tame adjustments New ship for tame hauling Tame houses geared towards completing tame bloodlines More water tames New interactions and mechanics Visiting NPC vendors Laying temporary Tradewinds Increased our communication with the community via our official Discord Expanding the world with new additional islands, regions, and adversaries … and so much more! This isn’t a complete or final list, but only a preview of the direction we are taking! Please take some time to check out the video and let us know what you think.

  12. Ahoy Pathfinders, As we continue to sail forward into 2022, we are doubling down our efforts to not only provide new, exciting experiences for the Atlas community but also, reevaluating and refining the current game to improve the gameplay experience. In this patch, we’re adding new regions, each with their own secrets, for players to explore and discover. We’re also getting festive with a few new cosmetics to help you and your crew celebrate the upcoming. Celebrate the year of the tiger or cuddle up with a bear-y good friend as you travel the world of Atlas. Finally, we’ve invested a lot of time into addressing the gameplay issues voiced by you, the community. This update is the continuation of that initiative, bringing tons of much needed bug fixes to shore. In addition, we are unveiling our new public issue tracker where pathfinders can track the progress of bugs that have been brought to our attention via Discord or other forums. We hope that this transparency reiterates our commitment to putting the voices of our players at the forefront of our decisions regarding the future of Atlas. The link can be found here. While not complete, we are grateful for all the feedback we’ve received from the community and ask for your continued assistance in making Atlas the best it can be.

  13. Ahoy Pathfinders! To start 2022 right, as promised, we're doing a little house cleaning. We're addressing many of the issues that you, the community, have been asking for in our latest patch. We have a host of bug fixes and optimizations listed below that we hope will fix the lingering problems from previous iterations, so we can start fresh moving into the new year. Along with these changes, we're fully implementing our first wonder, the Great Temple. This structure is the pinnacle of glory for all pathfinders. Companies will have to plot, scheme, and pool all of their resources to be the first, and only, masters of this great Wonder. Not only will they go down in history as the first Pirate legends to complete this stunning achievement but they will also gain “wondrous” benefits that will persist into the next season. Finally, we also have a new transport ship, the Tramp Freighter. This cost-effective hauler will help ease the load of transporting cargo in the early stages of your pirate journey. Check out the details of all our changes below. While not complete, we are grateful for all the feedback we’ve received from the community and ask for your continued assistance in making Atlas the best it can be.

  15. Ahoy Pathfinders! In the continuing effort to communicate and listen to our community, we'll be posting questions intermittently to get the pulse of the community and integrate their feedback into our future development of Atlas. This week's question is below: Do you want EU PVP and NA PVP realms to be combined into Global PVP? Vote by using the reactions on this post (haha) for yes, (confused ) for no. This new Global PVP will be pc/xbox crossplay. This poll will run until December 14th. Thank you for your responses and support!
