Star Atlas is a next-gen gaming metaverse emerging from the confluence of state of the art blockchain, real-time graphics, multiplayer video game, and decentralized financial technologies. Real-time graphics technology using Unreal Engine 5’s Nanite allows for cinematic quality video game visuals. Blockchain technology using the Solana protocol established a largely serverless and secured gameplay experience. Usage of non-fungible tokens obtained and traded within Star Atlas creates an economy that replicates the tangibility of real world assets and ownership. The game offers a mix of Grand Strategy, Exploration, Role-Playing, and Space Flight Simulation genres.[1]

Lore

The white paper introduces the game as follow:

Star Atlas is a virtual gaming metaverse based in the year 2620.

In this distant future, three major factions have emerged;

  1. The MUD Territory governed by humankind,
  2. The ONI Region as a consortium of alien races, and
  3. The Ustur Sector controlled by sentient androids.

These factions are in an ongoing struggle for resources, territorial conquest, and political domination. You, a faction citizen of Star Atlas, will have the ability to influence the outcome of this intergalactic conflict while creating the opportunity to earn rewards for your contributions.

The metaverse introduces a unique gaming experience through the combination of both traditional core game and blockchain mechanics.

Star Atlas Team

Star Atlas is being developed by Automata S.A.

Tokens

Star Atlas operates a dual token economy, with the two crypto-native assets being ATLAS and POLIS.[1]

Initial public sale of tokens is expected as an Initial exchange offering (IEO) on FTX and an Initial DEX Offering (IDO) on Raydium and Apollo-X in the end of August, 2021.[2]

Meta-Posters (NFTs)

On April 24, 2021 Star Atlas launched a pre-launch campaign named ReBirth: Genesis of a Metaverse . It consisted out of a sale of 14 NFT's that the company referred to as "open-edition multimedia meta-posters that contained augmented reality experiences as well as soundtracks."

On June 14, 2021 Star Atlas made a surprise announcement that they were releasing an additional poster, that was not going to be part of the Rebirth collection. Instead it was kicking off a new category titled "Legends". The first (and so far only) poster in this series, that was announced that day, is the Armstrong Forever poster.[3]
