Welcome to the Star Atlas Wiki!

Powered by the Star Atlas community - Power to the people!

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[edit source]

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 - White Paper[1]

Star Atlas Team[edit source]

Star Atlas is being developed by Automata S.A.

Tokens[edit source]

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

The initial public sale of tokens took place by means of an Initial Exchange Offering (IEO) on FTX and an Initial DEX Offering (IDO) on Raydium and Apollo-X at the end of August 2021.[2]

Meta-Posters (NFTs)[edit source]

On April 24, 2021, Star Atlas kicked off a pre-launch campaign named ReBirth: Genesis of a Metaverse . It consisted of a sale of 14 NFTs 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]

Ships[edit source]

Ships are one of the core gameplay assets in the Star Atlas Metaverse. They allow players to explore, engage with other players and perform work in the game. Ships are represented as NFTs with different designs, functions, and sizes and require a crew to operate.

GAO[edit source]

Every now and then the team releases brand new ships for sale to fund their development and to fill the community treasury. These sales are referred to as the Galactic Asset Offering (GAO).
