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.
