Twelve Stories of Peace in the Galia Expanse

The year 2023 is directly tied to the year 2623 in the Galia Expanse, the part of the galaxy where the events of Star Atlas lore unfold. This year (2023/2623) marks the 100th anniversary of peace between the three major factions, the MUD, the ONI, and the Ustur. Exactly 100 years ago (2523), representatives of

As the team approaches Christmas and their (subsequent) two weeks off, they are crunching hard, trying to push some more releases out this year. We’ll likely hear more about those efforts on Tuesday when they host their last Town Hall of the year!

But we had an interesting week, this past week as well! The highly anticipated release of the 3D version of SAGE, whose graphics have enamored many, finally went live! And we had the GAM3 Awards, of course.

Weekly Star Atlas Newsletter #109

With the end of the year in our sights, the past week was an eventful one! For one, the team’s social campaign, Never Alone, started a new chapter. But we also have news on a Web3 collaboration/partnership, with Michael (CEO) spending over 300k to acquire a Neo Tokyo Code NFT.

Besides these interesting events, the next episode of CORE is available on the Galactic Marketplace, and the Golden Ticket raffle entered its final weeks. And that is not even all, there is more!

Weekly Star Atlas Newsletter #108

The last month of the year has begun, and anticipations are rising as to what the team may, or may not release before the end of the year. So, we’re going to start there this time. On top of that, though the team did not reveal that much new information, plenty of things happened that are worth sharing.

One absolute highlight this past week was Michael Wagner (CEO) mentioning that Star Atlas has been profitable in November!

Weekly Star Atlas Newsletter #105

With the big Breakpoint reveals behind us, the flow of news from the team has, unsurprisingly, slowed to a trickle. But after working towards an event that big, that was expected. It does mean that this issue will be on the shorter side again.

The highlight of last week was, no doubt, the second Golden Ticket draw, which was once again a big success. This upcoming week will not only see the third such drawing, but it will also feature the first Developer Hour session. This may prove to be quite interesting to any developers out there.

Weekly Star Atlas Newsletter #99

Since its release, people have been heads-down playing SAGE Labs. In parallel, the team was heads-down, fixing bugs and making small improvements. But, fortunately for this issue, more happened last week! A highlight was the team publishing their latest Economic Report, covering the 3rd quarter of 2023. However, most newsworthy tidbits you’ll find in this newsletter came from Chip (Director of Game Systems Design) and, to a lesser extent, our very own data runners.

We had a big week last week, with the launch of the new StarPath V2 referral system and the release of the very first SAGE iteration: SAGE Labs! Meanwhile, a lot of players have jumped into Labs, and though there are some show-stopping bugs (at least for some), it looks like most people react favorably to it.

Besides this, the 2nd Photography concluded, ATLAS Prime went live as well (as part of Labs), and we’ve got the latest on the first Golden Ticket raffle.

Weekly Star Atlas Newsletter #96

Another week went by, and SAGE Labs is closer to release than ever before. However, it does look like we’ll need to wait a little longer. Meanwhile, limited community playtesting has begun, which ruffled some feathers in the community. Beyond that, not much happened last week. We did get a bit more insight into the roadmap going forward, and the team shared some shots of a new ground race track environment that you’ll be able to explore in Showroom R2.2.

Star Atlas - Community Week

Weekly Star Atlas Newsletter #118

Happy Community Week! This first-of-a-kind week, in which a community-focused event is organized daily, is kicking off today! That for sure means we will have plenty of news to cover in next week’s issue.

Now, looking at the past week first, there was little in the way of news. Without the Community Week highlight, this issue would have been much thinner. Really the only news from last week is that the team picked the COPA finalists and launched the alternative collectible cover for the final chapter of CORE Act 2.

Weekly Star Atlas Newsletter #117

A short and sweet issue this week, as news and reveals from the team have quieted down a bit.

What we do have for this week is a new JNavigating Star Atlas episode, Joni nominations to vote on, and more DAC stats!

In addition, they released the 6th and final episode of CORE Act 2! Lastly, we received more details on Crew members, and a former Econ team member has been working hard to provide us with early DAC Analysis. This will be a somewhat longer one, so strap in!

DAC Launch

Weekly Star Atlas Newsletter #115

We’ve officially entered the second month of the year 2024, and the team has launched its highly anticipated DAC Platform! Exactly 3 years ago, the team (only a handful of people) published their Whitepaper and shared their vision with the world. Since then, dozens of DACs (aka guilds) have been created, but there was no way to officially register these with Star Atlas. Those days are now in the past!

This release was not all, however. The team also announced a brand new ship, the Ogrika Ruch. When it goes on sale, it will do so along with 3 exclusive skins! And there is something special happening with those skins.

Star Atlas: Council of Peace Assembly

Weekly Star Atlas Newsletter #114

The first month of 2024 is almost in our rearview mirror, and though there has been no big bang yet (as expected), we’ve had a decent amount of news to report on every week. This past week was no exception! Major highlights of course: the first ship release of the year and the Community Week announcement for the last week of February. On top of that, Michael (CEO) provided an overview of the work going on to improve stability and reduce technical issues, which we included verbatim.

Then, there were a bunch of smaller tidbits worth sharing, such as the Atlas Brew, Econ changes, and conferences.

We certainly believe the potential is there!

Meanwhile, the team has resumed their work, but -as expected- not many newsworthy items were shared.
