Weekly Star Atlas Newsletter #73

The first quarter of 2023 came and went without any substantial releases from the team. Many held hope of seeing the SAGE: Movement Test and/or the Claim Stakes R4 production (for SCORE) in March, but with that month having come to an end, we now expect to see these in Q2 of 2023 instead. These two releases will join Showroom 2.1, which was already targeting Q2. And let’s not forget about the Mobile Companion app, which, according to leaked documents, was targeted for Q1, but which might now be launched in Q2 as well. In short, the second quarter of 2023 could become the action-packed month we really need!

And then, there is one more thing to (potentially) look forward to, coupled with the Movement Test. The team will launch an immersive social campaign. Nothing about it was shared, however, so we’ll have to wait and see what this will entail.

Atlas Brew Meetup

Weekly Star Atlas Newsletter #72

Last week was, once again, a quiet week. But, could this perhaps be the calm before the storm? The end of Q1 is in our sights, and the team has become very quiet, almost as if they are in crunch-mode right before a possible release. We’ll learn more soon, no doubt!

There were a few interesting tidbits to report on, however! There was an official Paris meetup, an interview with Brett (Blockchain Architect on Twitter), and some discussion regarding the hangar size in ships!

The biggest story in crypto land last week was, undoubtedly, the collapse of the Silicon Valley Bank and what this meant for Circle, the company that operates the USDC stablecoin. Besides the team’s reaction to this, and the release of Core issue 5, there was not much other news last week.

We had a quiet week in Star Atlas’ corner of the metaverse, with the only real news coming from the foundation-room channels on the official Discord server. But… That news was pretty juicy, with Danny (CTO) sharing a good deal of new information about upcoming UE5 gameplay, and some enticing pictures to go with it!

Weekly Star Atlas Newsletter #66

In a week with no Town hall and no Atlas Star newsletter, things were relatively quiet on the Star Atlas front. On top of that, the tragic disaster in South East Turkey & Northern Syria easily overshadowed the few news tidbits that did come out. We’ll also address that in this newsletter, but let’s kick things off with the newsworthy bits from last week!

Weekly Star Atlas Newsletter #64

The past week has been a quiet one. No reveals came from the team, and no public appearances or new articles have manifested. Well, that is not entirely true, the team did post a second (text) update to the Epic Games Store. There is nothing new here, but it’s well worth the read. Meanwhile, January is nearing its end, and in February, the team is expected to shed more light on what to expect from them this year.

It looks like the first step in this direction will come through a Townhall this Friday (February 3rd). The team seems confident this date will work out, but we are still awaiting official confirmation. So keep an eye out!

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.

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.

Weekly Star Atlas Newsletter #94

After the information-packed last weeks, the past week was again a more quiet one. The Atlas Brew was filled with lore from José (aka ZeSKK – Star Atlas official Penguin) on the various systems we’ll get to explore in SAGE Labs, and how this lore ties into the other lore that is already out there. In other words, a lot of lore-alpha was dropped, but nothing regarding gameplay or timelines.

Fortunately, Chip (Director of Game Systems Design) was feeling generous, answering many SAGE Labs-related questions on Discord. This led to some interesting insights into how different ships behave in that game, which you can read about below.
