Calico Maxhog - Weapons Bay

Weekly Star Atlas Newsletter #134

Another week went by with little news. However, the team did share top-notch alpha in the form of an image (and explanation) listing all the Crew Perks the upcoming Crew members will be able to work toward! Beyond this meaty topic, the team did make an announcement regarding a few expected Starbased updates, which we’ll look into as well!

Weekly Star Atlas Newsletter #133

Another week went by, and the flow of news has not really increased compared to last week. However, Michael (CEO) and the team have hinted at a Town Hall being organized as you read this, and it looks likely that we’ll get a barrage of news during that (as of yet, unannounced) event!

That said, we had our first Star Atlas Economic Forum (Brew) last week, so we’ll get into that! We also got a statement from Michael on the game that we’ve included in full here. It’ll be short but sweet!

Rainbow Phi: Arboretum – Concept Art [by Gary Sanchez]

Weekly Star Atlas Newsletter #132

A very short newsletter today, as the past week was almost without any newsworthy announcements. Starbased got an impactful update to crafting, we got a small Passenger update from the team, and we have some cool new concept art for the Rainbow Phi (again!) and Ogrika ship weapons.

Rainbow Phi: Turrets – Concept Art [by Gary Sanchez]

Weekly Star Atlas Newsletter #131

Another, mostly uneventful, week has passed. But the few things that did happen were certainly enticing to Starbased players! The team re-introduced ship redemptions in SAGE and, on top, introduced ATLAS Emission bonuses based on Starbased Tier upgrades. And two more great changes are scheduled to go live this week!

We’ll go over all of these changes in detail, but we’re kicking things off with another event that got people talking: The release of the Crew passenger capacity for each ship. Finally, we’ll wrap up this issue with some of the latest sneak peeks the team shared during the past week. And we’ve got a special bonus: new Rainbow Phi concept art!

Rainbow Phi: Holographic room - Concept Art [by Gary Sanchez]

Weekly Star Atlas Newsletter #130

After the torrent of news last week, finding newsworthy bits for this week’s issue of our newsletter proved difficult. Thankfully, the team allowed us to share bits and pieces of information from the Foundation Room with you all! This enables us to share some more details regarding the Crew & Ship Component drop and a statement by Michael regarding gameplay.

Star Atlas - Crew

Weekly Star Atlas Newsletter #129

This week, we got more than we hoped for! We not only got detailed information on the Crew & Crew Packs combined with a first pre-sale, but we also got to see some awesome progress on the ONI CSS! On top of that, Michael also announced and showed off the much-anticipated move of SAGE 3D into UE5.

But that is not all. Back in the here and now, we also have a ton of great Starbased changes!

Star Atlas - Busan Pulse [In-game]

Weekly Star Atlas Newsletter #128

Last week was pretty quiet. The biggest news was that the team made a change to the minable resources in Starbased. Other than that, we have a few small Roadmap updates and Busan pulse Sneak peeks. Fortunately, it looks like we’ll have more to share next week! Solana Crossroads is taking place in Istanbul, Turkey, at the tail end of this week, and it should come with a few new announcements from Michael! Last but not least, a small community meetup will be organized on May 7th in Istanbul as well!

Star Atlas - Gagli.doer [Rare Ustur Crew Card]

Weekly Star Atlas Newsletter #127

Last week was a relatively quiet week after all the developments from the week prior. Nevertheless, we managed to scrounge together what bits were newsworthy for you below! We’ll get into the Surge rewards, the team’s approach to Crew Card conversion, and Michael’s (CEO) comments on the Multichain Venture acquisition! One additional thing worth sharing is that we updated our Starbased Guide with the latest info and numbers.

Weekly Star Atlas Newsletter #126

Last week was a big week, with the long-anticipated multiplayer stress test taking place, major Starbased changes dropping, and the unexpected announcement of ATMTA acquiring the former company of the three co-founders, Multichain Ventures. As part of that announcement, we’ve also learned that soon, a new asset class will become available: Cultivation Facilities. And, one would almost forget, a new DataRunner ship has been released, the Fimbul BYOS Ranger!

Star Atlas - Fimbul ECOS Superphoenix [Concept Art]

Weekly Star Atlas Newsletter #125

The second UE5 Multiplayer Stress test is coming, and everyone participating will be rewarded! But there is a lot more about to happen in the Star Atlas ecosystem! This Tuesday, April 16th, expect some drastic changes to the Economy and Starbased! This is all in the future, however. What happened last week? Well, the Superphoenix Titan was officially sold, and the Surge gameplay mode, which will take the spotlight during the aforementioned stress test, is now open for practice!

SAGE Starbased - Play now!

Weekly Star Atlas Newsletter #124

SAGE Starbased is live! There are no two ways about it: the biggest news this past week was, without a doubt, the mainnet launch of SAGE Starbased. But that does not mean nothing else happened. We got a second Surge test this past Saturday, an announcement date for the next UE5 multiplayer stress test, and a brand new ship sale, the Calico Shipit!

STAR ATLAS 20240330 201753114

Weekly Star Atlas Newsletter #123

Last week was relatively quiet, but we did get some good stuff from the team. The first UE5 Surge test took place, and the Quarterly Econ Paper for Q1 of 2024 was released. The big news, however, was the announcement that Starbased will go live this Tuesday, April 2nd. There was also some bad news: the team closed down the over-the-counter (OTC) trading channel on the official Discord server after a scam.

Star Atlas - Rainbow Phi [Concept Art]

Weekly Star Atlas Newsletter #122

The highlight of last week was, no doubt, the long-awaited publication of the new roadmap! It provides great insight into the rough order in which the team plans to release certain features to the players. Additionally, we almost had a short multiplayer stress test test, but it was canceled at the last minute. The Surge game mode sure looks interesting, though!

In other news, the owner of the Rainbow Phi Titan ship has been revealed, and the ship has been spotted in SAGE! And last but not least, we have the latest from Michael on lending!

Rainbow Phi Titan ship

Weekly Star Atlas Newsletter #121

Last week was the quietest week in a while, so we’ll keep this newsletter short! The big news was that the Titan ship introduced last week, the Rainbow Phi, has already been sold! But, likely more important to most of you, was the news that the team added priority fees to all transactions in SAGE Labs and the Galactic Marketplace.

Pearce T1 Titan ship

Weekly Star Atlas Newsletter #120

Last week’s issue was chock-full of news shared during the first-ever Community Week. As expected, the week after was a very quiet one, with no new announcements or revelations from the team. We did learn a lot more about one of the Titan sales. On top of that, Michael (CEO) shared a thought he had with the community, triggering a multi-day discussion over multiple platforms. Oh, and a new Titan ship is now available for sale: The Rainbow Phi!

R2.2 Test

Weekly Star Atlas Newsletter #119

This past week was a blast! The Community Week saw a ton of activity, which really brought the community together! On top of that, the Town Hall came with a ton of alpha, announcements, and reveals. We have news on R2.2, Starbased, Crew cards, COPA, the Joni Awards and more!

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.

Joni Award

Weekly Star Atlas Newsletter #117

A short and sweet issue this week, as news and reveals from the team have quieted down a bit. Of course, we’re getting close to the big Community Week event (Feb 26 – March 1), and it’s widely expected that there will be some interesting announcements (if not actual releases) during that week! What we do have for this week is a new JNavigating Star Atlas episode, Joni nominations to vote on, and more DAC stats!

Ogrika Ruch - PURI skin

Weekly Star Atlas Newsletter #116

Last week was pretty action-packed despite there being no gameplay releases or updates. The team launched a new XXS racing ship and made 3 limited edition skins available, but with a twist. 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.
