Today Danny Floyd (Star Atlas CPO) shared part of the near future roadmap. Ship missions were mentioned and it was confirmed that players would need to manage fuel, food, ammo and toolkits. Although mid November was mentioned as a release date for the mini game, the date is not yet set in stone. Also, targeted for the 2nd week of December, is to provide users with the ability to participate in Star Atlas governance via the DAO.
