Sail the globe and stake your claim to become a legendary pirate. That’s the mantra for Atlas, one of gaming’s largest open worlds where players embark on a grand adventure alongside thousands of other players. In today’s episode of Inside Xbox, Lead Game Designer Erik Waananen shared how you can help Atlas become the ultimate pirate experience when it comes to Xbox Game Preview on Xbox One starting October 8 with cross-play between Xbox One and Steam page.
The roadmap for development will come in phases, starting with life improvements, bug fixes, performance increases, and then moving onto sea, ship, and sailing updates. Future updates will also add Xbox Play Anywhere support with Windows 10 PC, along with keyboard and mouse support for Xbox One and full game parity between Xbox and PC.
