BOYS AND GIRLS OF THE SHAAAAFT TODAY WE HAVE VERY EXCITING NEWS! ATLAS IS ACTUALLY IMPROVING!!! Today the developers of wildcard.. Oh GRAPESHOT.. Yeah.. Well they sat down and did a TWO HOUR livestream on the state of ATLAS, this was hosted by the amazing captain jat sparrow, zorro, underaged kid who wants to go home and the farmer!
Lets get right into it with SHIPS OF THE DAMNED, thats right! They will not be reducing the amount of ships! Instead they will be adding MORE! They will be adding in a smaller and a larger version of these ships to try and spread out difficulty of the ships. The smaller ones will not have as much health, be harder to agro and will be all round easier to fight, great for those little nooblets of the sea. But the BIG BAD BOY OF THE SEA will be no easy task, BEING HUGE with multiple places to fire cannons at you, having EVEN MORE HEALTH than the ones already in the game, honestly.. If you are near this guy RUN! Or.. SAIL!
I personally am not sure how this will work putting more into the game, even though they have reduced the amount of ships of the damned there are DRAMATICALLY they are still a huge pest of ATLAS
Next up we have BASE DEFENSE thats right! Zorro told us there will be NO TURRETS WHILE HE IS THERE, expressing how they want to make it bias towards defenders.. Which in all honesty was quite funny to here.. Seeing WE CANT EVEN SURVIVE FROM WOLVES, SERIOUSLY, YOU CAN BREAK INTO A BASE WITH A PICK AXE. But I will give them a break seeing that it is early access and they are actively focusing on improving it.
Zorro himself suggested his idea that he wants to bring into the game for defense.. Enchanting lampposts… yep.. Daily enchanting of lampposts, just what we all wanted! Having to log in daily to stop our base being destroyed by random creatures.. GOOD THING NONE OF US HAVE JOBS..
SHOPS IN FREEPORT WILL BE A THING! Players will be able to set up their own shops and sell their items to other players for gold! Not much to add to that.. BUT AWESOME
NEXT UP THERE WILL BE A SNEAKING PERK! MAKING YOU NEARLY INVISIBLE TO OTHERS AND CREATURES.. COOL.. NEXT!
In the february patch they will be including BOUNTY HUNTING! Getting gold from the heads of those you capture! You will apparently have to noose them or guillotine them to get their skull to hand in.. unfortunately the devs appear to have a lot of things to still iron out with this one, being unsure on how to avoid people abusing the system. I am looking forward to seeing how this one goes.
OH YES.. YOU HEARD ME RIGHT BEFORE.. THE GUILLOTINE IS BEING ADDED TO THE GAME, LOOK AT HOW COOL THIS BABY LOOKS, having a cute little bucket to catch a head in! I cannot wait to see what animation they pair this with, its unknown to the devs if they will allow it to sit on the ships at this current time, honestly there isnt TOO much to say about this one.. But it is certainly cool. All we can really say for sure is it is a key part of the bounty system
BUT OH BOY WE HAVE SOMETHING SO COOL, SOMETHING WE LOVE FROM ARK.. SKINSSSS!
The army of the damned will now be an armor skin, oh boy look at how cool that looks! Those spiked gloves look SICK. I have to admit I am very excited to see this skin put in because that has to be one of the most badass skins between both ark and atlas.
BUT THERES MOREEEE! They also revealed some absolutely awesome looking concept art for the upcoming skins!
Lets start with the hydra armor.. HMM…. that definitely looks like tiandi from for honor.. I feel like someone from the atlas team is a fan.. But it honestly does look really cool, heaving beautiful detail and patterns I can only hope it will translate to be that good in game.
Next we have the heavy plated fur armor, this looks really clean! A beautiful asian inspired outfit, Its so good to see Grapeshot catering to their main audience! I cant help but think it looks like it has coins glued to its head but it should look really cool in game!
The next one is spikey! Lots of spikes of teeth and whatever those shoulder things are! This is certainly an interesting outfit design not something you would expect to see in the snow thats for sure!
Now speaking of cold, look at this next grassy outfit, that looks GREAT, a cute tribal cyclops looking outfit with the classic grass skirt, this would be perfect for running around in the desert with.
Oh and lets not forget the peg leg! Very cool! Funnily enough you can have two peg legs at once!
