We finally got some more information about Starlink: Battle for Atlas during Ubisoft’s E3 2018 Press Conference including a release date and some exciting news about an exclusive add-on character.

After announcing it with a trailer and some screenshots during last year’s E3 2017 press briefing, players were interested in the toy to life game where they will be able to construct their own starships through the use of  “Smart Building Technology” and transport them into the game to use by mounting them onto their controllers.

Starlink: Battle for Atlas finds players part of a group of heroic interstellar pilots tasked with saving the Atlas star system from the Forgotten Legion, an evil robot force in this open-world space saga.

During the presentation today, viewers were happily surprised by a trailer featuring the leader of the Star Fox team, Fox McCloud, and Ubisoft announced that he will be an exclusive for Nintendo Switch along with his iconic Arwing ship.
