Star Atlas Seasons & 2022 Showroom and Roadmap

By Published On: 10 November 2022Tags: ,

During Solana Breakpoint 2022 in Lisbon, Star Atlas Co-Founder Michael Wagner, unveiled the trajectory for the Star Atlas Showroom and game. Following the path of games like Call of Duty, Destiny 2, and Fortnite, Star Atlas will also utilize the seasons model on its road to full release.

What’s implied is that over a course of a four-stage pre-season and 8 subsequent seasons, the Star Atlas Showroom will be expanded to include additional gameplay features and career progression systems.

What’s important about Star Atlas Seasons

According to ATMTA, the company behind Star Atlas, the full version one game is on a 5–7 year production timeline. The pre-alpha version is currently in pre-season Release 1 with Release 2 around the corner. Understanding the season schedule will help you better understand when certain game mechanics and careers will become available in Star Atlas.

While Star Atlas is using a season model, its important to note that the timeframe for each season is undefined. Typically gaming seasons last from 3–5 months. On a 5–7 year timeline, seasons could go as long as a year between releases. These seasons should expand the current environment of the Star Atlas showroom allowing people to to become more immersed in the Star Atlas metaverse.
