Originally slated for an Early Access release last week, then delayed until today, pirate MMO Atlas (opens in new tab) (from the makers of dino survival game Ark: Survival Evolved) has been pushed back a few more days, according to the description under the extended launch trailer posted today (which you can see above). A message in the official Atlas Discord confirms the delay as well: the new Early Access launch date is now Friday, December 21.

Steven got to play a bit of Atlas two weeks ago (opens in new tab), and barring any further delays, the rest of us will get our chance before Christmas. We hope!

Chris started playing PC games in the 1980s, started writing about them in the early 2000s, and (finally) started getting paid to write about them in the late 2000s. Following a few years as a regular freelancer, PC Gamer hired him in 2014, probably so he'd stop emailing them asking for more work. Chris has a love-hate relationship with survival games and an unhealthy fascination with the inner lives of NPCs. He's also a fan of offbeat simulation games, mods, and ignoring storylines in RPGs so he can make up his own.
