Starlink: Battle for Atlas was a newcomer to the « toys for life » genre that had the incredible misfortune of launching after the market for games like Skylanders and Disney Infinity had already dried up. Ubisoft went out of its way to mitigate this, including releasing an all-digital version that didn’t require toys to play. Now this digital version is free on the PC.
You can download Starlink: Battle for Atlas here for free using the Ubisoft Connect client. The action is only today, on 15. December, available. Once you claim the game, it will stay in your library forever. This is part of Ubisoft’s Happy Holidays promotion that is open to players until April 18th. December offers free gifts every day.
This is the standard digital edition from Starlink that contains the vast majority of the ships, pilots, and weapons released in the first wave of toys. This means you get a stack of content for free without having to swap out small pieces of plastic. Not bad at all for the price of nothing.
All of that preamble probably speaks for why Starlink didn’t cause much of a stir when it launched, but it’s a solid arcade space shooter that takes the concept up with a good bit of Ubisoft’s usual mix of open-world games and RPG Play in depth, all with an adventurous cartoon mood on Saturday mornings. Well worth a look.
