Look out for sandworms and other new foes in Starlink: Battle for Atlas


The spice must flow

Just when I think I'm free at last to crack open new games during the chilled-out holiday break, I keep hearing about content updates for games I've already finished. It never ends! If you wrapped up Starlink: Battle for Atlas and have since moved on, you might want to give it another look beginning tomorrow.

Starlink is assembling a new range of enemies, another activity, and a photo mode in a free update.

As you fly around your old stomping ground, you might notice a few new threats including Sentinels, a scout-like unit that can call for reinforcements, and Obelisks, long-range towers that would fit right at home in a tower defense game. Ubisoft is also fleshing out the game's flora and fauna with prickly bouncing burs and strange globs that balloon until they burst. Best of all, though? Sandworms!

Along with more sources of Electrum, Starlink's main currency, the update will also sprinkle turret-defended Outlaw fortifications across the universe. It's something new to tackle if you're out of ideas.

Starlink's holiday update goes live on December 21, 2018 for all platforms.
