Assemble a Ship out of Physical Parts in Starlink: Battle for Atlas

Build your own adventure.

Oh, you thought you were done with toys-to-life? You know nothing, child.

At E3 2017, Ubisoft debuted Starlink: Battle for Atlas, a futuristic space combat game that lets you build up and customize your spaceship using actual physical parts. Using a scanner accessory, you assemble your fighter and swap out parts as needed to fight an alien menace.

Don't worry: Said parts are seemingly available in digital forms, too. It doesn't look like you don't have to physically build your ship if you don't want to, but honestly, where's the fun in that?

Starlink: Battle for Atlas comes to the Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One in 2018.
