Here’s some welcome news from Ubisoft for fans of Starlink: Battle for Atlas: there’s new content coming your way!
The only bad news is already pretty well known- the toy ships are no longer being released, so you won’t be getting spiffy new spaceships.
Here’s the press release from Ubisoft:
UBISOFT ANNOUNCES NEW CRIMSON MOON CONTENT UPDATE FOR STARLINK: BATTLE FOR ATLAS®, LAUNCHING APRIL 30
Join Forces with Star Fox Team’s Peppy, Falco and Slippy in Add-On Content Launching Alongside the Update, Exclusively for Nintendo Switch™
SAN FRANCISCO — April 24, 2019 — Today, Ubisoft announced that Starlink: Battle for Atlas® will receive a significant content update centered on the mysterious appearance of the Crimson Moon in the Atlas star system. The update will be available for download on the Nintendo Switch™ system, PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system and the Xbox One family of devices including Xbox One X.
The new Crimson Moon content will also be included in the all-new Windows PC version of the game, releasing the same day, April 30, 2019. On PC, Starlink: Battle for Atlas will feature the same content as the console version and will support the Dualshock and Xbox One controller mounts, as well as digital play.

As part of the free update, players can explore the Crimson Moon, theater of the Outlaw Games. Players will be able to compete in all-new single-player and two-player split-screen racing tracks, fight waves of ruthless enemies in the Crimson Coliseum and see their rank and stats on leaderboards. The Crimson Moon will also impact the entire world of Atlas and let players engage with new faction story missions and weekly challenges. Additionally, players will be able to expand their roster and play through the new Crimson Moon content with five new pilots, three new starships and eleven new weapons available separately for digital-only purchase.
Alongside the Crimson Moon update, prepare to take control of the Star Fox team members Peppy, Falco and Slippy in brand-new content coming exclusively to Nintendo Switch. Hunt down the Star Wolf team in a series of missions with the help of three new Star Fox team pilots, each with their own unique special ability and skill tree. The new Star Fox content will be available separately for digital-only purchase for $11.99 on Nintendo Switch beginning April 30, 2019.

When the announcement was made that new toy ships weren’t going to be released a few months back, I was pretty worried that Starlink was in trouble, but this new update looks like I was worrying for nothing. To be completely honest, the toys-to-life aspect of the game was probably the weakest link, so getting that out of the way should allow the dev team more time to focus on more cool content!
Here’s the trailer, which shows of the really cool looking race features:
