The directors of ARK: Survival Evolved announced a new pirate MMO called Atlas at The Game Awards 2018, and from the looks of its trailer, it's shaping up to be some fierce competition for Sea of Thieves.
Like Sea of Thieves, Atlas is a fantasy pirate adventure with slightly more realistic graphics than the former, though it's still a bit stylized. Where players complained that Sea of Thieves felt rather empty, Atlas looks nip that in the bud by showcasing action-packed battles with dozens of people and even some fire-breathing dragons.
According to the developer, Atlas is nearly 1,200 times bigger than ARK: Survival Evolved and will support up to 40,000 players simultaneously. Those certainly aren't numbers to scoff at, but we'll need to wait and see if the studio can deliver on that promise.
Atlas is set to come to PC on December 13 and will release into Xbox Game Preview sometime in 2019.
