Starlink: Battle for Atlas was revealed at E3 2017, promising toys to life with a twist. Now, the game has a release date, announced during Ubisoft's E3 2018 press conference: it's coming to PS4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch on October 16.

In addition, the game has a new trailer, which you can watch above. Ubisoft also revealed Star Fox, the beloved Nintendo character, will be an exclusive character to the game's Switch version.

Atlas is a space dogfighting game that takes place in a huge open world. It uses a completely modular spaceship toy that attaches to your gamepad. You can mix and match different items like ship parts--wings, weapons, and more--and you can also add different pilot characters, such as Fox McCloud himself. When you swap out a part or a pilot, this is displayed on the screen instantly.

Elsewhere at Ubisoft's E3 2018 press conference, the company showcased a new Beyond Good & Evil 2 trailer and announced a bunch of free The Division 2 DLC. We also got a glimpse of a new Trials game named Trials Rising.
