Tonight at The Game Awards, Ark: Survival Evolved developer Studio Wildcard announced a new game. Atlas, as it's called, is an open-world survival MMO. It's launching next week on PC, with a console version coming in 2019 through the Xbox One Game Preview program.

Atlas reportedly supports 40,000 concurrent players; and in terms of map size, it's 1,200 times the size of an Ark server, the developers said. There are numerous different biomes in Atlas, including desert, tundra, and polar regions. You'll encounter a series of animals ranging from regular livestock as well as mythological creatures.

Atlas will offer naval battles. The overall aim in Atlas is to build an armada, claim territory, and dominate the world. You can check out the announcement trailer above.
