Starlink: Battle For Atlas Buying Guide (US Only)

Prepare for battle.


Starlink: Battle For Atlas is now available on PS4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch. This game lets you pilot a space ship through a massive solar system, landing on and exploring seven varied planets aswarm with enemies. The game itself is like a family-friendly No Man's Sky mixed with Star Fox (in fact, the Switch version even has a Star Fox crossover).

It also features a whole toys-to-life aspect that lets you change out parts of your in-game ship just by swapping pieces of a toy line that launches alongside the game. These can get kind of confusing, but we'll guide you through the whole line of toys below.
