Starlink: Battle for Atlas Crimson Moon Update Inbound, PC Version And Specs Announced

Starlink: Battle for Atlas is roaring back with big news. On April 30, the open-world, interplanetary space shooter is coming to PC, and it's arriving alongside a free content update on all platforms. Adding a new area known as the Crimson Moon, the update will affect the entire Atlas system, with new faction story missions, weekly challenges, and competitive outlaw racing in single-player and split-screen coop. The update also adds new Leaderboards, letting players compare their stats with other players around the world.

There's new paid content on the way as well, with five new pilots, three new Starships, and 11 weapons available for digital purchase. Additionally, more Star Fox content will also be available for purchase on Nintendo Switch starting April 30, letting players hunt Star Wolf in new story missions, and adding three legendary Star Fox team pilots – Peppy, Slippy, and Falco, each with their own special ability and skill tree.

Starlink: Battle for Atlas' PC debut on April 30 will feature the same content as the PS4 and Xbox One versions, and will support play with physical Starships (using the DualShock and Xbox One controller mounts) as well as all-digital play. Read on for full specs and system requirements, and make sure your rig is ready to battle Outlaws and the Forgotten Legion across the Atlas system.
