Toys that aren't so lively
The toys-to-life fad that fuelled the likes of Disney Infinity, Lego Dimensions, and Skylanders died out years ago, didn’t it?

Starlink, however, manages just 10 per cent
SoulCalibur VI proved once again that the PlayStation 4 is the home of fighting games, moving a whopping 80 per cent of its physical UK copies on Sony’s system. However, the wider picture doesn’t tell a particularly positive tale, as retail sales of the brawler were down 55 per cent at launch compared...
Toys to life
As a concept, it feels like Starlink: Battle for Atlas is three years late to the party. The toys to life fad died out a long time ago, and so to see a title basing itself around the act of collecting weapons and ships out in the real world in the year 2018 almost seems like a foolish business decision to us. We got a chance to sample...
One of Ubisoft's games that's flying a bit under the radar is Starlink: Battle for Atlas, a toys-to-life space shooter. It's not going to blow anyone away, but it's looking to be a decent game aimed at a younger audience. This latest trailer gives us a good look at some of the environments you'll be able to explore and protect from the...
We’re not sure whether anyone was going to buy Starlink: Battle for Atlas on the PlayStation 4 anyway, but they certainly won’t when they realise the toy-based open world affair will ship without Star Fox on Sony’s system. Naturally, the iconic pilot will be performing barrel rolls on the Nintendo Switch only. Nevertheless, the...
No Man's Skylanders
In a genuinely surprising move, Ubisoft announced a new entry in the toys-to-life genre at its E3 2017 press conference today. Titled Starlink: Battle for Atlas, the game appears to be a space combat sim in which you deck out your ship using real-life model spaceships. The trailer's a little unclear, but it seems as if the...
You choose your pilot, hull, wings and weapons, combine them to build a custom starship and lock it into place atop your game controller. As you pilot your way to a nearby planet within the Atlas Star System, you sense you’re not alone. Suddenly, three enemy ships emerge from a nearby astreroid field and it becomes very clear you are not welcome. You try to fight them off, but realize your current loadout isn’t working in this situation. You make a lightning-fast decision, swap out your wings and weapons on the fly and re-engage, as another epic battle begins to save the galaxy from Grax and the Forgotten Legion.
Starlink: Battle for Atlas is an all-new action-adventure game developed by Ubisoft Toronto. This deep, open-world space saga features Smart Building Technology empowering players to assemble and customize real-world physical starships. Each part attached to the starship appears instantly in-game and players can experiment with different pilot abilities, weapon types, and status effects and unleash devastating combos upon their enemies.
