Atlas Reactor spinoff and current torchbearer for the Atlas series, Atlas Rogues, has been enjoying an early access run since November and recently took one step further towards its anticipated full release later this year. In preparation for the next content update scheduled for the near future, the first Atlas Rogues update of 2021 has incorporated multiple fixes and gameplay improvements – undoubtedly welcome news to series fans who couldn’t wait to get stuck-in to this highly-anticipated title.
Atlas Rogues is a rogue-lite spinoff that maintains its turn-based combat mechanics in a stylised and futuristic setting. Players assume control of the colourful Freelancers, a ragtag collection of rogues each boasting sleek character designs and compelling backstories, as they attempt to collect Reactor keys from the Trusts. Its new rogue-lite reimagining sees players unearth rich lore and reassess their tactics as runs are repeated through a time loop, be it in single player or with the help of friends in co-op.
The fixes that came with the latest update worked to resolve a number of critical bugs and crash issues that players have been experiencing in its early-access state, and also incorporated some visual upgrades and stabilisation measures. More exciting than that, however, is the reintroduction of the fan-favourite K9 warhounds who were previously causing crashes.
The UI has also been updated alongside improvements to the Freelancers’ gear (including fixes to the Exotic Gear) and stats, alongside a host of gameplay improvements in preparation for the next content drop.
