Atlas Reactor Brings Competitive Turn-Based Action to PC on October 4 (Video)

Trion Worlds announced that its simultaneous turn-based battle arena game Atlas Reactor will launch on October 4 for Steam and Glyph. The fast-paced team tactics game is available now for pre-purchase through Trion or Steam for £15.49; when Atlas Reactor officially launches on October 4, it will carry the full retail price of £22.99.

Beginning today, gamers looking to get a taste of the game’s strategic, fast-paced action can put their skills to the test in the Atlas Reactor Open Beta (Sept 15 – 25). Founders who pre-purchase the game can jump into the full game early during Head Start, which begins September 30.

In celebration of Atlas Reactor’s Open Beta kickoff, Trion has also unveiled the first full-length trailer for the game, a glorious 3-minute cinematic created in partnership with award-winning visual effects firm Blur Studio.

Described by Polygon as “Dota meets XCOM,” Atlas Reactor reinvents tactical team combat, combining competitive, fast-paced action with simultaneous turns in high-stakes, high-risk battles. Players must  outsmart and outgun their fellow Freelancers with mere seconds to survey the field, coordinate with their team and lock in their moves, all while watching the action play out all at the same time. By working together as a team and predicting your opponents’ actions, players must devise the best strategy to put themselves one step ahead of the opposition and achieve victory.
