Astral ATLAS Relaunch – 7×7 Official Layout

We are pleased to announce the relaunch of Astral ATLAS servers! The new map will be going live on Sunday 26th of July at 11:00AM UK time!

Astral ATLAS has been fully redesigned from the ground up increasing in size from a 5×5 to 7×7. Also we are one of, if not the only major unofficial ATLAS server to follow the new official map layout so far.

We have chosen to follow the new official layout to ensure we are aligned with the future changes the devs plan to release that could benefit from the map being in a particular layout. The future Trade Winds feature for example is one such area we expect will benefit from this.

* While you will have enough points to claim two islands, you are only allowed one per company. This is so you can still declare war and take over another island if you so wish. Once the war is over, you will have some time to unclaim the first settlement, but this should be done as quickly as possible.


Look forward to seeing you all on the high seas!
