Atlas’ New World Map ‘The Maelstrom’ Launches For Xbox One and PC

World Map ‘The Maelstrom’ Added to Atlas

Developers Grapeshot Games have officially released a new world map for their project Atlas, a survival, pirate-themed MMO, initially released in December 2018.

The new map, named The Maelstrom, comes with several changes. While The Maelstrom will be smaller than the original map, developers have stated that this is to “intensify exploration.” Along with making it easier to find enemies and other players. The Maelstrom is designed in a circular pattern. With higher difficulty areas and combat areas towards the center, and safer areas along the edge. More updates on the game are expected soon.

Atlas is available on Steam and Xbox One. More information can be found on the game’s website.
