There’s a lot you can do with the basic mechanics of Atlas, it seems, as exemplified by the game’s Blackwood map. This was teased back in May (and we’ve included the teaser trailer for it) and it looks wildly different than anything else in the game, a standalone map meant to alter the nature of gameplay and face players with new challenges. And back when it was teased it was promised for players in early June, a date that is now vanishing back into history.
But don’t worry, there’s a happy ending here; it’s confirmed on Twitter that the map is arriving this Friday, so it can be used on single servers as it was intended. Check out the teaser just below if you’ve forgotten how the whole thing looks, although it’s pretty memorable regardless.
