Atlas’ new Maelstrom map arrives on Xbox One and PC
Grapeshot Games has released a new update for massively multiplayer pirate adventure Atlas that introduces a brand new world map.
The new map, titled The Maelstrom, is designed to shift gameplay from the land to the open seas, according to the developer. Maelstrom has a circular design with a higher difficulty and features more lawless waters in the middle. Supplies are also spread out across the world on this map to encourage players to travel.
This update also reduces gold drops from Army of Dead, reduces island claim upkeep costs, adjusts the early game XP curve, and reduces the difficulty of Army of Dead Treasure Guards. Take a look at the full patch notes here.
Atlas is available now on Xbox One and PC.
