Nitrado is the official hosting provider for Atlas and therefore the best place to build the open world MMO experience of your dreams. This sounds like an intimidating task, but don't worry! As with all of our games Nitrado will provide easy-to-use interfaces and tools to make the online world of your dreams a virtual reality.


Exploration in Atlas will be a major part of the game. Find permanent sunken wrecks to recover salvage, or unearth loot from an acquired Treasure Map. Stake your claim in this endless open world as you conquer territory, search for buried treasure, plunder settlements and hire a crew to join your growing armada. From larger and smaller islands to wide open oceans, there is much to explore. More than 50 creatures populate the Atlas at launch varying from common farm animals & shoulder mounted parrots to monkeys that offer unique buffs. The world of Atlas is not without creatures of legend.


Seek fortune and glory, build and administer your own colonies, cities, and civilizations to dominate the ATLAS! Choose between five different ships types and build drydocks to construct your ship. Whether a tiny sloop or a titanic galleon, you have free range over building your ship plank by plank! Assemble forts and settlements to stake your claim. Featuring an overhauled building system to provide a unique experience to build the fort and ship of your dreams!


Players will be able to form a company and claim territory. On your territory, you can apply taxation and behavior rules to lands that which you own. Become a beloved governor, or be despised as a ruthless dictator. With the help of your dynamic zoomable world map, territory ownership is easily visualized. The world map will include a Fog of War obscuring uncharted regions and a Shroud of War hiding enemy territories out of sight range. Expand your empire and contest other Governments to display your dominance. Design your own custom flag and apply them to your claims. In Atlas, take control to conquer land and sea!
