Promising 40,000+ simultaneous players, as well as a massive player-run world, Atlas is shaping up to be an exciting new entry in Steam’s Early Access library. Of course, as players prepare to set sail in this new and dangerous world, many are trying to figure out exactly when the game will go live. Here’s what time Atlas releases, so you can prepare to dive into the game and try it out.

When Does Atlas Release?

Atlas is currently set to release on December 19, however the Steam page doesn’t show an exact release time, so many players are confused about when they can expect to be able to dive into the game. Fortunately, the developers have a countdown active, which you can see by traveling over to the official Atlas website.

According to the countdown, Atlas should release around 6pm EST, or 3PM PST. That should give players a pretty large window of time to purchase the game, download it, and dive in this evening. Of course, this is always subject to change due to last minute delays, so make sure you keep an eye on the countdown timer on the official webpage to stay up to date with the latest release information.

Once Atlas releases, we’ll be diving into it headfirst to provide you with the most informative and up-to-date strategy information, so make sure you check back here later to see all the different strategies that we have to offer as you take on this massive, new world.
