When is the Atlas Fallen release date? It’s time to take to the sands and endure against god-like creatures full of malice in Atlas Fallen, a new action-RPG hack-and-slash from Focus Entertainment and Deck13 Interactive. It’s safe to say that this is one of the more interesting titles on the horizon, and we can’t wait to learn more about it. So, that’s why we have thrown together everything we know about Atlas Fallen, including the Atlas Fallen release date and what to expect when it launches below.

When Atlas Fallen releases, it will be up against some stiff competition, including Baldur’s Gate 3 and Armored Core. Though, we’ll have to wait and see whether it ranks among the best PS5 RPG games or the best Xbox RPG games. With strange sand-bending abilities and ancient elemental magic at your disposal, it’s fair to say that this is going to make players feel powerful as they battle it out against larger-than-life monsters in the ruins that scatter this strange world.

When is the Atlas Fallen release date?

The Atlas Fallen release date is Wednesday, August 9, 2023, at 3 pm PT, 6 pm ET, 11 pm BST, and Thursday, August 10, 2023, at 00:00 CEST on PS5, Xbox Series X|S and PC. The game was delayed from the original launch of May 16, 2023, but is finally now out.

The game was originally set to arrive on May 16, 2023, but Focus Entertainment announced a delay via its official Twitter account. The announcement says that the developers need extra time to “create a memorable A-RPG experience”.

Unfortunately, those on PS4 and Xbox One consoles won’t be able to play Atlas Fallen. Likely, Deck13 is focusing on ensuring the game is up to their standards on the current-gen consoles, especially with such a technically impressive game which could struggle on last-gen consoles.

Atlas Fallen story

Atlas Fallen is set in a ruined world where great god-like creatures roam. It’s set in a high fantasy post-apocalypse with unusual magic being used alongside rudimentary technology like horse-drawn carts.

Not much is known about the story of the game just yet, but we should see and hear more as we approach the release date.

Atlas Fallen gameplay

In Atlas Fallen, you’ll hunt mythical beasts and monsters using a range of magical powers, thanks to a powerful gauntlet in fast-paced third-person action.

Players will be able to switch out abilities and create their own playstyle, so if you like a game where you can change things to fit how you play, then Atlas Fallen is an exciting one. You can even play with a friend. You can see some of the gameplay in a recent gameplay reveal trailer below:

We got to check out the game at Gamescom 2022 and found a Breath of the Wild-style open-world experience, but with a number of exciting and unique ideas of its own.

That is everything we know about the Atlas Fallen release date. We’re definitely adding it to our best upcoming Xbox games and upcoming PS5 games list, but it remains to be seen if it can land on our best RPG games list.
