TRION’s turn-based strategy Atlas Reactor has launched its second season today and with it comes a change to the game’s business model.
The game is now fully free to play and a new currency called Flux has been added which can be earned by playing. This currency can be used to collect Freelancers, Mod Tokens, Master skins and more. In other words, the game has moved over to a more traditional free to play model.
Freelancers can also now be purchased separately and players can upgrade to the Premium Edition to unlock them all. Anyone who purchased the game previously will receive a thank-you package which will include loot matrices, in-game currency, an exclusive emblem, title and banner, and more.
This second season brings a new Freelancer to the action, Brynn the SkyWarden as well as the following content:
- New Freelancers – Players will now be able to play as Brynn, the Skywarden, who has the ability to create cover wherever she is and punish foes who underestimate her reach using her adjustable lance. Another new freelancer will be introduced later in Season 2.
- New Modes – With each of the five chapters comprising Season 2, a new gameplay mode will be introduced, starting with the All-Random Mode introduced today.
- New Loot – Dozens of new unique skins, emojis, overcons, ranked rewards, and more
- Revamped Intro Experience – A new and revamped introductory experience will help acquaint new players with the game’s mechanics and provide a more meaningful experience for prospective Freelancers.
- Rebalanced Freelancers and Ranked System – Various balance changes for all Freelancers have now been implemented. In a new and improved Ranked System, open to ALL players, players will now progress through Ranks with a more predictable result of gains and losses after each match. Players will no longer be able to drop Ranks but can drop tiers, and players who achieve Master Rank will enter a new leaderboard style system.
- More to Come – Season 2 is just beginning, and each of the season’s five chapters will bring new compelling lore, new challenges with new rewards, new choices for players to make that affect future content released, and more.
Atlas Reactor is an interesting game and if you’re a fan of turn-based tactics then it’s worth taking a look.
