Starlink: Battle for Atlas - Xbox One Starter Pack plus Display Stand #XboxTogether

A few weeks ago, my son and I were recruited to join an elite team and embark on a special mission - Starlink: Battle for Atlas. This brand new action-adventure game, created by Ubisoft Toronto, allows players to travel seamlessly throughout the Atlas star system and discover exotic alien planets, each with their own ecosystem, wildlife and secrets. To help us on our mission, we received a little care package that included a Starlink: Battle for Atlas starter pack for our Xbox One and a display stand. What makes this game so unique is the ability to custom build your starship in real life and see it appear instantly on screen!

We first gave Starlink: Battle for Atlas a try at the #XboxTogether holiday preview earlier this fall and it was one of my son's favourites. To be able to select a starship, attach the weapons of your choice and mount it to your Xbox controller was the epitome of cool in his eyes. You can even experiment with the different attachments in real-time as you play, which proves handy once you become familiar with your enemies and learn which weapons prove most effective.

After my son set up his Zenith Starship and started out on his mission, I could hear him exclaim, "This is so cool!" multiple times, commenting on how easily he learned to manoeuvre his ship and how smoothly it travelled. His shouts of excitement were too compelling to ignore so I soon found myself taking over his game. For me, I was happy to find the video to be fairly stable in the sense that I didn't find the constant movement overwhelming, unlike some of the racing games he likes to play. It is also a relief to know that the game is rated Everyone 10+.
