An Out-Of-This-World Chance for Gaming Fans to Play Starlink ‘Battle for Atlas’ Two Months Early at KidZania London
For gaming fans across the UK eagerly awaiting the hotly anticipated launch of Starlink, the new intergalactic space game from Ubisoft, the wait may be over sooner than you think. While the game isn’t due for release until Tuesday 16 October, KidZania London – the indoor city run by kids at Westfield White City, is launching a brand new Starlink Space Station activity on Tuesday 14 August, giving gamers the chance to trial the game two whole months ahead of its official release.
The Starlink Space Station, created in partnership with Ubisoft, will aim to inspire visitors to learn more about the solar system by taking them on an exciting adventure through the living star system of Atlas.
Split over two rooms, Interstellar Space Cadets will first be briefed on their mission and learn all about Atlas, the real triple star system with seven planets. Cadets will then learn how to customise and create the space model of their dreams in the Starlink Battle for Atlas game, before embarking on a journey through the Atlas Star System by playing the game.
Testing and navigating their ship, they will explore how each planet has it’s own ecosystem, wildlife and secrets to uncover. Along the way, they’ll encounter many challenges that they will have to act upon carefully, encouraging strong thinking and problem-solving skills.
Eddie Kemsley, CEO at KidZania comments:“We are over the moon to be partnering with Ubisoft to offer this exciting opportunity to our visitors. The new activity really aims to bring learning about the solar system to life in a fun and unique way. Gamers will have the chance to play in a way that they won’t be able to experience at home, and an exciting two months ahead of the official launch. We know the Starlink Space Station will prove a hugely popluar addition to the city.”
Wayne Greenwell, Senior Brand Manager at Ubisoft UK comments: “We’re excited to be able to offer visitors the chance to be the first in the UK to sample Starlink Battle for Atlas as we prepare to launch. We’re really proud of the fantastic experience the team at Ubisoft Toronto have produced and can’t wait for players to get their hands on it; after all, what child doesn’t dream of being able to travel beyond our own solar system and seeing what adventures lie in wait?”
