What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Atlas Rogues isn’t a sequel. It’s a new game with fresh gameplay dynamics. With countless sequences available, it is impossible to test every condition and how each design aspect plays out in specific cases.

Community satisfaction is our top priority, which means community feedback is our most valuable motivator and clearest compass. We want to offer Atlas Rogues on Steam as a way of establishing dialogue with our community.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“During early access we will constantly be working on implementing new features, characters, and additional content. We have a rough timing in our schedules, but our foremost goal is to make sure, we can provide the game experience the community expects. Therefore, we will constantly be listening to the community´s feedback where new ideas and features might come up and need to be implemented.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“Skins: Cosmetic costumes to wear and show off on each character.

Localization: German and French language support.

More Lancers & Content: The full version of the game will increase the number of playable characters (by a lot), as well as add more content across all our core systems based on player input (also a lot). ​

4 New Gameplay Features: Catalysts, Veterans, Rivals, and Taunts will come online over the course of the Early Access period. (More on those someday soon.)​

More Co-Op & End Game: We plan to add additional co-op run options and leaderboards, as well as more mastery activities like difficulty modifiers, daily runs, and an additional “true” end boss.​

Story Enhancements: The game’s story elements and tutorial will be revised once we’ve finalized our complete list of unlockable content and true ending (and add a few more scripting tools).”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

  • Online Co-op is functioning and unlock progress can be shared.​
  • 10 Freelancers to collect (4 default and 6 to unlock)​
  • 100+ Gear & Talent options to mix and match.​
  • Dynamic Combat Missions randomize the arenas every run.​
  • 3 Trust Strongholds so far, each guarded by a Trust boss, as well as 8 variants for the boss showdown at the Reactor. ​
  • 20+ Escalation Events to randomize the power of friends and foes each run.​
  • 50+ Challenges, with some characters and other content locked behind them.​
  • 30+ Recons in the game, with unique choices available if you put the right lancers on your team.

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“Maybe. If we can add a lot of content as we intend to during Early Access, we might increase the base price of the game after the Early Access.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“We will use channels such as the community hub and other social media such as Discord, Twitter and Reddit.

Players know a great game when they see one, and they know what can make a good game great. We want to know their ideas and we want to implement them when possible.

The nature of Atlas Rogues means there are thousands of possibilities within a single match, which makes them impossible to test one by one. We would ask the players to report the bugs and imbalanced situations.”

About This Game

Time is ticking in the city of Atlas. It’s up to you to prevent the Reactor from melting down. Recruit your team from an ever-growing roster of fierce freelancers to recover the Reactor keys from the evil Trusts.

Experience rogue-lite gameplay like never before as you complete dynamic missions and navigate deadly combat zones to kill the Necrolancers while evading their attacks. Fail to stop the meltdown and watch as time loops back, filling every new run with unique content.

Whether playing solo or with a group of friends in exhilarating co-op, every move matters in turn-based PvE combat, so strategize wisely how to grow your power and gather the intel you need to defeat the Trust bosses. Your squad has to work together to survive together in this thrilling addition to the Atlas universe.


Countdown to Meltdown
Time is ticking in the city of Atlas. In 30 days, the last Reactor on the planet will explode, along with everything else. Only you can stop it, but the Trusts stand in your way. Before you can save the city, you’ll need to recruit a team and earn enough funds (ISO) to survive. Defeat Trust forces in fast-paced, dynamic encounters to earn the cash and equipment you’ll need to take on the Trust bosses. Reach out to lancer contacts to gather enough intel to reveal the location of their strongholds, then steal their Reactor keys to solve the dark mystery behind the meltdown.

Rogue-Lite Gameplay
Can't stop the meltdown in time? Watch as time loops, but your experience and memories remain.

When the loop resets, the content changes, making every run unique. Dynamic missions and rewards force you to strategize how best to gather the intel and gear you need to take on the Trust strongholds. As you grow your power, the Trusts will improve their troops with random escalations, keeping you on your toes. If you have the ISO to spare, reach out to lancer contacts to see if you can buy the secrets and ammo you need directly. Mix and match different freelancers to see what combinations of gameplay and events are revealed!

Every run unlocks new characters, talents, gear, missions and story elements that you can use to help stop the loop and save Atlas.

Singleplayer and Co-Op Multiplayer Action
Take control of a crew of four freelancers or assign each of them to a friend to earn unlockables together. Collect and swap out characters between each loop to find your favorite crew. Assemble your best team of four freelancers to defeat the Trusts and save the Reactor before the meltdown.

Turn-Based PvE Combat
The tactical team combat flows back and forth between player and enemy turns in short, fast-paced battles. Switch back and forth between your lancer abilities to set up the perfect combo, then predict the enemy turn with precisely placed traps. Gather gear and develop your talents to supercharge your abilities and take on the Trust bosses themselves!

Recruit Your Freelancers
Collect a large cast of vibrant characters ranging from explosive inventors and rage-fueled battle cats to robotic puppies and fishmen with unhealthy obsessions. Every character has their own unique set of abilities and talents; having the right character at the right time can unlock new event choices. Every run through the loop will earn freelancers experience points, which unlock more talents, missions, events, and even other lancers!

Endless Unlocks
Every run unlocks new characters, talents, missions, gear and story that can help you stop the loop and save Atlas.

Escalating Difficulty
As the days count down, enemy Trusts upgrade their forces from a growing pool of Escalation Events, promising new challenges every time you play.

Character Choices
Every lancer enables different missions and choices based on their relationships with the other characters. Exploring these options can unlock new content for your future runs.

Discover the World of Atlas
Delve deeper into the story of Atlas with every loop as you unlock story fragments that will help you discover the true threat behind the meltdown.
