Missed the whole Walking Titan event because I simply didn’t have time to play the game for months (haven’t even played 1.2 yet). But, the 1.3 update announcement says that, it’s for enhancing the Atlas story in No Man’s Sky.
However, even before the game launches, I’ve decided that, I want to just be myself rather than being a minion of Atlas, aka, choose the “non Atlas” route, ignoring the story and the “getting to the center of the galaxy” ending.
That seems fine, until now it seems that, the “role” of the player was supposed to be a researcher in Atlas… Which actually kinda make me feel weird since, it doesn’t sound that convincing that, someone having access to high-end VR equipment in Atlas would get into the virtual world while ignoring the mission… If the Atlas route was supposed to be an assigned mission to the player.
So… Could someone explain to me whether it still make sense to not follow Atlas’s guidance (give me an convincing story), since that’s what I wish to do?
I personally would consider it make more sense if Atlas starts to wipe my existence in the virtual world rather than this whole route is getting ignored.
(ps. I wasn’t even feeling 100% happy for the foundation update, to be honest, since I consider the feeling of “having no where to settle down” is a big part of the original game. That’s just my opinion, though. Yeah, I do have my base now, but, just wanna say that, being able to have a base, though is awesome, would kill the emotion a little bit.)
