In a revolutionary leap for the gaming industry, Star Atlas, in collaboration with MetaGravity, is setting a new global standard for online multiplayer games. This groundbreaking partnership is bringing the world its first super-massive game size, boasting record numbers of simultaneous players, AI-driven non-player characters (NPCs), and interactive objects—all within a single, persistent universe.
Harnessing MetaGravity’s Technology: A Game-Changer
The uniqueness of this collaboration lies in its integration of MetaGravity's state-of-the-art technology. Traditional gaming systems could only support up to a hundred concurrent players in a shared environment. This limitation, which persisted for over a decade, has finally been shattered. Now, Star Atlas, backed by the might of MetaGravity, has achieved the previously unthinkable—over 30,000 co-players in a shared game environment, with prospects of even higher numbers in the future.
The power of this new technological marvel was on display at the Solana PlayGG Game Festival in San Diego, where a successful 5,000-player stress test was conducted using advanced interactive bots in a persistent environment. This technology is scheduled to be fully incorporated into the Star Atlas game on Unreal Engine 5 after a forthcoming update on the Epic Game Store.
Infinite Scalability: The New Standard
Michael Wagner, Co-founder of Star Atlas and CEO of ATMTA, reflected on the game's ambitious objectives, stating, "Star Atlas was always envisioned to redefine the player experience." He emphasized the game's grand scale and its commitment to offering a consistent reality for all players. Wagner further highlighted the pivotal role of MetaGravity in turning this vision into reality.
Rashid Mansoor, the driving force behind MetaGravity, echoed this sentiment. He expressed pride in their pragmatic approach to the industry's challenges and emphasized the shared vision with Star Atlas to elevate the gaming experience.
MetaGravity's state-of-the-art platform is an infinitely scalable metaverse engine, challenging the constraints of contemporary spatial partitioning engines. It promises enhanced performance, unlimited scalability, and cost-efficiency—ushering in a new era for game developers like Star Atlas.
Conclusion: A New Horizon for the Gaming Industry
The Star Atlas and MetaGravity partnership symbolizes more than just a technological breakthrough—it represents a monumental shift in how we perceive the limitations of online gaming. As the gaming landscape evolves, this partnership is poised to lead the way, offering gamers an unparalleled experience in a vast, dynamic universe, limited only by imagination.
