Ubisoft talks about why older players might want to check out Starlink: Battle for Atlas

Ubisoft has made it clear that they originally set out to create Starlink: Battle for Atlas for younger players, but obviously they'd like people of all ages to check the game out. In an interview with GamesIndustry, creative director Laurent Malville discusses why older players can have fun with the experience as well.

"In the beginning, we developed the game with 8 to 12 year-olds in mind, but as we progressed with development, we observed that older players were also interested, especially the open-world and the systemic aspects. The game is designed for younger players primarily, but I think that a lot of older players will have a blast with the game. The big thing for us was to make sure we didn't talk down to younger players. Younger players today want to play those big, AAA, open-world experiences, but often the age ratings of those games are not appropriate. It was a point for us to have this big open world game, with some advanced mechanics, but that would be friendly for younger players."
