Atlas Fallen Requires 25-30 Hours for Every Task, Side Activities Revealed

Players will discover “many puzzles hidden in the world,” like treasure maps leading to riches, and watch towers with challenging encounters.

Deck13’s action RPG Atlas Fallen was one of the big titles set for May but ultimately faced a delay to August. While the developer works on polishing the game, co-founder and creative director Jan Klose spoke to SegmentNext about its length. How long it takes to complete the story is unknown, but if you want to finish every task, it can take about 25 to 30 hours.

Aside from the main quest, there are various side activities. How do they differ from the side quests? Klose replied, “Apart from a lot of side quests, there are many puzzles hidden in the world. For example, you can acquire treasure maps that will lead you to hidden riches…but sometimes the map has been torn to pieces, requiring another round of treasure hunt beforehand!

“Also, there are relics of old that can be activated, and some might lead you on a path that you must follow to find more secrets.” Watch towers also have an evil spell on their share of the land. Defeat the challenging enemy responsible, and you can transform part of the level (presumably lifting the spell).

Atlas Fallen is coming to Xbox Series X/S, PS5 and PC on August 10th. It’s set in a post-apocalyptic world where corrupt gods have terraformed the world and subjugated humans. Some rebel, including the protagonist, who wields a magical gauntlet to conjure sand weapons.
