The Travellers are the fourth alien race.
Summary[edit | edit source]
Travellers can be randomly found at space stations, camps and trading posts and can give the location of a Traveller Grave when interacted with. They are very rare and difficult to find. They can also be found at freighters, but cannot be interacted with in this case.
Appearance[edit | edit source]
Most Travellers have slim humanoid bodies and the same average height, but besides that their physical features can greatly vary. They have been found with cat-like, bug-like, and amphibious-like facial features, or even entirely alien or with robotic heads. Apollo is a traveller whose body was almost entirely replaced by a mechanical casing, and -null- has a body that seems to be composed of large wires and computer plugs.
All NPC Travellers seem to appear as holographic displays rather than physical bodies, when they guide the player to a grave, it is revealed that the Travellers that gave them the directions are dead.
Lore[edit | edit source]
The coming of the Travellers, however unlikely, had been predicted ages ago by the Korvax Echoes.
The Travellers are entities created by the Atlas with a scan of its Creator's mind. The player character is the last Traveller created. Because of the Atlas' imminent death, the boundaries between realities are starting to fall apart, and now Travellers can see each other from the past, future, or alternate realities, as hologram-like individuals or as glitches. According to the Rogue Data and the last Traveller interaction, in the final minutes before the death of the Atlas, the Travellers will be able to fully interact with each other and explore galaxies together.

A list of all Traveller text interactions and possible outcomes. There are 20 unique interactions, and it seems like they follow a linear progression instead of being random.
Additional information[edit | edit source]
- The Fourth Race was hinted at in the game and in the Waking Titan ARG before the release of Atlas Rises.
- One rather dark Traveller interaction concerns a mathematical proof that "goodness doesn't exist", a clear reference to George R. Price.
Release history[edit | edit source]
