In this new experience, Virtual World explorers have exclusive territorial rights to the remains of the mythic city, recently discovered in the ocean depths of the African coast. While the theme of Voyage to Atlantis stresses exploration, there are inherent dangers in depth-sea adventures of any type. For this reason, each pilot is equipped with the most advanced virtual submarine available. Up to eight participating pilots are encouraged to exclavate the artifacts of Atlantis in the new cooperative scenario, which is a vast departure from other virtual adventures that are based typically on competition. This cooperative mode is tested by the eruption of an undersea volcano that traps a submarine and requires all pilots to combine skills to rescue their fellow explorers in danger.

The ruins of Atlantis are inhabited by luminous and iridescent creatures an exotic fish such as manta-rays, parrot and agel fish, sharks, and several species of marine life heretofore never encountered. Other sights include shipwrecks, sunken battleships, and the wild amalgam of ancient European and Middle Eastern architecture of the ruins themselves.
