With Jurassic World just around the corner there really couldn’t be a better time for Studio Wildcard to announce their latest game. ARK: Survival Evolved, is an open-world dinosaur survival game where players fight for every breath amongst the most ferocious creatures to ever walk the earth. It’s currently in development for PS4, Xbox One, PC, Mac, and Linux, However on the 2nd June ARK: Survival Evolved will launch on Steam’s Early Access program, for survivors to begin exploring the vast, formidable environment and its many secrets.
This survival game brings together the multiplayer elements of cooperation and competition together, players awake naked and starving on the beach of a mysterious island among a herd of other confused humans. In ARK, they must then hunt, harvest, craft, research technology, and build shelters to protect against scorching days, freezing nights, volatile weather systems, dangerous wildlife, and potential enemies.
Use cunning strategy and tactics to tame and ride the many dinosaurs and other primeval creatures roaming the dynamic, persistent ecosystems across land, sea, air, and even underground. Build your character’s strengths and gain items, skills, and pet creatures using in-depth role-playing systems. Start a tribe with hundreds of other players to survive and dominate competing tribes…and ultimately discover the ARK’s true purpose.
Tame one of 60 amazing dinosaurs and other prehistoric beasts, including gargantuan creatures on a scale never before seen in video games! Fly a Pterodactyl squadron over the snow-capped mountains, race through the deep jungle with your pack of trained Raptors, tromp through a fortified enemy base along a convoy of gigantic Brontosaurus, or chase down prey on the back of a raging T-Rex. Players will quickly learn that dinosaurs aren’t the only dangerous creatures on the island. Other players are organizing rebel tribes to accumulate resources, experience, re-spawn points, and to construct sprawling villages and cities, with technology spanning the primitive stone-age to the modern electric-powered era and beyond. And they will fight to destroy anything they see as a threat.
ARK: Survival Evolved will launch in early 2016 on PS4, Xbox One via the ID@Xbox program and Steam, including Oculus Rift VR support and a thorough integration of Steam community features such as Steam Economy and Steam Workshop for custom maps and mods. The world of ARK is designed to be player-oriented and will be ever-expanding!
