Studio Wildcard, the team that never sleeps, is proud to hand deliver today the dinosaur-sized present XBOX One players have been waiting for — the first-ever online survival game to consoles with ARK: Survival Evolved. Launching today on Xbox Game Preview, players can now dive into this dynamic ecosystem where they will craft weapons, clothing, and tools, build multi-story houses, join and commune with other tribes, and tame, train, ride, and breed dinosaurs.
ARK: Survival Evolved is available now for download on Xbox Game Preview for $34.99 and includes all the content of its PC counterpart. XBOX One players will receive exclusive content including a Bionic “Tek” T-Rex, Safari Hat, and Survivor’s Trophy, free access to Xbox-specific ARK official servers (up to 70 can play on a server simultaneously), and a steady delivery of exclusive XBOX One content prior to full game launch in June 2016.
Built on Unreal Engine 4, ARK takes on the survival genre with a unique blend of emergent multiplayer cooperation and competition. Players awake naked and starving on a mysterious island, and must hunt, harvest, craft items, grow crops, and build shelters to survive. Tame as many as 100 amazing dinosaurs and other prehistoric beasts, including gargantuan creatures on a scale never before seen in video games! Fly a Pterodactyl squadron over snow-capped mountains, race through deep jungles with your pack of trained Raptors, tromp through a fortified enemy base with a convoy of gigantic Brontosaurus, or chase down prey on the back of a raging T-Rex.
ARK: Survival Evolved is expected to officially launch in June 2016 on XBOX One via the ID@Xbox program, Steam and on PlayStation®4 with Project Morpheus support.
