About this game
Play the role of a stranded human. Naked, freezing, and starving on the island of ARK, you must hunt, craft items, research technologies, or build shelters in order to survive. Team up with other players, or even prey on them – the choice is yours.
- ARK Survival Evolved features more than 30 dinosaurs and creatures that you can tame and adopt as your Pet.
- Pets are able to level up and consume food, as well as serve as additional carriers of Inventory and Equipment.
- As a survival game, you also have to eat and drink in order to keep yourself alive.
- The game also features a huge map that can take your exploration to another level, but you need not take the journey alone, as the game also incorporates a Tribe System which will allow you to add friends and create a Tribe.
It’s always more enjoyable to spend time with a game that tries something new and exciting, stumbling along the way, than a game that tries to tick focus group-inspired boxes.
For the past two years, ARK has been helping to shape the genre and now that it’s “finished,” it feels like the genre is due for the next stage of evolution.

Aberration sets players up in a damaged ARK where the atmosphere has been destroyed, this resulted in harsh radiation and biomes surviving underground. Everything in this ARK is malfunctioning, resulting in a lot of hazards, new creatures, 50+ new craftable items to use in the new environment and 5 new major biomes.
Extinction is where the story begins and ends. Play as a veteran survivor and face the ultimate challenge which is the huge roaming Titans that dominate the planet Earth.
