What kind of game is Ark: Survival Evolved?

But back to the topic, after all, this is about the currently free predecessor. Ark: Survival Evolved is a purebred Open world survival game, which has been delighting a proud group of players for years. In Ark you wake up stark naked on the beach of a tropical island and – unsurprisingly – have to fight for your survival.

In Ark you don’t just have to deal with hunger, thirst and – if you play in online mode – other players, but also with a wide variety of stomps dinosaur over the island. About Dilophosaurus, Brontosaurus or the Tyrannosaurus Rex, just to name a few examples. However, Ark dinosaurs can also become pets once you are able to tame them. The primeval animal not only serves as your new best friend, but also as a mount and protector.

Crafting and base building also plays an important role in Ark: Survival Evolved. And this is where the game’s sci-fi impact comes into its own: if you’re not satisfied with a dingy wooden bow, you can eventually fall back on ion cannons and similar fun. All you have to do is play long enough.

Who is Ark: Survival Evolved interesting for?

In Ark: Survival Evolved the personal development of your character is very important. Because if you die on the screen, you will lose all the equipment you currently have with you, but unlocked upgrades and blueprints will remain. So if you’re a fan of base building in a tough survival setting, you can take a look at Ark with a clear conscience.

However, you should bring a powerful PC with you. Ark may be a few years old, but the decent graphics in Unreal Engine 4 come at a price. If you want to experience Survival Evolved under optimal conditions, you should be ready to satisfy the hardware hunger of the survival game.

Dinosaurs, Dinosaurs, Dinosaurs: Dino fans probably can’t avoid Ark anyway. The unique selling point of tame and rideable dinosaurs makes Ark quite unique in the survival genre.
