Description

Game Preview This game is a work in progress. It may or may not change over time or release as a final product. Purchase only if you are comfortable with the current state of the unfinished game. Full details on the latest status of the game, how you can give feedback and report issues can be found at http://survivetheark.com/. *PEGI RATING IS PROVISIONAL ARK: Survival Evolved on Xbox One includes an exclusive bionic “Tek” T-Rex and Safari Hat, free access to Xbox-specific ARK official servers, and a steady delivery of exclusive content prior to full game launch in June 2016. Stranded on the shores of a mysterious island, you must learn to survive. Use your cunning to kill or tame the primeval creatures roaming the land, and encounter other players to survive, dominate... and escape! TAME, TRAIN, BREED & RIDE DINOSAURS, IN A LIVING ECOSYSTEM Over 50 creatures can be tamed using a challenging subdue-&-protect process. Weaken a feral creature to knock it out, and then nursing it to health. Once tamed, you can issue commands to your Pet, which it may follow depending on how well you’ve tamed and trained it. Pets continue to level-up and consume food, and carry Inventory and Equipment. Fly a Pteranodon over the mountains, race through the jungle with a pack of Raptors, or chase down prey on a T-Rex! Experience a dynamic ecosystem with its own predator & prey hierarchies. Breed Pets through successive generations to generate the best traits. Or put more simply, breed & raise Dino Babies! FOOD, WATER, TEMPERATURE AND WEATHER Eat and drink to survive, with different foods having different nutritional values (including human meat!). All actions drain food and water, and long-distance travel is draining. Inventory weight slows you down, and the day/night cycle and weather alter the environment. Craft clothing, build shelter, and use fire to protect yourself against damage & the elements. HARVEST, CRAFT, AND PAINT ITEMS Harvest trees, ore, and more to become a master crafter. Use your hands, a Smithy, or a Fabricator to craft increasingly complex and powerful gear. Build a massive base using modular pieces--ranging from Thatch, to Wood, to Stone, to Metal. Customize your base by painting it and placing signs that you can actually draw on. Weapons, clothing, & armor gear can also be painted to express your own visual style. SUMMON THE ULTIMATE LIFE FORMS Bring rare items to special Summon locations to awaken the ARK’s mythical creatures, who arrive ready for battle. These monstrosities provide an end-game goal for the most experienced Tribes and their Pets, and yield valuable items if they are defeated. RPG STATISTICS Level-Up your survivor by gaining experience through in-game actions to learn new crafting Engrams, or find higher level item Blueprints in the most dangerous parts of the ARK. Customize the look of your character with a complex character creation system. HARDCORE MECHANICS Items have durability and wear out with use if not repaired. When you leave the game, your character remains “sleeping” in the persistent world. Your inventory also exists in the persistent world, vulnerable to theft. Death means permanent loss, and you can even enslave other players for your own purposes. LARGE WORLD PERSISTENCE On the 64+ player servers, your character, everything you built, and your pets stay in-game even when you leave. Special themed events will occur in the world with corresponding limited-run items!

Would be 5 star BUT

Im loving this game and i understand its unfinished but the freezing gets old fast im playing solo and it will freeze when im storing items and i lose about the last 10min to 3hrs of work you should put a better auto save system in place and let the gamer choose the intervals so we dont lose so much work...... i would rate a 5 if thats to happen with release. This is an absolute beautiful game n fun once you grasp the main concept. The mix between prehistoric to futurestic is genious n gameplays awsome but just work on the freezing n glitch outs of the gameplay n this game would be perfect. For those looking for a challenging game n unique gameplay this is it if you can get past frequent freezes, just logout so it saves often if you dont wana lose alot of your progress. A must have for survival gamers.

Fun ... but

I enjoyed the game very fun, but the public servers are horrible you join a server to find most of if not all supply drops blocked off, than if that's not bad enough a vast majority of the servers (mostly the dlc servers) the moment you join you are asked "who gave you permission to be on this server" this is not okay you pay more money just to be harassed into leaving the server. on a different note a large amount of the in game text chat is people trying to sell in game items via PayPal. to sum up good game but they need to find a way to regulate people who are going to far.

A great character builder, you will be broken

Survival is real with Hunger, dehydration, hypothermia, disease, and predators. The various beast can be both terrifying enemies and reliable comrades. Building in this world is only limited to the imagination of the individual. The world is vast, and contains secrets and rare resources that can be used to craft various items. These items range from stone age to futuristic technology. Clothing, tools, structures, weapons, an everything that is made can be painted to express unique style. HOWEVER, this game is not for the faint of heart. Everything in this game is EARNED through hard work and time. literal hours will be spent doing tedious things. YOU WILL LOSE EVERYTHING. It is guaranteed. You are not cut out for this game if you cannot deal with adversity, loss, and helplessness. Online is brutal, you need nerves of steel. Between the dangerous environment and the even more viscous people, It takes extreme will power to conquer the ARK. All of this is why I haven't stopped playing.

Time consuming yet very enjoyable!

Easily the best game I've ever played, the Developers are constantly updating and adding features, and mind that this is a GAME PREVIEW. Glitches and bugs can happen, nevertheless a great investment.

Best Sandbox/MMORPG

On top of being the best Dinosaur with sprinkles of mythical creatures game on the market. Ibought the game Day 1 on Xbox and it is still one my favorite games to play. No matter if you crave the intensity of not only dinos, climate but also up to 100 people trying to kill and rob you in the extremely unforgiving PVP, or if you enjoy breeding, casual gameplay and not having to fight other people you have a still fun and rewarding PVE mode. If you perfer to not play with others there a solo mode which still offers the same rewards. This game features a mode for every survivor with over 100 dinos there is always something to do. Although due to the majority adult player base this is definitely a rated M game.

Best Early Access out there!

Really enjoy this game. But it keeps crashing. Which sucks unless you force save often. I just finished a bunch of stuff. Game crashed. Lost progress. Sick of doing things twice. Stop adding things and finish the game already! Unacceptable! Crashing simply cant happen in this genre of gaming.

One of the better survival games

It is easily one of my favorite games, ive only had the original up until a couple days ago, and scorched earth presented a whole new challenge, that almost whooped me multiple times, and i personally never ran into any bugs except tht occasionally when my friend died and his body would stretch out to cover half the world.

Awesome!

I love Ark. It is my FAVORITE survival game out there! There is so much possibility in this game, pretty much endless. Now, I REALLY do long for one thing: different game modes. The game is beautiful, which is why a creative mode in which you could freely build, tame, or downright experiment in is a wasted idea. Either that, or give the ability to have multiple saves, that way we can have one save in which we can survive in, and another to take advantage of that cheat menu. I'd prefer a combo of both. Other than that, everything is AMAZING. Keep up the good work Wildcard. This game is a masterpiece in the making! 👍👍👍

Needs a save function

This game is awesome and I could spend hours on it if that weren't already the case. Enemies who can 1 to 2 shot you really make game where you can't save manually not fun at all. I've had to build everything from the ground up more than 12 times and just to get it wiped out by dinos or a brute tribe. If there was a save button I wouldn't mind so much but there isn't and untill there is this game is just build. die. repeat.
