The dinosaur-infested survival game ARK: Survival Evolved is now available on PlayStation 4 from Studio Wildcard.
The PS4 exclusive release of ARK is called the ARK: Survivor’s Pack. It gives North American players an up-to-date version of ARK: Survival Evolved that includes the previously released content, plus Scorched Earth -- the game's first expansion pack. The Survivor’s Pack also includes exclusive PS4 content including a Bionic Giganotosaurus skin and an entire Manticore armor set for all male and female characters. Studio Wildcards says that PS4 Pro owners will get added benefits such as "substantial performance improvements" like a higher framerate, smoother animations, and stunning visual effects -- presumably compared to the standard PS4 or previous system (Xbox One and PC) releases.
ARK players on PlayStation 4 will also receive a constant stream of major updates packed with new dinosaurs, weapons, armor, mechanics, and lifestyle improvements, until it releases as a final product in Spring 2017.
Built on Unreal Engine 4, ARK: Survival Evolved is the first to deliver the popular-on-PC persistent online survival genre to both Xbox One and PlayStation 4, with a unique footprint of adventure, multiplayer online cooperation and competition, focused on the basic survival skills of crafting, harvesting, building, and exploration.
