Ark: Survival Evolved Set To Launch On Xbox Game Preview This Christmas
Looks like Santa’s Elves aren’t the only team who’ve been doing some sneaky work this year: Studio Wildcard, the talented dev team behind Ark: Survival Evolved, announced today that their ambitious survival game will be available to Xbox One players starting 16th December 2015.
Xbox One players will be able to jump straight into the open-world survival action as the game is released via the [email protected] self-publishing program. The Xbox edition will launch with all the content currently in the PC build, and is set to include an exclusive bionic “Tek” T-Rex, Safari Hat and Survivor’s Trophy, as well as free access to the Ark official Xbox servers – all for $34.99. Additionally the game launches with a fully-tailored set of controls for the Xbox One gamepad, ensuring that you can start hunting dinosaurs straight away.
Jesse Rapczak, co-creative director and co-founder of Studio Wildcard, had this to say in their press release:
Ark is running beautifully on Xbox One, we’re really proud to deliver the first open-world online survival experience on console, a genre that is typically found only in PC games. Steam’s Early Access has given us a strong method to quickly iterate on player feedback, creating a strong relationship with our fans that constantly makes the game more fun. With Microsoft implementing a similar program, we’re able to form a direct connection between console players and our team, the likes of which has never before been possible
Ark has already had more than 2.5 million downloads since it’s launch in June via Steam’s Early Access Program, and it looks to become even more popular this holiday season.
Ark: Survival Evolved is expected to officially launch in June 2016 on Xbox One, Steam PC and on Playstation 4 with Project Morpheus support, and both the PC and Xbox versions can expect periodic updates until then.
