As a man or woman stranded naked, freezing and starving on a mysterious island, you must hunt, harvest, craft items, grow crops, and build shelters to survive. Use skill and cunning to kill, tame, breed, and ride dinosaurs and primeval creatures living on ARK, and team up with hundreds of players or play locally.
Overcome the odds to create a new world in Ark: Survival Evolved. Full of plot twists and packed with dinosaurs, this game pits human against prehistoric beast in a battle of wits set on a remote island. Play by yourself or online in a group as you find shelter, gather resources and build your dinosaur herd in Ark: Survival Evolved.
- Capture and Tame Dinosaurs: Discover over 100 different dinosaurs and prehistoric creatures on the island, finding ways to tame them into useful additions for your tribe’s dino herd.
- Survive Above All: Hunger, thirst, basic safety and protecting yourself from the weather are all part of the game. Run too far and not only will you be exhausted, but you will also quickly get hungry and thirsty. Weather effects are based on real-world climates, and so you’ll need to hide out from rain and snow, while making the most of sunny days.
- Harvest, Hunt and Build: Cut down trees and turn them into a basic home, which you can quickly expand into a Jurassic estate. Hunt for meat, scavenge for plants (or start your own garden!) * Gather Resources, Customize Everything: An extensive crafting system invites you to mix and match materials scavenged from the island, while also modifying the colors, textures, shapes and style of everything from the walls of your home, to your character’s armor, weapons and more.
- Explore the Island: Solve the mystery of The ARK as you explore this massive island, discovering Explorer’s Notebooks (filled with clues!) throughout. Make your way to the final boss and figure out why you’ve been dropped into this Jurassic-era experience.
