Already available on Xbox One and PC, developer Studio Wildcard today has launched their dinosaur-infested adventure onto the PS4 in the US with their release of the ARK: Survival Evolved “Survivor’s Pack” today. This latest release in the ARK series was developed in concert with porting partner Abstraction Games, and includes both the base game, ARK: Survival Evolved, and the massive desert-themed expansion, ARK: Scorched Earth for $54.99 USD.
Today’s release of the ARK: Survivor’s Pack for the PS4 gives players an up-to-date version of ARK: Survival Evolved that includes the previously released content, plus Scorched Earth – ARK’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. PS4 Pro owners will also gain substantial performance improvements including a higher framerate, smoother animations and stunning visual effects.
ARK players on PS4 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 PS4, with a unique footprint of adventure, multiplayer online cooperation and competition, focused on the basic survival skills of crafting, harvesting, building, and exploration.
