'Ark Park' (ALL) Gets Release Date

by Rainier on Feb. 7, 2018 @ 6:20 p.m. PST

ARK Park is a VR experience that will transport players to a futuristic dinosaur theme park where they can watch, learn about, and interact with more than a hundred Jurassic-period creatures and dinosaurs while they explore the park.

Designed from the ground up as a realistic dinosaur theme park simulation, ARK Park allows players to freely traverse the grounds without any restrictions whatsoever. There’s no set plot or schedule to follow; you can choose how and where to go next at all times – exploring the prehistoric park at your own pace.

ARK Park allows HTC Vive, PSVR, and Oculus Rift users to interact with the majestic creatures last seen in the popular action-adventure survival game ARK: Survival Evolved – fulfilling the dream of meeting living, breathing dinosaurs “face-to-face” through a series of exquisite VR-powered theme-park attractions. While ARK: Survival Evolved focuses on hunting and taming dinosaurs, the new ARK Park VR experience will give players the opportunity to truly appreciate and understand dinosaurs in their natural habitat.

Set in the Jurassic era, ARK Park is an interactive experience that will fulfill anyone’s dreams of entering a world where living, breathing dinosaurs are still roaming the earth. Players will participate in a multiplayer tour, so they can share the visceral gameplay and the thrill of witnessing dinosaurs up-close and personal. ARK Park aims to be the most true to life realization of a virtual reality attraction, filled to the brim with fascinating Jurassic creatures. Everything showcased in ARK Park is designed to be as realistic as possible to enhance the educational benefits of the experience.

Two editions will be available at launch: standard and deluxe. The latter includes extra outfits – along with an exclusive dinosaur mount!

ARK Park takes the world of ARK: Survival Evolved into a wonderful and haunting new direction. It embraces virtual reality while offering players the tight gameplay mechanics from its predecessor. We’re thrilled to deliver Snail Games’ first VR title to our fans in March – and we couldn’t be more pleased with the team’s hard work throughout the development of ARK Park,” said Snail Games VP Tianqi Wu.

Powered by the Unreal Engine 4 and a blend of real-life imagery and 3D textures, ARK Park delivers an incredibly engaging, immersive experience that’s sure to shake up the VR entertainment market.

Key Features:

  • Explore a variety of maps without a linear storyline.
  • Collect eggs and incubate them to raise your own little dinosaurs.
  • Find materials such as Dinosaur DNA and trade them to craft useful items and more powerful weapons.
  • Defend the park and its vital technology from rampaging dinosaurs across 6 distinct levels!
  • Revisit the dinosaurs from the popular title ARK: Survival Evolved.

ARK Park will be available for HTC Vive, PSVR, and Oculus Rift on March 22, 2018. Voiceovers and subtitles will be in English, Japanese, Korean, and Chinese (Traditional and Simplified).
