'Ark: Survival Evolved' Reveals Extinction Expansion Date, Gameplay Details - Screens & Trailer

Ark: Survival Evolved is an open-world dinosaur survival game where players fight for every breath amongst the most ferocious creatures to ever walk the earth.

Powered by Unreal Engine 4, Ark: Survival Evolved takes on the survival genre with a unique blend of emergent multiplayer cooperation and competition.

In ARK: Survival Evolved, survivors wake up stranded, naked, freezing, and starving on a mysterious island where they must hunt, harvest, craft items, grow crops, and build shelters to survive in every biome. Survivors will tame, train, and ride more than 100 stunning dinosaurs and other prehistoric beasts, including gargantuan creatures on a scale never before seen in video games! In every available biome -- Jungle, Snow, Swamp, Redwood, and Desert -- you’ll be able to fly an armed Pteranodon squadron over the snow-capped mountains, race through a thick jungle with your pack of trained Raptors, tromp through a fortified enemy base with a convoy of gigantic Brontosaurus, or chase down prey on the back of a raging T-Rex.

Use cunning strategy and tactics to tame and ride the many dinosaurs and other primeval creatures roaming the dynamic, persistent ecosystems across land, sea, air, and even underground. Build your character’s strengths and gain items, skills, and pet creatures using in-depth role-playing systems. Start a tribe with hundreds of other players to survive and dominate competing tribes...and ultimately discover the ARK’s true purpose.


Finish your journey through the worlds of ARK in ‘Extinction’, where the story began and ends: on Earth itself! An Element-infested, ravaged planet filled with fantastical creatures both organic and technological, Earth holds both the secrets of the past and the keys to its salvation. As a veteran Survivor who has conquered all previous obstacles, the ultimate challenge awaits: can you defeat the gigantic roaming Titans which dominate the planet and complete the ARK cycle to save Earth's future?

In the months leading up to Extinction, there will be regular drops of Extinction-related Explorer Notes within ARK and its already released expansion packs, which once collected will unlock new skins, as well as the appearance of powerful Tek-themed Dinosaur variants within the ARKs. Studio Wildcard released the first set of these Explorer Notes last Friday, along with the first Extinction related skin ‘Corrupted Helm’.

ARK: Extinction will release worldwide November 6, 2018, for PS4, Xbox One and Steam, joining the desert-themed Scorched Earth and the underground, derelict biome Aberration, in continuing to unravel the mysteries of ARK!

ARK Survivors who own the Explorer’s Pack or Season Pass will automatically receive Extinction for no additional cost, it will also be available as a standalone expansion pack and upgrade.
