Studio Wildcard has announced the early access Xbox One version of ARK: Survival Evolved will launch on Wednesday, December 16. The game will be available on the Xbox Game Preview Program for $34.99. Future releases are planned for PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4 in June 2016.
“Our goal is to bring all this chaotic and creative spontaneous fun – the tribe building, dino-breeding, dino-combat, the weapons-, armor-, food-, and recipe-crafting, and more – to Xbox One fans with no compromises,” he told us when we asked if we should expect any differences from the PC version.
“Through all of this, we hope to help Microsoft build out Xbox Game Preview while giving Xbox One gamers something totally new and different than the standard updated version of old franchises. Gamers want new experiences on their consoles, and we feel that ARK, which is one of the few dinosaur games on the market, and one of the only, if not the only true multiplayer survival games on console, will bring that fresh gaming experience that helps define this generation.”
