Survival games have made a bit of a renaissance recently on both PC and consoles and while the majority feature post-apocalyptic zombie scenarios, several are attempting to provide a true survival experience in more unique surroundings. ARK: Survival Evolved (unrelated to Fantasia: Music Evolved) is one such game and instead of zombies has opted for dinosaurs and who doesn’t love dinosaurs?
The first-person survival game drops players into a world inhabited by dinosaurs, prehistoric creatures like dodos, hundreds of other online players, and even dragons. Players can build their own bases, ride dinosaurs, hunt dinosaurs… it’s kind of a mix of Monster Hunter and Dinotopia and while the graphics aren’t necessarily mind blowing, it does look like a lot of fun.
The first official trailer just dropped and shows in-game footage of several game features and creature species. Check it out here and let us know what you think in the comments below. ARK: Survival Evolved launches in June on Steam and on Xbox One at an unspecified time later in the year.Further reading: Microsoft, Video Games, Xbox One
