ARK Survival Evolved coming to Xbox One Game Preview on the 16th of December

Studio Wildcard Co-Founder Jesse Rapczak has today confirmed that ARK Survival Evolved will be heading to Xbox One’s Game Preview Program from December 16th, the game won’t come cheap however and will be priced at $34.99. 

Speaking to IGN, Jesse announced that those who purchase the preview mode will not have to pay for the full release and that the development team don’t intend to update the Xbox One version as often as the PC.

“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, 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.”


Ark: Survival Evolved is an action-adventure survival game that uses a first-person perspective, with the ability to use a third-person perspective in some instances. To survive, players must establish a base, with a fire and weapons; additional activities, such as taming and feeding dinosaurs, requires more resources.
