ARK: Survival Evolved is an action-adventure survival game scheduled to be released for Xbox One, PlayStation, OS X, Linux and Windows PC in Q4 2016. The game was developed by a consortium of companies: Instinct Games, Effecto Studios, Virtual Basement and Studio Wildcard.
The game’s early access period began for Windows PC on June 2, 2015, for Linux and OS X on July 1, 2015 and for Xbox One on December 16, 2015. In this game, players need to survive as they are stranded on an island filled with natural hazards, potentially hostile human players, and dinosaurs.
You can play the game in either first person or third person view and navigate around the map on foot or by riding a dinosaur. You will use improvised weapons and firearms to defend yourself against hostile humans and creatures, but you can also build bases which can be used for defensive measures in both single-player and multiplayer modes.
ARK: Survival Evolved is now receiving a new update which adds support for The Center, a huge map free to all players. Studio Wildcard claimed that the new map doubles the in-game playable geography of the already enormous landscape, making it around 70 square kilometers.
The Center is filled with lava rivers, giant picturesque mountains, ancient underground ruins, big ice caves, and more mysteries, all highlighted by some awesome lighting effects. The developer added that the map is so big that the caves come with their own unique ecosystems.
The game is now in the midst of its early-access period and the gamers who want to play it will need to pay for it. Until 24 May, 2016, there is a 33% discount on Steam for this game: making it only 18,75€.
Here is the trailer of the new map that has been added to this game:
