In ARK: Survival Evolved you will wake up alone on an island full of dinosaurs and predators. If you want to survive, you will have to be patient and clever. Observe, build your shelter, and craft weapons to protect yourself. Cooperate with other players and form tribes to fight together and thrive. ARK: Survival Evolved is a survival action-adventure video game published by Studio Wildcard.


  • Beware of predators: Over 80 different species coexist on the island. Be careful because even if some of them look cute, they won't hesitate to try to cut you into pieces. Be patient, take advantage of your environment, and you may succeed in training some of these wild beasts to help you in your journey.
  • Explore, craft, survive: You will start from scratch, with nothing to help you. To survive, you will have to explore the island, collect resources and objects, build a shelter to take some rest, craft weapons to stay alive, and wear clothes to keep your body warm during the cold nights.
  • Expand: If you cooperate with other players, you will be able to form a small civilization with villages or large cities. Take care to build your structures with the proper materials, and pay attention to the foundations to make your buildings last.
  • Mythical creatures: Defi and defeat some of the most dangerous creatures on the island. Some will appear after performing a ritual or will be found at a specific location, or after making a sacrifice. If you manage to snatch the victory, you may get proper rewards.
  • Tribes: You can form or join an existing tribe composed of friends or other players. Teaming up is very fun and can be a game-changer as you will share the pets you tamed, the respawn points, as well as the codes needed to access the base.
