Description

    Prepare for the ultimate dinosaur-themed adventure - now you can take your tribe anywhere, at home or on the go!

    Stranded on a mysterious prehistoric island, you must explore its vast biomes as you begin to hunt, harvest, craft tools, grow crops and build shelters to survive. Use cunning and skill to kill, tame, breed, and even ride Dinosaurs and other primitive beasts living on "The ARK." Advance your technology from primitive stone tools to T-Rex-mounted laser cannons, as you group up with thousands of players online or enjoy a solo Jurassic experience.

    Enjoy the new Single Player Settings mode in ARK, which speeds up earning XP, crafting, taming dinos and more. The overall difficulty of the game is also altered for solo players, and with these new settings, setting out for a single-player adventure in the world of ARK is a smoother and more enjoyable experience for players who prefer to go it alone!

    Key Features

    Capture and Tame Dinosaurs: Discover over 100 different dinosaurs and prehistoric creatures on the island, finding ways to tame them into useful additions for your tribe's dino herd.

    Survive Above All: Hunger, thirst, basic safety and protecting yourself from the weather are all part of the game. Run too far and not only will you be exhausted, but you will also quickly get hungry and thirsty. Weather effects are based on real-world climates, and so you'll need to hide out from rain and snow, while making the most of sunny days.

    Harvest, Hunt and Build: Cut down trees and turn them into a basic home, which you can quickly expand into a Jurassic estate. Hunt for meat, scavenge for plants (or start your own garden!)

    Gather Resources, Customize Everything: An extensive crafting system invites you to mix and match materials scavenged from the island, while also modifying the colours, textures, shapes and style of everything from the walls of your home, to your character's armour, weapons and more.

    Explore the Island: Solve the mystery of The ARK as you explore this massive island, discovering Explorer's Notebooks (filled with clues!) throughout. Make your way to the final boss and figure out why you've been dropped into this Jurassic-era experience.

Reviews

Rated 1 out of 5 by from One of the WORST games on the Switch. ARK on the switch may be the worst port I have ever seen for a game apart from some java mobile titles in the early 2000's, the adaptive resolution falls below Sega Genesis titles of the late 80's (lower than 240p at times) and the performance is laughably terrible with framerates in the low twentie's and high teen's. Not to mention the flaws the game already has, an unplayable mess, AVOID!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Crazily Addictive and Fun The game runs pretty good and has a lot of things to do in the game from taming dinosaurs to summoning bosses. Love it!
