ARK: Survival Evolved Brings Dinosaurs back to survival games

Studio Wildcard unleashes the announcement trailer for their first game ARK: Survival Evolved, an open world dinosaur hunter

Zombies have become a dominating force in the game industry recently dragging survival horror games to the front. The market has been flooded by zombie titles but what the old school dinosaur survival titles? Series like Turok used to be unbelievably popular and yet now their is a complete lack of dinosaur titles out on the market. Surprisingly a brand new studio is breaking out onto the scene with an open world dinosaur survival title unlike anything you’ve seen before.

Studio Wildcard is a brand new developer so don’t be surprised if you’ve never heard of them or their game ARK: Survival Evolved. Releasing an announcement trailer for the game today, Studio Wildcard has blown all of us away with the quality and size of ARK. A Day Z open world styled game players will be able to work together to survive or throw each other under the bus. The game takes place in a place called ARK island populated by a plethora of ancient creatures.

ARK plants players on the island as either a man or woman naked with no supplies. If they want to survive they will have to work together to find resources or steal from one another. They’re free to explore the entire island looking for ways to build shelter and forge weapons to survive in a terrible hostile landscape. Players will start out learning to build bows and stone hatchets before moving up to increasingly powerful firearms. All so that they can take on the gigantic dinosaurs that dominate the island.

Shockingly though ARK will allow players to do much more than simply kill those big bad beasts for food. The announcement trailer shows off game mechanics where players can tame a number of different dinosaurs to use as riding mounts. Traversing the island on the back of a Stegosaurus, soaring through the skies on the back of pterodactyls,  and thundering along on the back of long necked dinosaurs.

Interacting with the environment is a key part of gameplay in ARK where players will be able to build massive bases and learn the secrets of the island. All of the exploration looks like it will be an amazing experience not simply because of the hulking dinosaurs but the graphics. Despite coming from a indie developer ARK is one of the most stunning games to appear on next gen consoles.

Studio Wildcard has put an immense amount of detail into the worlds environment creating a true sight to behold. Gamers who are itching to get a deeper look at the games online multiplayer, gorgeous graphics, massive open world won’t have to wait long. It will be hitting Steam Early Access on June 2nd.

After the recent port to PS5, Microsoft is “really pleased” with the overall sales and performance of Sea of Thieves. As a result, more people are playing the Xbox and PC versions as well. Matt Booty, president of game content and studios at Microsoft Gaming, said this:. He also said that the success of the series means it can grow and that more money should be spent on a Variety podcast interview.

Microsoft is bringing four games that used to only be available on Xbox to other systems. Sea of Thieves was the last of these games to come out. The others are Pentiment, Grounded, and Hi-Fi Rush. Even though things have been going well lately, Booty says that more ports will be dealt with “case-by-case.”

News spread before the port came out that Sea of Thieves was being used as a “key test” to see if more Xbox-only games would be ported to PS5, PS4, and Xbox One. In May 2024, the game was the best-selling PS Store game in both Europe and the US. It also did well in the weekly sales charts.

Aside from the four games that have already been ported to Xbox, nothing else has been officially confirmed. However, news reports say that a lot of exclusive games may be about to come to other platforms. Some say that PS5 games like Senua’s Saga: Hellblade II, Starfield, and a rumored remaster of Halo: Combat Evolved are all being thought about.

The upcoming game from the creators of the Danganronpa series has found a publisher in Sony subsidiary Aniplex. However, it’s worth noting that it won’t be initially released on the PS5. It is highly likely that The Hundred Line: Last Defense Academy will be released on Sony’s system at a later date, just like Master Detective Archives: Rain Code in October. However, the development team is currently focusing on prioritizing the release of their latest title on the Nintendo Switch and PC.

Described as a strategy game, the title allows players to step into the shoes of teenager Takumi Sumino, who resides in the perpetually secure Tokyo Residential Complex. When monsters suddenly unleash chaos upon the town, Takumi finds himself thrust into the Last Defense Academy. His mission? To protect the school alongside 14 other students for a grueling 100 days.

As one would anticipate, alongside the strategic gameplay, it is crucial to foster strong relationships with your comrades. Moreover, the outcome of the game can vary greatly, with a staggering 100 possible endings contingent upon the choices you make. We will reach out to Aniplex to inquire about the possibility of a PS5 port. However, it is important to note that Aniplex operates independently from PlayStation, as it falls under the Sony Music umbrella.

Most new games these days have some kind of photography feature, so it’s hard to remember a time before Photo Modes. Some developers don’t think it’s important for players to be able to take pictures right away, so the feature is added later. One great example of this is Alan Wake 2, which now has Photo Mode thanks to a new update that is now available.

If you look at the trailer above, you can see that you can really get creative with your photos by adding cool borders, overlays, and filters. We always like photo modes, where you can move different lights around in the scene. As the video shows, Remedy really lets you use your imagination with the different colors and lighting props.
