More On: Ark: Survival Evolved

If you’ve always been curious about the ARK Franchise but haven’t taken the dive, now might be the time. It’s a handful of a title, but ARK: Ultimate Survivor Edition is making its way to the Nintendo Switch on November 8.  “Experience everything the ARK franchise offers in this definitive collection! Tame and ride primeval creatures as you explore savage lands, team up with other players to compete in epic tribal battles, and travel together on the greatest Dinosaur-filled adventure of all time.” ARK: Ultimate Survivor Edition includes ARK: Survival Evolved, along with expansion packs: Scorched Earth, Aberration, Extinction, and Genesis Parts 1 & 2. Each expansion has been updated with every improvement since the original base game launched in 2015. This version includes original soundtracks containing the music of ARK composed by Gareth Coker.

“From primordial island jungles to the futuristic gardens of an interstellar starship, every sprawling environment is here for you to conquer! Discover the hundreds of unique species roaming these lands, from the prehistoric to the fantastical, and learn how to befriend these creatures, or to defeat them. Complete your collection of notes and dossiers left by past explorers to learn the surprising history of the ARKs. Test your tribe and your beasts in battle with every boss challenge from the franchise!”
