ARK: Survival Evolved is coming to Switch
Studio Wildcard had already thrown their support behind Switch with the announcement of PixARK, the pixel styled game, but some people were asking why is Switch not getting the main game as well. During an Epic Games panel at GDC, it was announced that ARK: Survival Evolved is coming to Switch in Spring of 2018.
“The Switch’s handheld mode provides a fantastic new capability for survivors who want to fully immerse themselves in the vast worlds of ARK,” said Jeremy Stieglitz, Studio Wildcard’s Lead Designer, Lead Programmer, Development Director, and Co-Creative Director. “With this new version, Switch players can go directly from hunting and taming while sitting on the couch, to forming online tribes and searching out new conquests when on the bus, waiting in line, or wherever they happen to be.”
ARK: Survival Evolved on Switch is set to include all of the complete content and features of the original game; from the massive and mysterious ARK island, to the more than 100 prehistoric- and fantasy-inspired creatures such as the T-Rex, Giganotosaurus, Rock Drake and Reaper. Hundreds of hours of exploring, crafting, survival and combat await players as they go it alone, or group up with thousands of other Survivors to explore the island and solve the mysteries of the ARK.
