About ARK Survival Evolved
Studio Wildcard developed an action-adventure survival video game where players have to stay alive on different maps filled with giant beasts, fantasy monsters, and other prehistoric creatures, as well as natural disasters and potentially hostile human opponents.
The game can be played from either a 3rd or 1st-person point of view, and its open world is explored on foot or by riding a primitive animal. Players are capable of using firearms and homemade weapons to fight against aggressive humans and creatures, as well as having the option to create bases as a defense on the ground and certain animals. The game has both single-player and multiplayer features.
Multiplayer allows players to make their tribes in a server – the greatest number of tribe members changes depending on which server you are playing. In this mode, all tamed dinosaurs and building structures generally belong to all members. There is also a PvE mode where people cannot battle one another unless predetermined war events that both parties agreed upon have occurred.
At present, 176 creatures inhabit the world of Ark. When the game was initially released, a lot of these were based on real dinosaurs and pre-historic animals, but as
One of the key gameplay mechanics in the game is to tame creatures. The player can tame most creatures, but some, for example, Meganeura or Titanomyrma, are not. The process to tame them all differs. With many creatures you must use violent taming, meaning that the player needs to knock them out with a tranquilizer like a tranq dart or with blunt weapons such as a club.
Usually, they have to keep it sedated while it is being tamed. Certain dinosaurs will take longer than others to be tamed and thus require more anesthetics. People can use narco berries or create vaccines combining narco berries and spoiled meat. When knocked out, they must give the creature what it likes; plants as food for herbivores or raw meat for carnivores.
Different ingredients can be used for taming different animals at various rates of speed. Almost all beasts are most effectively – and quickly – tamed using Kibble, which has been crafted from eggs belonging to another reptile.
Initially released for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Microsoft Windows, OS X, and Linux, the game was made available on Android, iOS, and Nintendo Switch, followed by a version for Stadia in 2021 and a second Nintendo Switch version in 2022. More About ARK Survival Evolved.
