Remember ARK Park, the ARK: Survival Evolved dinosaur “VR experience” that Snail Games and Studio Wildcard are working on? Snail announced today that it’s launching on three platforms — the Oculus Rift, PlayStation VR, and HTC Vive — next year. The studio’s also sorted out the who’s-who, deeming Studio Wildcard “creative consultants” on the VR; Snail’s Peacock Studio will be “directing the project.”
“ARK stalwarts will have their skill and cunning in taming primeval creatures rewarded in this new game, as they can import their own collected dinosaurs from the original survival game into a up-close and personal, full VR experience. Players begin their ARK Park adventure at a visitor center surrounded by life-sized holographic dinosaurs where they’ll learn about these creatures that they’ve only read about and seen in books and summer blockbusters. From there, players will have the option to explore multiple interactive attractions on-foot, in vehicles, or on Dino-back, including a swamp, forest, desert, snowy mountain range and more. Each attraction features stunningly rendered and realistic environments of the period inhabited by ARK creatures, which can be found and captured through use of items, weapons, and puzzle-solving.”
