ARK: Survival Evolved recruited one million players on PlayStation 4


Is there any stopping the juggernaut that is ARK: Survival Evolved? Not right not on console, at least. The dino sandbox topped PlayStation 4 Network sales in both December and January, netting over a million players (and sales) to date. The game came out on PS4 back on December 6th. To celebrate the milestone (or simply make some more bucks), ARK is selling the PS4 Survivor’s Pack at 20% off. This pack comes with the game, all content to date, and the expansion.

It’s a good time to be a console player, too, as that ARK community gets to enjoy a brand-new update with four additional animals, the TEK tier of armor, and lots of luscious hairstyles. Oh, and did we mention the dinosaur-mounted laser cannons? Because a T-Rex isn’t dangerous enough on its own, apparently.

Check out the patch highlights in the video alone, and definitely don’t miss a certain Dirty Dancing tribute at 1:10!

Wow, so much salt already.


Don’t you mean “1 million BETA TESTERS”? Because, you know, they’re a Beta product with a P2P expansion that is also a Beta product. That is now a thing.


I just discovered that ARK has couch-coop on the PS4. I’m always looking for games to play with my kid on the PS4, and good couch co-op games are a rarity. What do folks think: is the game any fun on PvE servers for couch co-op?

At a pre-release “discount” of $60 a pop! Because why bother finishing the game on the first platform you launched it on, unfinished, when you could just continue porting to other platforms and selling the unfinished game for a full AAA price there?!

Congratulations ARK team! Don’t let the haters bother you. Just keep making the game you want to make, and the game you want to play.
