Exctinction is coming! Wait, that’s a bad thing… unless you’re a player of ARK Survival Evolved, where Extinction is just the name of the game’s next expansion.
“Finish your journey through the worlds of ARK in ‘Extinction’, where the story began and ends: on Earth itself! An Element-infested, ravaged planet filled with fantastical creatures both organic and technological, Earth holds both the secrets of the past and the keys to its salvation. As a veteran Survivor who has conquered all previous obstacles, the ultimate challenge awaits: can you defeat the gigantic roaming Titans which dominate the planet and complete the ARK cycle to save Earth’s future?”
Intriguingly, Studio Wildcard has apparently begun calling the survival sandbox a “dinosaur action-adventure game.” Huh.
Launch on PC and console for the expansion is a pretty long ways off – November 6th – but the studio is promising new skins and themed drops between now and then. It’ll be free for players with the season pass or explorer’s pack, with an upgrade fee for everyone else.
