It’s launch day for ARK Survival Evolved… on the Switch, that is. Do note that it includes the original base game and hasn’t been stripped for the console, but not all of the addon content worked in on PC over the last few years.
“ARK on Switch includes the entire ARK Island, with 100+ prehistoric- and fantasy-inspired creatures such as the T-Rex, Giganotosaurus, Direwolf and Yeti. Stranded on a mysterious prehistoric island, you must explore its vast biomes as you begin to hunt, harvest, craft tools, grow crops and build shelters to survive. Use cunning and skill to kill, tame, breed, and even ride Dinosaurs and other primitive beasts living on The ARK. Advance your technology from primitive stone tools to T-Rex-mounted laser cannons, as you team up with hundreds of players online or enjoy a solo Jurassic experience.”
It’s still not clear whether we’ll ever see crossplatform play with the Switch, but we rather doubt it; the game is already on PC and Mac, of course, as well as PS4 and Xbox One. As we noted earlier this month, you can expect to pay $49.99 retail for the fun of playing dinos on your couch.
