The Sony leaks earlier today have now been proven true: ARK Survival Evolved is getting new DLC called Genesis, bundled up in a season pass. The DLC will roll out in two parts, the first in December and the second later this winter in 2020. On Steam, the pass looks to be $34.99 US.
“Continue your quest for survival and unlock a whole new chapter in the saga of ARK: Survival Evolved with the ARK: Genesis Season Pass! This Season Pass gives you access to two new huge expansion packs and one exclusive in-game cosmetic pet. Further the ARK storyline while adventuring through unique and diverse biomes via an all new mission-based game mechanic. Discover, utilize and master new creatures, new craftable items and new craftable structures unlike anything you have seen yet!”
Studio Wildcard confirmed the new DLC in its livestream this afternoon (along with the new trailer too!). The video is shown twice early on, but the Genesis discussion starts around 13:00 minutes in.
