The hype train for ARK: Survival Evolved’s Genesis Part 2 expansion is beginning to spool up its engine. At the start of a 24-hour charity livestream, a new teaser trailer was unveiled that offered a look at some dramatic new biomes, alarming new creatures (check out the gigantic laser goat things), and hints at the overall story for the expansion as voiced by Doctor Who’s David Tennant and Wheel of Time’s Madeleine Madden as Sir Edmund Rockwell and HLN-A respectively.
“The final confrontation between these two antagonists takes place on a gigantic colony ship traveling through deep space, and players will need to make use of all their ARK skills to succeed. Whether it’s taking possession of enemies via brain-controlling ‘Noglin’ creatures, zooming around doing radical tricks on the skateboard-like Hoversail, or managing & viewing bases remotely with security cameras – among tons of other new items and creatures – ARK’s largest Expansion Pack yet has game-changing additions for every kind of Survivor. But even with HLN-A’s help, will they be able to put a stop to Rockwell’s demented plans once and for all? We’re about to find out, because The End is Near!”
In the meantime, ARK is going to provide another TLC pass with focus on wooly mammoths, stegosaurs, and a number of new breedable creatures among other quality-of-life changes. The link above provides some of those patch notes, while the official site has summarized the latest reveals during the Extra Life livestream. And, of course, there are trailers after the cut.
