NEW STORY-ORIENTED MISSIONS
- A holographic guide, HLN-A, offers a wide array of engaging new story-oriented missions at varying difficulty levels, as you build strength to confront Rockwell in a final battle for the ages. Completing missions earns you new map-wide bonuses and Hexagons, which you can spend for extra resources, additional Engram Points, TEK items, travel between environments, and more. Discover Explorer Notes and environmental cues along the way to learn even more about the history of the ARK saga.
EXPANSIVE WORLDS TO CONQUER
- In ARK: Genesis 2, you’ll emerge from the simulation into a gargantuan starship filled with unique biomes, including beautiful elysian fields, an exotic twilight realm of highly evolved lifeforms, the depths of outer-space, and even the innards of the ever-expanding Rockwell himself. Whether it’s sentient alien plants, Rockwell’s digestive fluids, or asteroids warping in from intergalactic space travel, each biome presents unique hazards, but also opportunities to acquire new resources and creatures — including the powerful new ‘Mutagen’ that enables you to further evolve your existing tames!
- Throughout the vast expanses of Genesis Part 2’s world, you’ll find the brain-controlling Noglins, elegant high-tech Stryders, the cuddly mobile-nursery Maewing, and even the laser-shooting, bomb-blasting, barrel-rolling Astrodelphis starfighter — among other fantastical new creatures and evolved R-Variants of old favorites! You’ll need all the help you can tame, as both Genesis expansions present you with challenging new bosses and minibosses that will take all of your skills to conquer.
- As you brave the many dangers of this new world, you’ll gain access to powerful new tools to aid you. You’ll learn how to place remote cameras, pull off tricks with a floating skateboard-like Hoversail, take care of your eggs with the high-tech Incubator, shoot arrows made of pure energy with the Tek Bow, even engage in a Real-Time Strategy command mode within the new Exo-Mek — and far, far more!
Ark: Survival Evolved was developed by Studio Wildcard. As stated above there is a sequel currently in the works simply called Ark II, which will star Vin Diesel. Fans of the game also have an animated series to look forward to at some point in the near future.
