ARK: Survival of the Fittest Coming to PS4
What would happen if you combined The Hunger Games with Jurassic Park? That’s the idea behind Survival of the Fittest, a standalone game based on ARK: Survival Evolved. The so-called “Multiplayer Online Survival Arena” title launched on PC last month, and now it’s headed towards the PlayStation 4. Starting on July 19th, console players will be able to fight for supremacy using the resources on an ever-shrinking arena. The aim is to quickly collect materials, craft better gear and, if you’re lucky, tame some dinosaurs to ravage your opponents.
The PlayStation 4 release will come with some new additions. Kayd Hendricks, a gameplay designer at Studio Wildcard, says the team is working on splitscreen multiplayer, local LAN play and a practice mode that lets you compete with bots offline. It’ll also support Survivor League, an eSports-style ranking system that doles our cash prizes to the best players every month. If you’re the competitive type that’s burned out on traditional shooters and MOBAs, this could be a refreshing turn of pace.
Check out the Trailer:
“The Survivor League is Studio Wildcard’s eSports spin on Survival of the Fittest. It provides a dedicated eSport ranking, matchmaking, and rewards for ARK: Survival of the Fittest. The top-10 ranked players in each of the four game modes receive cash prizes of over $50,000. Winners also qualify for invitationals and other future events being planned by the studio to promote the game.”
