ABOUT THIS GAME
Stranded naked on the shore of a mysterious island called ARK, freezing and starving, you´ll have to hunt, gather resources, craft items, grow crops, research technology, and build shelters to withstand the weather. Use your cunning and resources to kill or tame and breed the huge dinosaurs and other primitive creatures that inhabit the island, and team up with hundreds of other players or hunt them to survive, dominate... and overcome difficulties!
The following features have been in the game since day one of Early Access launch. We have a lot more features and improvements planned for the long-term development of the game, but here´s what´s available to you right now in ARK:
TAMPER, TRAIN, BREED AND RIDE DINOSAURS IN A LIVING ECOSYSTEM
Dinosaurs, other creatures and their breeding! - Over 50 creatures in early access and 100+ by final release - can be tamed with a sophisticated capture and tether system, including weakening an untamed beast to full stun and then grooming it with appropriate food. After taming, you will be able to give commands to your pet, the execution of which will depend on how well you have tamed and trained him. Pets that level up will require food, can carry items and gear like armor, can carry loot back to your settlement based on their strength, and larger animals can be ridden and directly controlled! Fly your pterodactyl over snow-capped mountains, throw allies over enemy walls, race through the jungle with your pack of raptors, break into an enemy base on a giant brontosaurus, or stalk your prey on the back of a furious T-Rex! Be part of the life cycle of a dynamic ecosystem with your own food chain, where you are just one link among many species of creatures fighting for dominance and survival. Pets can also be bred by mating with the opposite sex, through sequential selection through a system of traits based on recombinant genetic inheritance. This process includes both the incubation of eggs and the development of pregnancy in mammals! Or, to put it simply, breed and raise baby dinosaurs and other creatures!
FOOD, WATER, TEMPERATURE AND WEATHER
You must eat and drink to survive, using different types of plants and meat, including human meat, with different nutritional properties. An urgent problem is also the provision of fresh water to your home and its supply in inventory. All physical actions consume food and water parameters, so long-distance travel is fraught with a threat to survival! The load of inventory makes you move slower, and the cycle of day and night, together with capricious weather conditions, pose another challenge by fluctuating ambient temperatures, as a result of which your hunger or thirst intensifies. Build a fire or shelter, craft a variety of customizable clothing and armor to protect yourself from physical damage and extreme temperatures using a dynamic heat and cold resistance calculation system, both indoors and outdoors!
COLLECTING RESOURCES, CONSTRUCTING BUILDINGS AND PAINTING ITEMS
By cutting down a forest teeming with trees and extracting metal and other valuable resources, you can craft various elements to build massive multi-level buildings consisting of complex interconnected parts, including ramps, bridges, columns, windows, doors, hatches, remote-controlled gates, water pipes and faucets, generators, wires and all kinds of electrical devices...
