    ARK: Animated Series

    ARKTV_PosterLogo.pngStudio Wildcard has partnered with acclaimed director Jay Oliva (Batman: The Dark Knight Returns, Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox) to executive produce and co-showrun an original animated television series based on the hit video game ARK: Survival Evolved.

    Marguerite Bennett (Batwoman, DC’s Bombshells, Batman, Supergirl, Batgirl, Josie and the Pussycats) and Kendall Deacon Davis (Halo 4, The Wolf Among Us, Honor of Kings) are the lead writers for ARK: The Animated Series, which features an extraordinary voice cast!

    From cutting-edge animation studio Lex + Otis and with music composed by Gareth Coker (Ori and the Will of the Wisps), ARK: The Animated Series chronicles the story of a mysterious primeval land populated by dinosaurs and other extinct creatures, where people from throughout human history have been resurrected. When 21st century Australian paleontologist Helena Walker awakes on the ARK after tragedy, she must learn to survive and find new allies, or die again at the hands of ruthless warlords -- all while trying to uncover the true nature of their strange new world.

    ARK fans will recognise many aspects of the lore and witness new depth and development to familiar characters. We can’t wait to share more as we near the airing!

    What I really want to know is if they are going to import their project to UE5 to utilize Lumen and Nanite technologies?

    Just found out three character designs on Ark official wikia page - hope to see more

    Helena is well-known from the teaser, quite similar to the game Ark Animated Helena design

    There's also Nerva (who looks quite bad@ss) Ark Animated Nerva design 

    But Rockwell's design... he looks much younger and a lot like any Disney cartoon's sterereoptical villain - you can see he's up to no good from the beginning... I could suggest a change for him  Ark Animated Rockwell design

    (And where's his beard?)

    I'll be extremely upset if the overseer boss fight doesnt appear in the animated series. If it does i hope its music is played.

    I would probably remove the "hyper-realistic dinosaurs" part. Your dinosaurs are not even close to that going by the ark 2 trailer video.

    It looks like you are using a very outdated source for "accurate t-rex" did someone just google accurate t-rex and went with the horribly reconstructed bbc one with the yellow crest?

    other things to note

    • Reconstruction done by r.j.palmer is the most realistic rex to date
    • A lifesize replica of Sue was released and on tour this year with all current known data of Tyrannosaurus rex.
    • As far as I recall Tyrannosaurus did not have quill knobs on its ulna, and therefore did not have any discerning proof of feathering on its arms.
    • The arms are still JP style, and are not pronated to the realistic position.
    • There is plenty of evidence, and photographic proof of Tyrannosaurus scales being no wider than 5mm.
    • Tyrannosaurus did not have crocodile scutes along its back, crocodiles scutes follow a specific direction and do not face random directions.
    • Why does the trex head have an albertosaurus face instead of t-rex? Those fleshy peaks on the eyebrows is way too much like albertosaurus than tyrannosaurus
    • The head is too thin and eyes are not forward facing enough.
    • I don't know why Tyrannosaurus has protofeathers on its back similar to a psittacosaurus, but this too has not been located in any Tyrannosaurus rex specimen as of date. The closest to reveal any feather filaments was Yutyrannus, and this is still under heavy debate.
    • Your Tyrannosaurus is too annorexic. Latest bone reconstructions makes it much beefier.

    I want to see you make me that, bruh this game doesn't follow a lot of logical rules anyway lol. How about you make a game about evolving and survival. Make your dinosaurs perfect models. When you do tell me cuz i wanna play that. But nice job on your desc. 

     P.S. a lot of pvpers wouldn't even know what the most real model is
