  • ARK Survival Evolved for Mobile!

    We’re very excited to announce that the world of ARK: Survival Evolved is coming to mobile! Thanks to the efforts of veteran mobile developer War Drum Studios (the team behind the mobile versions of Bully, Grand Theft Auto, and Auralux), gamers will be able to join the massively multiplayer survival experience that is ARK right from their mobile devices!

    All gameplay footage for this trailer was recorded live using an iPhone 8.

    Designed and developed by War Drum Studios, ARK: Survival Evolved mobile is free-to-play and puts the dino-taming adventure in the palm of your hand, letting you join forces with tens of thousands of other mobile survivors. This on-the-go version of ARK features the online survival experience contained in the PC and console versions of ARK, including a gigantic island to explore, 80+ dinosaurs and primeval creatures to tame and train, multiplayer tribe mechanics, and of course, crafting and building! 

    Mobile features include:

    • Taming: Use cunning strategy and tactics to befriend, ride and breed the many dinosaurs and other primeval creatures roaming the dynamic, persistent ecosystems across land, sea, air, and even underground. 
    • Discover: Unearth rare blueprints and Explorer Notes written by previous human denizens of the ARK from across the millennia, detailing the mysterious Island’s creatures and backstory. 
    • Craft and build: Using any means necessary - survive, craft weapons, clothes, and items, and build shelters, villages, or even large cities. 
    • Plant, harvest, build, level-up, and customize everything visually and functionally, including procedurally-generated RPG statistics for creatures, characters, resources, clothing, gear, and weapons, both primitive and modern.
    • Play alone or team up to survive: Team up with, or prey on, up to 50 other players in a large-scale multiplayer online first-person environment, or choose single player mode to test your mettle against the world solo.
    • Join a tribe: The 'Tribe' system encourages cooperation, by supporting dynamic parties to share resources, experience points, and re-spawn points.

    While maintaining the true ARK experience players have come to know and love, this mobilized version of the game has been completely adapted for handheld touch devices allowing for the ultimate survival experience on a mobile device. This includes faster paced gameplay, a unique user interface and a specialised control setup developed specifically for the mobile game. 

    The mobile version also offers optional upgrades survivors can acquire using special in-game resources that will allow players to progress faster, obtain certain buffs for periods of time, build special crafting structures, and even bring your beloved tames back from the dead!

    You can pre-register now to stay in-the-know with the mobile version of ARK: Survival Evolved. Keep informed about the beta, release date, special offers and more! There may even be some day 1 in-game bonuses thrown in to the mix for those Survivors that Pre-Register!

    I will legit buy it, if this is no joke.. But my iPhone 7 will legit put out max 5FPS and I won't give a ****. I will now have chance at understanding how the console plebian primates (no I don't intend to hate on console players, this was purely a joke, don't get triggered pls.) live in ARK: Survival Evolved. All hate aside, let's become Alpha tribe on Official Servers on iPhone too!

    You know that "oh poop, they shouldn't have done this" face whenever someone does something they shouldn't have because they still have a lot of other things to fix first?
    I'm pretty sure all the people still defending Wildcard are making that face riiiight about now. Even if it's developed by War Drum Studios which I understand isn't taking away time from Wildcard fixing ARK but I'm sure somewhere, somehow it still is. At least it's resources going to a place where no one really expected ARK to ever go?

    I will legit throw dollar bills down the throats of Wildcard devs if this is happening. I already supported stupid projects like TSL so why not support something that will maybe push out 5FPS on iPhone if I'm lucky? ;)

    This is Snail Games guys... the Chinese company known for freemium mobile games that owns Studio Wildcard.  This micro transaction version has been in the works since they bought WC.  Sad thing is it will probably run a lot better than the PC or console versions.

    Shouldn't this be under the "Ark Mobile New" section not "Ark News"? Doesn't matter to me just seems silly to have the mobile section and place mobile... whatever forget it. This sounds cool. I'm excited.

    yeah, that's me... i'm making that face while looking at my Oculus Rift and seeing that Ark still doesn't have proper VR support they promised years ago.

    Free..

    Well long as it has offline play (you mentioned single player mode) i'm in, I been wanting to get this game for a while so to have it on my iPad Pro would be fantastic! 

    in apps ... why is this free ? what is different? the game is 60$ on pc so something must of been changed to allow this free on mobile.. timers?  

    would of taken premium & paid for it..

     

    excited for this atm as long as it's offline i'm content.

    I'm quite excited by this.  Looks like my phone isn't officially supported, but by the time this comes out it will be time for an upgrade anyways.  I have a terrible time with playing with phone controls, so its good to see the final version will have Bluetooth controller support.

    I can't imagine how the controls will work in realtime on such a device.  Hopefully I am selected.
