Community Crunch 342: The Survival of the Fittest and More!
Survival of the Fittest is making a triumphant return!
Initially launched in 2016 as an intro into the competitive gaming space, Survival of the Fittest pits combatants in an action-packed struggle for survival where players assemble their Dino armies towards an epic final showdown in which one tribe makes it out alive. SotF, even in its infancy stage, received tremendous support from the community with several valiant attempts by the modding community to revive the game mode. We are excited to reintroduce The Survival of the Fittest - a Multiplayer Online Survival Arena in the ARK universe!
While the core goal of SotF remains the same, we’ve gone back to the drawing board to streamline the gameplay mechanics and provide a fast-paced, engaging, and compelling experience. The Survival of the Fittest will make its PC (Steam) debut on December 23rd, with news on the cross-play console releases early in the upcoming year.
As always, we’re looking forward to seeing your community-created content, collecting your feedback, and participating in the action as well! With fast-paced gameplay and intense combat focused on large-scale creature battles, The Survival of the Fittest is the ultimate test of skill and strategy! We’ll see you out there on its primal battlefield!
