We’re thrilled to share something special with our ARK Switch community! We’ve partnered up with a talented third-party developer to completely rewrite the ARK Switch code from the ground up with the latest version of Unreal Engine 4, to be released in September 2022! This new Switch experience will include enhancements and upgrades to bring it into line, visually and functionally, with the experience on Xbox One and PS4. We love how it’s shaping up, and feel confident you all will too!
Prepare yourselves for a completely overhauled and updated ARK experience for Switch, with all of the features, visuals, and functionality of the other platforms! And, don’t worry, you will retain your progress and save data, it’s a win-win!
And that’s not all! The epic adventure continues with the upcoming launch of ARK: Ultimate Survivor Edition on Switch in September 2022! It will be priced at $49.99 and packed with hundreds of hours of content, including the relaunch of ARK: Survival Evolved and Scorched Earth with the additional massive expansion packs to follow in the months ahead!
ARK: Ultimate Survivor Edition will include:
- ARK: Survival Evolved - revamped and updated to the latest version of Unreal Engine 4 with the features, visuals, and functionality of the other platforms, while maintaining existing save data and progression.
- Scorched Earth Expansion Pack (launching September 2022)
- Additional Expansion Packs added at 2-month intervals: Aberration, Extinction, and Genesis Parts 1 & 2
- New cinematic story content to further expand the narrative of ARK: Survival Evolved.
- Young Explorers Mode: Take a journey through the epochs in this new educational game mode that invites families and kids to learn about the fascinating prehistoric creatures that inspired the game. Young Explorers Mode is appropriate for even the smallest of survivors!
- Custom server support powered by Nitrado server networks.
All the improvements coming to the base ARK: Survival Evolved game will, of course, be FREE for everyone who already owns ARK: Survival Evolved on Nintendo Switch. Players who own the base game can also opt to purchase the Expansion Packs if they wish.
Join us on this journey as we expand the story content and ARK universe in September 2022 and finally deliver the definitive ARK experience on Nintendo Switch!
