ARK Official Launch Trailer!

For those of you who missed us this morning on the Twitch at Gamescom livestream, we just premiered the official launch trailer for ARK: Survival Evolved! Watch it below!

The past two years have been one heck of a journey for all of us. Millions of ARK players worldwide have built gigantic bases, captured and trained armies of dinosaurs, crafted armories full of weapons and eaten billions of pounds of berries. With your help, we are days away from releasing the full ARK: Survival Evolved game to the world!
 
Come August 29th we'll be entering the next phase of our journey and exit early access. Players who have been with us throughout this early access program and were excited with the launch of each update have even more reason to be excited post-launch! ARK will continue to grow with new content at launch and beyond as we continue to have a behemoth amount of additional gameplay, creatures, and story elements in the works. The adventure has truly only just begun!

With every Explorer Note you've discovered on the Island a piece of the story has come along with it. Every artifact, every apex drops, every boss battle, it has all been leading up to this moment. Now it's time to understand the bigger picture and begin to discover why every Survivor wakes up on the beach with a diamond shaped implant in their arm.

Are you ready for what's in store? Will you be strong enough to take on the challenges ahead? Do you, your tribe, and your army have what it takes to reach Ascension? Only time will tell...

The launch trailer also features the first in-game footage for the two newest critters to the Island, the playful Otter and the fiery Phoenix.

This furry little Otter makes a cozy companion that can ride around on your shoulders and can help retrieve silica pearls for you!

The flaming Phoenix bursts into fire with the heat of the desert. Operating at impossible temperatures, this legendary flyer can cook resources just by holding them. Perhaps it could even be ridden, if somehow one could acquire gear fireproof enough to withstand the flames blazing across its feathers.

Lastly, we get our first look at the Tek Shield and Tek Sword in action! The sword is capable of a dash-charge attack and has armor piercing capability, while the shield can reflect incoming projectiles and bullets, and can completely stop splash damage!

Wow I can't wait to see the full release and what you guys have in store for us afterwards! It has been one crazy ride that is for sure lol

Also is that a secret Raptor redesign snuck into the poster image? Or is it just artist interpretation? Face looks more like a Jurassic Park raptor and I like it

Hey do you need to break youtube.com with the launch video. 10 000 views in 10 minutes. Youtube cuts away 50% of the views then 60% as the load becomes to high. The video played ok in 720p. then after a 10 minutes plays ok in 360p but less viewers per minute according to youtube.

And the views just continue to come in.

Big Big congratulations to the launch.

Regards,

Marcus and Ariana and now dubbed pro PvPer SARA.
