ARK: Survival Evolved is coming to mobile devices

Recommended Posts

We are very excited to announce that we are bringing the world of ARK: Survival Evolved to iOS and Android devices. This free-to-play mobile version features the full 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!

In the coming days we are launching a limited closed beta on iOS, with a full worldwide launch expected later this Spring on the iOS App Store and Google Play Store. Interested ARK survivors should stay tuned to this News section for updates on the game’s development and visit this link to sign-up for the ARK closed beta.


  • Taming: Use cunning strategy and tactics to befriend, train, 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, XP, and respawn points.

While maintaining the true ARK experience as closely as possible the mobile version has undergone its own mutations which allow for the ultimate experience on a mobile device. This includes faster paced gameplay, a unique user interface and a specialized control setup developed specifically for the mobile game. 

The mobile version also offers optional upgrades survivors can aquire using Amber 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!

See you on the island,

What was left of my "real" life is now gone. Soon, this will be all I do.

There is no real life, only Ark.
