Pipinghot Posted March 31 Share Posted March 31 (edited) Well it's time for all of the laughing or crying, depending on your point of view. After seeing WildCard talking and talking about how the conversion of ARK to Unreal 5 will be free now... it won't. Yup, you get to pay for the same game, again, to play it in Unreal 5 (and who wants to guess how long the current version will exists on Official servers). And yes, they say that this new purchase will give you access to both ARK-Unreal5 and ARK2, but if you believe that I have some swampland in Louisiana to sell you. You're going to pay $50 for ARK (again), $20 for Explorer's Pass (again), $20 for Genesis pass (again)... and then somehow you're still going to end up paying for ARK2, I guarantee it. From today's Community Crunch ARK: Survival Ascended is a next-generation remaster of our beloved ARK: Survival Evolved, harnessing the power of Unreal Engine 5. It will be released on Xbox Series S/X, PC (Windows/Steam), and PlayStation 5 by the end of August 2023. The base game will include The Island, SOTF, and all the “Non-Canon” DLC maps (which will be added to ASA over time). Xbox Series S/X and PC players will only be able to get it via an ultimate-value bundle known as the ARK Respawned Bundle. This bundle includes ownership of both ARK: Survival Ascended AND ARK 2 and will be priced at $49.99. This bundle will be available to purchase from the end of August for up to 1 year (after which ARK: Survival Ascended and ARK 2 will be sold separately). Additionally, the bundle will provide players access to an exclusive 1-month closed-beta to ARK 2 in 2024 before the rest of the general public can play ARK 2. PlayStation 5 users will be able to get their hands on ARK: Survival Ascended as a standalone next-gen game at launch in August 2023 for $39.99. All the expansion packs will be sold separately on all platforms: $19.99 for Explorer’s Pass, which includes Scorched Earth, Aberration (Q4 2023), and Extinction (Q1 2024). $19.99 for Genesis Pass, which includes Genesis Part 1 (Q1 2024) and Genesis Part 2 (Q2 2024).
