ARK: Survival Evolved now available on Windows 10 Store
Studio Wildcard today announced the release of the multi-million selling dinosaur action-adventure survival game, ARK: Survival Evolved on the Windows 10 store. Already available for Xbox One and Xbox One X enhanced, ARK is now an Xbox Play Anywhere title that allows players who purchase the game digitally to play on both platforms at no additional cost. Tied to the players’ Microsoft account, ARK survivors can now pick up their adventure where they left off, switching between their Xbox One and PC while taking their saved progress, Gamerscore, DLC, and achievements with them.
Additionally, ARK for Windows 10 version supports Microsoft’s cross-play feature, which means Xbox One and Win 10 players will be able to cooperate or compete on the same servers to capture, tame and train some of the Jurassic-era’s most powerful beasts, from the vicious Velociraptor, to the earth-shaking Titanosaur!
Windows 10 purchasers of ARK: Survival Evolved can also purchase its Expansion Packs including Scorched Earth and last week’s update – the derelict, malfunctioning underground world of Aberration, loaded with fascinating items including five new Biomes, 14 new Creatures and 30 new Engrams to craft. Aberration is available now for $19.99 USD or is free for download for owners of the ARK Season Pass.
- Tame New Creatures: The intense radiation of Aberration has led to incredible genetic mutations, resulting in dozens of new creatures with amazing abilities! Clamber up walls & glide through the air on the back of a camouflaging chameleon-like ‘Rock Drake’, keep the dark at bay with one of four friendly ‘Lantern Pets’, or grab and toss multiple creatures simultaneously with a massive ‘Cave Crustacean’, or — if you are brave enough – allow the horrific “Reaper Queen” to impregnate you, and spawn a vicious male Reaper alien lifeform you can tame and control.
- Craft 50+ Unique Items: Use cave-climbing picks, gliding wingsuits, and ziplines to traverse this new ARK. Learn advanced engrams to dominate the harsh environment, protect yourself with hazmat outfits, charge lanterns, flashbangs, batteries, glowsticks, railguns and much more. Thrive by gathering new resources, using fishing baskets, gas collectors, fortify your home within the caverns using cliff structures, and much more!
- Conquer New Challenges: With the maintenance systems of this new ARK malfunctioning, earthquakes, radiation exposure, gas leaks, and Element chambers are among the many hazards that survivors will learn to grapple with Aberration’s varied biomes, both aboveground and below the surface. Gear-up to take on the horrifying threat lurking within the deepest depths of Aberration…
Since its launch into Steam’s early access program in June 2015, over 12 Million survivors have been stranded on the ARK island, wandering into an incredible land to discover how to tame, train, ride, and breed the 100+ dinosaurs and primeval creatures roaming the land.
ARK: Survival Evolved is rated “T” for Teen (Violence, Blood, Crude Humor, Use of Alcohol) by the ESRB.
