ARK: Survival Evolved

ARK: Survival Evolved is a game from Studio Wildcard. The task before the player is to survive while the main opponents are dinosaurs. In order to live, we need to create a hideaway which is built of the necessary components: doors, floors, windows. These need to be built with crafted resources. This will protect us from the dinosaurs. But not only from them. Our opponents are also other players who live in the open world of the game.

Ark: Survival Evolved – the Basics of Survival Tutorial

At the beginning of the game, we see our hero defenseless at the island. The protagonist must acquire everything he needs for survival from scratch and by himself. Speaking of which, the character we control might be a man or a woman. Right from the start, it is obvious that in order to survive we need to have drinking water and food. Interestingly, just like in real life different foods have different nutritional values. How our character fares in this regard can be checked in one of the tabs in the game interface. There we can find information about our current health level, or hunger and thirst, the oxygen and numerous other indicators which will tell us what we need to focus our attention at.

Soon enough we also have to build a shelter. The resource that we’ll for sure need for this is wood. And wood can be gained from the forest trees. But of course, we will require also other resources like metal. A proper shelter will give us a chance to hide and this it will increase our chances of survival. Our home can be customized by painting it with our personal colors. The same can be done with our clothes.

It’s worth to note that also our character can be customized. We can pick eye color, hair, skin and a type of body.

Ark: Survival Evolved – the Wildlife

Another important goal of the game is taming the dinosaurs. In order to achieve that the player first needs to weaken the animal. Then he needs to take care of it by feeding it. The tamed dinosaur will then do our bidding. IF we trained it well, it will reciprocate by carrying our armor, weapons and other equipment. If it is big enough we can also mount it ourselves.

Our hero can also become a farmer. Gathering necessary seeds is the first step to success. The seeds need then be planted, watered and fertilized with the appropriate products can be a source of food which will let us survive longer.

In order to earn valuable items, we need to win fights with the biggest opponents. They are hard to beat but we will always find something of value in our loot.

The Multiplayer Aspect

As far as the other players are concerned, they may be hostile. It’s not a rule, however. It all depends on the player’s preferences. With those of a more peaceful nature, we can form groups of common interest. Such tribes have their own items and places which belong to the whole community and can be used for the benefit of the members.

If we don’t fancy online play we can also have fun with ARK: Survival Evolved in an offline mode. This can be a major challenge though. Without a group support, it is likely that we will soon perish.
