ARK: Survival Evolved (Review)
If there's one game that delivers a good experience,it's ARK: Survival Evolved. This game seriously reminds me of an MMO game by the name of DINOSTORM. I actually remembered it.
ARK is an action-adventure survival video game developed by Studio Wildcard in collaboration with Instinct Games, Efecto Studios, and Virtual Basement. It was released in August 2017 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Microsoft Windows, OS X and Linux. In the game, players must survive being stranded on an island filled with roaming dinosaurs and other prehistoric animals, natural hazards, and potentially hostile human players.
The game is played from either a third-person or first-person perspective and its open world is navigated on foot or by riding a prehistoric animal. Players can use firearms and improvised weapons to defend against hostile humans and creatures, with the ability to build bases as defense. The game has both single-player and multiplayer options.
This game was created using Unreal Engine 4,which is a program that helps to create an accurate 3D environment. This game has over tens of thousands of artificial intelligence entities, according to Rapczak. It also features support for virtual reality (VR) gameplay; Rapczak, who has almost three years of experience with head-mounted displays, described the game as being designed with Virtual Reality in mind from the beginning.
The game was initially released through Steam Early Access for Microsoft Windows on June 2, 2015, for Linux and OS X on July 1, 2015, and through the Xbox Game Preview Program for Xbox One on December 16, 2015; a PlayStation 4 version was released on December 6, 2016. The final game will launch in August 2017. It was originally intended for release in June 2016,but was delayed in April. The game will launch with support for Oculus Rift and PlayStation VR, and the Xbox One version will be released via the ID@Xbox program.
There are quite a number of Dino species in the game. The dinosaurs in the game can be tamed by feeding them food after they have been rendered unconscious, or by using kibble designed especially for each species. Once a dinosaur is tamed, players can utilize the dinosaur's abilities, such as flight or fast underwater movement, as well as its statistics, such as speed, health and damage. When riding atop certain creatures, players can use their weapons. With the larger dinosaurs, other players can ride on the side with full control of their own weapons. They can also be used to carry items, and players can issue offensive and defensive commands to them; for example, a pack of Utahraptors can be assigned to defend the base, or a group of Triceratops can be ordered to attack an enemy's base. The game also features various other animals, such as the dodo, saber-toothed cat, woolly mammoth, Meganeura, Titanomyrma, and Doedicurus. Every creature in the game has living ecosystems and predator hierarchies.
I'd definitely recommend this game to anybody who wants to rule em all.
