Get Ready For Jurassic Ark
Many a gamer was thrilled that after such a long time in early access, the eagerly anticipated Ark: Survival Evolved has finally launched. After all, what’s not to love about sniping down dinosaurs in a desperate bid to not get eaten?
But oddly enough that wasn’t the thing that had fans in a frenzy. That honor went to the trailer to what looks like a pretty awesome live-action version of the game
According to an article on Gamespot –
After two years in Early Access, Ark: Survival Evolved finally launched this week across PC and console. To promote the release, the developers teamed up with effects studio Pixomondo, which did some amazing work on shows like Game of Thrones and Furious 7.
The brief teaser trailer shows a man washing up on the shore of a tropical world, greeted by a woman riding a dinosaur. The man quickly learns how unforgiving Ark can be.
This is just the first in a series, as the video’s description says fans can stay turned for “more cinematic episodes” coming up soon.
Ark’s full release has been a long time coming; it was originally slated for launch in Summer 2016. Later, it was scheduled for launch on August 8, 2017, but that date was pushed back as well because the certification process took longer than anticipated.
Even excluding the delays, the run-up to launch hasn’t been exactly smooth for Studio Wildcard. It sparked controversy among fans when it announced that the price of the game was doubling ahead of release; the Early Access version cost only $30. Further, it previously announced that it would wipe competitive multiplayer servers before the full release, although the developer reversed that decision in July.
While we doubt it could match the budget, if it can be anything like the exceptional Far Cry 3 mini-series that Ubisoft gave us, then Ark: Survival Evolved has the potential to devour the competition.
