The evolution of humanity

ARK: Survival Evolved is an adventure game that will take you back to humanity’s prehistoric times. It is a story of survival from when man first walks the earth with absolutely nothing in its stead. ARK: Survival Evolved will make you experience the different stages of life as you try to survive and adapt to the changes in your environment and the evolution of all things around you. 

Living through the times

Starting from the very beginning of existence, ARK: Survival Evolved will take you on a journey through different eras. As the times change, you will have to learn how to survive by adapting and strategizing how you will surpass each challenging period. The game incorporates scenarios where you may experience perilous weathers and encounter life-threatening creatures. Aside from that, surviving depends not only on how you will keep yourself safe from harm brought by outside elements. In order to live another day, you will have to take good care of yourself. Hunt for food and seek shelter where you can rest and replenish. Of course, it is not going to be like this forever. From living inside caves and up the trees, your lifestyle will also change along with the years. You will be building farms and taking care of livestock, establish stronger homes that can withstand fiery storms, and eventually, you will dive in the era of technology. ARK: Survival Evolved is an enjoyable simulation that puts you through the test of time. You will be able to see how far humanity has gone. There are discoveries to be made and goals to achieve aside from simply surviving long enough to witness another sunset. After all, you are not the only one existing in the area and other tribes will soon make their appearance. This is where combat begins as you try to wrestle with other groups in order to keep your territories safe and resources intact. 

Have a pet dinosaur!

So while it does follow historical themes, it also has taken its liberty in twisting some of the facts. like how humans and dinosaurs can co-exist! It may sound absurd at first but keep in mind that those dinosaurs will be essential in vastly improving your chances of survival. ARK: Survival Evolve allows you to catch, tame, and train these dinosaurs so they can assist you not only in your daily tasks but as well as in the battle against other rising civilizations. You can catch and keep as many as you can. As an added bonus, you can even breed them! Being able to keep dinosaurs as pets is a nice and unique feature that makes the game interesting all throughout.

Be a survivor

ARK: Survival Evolved is a good way to pass the time. There are many activities you can do like exploring, hunting, building, and fighting. The wide variations in tasks ensure you that you will not find the game boring after just a few hours of playing. It is also rewarding to see just how far you have gone from being a helpless human being to becoming a powerful empire.
