ARK: Survival Evolved is an action-packed dinosaur and survival game for computers which is much related to Minecraft. This game is all about dinosaurs where you come across an island occupied by them. Your sole mission is to discover the happenings while trying to survive together with other users. Moreover, you need to seek for resources, generate new objects using a crafting system, build structures and shelters. ARK: Survival Evolved can be distinguished from the other similar games with the presence of dinosaurs in it. It’s more like creating your own version of Jurassic Park and experiencing it.
The game can be played by navigating by foot or by riding a pre-historic animal. Players can even use firearms and advanced weapons to defend themselves from the aggressive animals and humans, with the ability to build bases as a defense. ARK: Survival Evolved is a multiplayer game which can also be played as a single player.
The game includes 60 species of dinosaurs who can be tamed by feeding with food when they are rendered from unconsciousness. Once a dinosaur is successfully tamed, you can use its abilities like underwater movement or its statistics such as speed or health. With the bigger dinosaurs, you can ride over them along with taking full control over your weapons. The dinosaurs can also be used to carry items. Moreover, you can also issue offensive or defensive commands to them. The game also features several other prehistoric animals like the dodo, saber-toothed cat, wooly mammoth, Meganeura, Titanomyrma, and Doedicurus.
