The next DLC pack for survival title Ark: Survival Evolved has been announced for this fall, and it looks like an apocalyptic doozy. Called "Ark: Extinction," the expansion pack will take players to an Earth ravaged by the elements, gigantic titans, and strange creatures.
The team at Ark developer Studio Wildcard offered a brief look at what to expect with a fresh trailer, and there's plenty of eye candy here.
The trailer is a little light on details, but Studio Wildcard elaborated on a bit of what to expect via PC Gamer. Players will be able to check out new dinosaurs in Extinction, including a synthetic one that can climb walls, along with "Gasbags," which operate like floating pack mules.
As for the huge titans – one of which can be seen in the trailer – you'll have to find them through dungeons before fighting them. There's no word on how many of these bosses there will be, but they'll be one of the more dangerous additions coming along with Extinction.
In terms of items, players will be able to get their hands on drones that they can use to scout the landscape, along with a unique cryochamber that lets you freeze creatures and take them with you. Your frozen creatures can then be deployed whenever you need them. But you'll have to keep an eye on the time, as the ice surrounding the creatures will slowly melt as you journey around the landscape.
Ark: Extinction is set for release on November 6, 2018, and will be available on PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4. For now, you can catch up with Ark by grabbing the game for $24 on Xbox One and $19 at Steam.
