Ark: Survival Evolved and Minecraft hybrid 'PixARK' gets Xbox Game Preview release date

Yesterday, during Microsoft's "Inside Xbox" show, Snail Games announced that its open world voxel-based survival game "PixARK" will enter Xbox Game Preview on March 27, 2018. As the name suggests, the game is inspired by the world of Ark: Survival Evolved and other such games.

PixARK will be coming to Xbox One, PC, Nintendo Switch, and PlayStation 4 in 2018. It's unclear if the game will support PlayStation 4 Pro as the developer only confirmed Xbox One X support specifically.

Just like Ark: Survival Evolved, PixARK leaves a group of players stranded on a mysterious island. As expected, to survive, they must hunt, harvest, craft items, grow crops, and build shelters to protect themselves from dinosaurs, natural disasters, and hostile human players. You can also tame creatures, which plays a major role in the experience.

The game definitely has an interesting premise so hopefully it will deliver when it's available on Xbox One later month. However, those who want to play the more mature version can do so right now.

Ark: Survival Evolved is incredibly popular and has been played by over twelve million players since it launched in 2015. The game has numerous servers so you can team up with your friends and other individuals to conquer the map.
