ARK: Survival Evolved, a first-person survival action game that has already made a splash through Steam's Early Access program on PC, is destined to get a little early access love on Xbox One on December 16. As reported by IGN, ARK: Survival Evolved will be available in mid-December for $34.99 through the Xbox Game Preview program, which debuted earlier this year. Speaking to IGN, developer Studio Wildcard's co-founder Jess Rapczak talked a little bit about the studio's goals with ARK on the Xbox Game Preview program:
"Through all of this, we hope to help Microsoft build out Xbox Game Preview while giving Xbox One gamers something totally new and different than the standard updated version of old franchises. Gamers want new experiences on their consoles, and we feel that ARK, which is one of the few dinosaur games on the market, and one of the only, if not the only true multiplayer survival games on console, will bring that fresh gaming experience that helps define this generation."
Rapczak says that when ARK: Survival Evolved makes its XPG debut later this month, it will have all of the same content that is currently in the PC preview.
The game is due to officially launch on consoles and PC in June 2016. Will you be snagging the game early through the Xbox Game Preview program? Let us know in the comments below!
