Studio Wildcard has announced that ARK: Survival Evolved will be seeing its full release delayed a bit on PlayStation 4 to August 29.
Doug Kennedy, CEO and Co-Founder Studio Wildcard, said this about the game’s delay:
The evolution of ARK has taken a 2-year journey through early access, and the full version will demonstrate that the extra time in development was put to good use. We spent the extra time squashing bugs, improving performance, enhancing the single player experience and delivering the end-game content that will reveal the full story of ARK. We’re excited to finally get it into the hands of survivors everywhere!
The game is available in three versions:
ARK: Survival Evolved ($59.99 USD)
This base game includes everything a burgeoning Jurassic adventurer needs to get started in the world of ARK. It’s the core game, and all free content released up to this point, offering up hundreds of hours of gameplay to players.
ARK: Survival Evolved – Explorer’s Edition ($99.99 USD)
The Explorer’s Edition takes the base game, and adds even MORE – introducing a Season Pass that will grant access to all expansion packs, starting with Scorched Earth (available now) and including more packs launching later this year and into 2018.
ARK: Survival Evolved – Limited Collector’s Edition
Only at GameStop and EB Games Canada will ARK fans be able to pre-order the “ARK: Survival Evolved Limited Collector’s Edition” for $159.99 USD/$219.99 CAN. The ultimate ARK fan’s dream, the limited Collector’s Edition is a collectible faux-wooden chest box that contains the ARK Explorer’s Edition (base game + Season Pass) along with…
