ARK: Primal Survival is an upcoming Total Conversion for ARK: Survival Evolved. It was first announced at E3 2016 and planned for release in February 2017,[1] but is currently delayed until an unknown date. In this Total Conversion, players will be able to play, live, and breed as any of the ARK’s creatures. It will feature full survival mechanics and lifecycles, including mating, growing, recruiting more creatures to the "pack" and constructing primitive dens.

The playing experience will differ depending on which creature the player is taking control of. As a Raptor, players can communicate and coordinate tactical attacks on other species. As a Titanomyrma the focus is on survival against the elements and building a thriving colony centered around ant hills.

For now, there are 8 other creatures confirmed to be playable: Direbear, Direwolf, Mesopithecus, Argentavis, Araneo, Giganotosaurus, Beaver, and Megalodon. However, it is implied that eventually all creatures will be playable. It is also hinted at that it will be possible to fight human players.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Currently, ARK: Primal Survival is not released.
  • No word has been given by Wildcard as to the state of development of the conversion since the trailer's release on June 13th, 2016. This has led many members of the community to believe that it has been silently cancelled by Wildcard.
