ARK: Survival of the Fittest is now an eSport.

Popular ARK: Survival Evolved mod Survival of the Fittest has been spun out into a standalone title.

The free-to-play release is described as a “MOSA” – a multiplayer online survival arena – and is backed up with ELO rankings, matchmaking, leaderboards, monthly cash prizes for pro-tier players and more.

The news appears to have leaked early via the unlisted trailer below. According to the soon-to-be-removed Steam Workshop page, you will be able to download the game directly from its own Steam store page. Expect that link to become active soon.
