Ark: Primal Survival lets you play as Dinosaurs

Ark: Primal Survival is going to let you live our your dreams of sexing up dinosaurs, bears, and bugs.

During the PC Gaming show at E3, Studio Wildcard had few updates about Ark, including the new mode that will let you play as animals.

“ARK: Primal Survival is an upcoming Total Conversion where survivors will be able to play, live, and breed as any of the ARK’s creatures,” said associate producer Jathiesh Karunakaran on Steam. “Survivors will experience full survival mechanics and lifecycles, including mating, growing, recruiting more creatures to your ‘pack,’ even constructing primitive dens.”

According to the YouTube video description, Ark: Primal Survival will feature “asymmetric gameplay against or with other specifics, including humans, as well as AI creatures. The new functionality associated with this Primal Survival mode will also enable mod creators to build much more intricate mods involving playing as these various creatures.”

Meanwhile the Red Redwood Biomes update introduces a new biome filled with humongous redwoods allowing you to construct your very own Ewok village. You can check out the trailer below.

There’s no news on a release date for Ark: Primal Survival, but the Redwood Biome update will be available on PC on June 22, and Xbox One soon after.
