Studio Wildcard showed the first gameplay trailer of Ark: Survival Ascended today and announced the game has been released through Steam Early Access.
It will arrive on PS5 and Xbox Series X/S in November.
Announced in April 2023, Ascended is a next-generation remaster of Survival Evolved developed using Unreal Engine 5 and includes access to all of Ark's worlds, including Scorched Earth, Aberration, Extinction, Genesis Part 1, and Genesis Part 2.
It features advanced physics systems such as dynamic water, fully interactive physical foliage, redesigned User Interfaces, dynamic navigation for pathfinding, Photo Mode, new Camera systems, new Map system, Tracking System, new Structures and Items, new Creatures, and more.
It will feature cross-platform modding, online multiplayer for up to 70 players, private-session multiplayer for up to 8 players, and local split-screen for 2-4 players. It also supports cross-platform multiplayer.
You can form online tribes across different gaming platforms and work together. Console and PC players will have this capability at launch, with Steam PC players joining cross-platform in December 2023.
