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.
