Ark: Survival Evolved was released on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One in August 2017.

The game is set in a massive open-world featuring a dynamic day/night cycle, with survival, unsurprisingly, the name of the game. Players can choose from a first or third-person perspective, and must first establish a base, start a fire, and gather some weapons to stand a chance in the wilderness.

Obviously, being a survival game, you’ll have to cope with numerous attributes for your character: health, stamina, oxygen, hunger, thirst, and more must be monitored at all times, or you’ll end up in bad shape.

Ark’s game world, which measures a whopping 19 square miles, is home to 176 creatures, many of which are based on real dinosaurs. However, as development continued, Wildcard added more fantastical beasts into the mix, such as wyverns, manicures, and even a phoenix.

Taming these creatures is instrumental in your survival, although you’ll have to keep a close eye on them and feed them their preferred food when necessary. You’re also able to mount tamed creatures, allowing you to engage in combat while doing so.

Ark PS4 update 1.99 is available for download now.
