In 'Ark: Genesis' You Can Build A Base On The Back Of A Giant Turtle
In today's housing market you need to get creative if you want to get on the ladder. Whether that's building a tiny house that sits in the gap between two boomers' houses, converting an old loft space of a warehouse, or building a settlement on the back of a giant sea turtle. That last one has now translated into Ark: Genesis the next major expansion for Ark: Survival Evolved.
You can see some of the new content in the latest trailer:
The first part of Ark: Genesis (which is released through the game's season pass) will be released in December with a second part planned to be released near the end of 2020. It's built to continue the story of Ark, adding missions to lead you through the new biomes, including a volcanic world, where you can tame new creatures.
Two of the big additions (in multiple senses of the word) are giant sea turtles which you can build bases upon and sail around the world and new shape-shifting creatures which will grow from adorably small critters into massive hulking beasts.
Also new to Ark is a holographic companion who will give you hints on the world around you, guide you through crafting the new gear and structures that are being added to the game and push you to explore all the new content.
The base game of Ark: Survival Evolved is currently on a 65% sale on Steam if you're looking to get in on the action.
Ark was a hot mess when it launched. It was packed with exciting things to do but it was poorly optimised, running like a pig on consoles. However, over the years since its original release, not only has it been filled out massively with new activities, creatures, and crafting recipes, but it's become much better optimised. It's now relatively smooth to take part in all the multiplayer madness that was a bit too much for most consoles.
