The virtual reality (VR) spin off for popular survival crafting title ARK: Survival Evolved titled ARK PARK has just seen a new trailer and screenshots revealed during the ChinaJoy event, one of Asia’s biggest videogaming events.
ARK: Survival Evolved was released into Early Access on 2nd June, 2015, with an expected release date for the final version of 8th August, 2017. The title puts the player in the role of a human stranded on an alien world populated by dinosaurs and other prehistoric creatures. The player must learn how to gather materials, craft weapons and hunt down the creatures in order to stay alive.
Snails Games, the developer of ARK PARK, sent its vice president, Tianqi Wu to take the stage at ChinaJoy alongside art director Guohan Tang to discuss the creative development of the VR title. The new trailer offers a look at some of the core gameplay, which involves a tower defence-style of combat. Players are able to customise their avatar, then enter the world to take on giant dinosaurs, gather materials and craft bigger and better weaponry.
The developers describe ARK PARK as an ‘extension’ of ARK: Survival Evolved. Players will be able to interact with over 100 unique creatures patterned after animals from Earth’s pre-history. There is a multiplayer mode planned, so players can work together to take down might beasts.
ARK PARK is due for release on Oculus Rift, HTC Vive and PlayStation VR some time in Q4 of 2017. A price has yet to be confirmed. The trailer for the upcoming title is available to view below.
