PlayStation VR owners have the benefit of being able to buy their videogames both digitally, off the PlayStation Store, and physically from retailers for select titles. Today, Snail Games has announced that ARK Park will be joining those select few with consumers in North America, Europe, and Australia able to purchase the title at retail locations now.
The dinosaur-themed multiplayer online adventure takes a somewhat different approach to gameplay than the videogame its based on, Studio Wildcard’s ARK: Survival Evolved. Instead, players find themselves inside a dinosaur theme park, able to freely explore this grand, virtual world where there’s no set plotline or schedule.
Players are able to explore ten large maps containing dinosaurs, ancient creatures, collectables, challenges and easter eggs. With both single-player and multiplayer options locations can be explored by yourself or with a group of other players. Users will be able to collect ‘Gene Fragments’ which can be found using various combinations of puzzle-solving, reflexes or resource management to get hold of the rarest fragments. These fragments can then be used to unlock new crafting blueprints, or even new maps to explore.
“ARK Park has sold incredibly well worldwide since its March release,” explains Snail Games in a statement. “The game was the third best-selling PSVR title in Japan, which prompted Snail Games to move forward with a physical release after repeated requests from the Japanese community. Also, ARK Park sold out in Hong Kong, Taiwan, Singapore, and Malaysia.”
If you buy the physical version of ARK Park will also get to enjoy the “Pterosaur Hill” DLC for free – which introduced the Crystal Sky, Mountain Lake, and Aviary maps a few months ago.
The retail version of ARK Park will be priced at $39.99 USD / $49.99 CAD / £44.99 GBP / €39.99 EUR/ $69.99 AUD for the Standard Edition. For further updates keep reading VRFocus.
