Ark 2 delayed but a Survival Evolved remaster is coming, for a price

Studio Wildcard announces an Ark 2 delay, meaning we won’t see Vin Diesel take his spear in the next version of the popular dinosaur survival game until “late 2024” on Steam and PC Game Pass. Instead, the team says players can expect a remaster of the first game titled Ark: Survival Ascended, though the decision to pay for the upgrade, despite previous suggestions, could be free and close the game. official servers for the original. after the new version. the release leaves many scratching their heads.

“Unreal Engine 5 is incredibly new technology for us,” the team explains in a blog post on Ark’s roadmap. As such, the changes involved in working with new technology mean that development of the sequel will take longer than originally anticipated. However, he continues: “Our desire to push the limits of what Ark 2 is led us to the decision to create an intermediate product of Unreal Engine 5 Ark, allowing us to improve our mastery of the new engine and ultimately , to figure it out”. test some of our riskiest technical advances.

The result is Ark: Survival Ascended, a “next-gen remaster of our beloved Ark: Survival Evolved” slated to launch in August. It will include The Island, Survival of the Fittest, and all “non-canon” DLC maps as a base product, but the expansion packs that were released during the lifetime of the original game are bundled into two separate packs, each of they will be sold separately and must be purchased in addition to the base price of Ark: Survival Ascended.

While it’s possible to buy a bundle that includes both this new remaster and Ark 2, Studio Wildcard also says that the official servers for the original Ark: Survival Evolved will be shut down when Survival Ascended launches in August. You’ll still have the option to play solo or on player-hosted servers, but with no cross-play support between the two versions. The new game also includes support for cross-platform modding tools, with an option for modmakers to charge for their mods if they choose.

“This is the best April Fool’s Day joke I’ve heard in a long time,” a user comments on Ark Reddit, though the announcement was made on March 31 and appears to be real. While a next-gen overhaul of the first game that helps pave the way for the sequel is a good idea, the decision to charge for both the remake and its expansions has some gamers wondering why they should pay for it again. continue playing the game on official servers.
