ARK: Survival Evolved’s Extinction expansion gets a ground shaking reveal

Studio Wildcard is set to expand on their wildly popular multiplatform dinosaur-themed survival title ARK: Survival Evolved this fall with the announcement of ARK: Extinction.

The announcement, possibly timed to coincide with the dino-fueled marketing of Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom (which is not in any way related), reveals that the significant-sized expansion will apparently finish up the journey on November 6th, 2018. Prior to the release though, there will be Extinction “Explorer Notes” for current ARK: Survival Evolved players leading up to the big launch, which will grant players new skins and Dinosaur variants. Those who own the game and Explorer’s Pack or the Season Pass will get the Extinction pack for no additional charge in November, although it will also be available a la carte at the same time.

See the announce trailer and new screens below.

Today, Studio Wildcard released into the wild its first trailer for ARK: Extinction, the upcoming expansion pack of its dinosaur action-adventure game ARK: Survival Evolved! Finish your journey through the worlds of ARK in ?Extinction?, where the story began and ends: on Earth itself! An Element-infested, ravaged planet filled with fantastical creatures both organic and technological, Earth holds both the secrets of the past and the keys to its salvation. As a veteran Survivor who has conquered all previous obstacles, the ultimate challenge awaits: can you defeat the gigantic roaming Titans which dominate the planet and complete the ARK cycle to save Earth’s future?

In the months leading up to Extinction, there will be regular drops of Extinction-related Explorer Notes within ARK and its already released expansion packs, which once collected will unlock new skins, as well as the appearance of powerful Tek-themed Dinosaur variants within the ARKs. Studio Wildcard released the first set of these Explorer Notes last Friday, along with the first Extinction related skin ?Corrupted Helm?. ARK: Extinction will release worldwide November 6, 2018, for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Steam, joining the desert-themed Scorched Earth and the underground, derelict biome Aberration, in continuing to unravel the mysteries of ARK!

ARK Survivors who own the Explorer?s Pack or Season Pass will automatically receive Extinction for no additional cost, it will also be available as a standalone expansion pack and upgrade.
