ARK: Survival of the Fittest

An online action game focused on PvP competition and a spin-off installment of the ARK series. The title started out as a fan modification which was eventually made into a standalone production with the support of Survival Evolved’s developers. The gameplay premise of ARK: Survival of the Fittest was directly inspired by the popular movie series The Hunger Games. As many as 72 players divided into several six-member teams can play simultaneously. While playing, the participants can make use of a rich arsenal of weapons, armor, and traps. Taming dinosaurs and using them as mounts is also of great importance. The competition takes place in specially-designed closed arenas, up to the moment when there is only one team left standing. The tension is increased by the constantly shrinking circle of death which forces the players to clash more frequently as matches progress.

ARK: Survival of the Fittest for PC / Windows is a free-to-play online action game. It is a spin-off to ARK: Survival Evolved and started out as a fan mod for this title; only later it was converted into a standalone commercial project.

Mechanics

ARK: Survival of the Fittest offers no story campaign and is focused solely on multiplayer PvP matches in which up to 72 players divided into several tribes compete on large, enclosed arenas. A game ends when there is only one team left standing. Each tribe can consist of up to six players, which means that a maximum o twelve such teams can romp around the map. Of course, those who prefer more intimate atmosphere can play in a significantly smaller group.

At the beginning of a match, the players are taken to an area. In the center of it, there is a pile of useful items. Each player has to decide whether or not they are worth dying for at an early stage of the gamer or is it better to quickly retreat into the nearby forest. While playing, it is crucial to find and tame dinosaurs and other wild beasts that serve as mounts and help in combat. The tension is maintained by the so-called circle of death which shrinks the battlefield with each passing minute, forcing the players to clash more often.

In the game, the players can make use of a rich arsenal of weapons, armors, and traps as well as the possibility of quick erection of simple structures. The title offers quite a freedom in configuring matches, allowing us to compete on various scales, starting with short 30-minute battles and ending with grand 3-hour wars. Moreover, ARK: Survival of the Fittest for PC / Windows puts an emphasis on the e-sport aspect. Those with a professional attitude towards games can rival in special leaderboards and participate in tournaments.
