Action 29 August 2017
A sandbox survival simulator set in an open world, which draws inspiration from productions such as DayZ. Unlike in the aforementioned title, this time we fight against powerful prehistoric creature instead of zombies. The game is the debut of an independent studio called Wildcard, founded by a former employee of Microsoft Game Studios. The player begins the game defenseless and naked on an unidentified island, and his or her task is to survive in this new, harsh environment. In order to do that, we must hunt and gather various raw materials which will be used to create the much needed weapons and tools. One of the most fun aspects of ARK: Survival Evolved are the meticulously depicted creatures – the game features more than 60 species of dinosaurs and prehistoric mammals. Since the title features o multiplayer experience, meeting other players in the game world will happen and, depending on their attitude, we can fight them or establish valuable alliances.
ARK: Survival of the Fittest
Action 29 August 2017
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.
