As players progress through the DLC, they’ll meet more than 10 different new species – including the hawk-like Meganeura and the several-meters-long Arthropleaura millipedes.

ARK Park for PSVR updated with free locomotion and improved graphics:
resolution boost, better anti-aliasing, and bloom lighting

 

As promised, the PSVR version of ARK Park has now been updated.

In addition to free locomotion (already available on Oculus Rift and HTC Vive), ARK Park PSVR’s graphics have been improved by 16% in the visual fidelity department – resulting in a more vivid (and realistic!) dinosaur world without compromising the frame rate.

ARK Park Teaser:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7VsJZmRZrmM

How was ARK Park upgraded? To give PSVR users a measurable improvement in fidelity, the developers experimented with an alternate rendering mode. The result was a small gain in resolution, more effective anti-aliasing, and a boost to bloom lighting as well. Snail Games also spent some extra time on particular maps to bring out the fine detail in each model and texture.

More on Teleportation, Tutorials & Bug Fixes
Those who stuck with the original teleportation method have nothing to fear: It remains an option and can be easily accessed in the system settings. On the other hand, the devs added a tutorial that explains the free movement option for new players or those starting on a new playthrough from scratch.

What’s new:

  • Players are now directed to the tutorial/story mode.
  • Character creation interface and “fuzzy fonts” issues have been fixed.
  • Gatling Gun: added explanatory prompt.

Since the global launch on March 22, 2018, the physical version of ARK Park PSVR has been sold out in Japan, Hong Kong, Taiwan, and Malaysia. The number of servers has also doubled.

Pricing & Availability
ARK Park is available on HTC Vive (SteamVR and Viveport), PSVR, Oculus Rift, and Windows Mixed Reality headsets. Detailed pricing info for each store – along with platform exclusives – can be found below:

Snail Games Reveals the Future of the ARK Franchise at GDC

ARK Park and this week’s PixARK are the next two installments in the blockbuster ARK series

 

LOS ANGELES – March 27, 2018 – Last Thursday, publisher and developer Snail Games hosted game industry thought leaders, media outlets, and VIPs at Jillian’s San Francisco to celebrate the global launch of ARK Park on SteamVR, PSVR, Oculus Rift, Viveport, and Windows Mixed Reality headsets. With more than 80 guests in attendance, the event put the spotlight on the future of the popular ARK franchise with its first VR release, ARK Park. Highlights from the event included a live demo of PixARK and a heartfelt video featuring Snail Games vice president Tianqi “Sky” Wu and a loving family’s struggle with autism.

Sky’s Journey
While ARK Park was in development, the team in charge received a very special request: A father from Eastbourne, UK – Craig Proctor – asked for a pre-release copy of the game to share with his autistic son, Jason (who happens to adore dinosaurs). Craig believed that being able to walk among those majestic creatures would lift Jason’s spirits and give him a whole new perspective on life. Snail Games was happy to oblige … and the result is captured in “ARK Park Makes Dreams Come True”:

https://youtu.be/b1D7E65gKbE

“We take VR very seriously. What we have here is technology that can truly change the world,” says Tianqi “Sky” Wu, vice president at Snail Games. “It was my great pleasure to be able to make the trip to England – bringing with me a VR headset and a copy of ARK Park to show our newest and possibly youngest fan at eight years old. The love and affection I witnessed left a lasting impression on me – and seeing Jason play the game we worked so hard on filled my heart with joy.”

The video was the centerpiece in a very busy afternoon at perennial GDC hangout Jillian’s San Francisco, which has just emerged from a stunning renovation. Snail Games director Peter Kang kicked things off with an in-depth presentation on ARK Park – and he also discussed upcoming downloadable content and feature updates currently in development. Peter was followed by Studio Wildcard co-founders Jeremy Stieglitz and Jesse Rapczak – who announced that ARK: Survival Evolved has sold over 13 million copies and then proceeded to give the audience a live demo of the ARK franchise’s newest installment, PixARK, where “Death by Velociraptor” was just around the corner.

Jeremy and Jesse also made the “Dino Export” feature public for the first time, which allows ARK: Survival Evolved owners to export their dinosaurs to ARK Park. The appearance, color, and age of each dinosaur are all seamlessly synced  – allowing players to “meet” their loyal companions and check their stats face-to-face in virtual reality. More than 10 types of dinosaurs are currently supported on Oculus Rift and HTC Vive; support for PSVR is coming soon – with more “exportable” dino types in the works as well.

Snail Games vice president Tianqi “Sky” Wu was next – showcasing the video of his trip to England. He was followed by art director Guohan Tan, who further explored the magical world of ARK Park through his unique take on the franchise. Peter Kang was back for closing comments.

ARK Park – like the baby dinos in the game – is in its infancy. VR fans are now getting their first taste of this massive new addition to the ARK franchise,” says Peter Kang, director at Snail Games. “If you want more content in ARK Park, I can tell you one thing: It’s coming. This is an incredibly exciting time for us, and we can’t wait to show gamers what the future holds for them.”

About ARK Park
Based on Studio Wildcard’s best-selling ARK: Survival Evolved, ARK Park allows VR users – and their friends – to interact with more than 100 dinosaurs rendered in stunning detail across 6 massive environments.

Snail Games’ Multiplayer VR Epic ARK Park Arrives on Steam, PSVR, Oculus Rift & Viveport

Dinos are always closer than they appear … in VR!

 

LOS ANGELES – March 22, 2018 – Publisher and developer Snail Games has announced the release of its multiplayer adventure ARK Park on all major VR gaming platforms. Based on Studio Wildcard’s best-selling ARK: Survival Evolved, ARK Park allows VR users – and their friends – to interact with more than 100 dinosaurs rendered in stunning detail across 6 massive environments.

In ARK Park, your headset of choice allows you to experience a series of mind-blowing VR-driven theme-park attractions built on top of a variety of biomes – each with distinct weather patterns, vegetation, and terrain. Designed from the ground up as a realistic dinosaur theme park simulation, the game allows you to freely traverse the grounds without any restrictions whatsoever. There’s no set plot or schedule to follow: Choose how and where to go next at all times – surveying the prehistoric park at your own pace. You can even join your friends in multiplayer “park tours” to share the thrill of getting up close and personal with living, breathing dinosaurs!

“After many years in development, we can safely say that VR is starting to mature as a technology. The potential for very personal, eye-opening experiences is there – and I believe that ARK Park may be one of the first games to fully deliver on that promise,” says Tianqi Wu, vice president at Snail Games. “ARK Park is launching with hundreds of exquisitely-detailed dinosaurs, 6 awe-inspiring park attractions, and gameplay choices ranging from pure exploration and crafting to dinosaur breeding and combat. We can’t wait to welcome both ARK: Survival Evolved veterans and VR novices from all corners of the world into this new and exciting addition to the ARK franchise.”

Featuring a real-time day and night cycle, ARK Park’s time of day mechanic includes day, evening, night, and dawn. Both biomes and creatures are affected, which means that some dinosaurs may only appear at specific times. There are more than 50 different species in the game; you can interact, tame, or even fend them off! When exploring the wilderness, use a gene scanner to collect gene fragments from prehistoric life forms. A combination of puzzle-solving, exploration, and careful resource management skills is a must if you intend to capture the most prized animals. Gene fragments unlock blueprints, which can be used to craft tools, lures, items, and weapons; they also reveal detailed information about each species.

What’s better than walking among dinosaurs? Being driven on a rugged off-road vehicle … or riding your very own pet dino! Take the Crystal Shuttle and go on an amazing ride across the park and nearby ocean. The Jeep will carry you through the perilous Sequoia Rainforest – but be ready for a very talkative driver. Finally, after raising a dinosaur to adulthood, you can tame and ride it. Are you ready for an unforgettable trail excursion on the back of your Dinosaur Mount?

Key Features

  • Explore a variety of maps without a linear storyline.
  • Collect eggs and incubate them to raise your own little dinosaurs.
  • Find materials such as Dinosaur DNA and trade them to craft useful items and more powerful weapons.
  • Defend the park and its vital technology from rampaging dinosaurs across 6 gorgeous environments!
  • Revisit the dinosaurs from the popular title ARK: Survival Evolved.
  • Play with voiceovers and subtitles in English, Japanese, Korean, and Chinese (Traditional and Simplified).

Additional Highlights

Dino Breeding
Fulfill your dream of having a pet dinosaur within the Forest Trail. Incubate the eggs you collect, gather food to keep them fed, and watch them grow. You may also spray paint your dinosaur using the warpaint system from ARK: Survival Evolved.

Incubation: First, obtain dinosaur eggs through various means – such as exploration or gifts. Then place the egg into the incubator to hatch it. Distinct types of eggs will require different times to hatch.

Taming: To ensure that your baby dinos grow up to be healthy, you must check on them regularly. Use the control panel at the bottom right of the dinosaur’s cage to check their growth status and hunger. They will continue to grow even when you’re offline, so make sure they’re well fed!

Exploration
Tour distinctive primal environments solo or with a group of friends. These excursions can be relaxing and challenging at the same time. Step into tropical rainforests, snow-covered mountains, and expansive plains – along with the dinosaurs that call these habitats home!

Crafting Items
Using the integrated holographic crafting table in the Forest Trail, you can forge a variety of items – even weapons. (Why would you need a weapon at the park? You may soon find out…) If you unlock a blueprints using gene fragments, you can craft an item using the holographic crafting table. A holographic model will be displayed – along with the required material and quantity. If the requirements are met, just press the Craft button on the bottom right to begin crafting.

Defending Brainwave Towers
Brainwave Towers are used to inhibit dinosaurs from viewing humans as a threat – or worse … food. Occasionally, these towers will break down – and you may find yourself protect them from wave after wave of rampaging dinos! You and your friends must defend the base (and other humans) with custom-made weaponry – including a selection of melee and ranged weapons, along with other highly-effective combat items. Successfully completing a level will unlock the next one – and there are three difficulty levels corresponding to a different times: day, dusk and night. Swords, spears, pistols, scatterguns, and grenades will be available at launch.

Multiplayer Gameplay
Excursions are much easier to complete when players can brainstorm and search for secrets together. More difficult Hunting Maps require close collaboration and teamwork for best results!

Snail Games’ Multiplayer VR Adventure ARK Park Launching March 22

Embark on a new adventure set in the ARK: Survival Evolved universe


LOS ANGELES – Feb. 7, 2018 –
Publisher and developer Snail Games is proud to announce that the exhilarating VR multiplayer adventure ARK Park – based on Studio Wildcard’s survival classic ARK: Survival Evolvedwill be released Thursday, March 22 during the Game Developers Conference.

ARK Park allows HTC Vive, PSVR, and Oculus Rift users to interact with the majestic creatures last seen in the popular action-adventure survival game ARK: Survival Evolved – fulfilling the dream of meeting living, breathing dinosaurs “face-to-face” through a series of exquisite VR-powered theme-park attractions. Voiceovers and subtitles will be in English, Japanese, Korean, and Chinese (Traditional and Simplified).

Snail Games also announces that two editions will be available at launch: standard and deluxe. The latter includes extra outfits – along with an exclusive dinosaur mount!

The Greatest Show on Earth
Designed from the ground up as a stunningly realistic dinosaur theme park simulation, ARK Park allows players to freely traverse the grounds without any restrictions whatsoever. There’s no set plot or schedule to follow; you can choose how and where to go next at all times – exploring the prehistoric park at your own pace.

ARK Park takes the world of ARK: Survival Evolved into a wonderful and haunting new direction. It embraces virtual reality while offering players the tight gameplay mechanics from its predecessor,” says Tianqi Wu, vice president of Snail Games. “We’re thrilled to deliver Snail Games’ first VR title to our fans in March – and we couldn’t be more pleased with the team’s hard work throughout the development of ARK Park.”

Key Features

  • Explore a variety of maps without a linear storyline.
  • Collect eggs and incubate them to raise your own little dinosaurs.
  • Find materials such as Dinosaur DNA and trade them to craft useful items and more powerful weapons.
  • Defend the park and its vital technology from rampaging dinosaurs across 6 distinct levels!
  • Revisit the dinosaurs from the popular title ARK: Survival Evolved.

Additional Highlights

Exploration
Tour distinctive primal environments solo or with a group of friends. These excursions can be relaxing and challenging at the same time. Step into the tropical rainforests, snow-covered mountains, and expansive plains – along with the dinosaurs that call these habitats home!

Gene Collecting
Visitors may collect “Gene Cubes” from the many extinct creatures during excursions. However, collecting all of them can be challenging due to the reclusive habits of particular species. Determined visitors will need to use a combination of puzzle-solving, exploration, and careful resource management to bag the most prized animals. The gene cubes are necessary for unlocking blueprints, which can be used to craft tools, lures, items and weapons.

Dinosaur Breeding
Incubate the eggs you collect and raise your own little dinosaurs. Gather food to keep them fed and watch them grow. You may also spray paint your dinosaur using the warpaint system from ARK: Survival Evolved. Nothing beats the feeling of going on dinosaur rides as your baby dinosaur grows into adulthood 🙂

Combat
In Story Mode, something goes wrong with the park’s Brainwave Device – resulting in herds of rampaging dinosaurs everywhere. You and your friends must defend the base (and other humans) with custom-made weaponry – including a selection of melee and ranged weapons, along with other highly-effective combat items. Swords, spears, pistols, scatterguns, and grenades will be available at launch.

Multiplayer Gameplay
Excursions are much easier to complete when players can brainstorm and search for secrets together. More difficult Hunting Maps require close collaboration and teamwork for best results!

Availability
ARK Park will be available on Steam VR/HTC Vive, PSVR, and Oculus Rift on Thursday, March 22.
