ARK on Switch includes the entire ARK Island, with 100+ prehistoric- and fantasy-inspired creatures such as the T-Rex, Giganotosaurus, Direwolf and Yeti. Stranded on a mysterious prehistoric island, you must explore its vast biomes as you begin to hunt, harvest, craft tools, grow crops and build shelters to survive. Use cunning and skill to kill, tame, breed, and even ride Dinosaurs and other primitive beasts living on The ARK. Advance your technology from primitive stone tools to T-Rex-mounted laser cannons, as you team up with hundreds of players online or enjoy a solo Jurassic experience.

 

Coming to both retail and Nintendo eShop, ARK: Survival Evolved on Nintendo Switch is rated “T” for Teen (Violence, Blood, Crude Humor, Use of Alcohol) by the ESRB, MSRP $49.99.

ABOUT ABSTRACTION GAMES

Abstraction successfully bridges the gap between the major AAA publishers and the small, bootstrapped independent development teams. As it is essentially an independent development studio, Abstraction is plugged into the indie scene and knows which games and developers are worth paying attention to. Abstraction has strong publisher and first party relationships from its history of working on large adaptations, such as Angry Birds and Hotline Miami. With several major adaptations under its belt, Abstraction Games looks to continue to establish itself as a leader in the space, while also working on their own projects and games in the near future.
