ARK: Genesis Part 2 launches today

ARK: Genesis Part 2

Six years ago ARK: Survival Evolved charged its way onto Steam Early Access. Now the final chapter of the eon-spanning story concludes with the release of ARK: Genesis Part 2.

“In Genesis Part 2, Survivors will explore a vast new world teeming with strange biomes and exotic creatures, while engaging in story-oriented missions that test their mettle, ingenuity, and survival skills. This final confrontation between the sprightly HLN-A and the deranged Sir Edmund Rockwell takes place on a gigantic colony ship traveling through deep space, and players will need to use all their ARK experience to survive,” says Studio Wildcard.

The ARK: Genesis Part 2 expansion pack is a narrative bridge between the current game and its recently announced sequel, ARK IIGenesis Part 2 also introduces new voiceover talent to the ARK universe with David Tennant (Doctor WhoGood Omens) playing the villainous Sir Edmund Rockwell, and Madeleine Madden (The Wheel of TimePicnic at Hanging RockDora and the Lost City of Gold) taking on the in-game robotic AI companion HLN-A/Helena Walker.
