ARK: The Survival of the Fittest

The ARK: Survival of the Fittest battle royale was just recently updated on PC.

The ultimate Jurassic free-for-all to see who will be the last survivor standing just got updated. ARK: The Survival of the Fittest is a spin-off of ARK: Survival Evolved that pits up to 60 combatants against each other in a fast-paced, action-packed struggle for survival. Players are ultimately pushed into an epic final showdown leading their Dinosaur Armies into battle.

ARK: The Survival Of The Fittest, which is now released as a prototype available for players to try out, revives the competitive online survival arena ARK experience on PC via Steam with a significant number of technical/quality of life/balance changes to make it more approachable for all players.

Originally beta-launched in 2016, ARK: The Survival Of The Fittest is the only battle royale focused on large-scale creature-army confrontations, combined with a real-time strategy (RTS) overlay, for unique experiences in every match. Survivors will assemble dinosaur armies and duke it out in epic dino battles until one tribe is left standing victorious.

At the moment, the new update is just live on PC. A crossplay console release is planned for 2023. We will let you know when we learn more.
