We are now accept­ing sign-ups for the Closed Beta on iOS. A beta for Android will be com­ing at a lat­er date.

For this Closed Beta, we are look­ing for play­ers who are inter­est­ed in active­ly test­ing the game. We will be start­ing with a small pool of play­ers and slow­ly expand­ing over the com­ing weeks. 

Fea­tures of ARK: Sur­vival Evolved include:

– 80+ Dinosaurs: Use cun­ning strat­e­gy and tac­tics to tame, train, ride and breed the many dinosaurs and oth­er primeval crea­tures roam­ing the dynam­ic, per­sis­tent ecosys­tems across land, sea, air, and even underground.
– Dis­cov­er: Explore a mas­sive liv­ing and breath­ing pre­his­toric land­scape as you find the means to sur­vive, thrive, and escape on the Ark.
– Craft and Build: Using any means nec­es­sary to sur­vive, craft weapons, clothes, and items, and build shel­ters, vil­lages, or even large cities.
– Sur­vive Alone or With Oth­ers: Group up with, or prey on, hun­dreds of oth­er play­ers in a large-scale online world or choose to go it alone in sin­gle-play­er mode.
– Join a Tribe: The ‘Tribe’ sys­tem encour­ages coop­er­a­tion, by sup­port­ing dynam­ic par­ties to share resources, XP, and re-spawn points.

The mobile ver­sion of ARK: Sur­vival Evolved is built around the base PC game. It fea­tures the major­i­ty of crea­tures & items that you’ve come to know and love along with new fea­tures such as the Revival Plat­form, Pur­suits, an Undo but­ton when plac­ing struc­tures, and option­al Pre­mi­um items to enhance your gameplay. 
In bring­ing this game to mobile devices, some com­pro­mis­es have been made. We have removed boss bat­tles and now offer rewards for trib­uted arti­facts. Addi­tion­al­ly, you will find that Cross ARK Trans­fer & Sup­ply Bea­cons are not avail­able in the mobile version.
