I have been playing ARK for a few days now. It is a multiplayer survival and/or PvP game. So far there is only one map, but it is big. You start the game as a next-to-naked human on the beach of a tropical island and have to make do with whatever you find in your immediate surrounding. Oh and did I mention? The island is filled with dinosaurs and other extinct animals. I could describe the game as kind of a minecraft-ish build/survival game in graphics on around the same level as skyrim?
It's still in its "early access" stage and I read that the finished version of the game will be released in about a year. But even though there are some graphical and other bugs and the game is not yet fully optimized-- it's very entertaining. My hope with this thread is to make a CL server, where we all join together in a so-called Tribe and tackle the game together. Building villages, taming and/or fighting dinosaurs, exploring and running for your life from crocodiles are a few examples of things this game has to offer.
