Today Studio Wildcard announced, ARK: Survival Evolved, an open world dinosaur survival game. Along with this little nugget, they also came out along with Sony and announced that this would be coming to the PS4, and not only that, but that they are building it for Project Morpheus as well! So this would make it the first official Project Morpheus game to be announced. Along with the announcement they also released this gameplay video as well.
The game has you the the player, playing either a man or a woman stranded on a an Island called ARK that is inhabited by all sorts of dinosaurs and other primitive creatures, and you must use your wit and cunning to create tools, tame some of the dinosaurs and learn to survive.
The player will be forced to hunt, harvest resources, craft items, grow crops, research technologies, and build shelters to withstand the elements, while teaming up with or preying upon hundreds of other players to survive, all while trying to escape.
They have also stated that the game will be coming for PC/MAC on Steam as well as Xbox One, no word on whither or not they will be supporting Occulus or the HTC Vive on PC or not, but here is hoping.
No Official release date has been given yet, but they are doing a Steam early access release on June 2nd for anyone interested in getting in a little early.
