The Ark 2 has been in development and will be released on PS4, Xbox One, and PC on September 25, 2022. The exact Ark II release time is unknown, but we can assume it might be around 3-7 am Eastern Time.
There are various things to do in this sequel of Ark: Survival Evolved, such as hunting dinosaurs, building houses and castles with blocks, just like Minecraft. Players can use dragons and ride them. There are different modes, such as player vs. environment (PvE) or player vs. player (PVP). Your weapons will not deteriorate over time, so you won’t have to spend hours honing them, which should make survival games like this a bit simpler to play. We will also have a map editor to create your world by placing mountains, hills, rivers, etc. What’s more, you can even use the creatures of Ark 2 to protect your base, so if someone attacks it, they are in for a treat!
Since Ark 1 was such a big success with over 10 million players online, there is no doubt Ark 2 will be played frequently, too, and we believe this is one of the most anticipated games of 2022.

Ark 2 Story
A guy must struggle for his survival when he awakens in a foreign world. When the Ark 2 trailer starts, we see a man waking up from sleep in some sort of pod. He opens it and gets out without knowing where he is or how he got there. Then suddenly the ground shakes violently and cracks open beneath him, causing him to fall down into the cave below. He flees from a monstrous T-Rex that wants to eat him after falling from the sky and landing on another side of the map.
Now that’s just one example of what you will see when playing this game. There are many more deadly creatures in Ark II that you might have seen in previous installments but even more powerful than before!
Ark 2 Characters
Now, before we get into what you can do in Ark 2 and the numerous modes it has to offer, let’s take a look at some of the characters that will make an appearance in this epic sequel.
The first one is a man who wakes up from sleep and doesn’t know where he is or how got there. Most likely you can choose to play like him, so your main character is not fixed. But thinking logically, the developer probably chose this character as it fits nicely with the storyline. The guy was asleep and now he has to find out where he is and what to do next.
Secondly, you might encounter dragons flying through the air or lying on top of mountains waiting for their prey, which in this case, might be you. Remember the dragon in Peter Jackson’s film trilogy The Lord of the Rings? Well, it has nothing on these dragons! They are more deadly than ever before so get your weapons ready to battle against them.
Thirdly, there are also all-new dinosaurs appearing throughout the world. Do you remember hunting for brontosaurus eggs in Ark 1? Well, that is still possible even though they have been changed to ankylosaurus eggs. You can find them on lowland hills or mountain tops. If you kill one of these creatures with your sword, use a pickaxe to collect their bones and use them to produce fatal darts when you’re ready to kill something else. Or if you are a peaceful guy and prefer not to kill anything, you can always tame one of these creatures and ride them like a horse.
Ark 2 for PlayStation
Since the game is already tagged as “launch exclusive title” like the first game series, it can be anticipated that the game is playable on Xbox and PC. However, PlayStation users should not be entirely agitated as later access might be given access a year after the launching of the game. The reason for this decision might be due to marketing reasons or simply because they want to gather more players with an open beta testing event before releasing the full version. However, we will keep you updated and notify you as soon as any new information about Ark 2’s release date on PS4 and other platforms becomes available!
Ark 2 for Xbox
Ark 2 will be a “console launch exclusive” on Xbox Series X|S, similar to the PlayStation series. Given the lengthy relationship between Studio Wildcard and Microsoft, this is to be anticipated. Ark: Survival Evolved, the first game in the series, was also released exclusively for Xbox in 2015. However, whenever Ark II is launched, it may be possible to play it on other platforms.
Ark 2 for PC
Ark 2 will launch on PC after its initial release for Xbox Series X|S. It is likely that Ark 2 games will follow the same pattern as other Studio Wildcard products, such as ARK: Survival Evolved and ARK: Aberration which both were released in August 2017. As such, we can expect a 2019-2020 release date for Ark II on PC.
Now that we’ve given you an overview of all the different characters and creatures you might encounter when playing the game, let’s talk about what you actually do in this epic open-world adventure together with your friends!
Ark II is a highly anticipated sequel to the original Ark game. You can expect tons of new creatures, characters, and places to discover. If you want to buy this game for yourself or as a present for a gaming friend, keep an eye out for its release date, which is expected to be somewhere in 2022.
