ARK Survival of the Fittest - news

ARK: Survival of the Fittest (ARK: SotF) will launch on PlayStation 4 on July 19. The free to play spin-off of ARK will debut this summer through the PS4's beta program and it will feature a new exclusive offline practice mode along with ELO rating, leaderboards, match-making and pro-tier monthly cash prizes.

“PlayStation gamers will now get the raw emotional sense of competitive satisfaction that PC gamers have been experiencing, as they wage war to survive and thrive,” said Jesse Rapczak, co-founder, co-creative director, Studio Wildcard. “The simple addition of the practice mode means a lot, as PS4 gamers can hone their skills before jumping into the competitive wilds to form tribes, tame T-Rexes, and use everything in the ARK sandbox to fight it out. We don’t call it Survival of the Fittest for nothing!”

In ARK: SotF 72 players fight against each other in a Hunger Games-style competition within an island. Players can form tribes and choose unofficial and official servers with a variety of game lengths. Each month 10 ranked players in each “Survivor League” will be awarded a cash prize corresponding to their ranked placement. Rankings for these elite titles will be visible in real time
