Studio Wildcard and Snail Games are bringing a little piece of ARK: Survival Evolved to VR headsets. Snail Games is creating a VR experience called ARK Park for HTC Vive, Oculus Rift, and PlayStation VR. Studio Wildcard is serving as creative consultants on the project.
ARK Park takes players on an educational tour in a park filled with hundreds of creatures from the Jurassic era that are featured in the hit title ARK: Survival Evolved. After a short introduction in the visitor’s centre, gamers will be able to wander around the open world with the creatures surrounding them in VR. Players will also be able to collect the creatures by capturing them using in-game items and weapons or by solving puzzles. Players of ARK: Survival Evolved will be able to import creatures they have already tamed into ARK Park, giving hardcore ARK: Survival Evolved players a great excuse to splurge on a VR headset.
ARK Park is set to launch in 2017.
