ARK: Survival Evolved opens with your created character stranded on the beach of a mysterious island. As you start to scavenge for tools, food, and safety it becomes clear that dinosaurs inhabit the island as well. These creatures both big and small can be tamed to do your bidding and getting bigger and stronger creatures is the primary allure of the game. The other humans present are allied with territorial tribes that often operate like prison gangs attacking anyone that isn’t one of their own. ARK is a thrilling place to be, but a harsh place to survive. Today, I tackled the demo to sink my teeth into some prehistoric action.
