Wildcard, the developers of ARK Survival Evolved have this week confirmed that the game will be launched on the Xbox One later this month, launching on the console on December 16th, 2015.
This comes after the game originally launched on the PC, where it was downloaded over 2 million times on Valve’s Steam store, both in its early access title and when it officially launched.
When it makes its way to the Xbox One it will be available via the Xbox Game Preview Program for $34.99.

Jess Rapczak, co-founder and co-creative director at Studio Wildcard explains more about the Xbox One version :
Our goal is to bring all this chaotic and creative spontaneous fun – the tribe building, dino-breeding, dino-combat, the weapons-, armor-, food-, and recipe-crafting, and more – to Xbox One fans with no compromises.
Through all of this, we hope to help Microsoft build out Xbox Game Preview while giving Xbox One gamers something totally new and different than the standard updated version of old franchises. Gamers want new experiences on their consoles, and we feel that ARK, which is one of the few dinosaur games on the market, and one of the only, if not the only true multiplayer survival games on console, will bring that fresh gaming experience that helps define this generation.
