ARK: Survival Evolved Early Access Beta Gameplay Preview

I'm playing the early access beta of ARK: Survival Evolved, a survival game by Studio Wildcard.

The game currently features both online and offline play; players can join tribes to share pets and a common respawn point. Thirty extinct creatures, from dinosaurs to dodo birds, roam the landscape (more than seventy are planned for release); animals can be captured and domesticated (or simply hunted for food), then used to carry goods, provide transportation, or attack rivals. Resources such as wood and stone are collected and used to craft weapons, clothing, tools, and building components; experience points can be used to unlock a large assortment of new items to construct. Food and water concerns must also be taken care of. ARK: Survival Evolved is scheduled for release in the summer of 2016.
