Developed by Studio Wildcard, Ark: Survival Evolved is an open-world dinosaur survival game coming to Steam Early Access on June 2, with a full launch on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC planned for early 2016. As the PS Blog reveals, Project Morpheus support will also be included.

Further described as a large-scale, multiplayer, first-person survival game where “players fight for every breath amongst the most ferocious creatures to ever walk the earth,” Ark: Survival Evolved is powered by Unreal Engine 4 and blends multiplayer co-operation and competition.

Waking up naked and starving on the beach of a mysterious island called ARK, surrounded by other confused humans, you must hunt, harvest, craft, research technology, and build shelters to protect against the harsh weather, dangerous wildlife, and potential enemies.

The description continues by talking about how you can tame 60 dinosaurs and more:

Use cunning strategy and tactics to tame and ride the many dinosaurs and other primeval creatures roaming the dynamic, persistent ecosystems across land, sea, air, and even underground. Build your character’s strengths and gain items, skills, and pet creatures using in-depth role-playing systems. Start a tribe with hundreds of other players to survive and dominate competing tribes… and ultimately discover the ARK’s true purpose.

Tame one of 60 amazing dinosaurs and other prehistoric beasts, including gargantuan creatures on a scale never before seen in video games! Fly a Pterodactyl squadron over the snow-capped mountains, race through the deep jungle with your pack of trained Raptors, tromp through a fortified enemy base along a convoy of gigantic Brontosaurus, or chase down prey on the back of a raging T-Rex.

Players will quickly learn that dinosaurs aren’t the only dangerous creatures on the island. Other players are organizing rebel tribes to accumulate resources, experience, re-spawn points, and to construct sprawling villages and cities, with technology spanning the primitive stone-age to the modern electric-powered era and beyond. And they will fight to destroy anything they see as a threat.
