This is as close as possible to a new “Turok”.

Vin Diesel in Ark 2

If you were playing Ark: Survival Evolved since the single / multiplayer game launched in 2017, you probably knew what was going on in the first reveal trailer for the PC title sequel. The rest of us are trying to catch up. Luckily we have some time to do it!

ARK II aims to continue the survival-focused action-adventure game that finds players trying to live and thrive in a dangerous world filled with dinosaurs, natural disasters, and even other humans trying to antagonize your every step. Leading the charge in the new game will be none other than Fast & Furious is Riddick franchise star, vin Diesel.

ARK II, with Diesel as Santiago Da Costa, will be released for next-generation platforms in 2022. Unlike other games (which will remain unnamed), Studio Wildcard is marketing ARK II specifically for next-generation systems, even if by 2022, that will be the new standard. It remains to be seen what exactly Da Costa’s story is, or how the recently announced animated series will play out in the sequel. Stay tuned and, in the meantime, check out some teasers from the people behind ARK!

ARK II propels players into a brutal new world of primitive survival against both beast and man, facing the ever-present threats of hyper-realistic intelligent dinosaurs, aggressive alien wildlife, and the exotic environments of an otherworldly planet. Survivors will continue ARK’s dramatic story of humanity’s evolution, spanning eons, in this next-generation sandbox survival experience!
