Studio Wildcard is hard at work to deliver new content and experience for Ark Survival Evolved. Now, after a 14 month development cycle, Studio Wildcard has released the first expansion for the game, Ark Survival Evolved Scorched Earth.

According to the developers Ark Survival Evolved Scorched Earth expansion “is an completely new and different experience from The Island. Stranded naked, dehydrated and starving on a fiery, drought-ridden desert world, Survivors must immediately seek water, hunt for food, harvest new flora, craft new items, and build shelter from the extreme heat”.

The expansion features seven unique desert themed biomes, namely: dunes, high desert, mountains, canyons, badlands, oasis and the dangerous dragon trench. Each biome is filled with unique “resources & ecosystems, and littered with ruins, geysers, and intricate ancient cave systems”.

The desert’s biomes are filled with fantastical new creatures, many of which can be tamed. Lead a caravan of the camel-like Morellatops, or rain fire down on your enemies from the back of a Wyvern. Just mind your step in the vast desert, or you might attract a Death Worm!

Also the easiest resource that can found on the island, is the most valuable in the desert, that resource is water. Now players must adapt to the desert in order to survive “in a harsh desert environment depleted of water resources”.

Discover over 50 new items to craft including new outfits and structures to protect from the heat, and new tools to help survive in the harsh environment. Carry temporary shelter with you using tents, employ whips, boomerangs and flamethrowers for ‘defense’, wind turbines to generate clean power, and water wells & oil refineries to harvest scarce resources, among many new mechanics!

Studio Wldcard has also released some beautiful in-game screenshots for Ark Survival Evolved Scorched Earth, check them out below.

Also Ark Survival Evolved Scorched Earth expansion introduces a new feature called “The Gateway”. This allows players to travel back and forth from the Scorched Earth map to the ARK: Survival Evolved main game, “taking with them newly collected tools, weapons, and their newly tamed creatures to impress their friends and dazzle their combatants”.

Ark Survival Evolved Scorched Earth is available for PC and Xbox One for £14.99 through steam early access on PC and Xbox One Game Preview for Microsoft’s console.
