Ark Survival: Evolved Will Test Your Survival Skills In New Tournament Mode

ARK Survival: Evolved’s “Survival of the Fittest” tournament mode brings fight-to-the-permadeath contest; that is designed to create completely new gameplay scenarios.

Specifically balanced for tournament competitions, the new mode puts contestants in a neutral battleground. Here, they can discuss pre-game strategize or let the others know how they are about to get their a** handed to them.

After the countdown ends, they are placed on the ARK in a circular formation around a cache of valuable items in the middle. Players will have the option to dash for the items and fight, or run and hide in the dark forest. A continually shrinking “ring of death” is going to force players together, meaning you won’t be able to hide for long.

Starting at 12 pm PST, Saturday, August 1, 2015, Wildcard’s Kayd Hendricks and Twitch’s Alex “Goldenboy” Mendez, will host a stream to debut the new mode. 35 Teams will compete in the ARK arena and the last tribe standing will take home $20,000, in addition to gaming gear from Logitech and Gunnar Optiks.

ARK has truly evolved survival, and has taken it to a new level with its immersive gameplay where player has to live through freezing nights, dynamic weather systems, dangerous wildlife, and potential enemies. The game is available to download on Steam.
