Traditionally, if we talk about “survival” in the world of video games, titles belonging to the genre of “survival horror” and, more specifically, the Resident Evil series from Capcom come to mind. However, in the sector of digital entertainment, the concept of “survival” has much more to offer, apart from the already-too-much zombies and other spawn mutants. A clear example of this is found in the title that concerns us: ARK Survival Evolved Extinction.
ARK Survival Evolved Extinction offers us an adventure of survival out of the ordinary which has been a breath of fresh air in the panorama of the last few years. The game puts us in the skin of a man (or a woman) naked, without food, and at the mercy of the weather, in a wild environment. From the first minutes, we are already forced to fight for survival, not only to seek shelter and food that lead us to the mouth, but also to avoid the fierce creatures that populate this idyllic but dangerous virtual world.
Dinosaurs play a very important role in this adventure. In addition to embodying the greatest dangers that we can find in our journey, they can also be bred and tamed for use as a mount or as animals of prey to confront and hunt down other creatures. The breeding and training of these “monstrous pets” is very well implemented in the development of ARK Survival Evolved Extinction. Depending on our expertise and dedication, we can reach the different levels and skills for the dinosaurs that educate and even buy equipment and armor to turn them into more powerful beasts.
The virtual universe created for the ARK Survival Evolved Extinction also deserves a special mention as it is an open world game (like Grand Theft Auto), set in a primitive time in which the vegetation, creatures, and dangers of all kinds are constant.
And how could it be otherwise?
Since we talk about “survival,” the search for food, shelter and raw materials also plays a very important role in the game. And so, we will grow food, cut trees to get wood and make fire, find shelters that we challenge during times of cold or even devote ourselves to the exploitation of metals to make weapons and other utensils. The possibilities offered by ARK Survival Evolved Extinction are almost endless!
In short, we find ourselves with a title so complete it manages to surprise the player from the first minute with a proposal as challenging as it is fun. If you want to test your survival instinct, do not hesitate to download ARK Survival Evolved Extinction on your computer. You will be thrilled!
