ARK: Survival Evolved has been one of the most successful Early Access games ever released, with Studio Wildcard, the developer behind the game, releasing a new game mode for the Unreal Engine 4-powered game.




The new 'Survival of the Fittest' mode adds an entire new way of playing the game, with a new last man standing, fighting to the (perma)death, which will create an entire new dynamic for ARK: Survival Evolved. The new game mode will be balanced for tournament games, with contestants starting their game in a neutral staging area (think Hunger Games), where they can talk before the game begins, strategize, or just trash talk the competition.


After the countdown, they will descend from the sky into the ARK in a circular formation through beams of light. Studio Wildcard adds: "There is a cache of valuable items in the center - do survivors dash for the goods and fight it out, do they run into the forest and hide, or do they freeze up from the sheer terror of death? A continually shrinking "ring of death" forces contestants ever closer together over time. The game is on!"
