Ark 2 is gearing up to be one of the biggest releases of 2023, and will redefine the survival game genre in the same way as its predecessor. Whether you're looking for a new PVP thrill, or just looking to survive in a stunning environment, this is the game for you.
Rumours have been circulating about which platform will get the new game first, and if it might be exclusive. Here's everything you need to know about if and when it will arrive on PS5, and how to get your hands on it as soon as possible.
Is Ark 2 Coming to PS5?
The Ark sequel is almost certainly coming to PS5, but this will be after a period of exclusivity on Xbox Series S. Ark is launching as a timed exclusive, which means that only Xbox Series S players will be able to play it on launch, and likely for some time after.
It's highly likely that the game will arrive on PS5 at some point, but this will be later in 2023. This does mean that once PlayStation players get the chance to drop in, most of the bugs and gameplay issues will have been fixed, and the game will run much more smoothly.
Whether you're a PVP buff, or just love the intricate survival gameplay, we expect everyone to get a chance to play Ark 2.
Will Ark 2 be on PS4?
Unfortunately, it is unlikely we'll see the game release for last-gen consoles, whether on Xbox or PlayStation. No release date for Xbox One has been announced, which would indicate that there are no plans to, given the Xbox exclusive release.
This makes it even more unlikely we'll see Ark 2 arrive on PS4, although it hasn't been specifically ruled out. Hopefully, events and updates will continue for the original game once the sequel arrives, as they have become more sporadic during development.
