ARK: Survival Evolved Confirmed For Nintendo Switch, Coming Later This Year

Hori Nintendo Switch Joy Con with Dpad

Ark: Survival Evolved may not be the most demanding game out there, but on the Switch it will definitely need to be properly optimized.

During today's Epic Games "State of Unreal" keynote at the Game Developers Conference, the studio confirmed that the game would be coming to Nintendo's platform sometime this fall in both digital and retail form. The dinosaurs are continuing to run rampant through the video game scene, and they've set their sights on the Nintendo Switch next.

This time, it'll be Abstraction Games handling the porting duties.

Automatic pay rises ditched in £4.2 billion NHS deal
A "controversial proposal to force staff to give up a day's holiday in exchange for a rise has been dropped", says The Times . It brings to an end seven years of pay freezes and today has been recommended by 14 health unions, although not the GMB.

The game will include "the complete contents and features of the original game; from the massive and mysterious ARK island, to the more than 100 prehistoric- and fantasy-inspired creatures such as the T-Rex, Giganotosaurus, Rock Drake and Reaper". On top of fighting for survival, you can also tame and breed the dinosaurs you face, as well as build structures for you and your online friends. ARK: Survival Evolved is also available for Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC. You can play the game as a solo experience or team up with other players online. This means you can tame an army of fast-moving Velociraptors that can help you move across the island quickly, or ride on the back of the huge Tyrannosaurus Rex, using it lay siege to your enemies' bases. At the same time, however, some of the decisions Wildcard made with the direction of the game led to outcry from those very same fans, so ARK has had a turbulent existence thus far.

Do you think the Nintendo Switch is a good fit for the game?
