Ark Survival Evolved DLC will launch while game is still in Steam early access

“Scorched Earth is an entirely new map, composed of seven unique, desert themed biomes – dunes, high desert, mountains, canyons, badlands, oasis and the ever-dangerous dragon trench – each with their own aesthetics, resources & ecosystems, and littered with ruins, geysers, and intricate ancient cave systems.

The desert’s biomes are filled with fantastical new creatures, many of which can be tamed. Lead a caravan of the camel-like Morellatops, or rain fire down on your enemies from the back of a Wyvern. Just mind your step in the vast desert, or you might attract a Death Worm!”

Ark Survival Evolved DLC features brand new areas to explore and different kind of dinosaurs to hunt and subdue. There’s a moment in the game where you can take down a dinosaur using a single boomerang hit. There will be 50 new items to craft. Players can carry a temporary shelter with them using tents. You can herd dinosaurs using whips. You can even take advantage of the windy environment and generate renewable energy using wind turbines. Water-well and oil refineries will also be present in the game. Scorched Earth will be $20. Buy the main game for a discount on Steam during the summer sale.
