ARK 2 storyline

Suddenly awakened on a strange primal world filled with dinosaurs and humans struggling for dominance; you must piece together the history of how you arrived there, team-up with legendary heroes, and confront powerful dark forces seeking to control the fate of all life.


Ark 2 Gameplay

The action in ARK 2 will be third-person only, so you’ll be able to watch your character undertake a variety of traversal activities, from basics like mantling and sliding to more advanced free-climbing, parkour, and swinging.

Combat in the game emphasises on player skill in melee encounters, and you’ll have to learn to dodge and block as well as making use of your character’s special attacks. Hostile ‘Aratai’ hunt & attack you riding their own tamed creatures, as they seek to drive human interlopers from their world. Animals now track and hunt by sight, sound, and smell. Hide from predators with visual camouflage and environmental obstructions, and learn to mask your scent. Dynamic pathfinding enables creatures to intelligently manoeuvre around obstacles and player-built structures.

Item-crafting has also been given added depth for this follow-up, with a wealth of component combinations allowing for the creation of unique gear. Utilising different modules and materials in crafting will have both a functional and cosmetic impact on the finished item. With multiple options of resources found in unique regions of the world.

See foliage react convincingly to passing wildlife, water flow downstream around obstacles, volumetric storm clouds, localised weather systems, smoke and particles affected by physical forces, and much more. Fundamental advancement of lighting systems enables a more photorealistic day-night cycle, generating real-time ambient lighting & shadows within both natural and player-constructed environments. Natural and unnatural occurrences are always happening across the open game world, independent of your presence. Your choices in deciding whether to interact with these events will yield rewards or challenges.

Gain both experience points from gameplay, and knowledge points by accomplishing key objectives and overcoming unique challenges, to progress along a massive skill tree filled with new active abilities, perks, and passive benefits.
