This game was released on August 29, 2017 and is no longer available to pre-order. Any incentives that were offered are listed below.

ARK: Survival Evolved is an open-world survival game developed by Studio Wildcard. The player is stranded on an island filled with dinosaurs and other prehistoric species, and they must craft weapons, acquire food, and build shelter to survive. The dinosaurs can be tamed and used as mounts, including flying and underwater species. The game has both single-player and multiplayer modes with private and official servers, the latter of which include large scale PvP battles.

The preview version of ARK: Survival Evolved has been out on Steam and other platforms for some time, and the game is now approaching a full release, including boxed versions and premium editions sold at retail.
