ARK: Survival Evolved is free to play this weekend on Steam, you can download it now

Studio Wildcard has announced that ARK: Survival Evolved is free to play this weekend on Steam. PC gamers can download the game right now and start playing, and as always all of your progress will be transferred to the game once and if you buy it.

ARK: Survival Evolved aimed to bring a new level of depth to the survival genre with a unique blend of emergent multiplayer cooperation and competition. In this game, players awake naked and starving on the beach of a mysterious island among a herd of other confused humans and must explore the vast island of ARK to survive.

The game left its Early Access phase in August 2017 and since then Studio Wildcard has been constantly releasing new paid content for it. Its latest expansion, ARK: Extinction, was released yesterday.

Those interested can download the game from Steam, and you can also read our PC Performance Analysis here!
