ARK Survival Evolved feature 2

Take a look at ARK: Survival Evolved’s The Island in Unreal Engine 5.1

A few days ago, Studio Wildcard tweeted an image that hinted at the first ARK coming to Unreal Engine 5. And, as you may have guessed, some artists decided to showcase what such a remaster/remake could look like.

The most promising of these fan remasters/remakes is the following one from Greg Coulthard. Greg has decided to bring to Unreal Engine 5.1 a portion of ARK’s The Island map. This map features also features a number of dinosaurs, and looks quite cool. And, to be honest, this perfectly shows what you can expect from an Unreal Engine 5.1 remaster of the first ARK game (if it ever happens).

Again, and apart from that tweet, we don’t have any additional details about ARK: Survival Evolved coming to UE5. For what it’s worth, the second ARK game will be using Unreal Engine 5.

Lastly, and speaking of Unreal Engine 5, we suggest downloading these other fan remakes. For instance, you can download a Superman UE5 Demo, a Halo 3: ODST Remake, and a Spider-Man UE 5 Demo. There is also a fan remake of Halo: Combat Evolved’s “Halo” level. And then we have The Lord of the Rings: Conquest Reimagined in Unreal Engine 5 and The Legend of Zelda Ocarina of Time in Unreal Engine 5.
