Dinosaur Battle Royale Ark Survival of the Fittest is Now on Steam

Battle royale games were still quite specialized when we first looked at Ark Survival of the Fittest back in 2016; they were the domain of customized Arma servers and altered game modes. Six years later, a prototype version of Studio Wildcard’s genre-defining game with several quality-of-life and other enhancements is now readily available on Steam.

The basic idea in Survival of the Fittest is the same as ever: be the last survivor(s) in a contracting play area that is full of crafting materials and wild dinosaurs. It’s unique amongst battle royales, though, in that you’re actually able to assemble an army of dinosaurs to fight alongside you in your quest for the Jurassic version of a chicken dinner.

The trailer here runs through some of the new features you’ll find in the Steam prototype:

Looting, dinosaur taming, and armour have been overhauled; there’s a new dynamic minimap; the UI/UX have been improved and now includes a modern smart ‘ping’ system; and you can even enter an RTS mode for controlling your dino army once you have enough of them cruising with you across the island.

Dinosaurs you tame can be converted into tokens, which you can in turn use to quick-heal other dinosaurs if they get into a nasty scrape – and let’s be honest with ourselves here, ‘nasty scrapes’ are kind of the whole point of dinosaurs.

It looks like a lot of goofy, toothy fun, and you can jump in now – or check out any of the other great dinosaur games available on PC in these waning days of 2022.
