ARK: Survival Evolved will arrive on Xbox One on December 16.
The game will be made available on the Xbox Game Preview, priced $35 and while it will have some of the features of the PC version, users shouldn't expect it to be updated as frequently as the latter. On the bright side, updates will be released no further than two weeks apart, to try and keep parity across all versions.
If you purchase on December 16 then you'll get the full game for $35 (or UK equivalent) upon release, which is good news as the final version will cost a lot more. Game Preview purchases will get a skin pack with an unlockable bionic T-Rex skin, ARK Founder’s Hat skin, and ARK Founder’s Trophy.
The final version of ARK: Survival Evolved launches on PC, PS4 and Xbox One in June 2016.
