ARK: Survival of the Fittest is the add on to the popular open world survival game Ark: Survival Evolved. Although it does not follow on from the conventional ARK game play as it follows a hunger games style. The DLC grew in popularity and many competitive players switched to this game mode. This was because a lot of small companies were offering price money for winning teams. This sparked a huge e-gaming community that soon started to follow the game. This was short lived as many players decided to go back to the original or move on to other game.
The game itself is set on a server with special rules. This includes quicker levelling system and an accelerated game pace. Such as faster harvesting, taming and building which all happen at a quicker rate. This makes it much shorter and games are often only a couple of hours long at most. One of the most notable features of this mode is the permanent death system. Once players die they are no longer eligible to play in the competition. They can still spectate the game if they wish by spawning as a ghost that will then watch the game.
In regards to gameplay the game plays very much like the movie the hunger games. All players on Ark: Survival of the Fittest start in the middle of the island on pillars with a large loot crate in the middle. Players can choose to rush the loot crate in hope of grabbing some awesome gear. Or they can decide to run off into the wilderness and hope they find their own gear. Both have pros and cons. Rushing the loot crate often ends in a lot of casualties as players fight each other for the gear. Although running off into the forest is also risky as you are never sure that you will find anything else. It usually depends on a players preference and skill level. If you survive the initial 5 minutes you will be racing against time to level up and tame beasts to claim victory. But watch your back because you will always have other players trying to kill you.
Attractively ARK: Survival of the Fittest offers a few different game modes including free for all, which is an all out brawl, no teams and only one chance at winning first place. The second game mode is 2 player tribes, which means you can take on the game in pairs. Although this means you will need to eliminate both players in a tribe to remove the team. The final game mode is a 4 player tribes mode, which has the same rules as the 2 players but you have more team members. Again this can make the game more difficult or easy depending on the skill of your team.
If you would like to set up a tournament it’s worth renting ARK: Survival of the Fittest server hosting. This will allow you to customise your game world and access the config files.
The game has received mixed reviews from the Steam community, with an even amount of positive and negative comments. The main issue that many gamer’s seem to keep bringing up in the reviews is the lack of development currently being done on this DLC. Many people point out that the developers are spending all their time and money on the core game. In theory this is the wisest choice for the company, as this is where they are making their money are getting the most sales, hence the focus.
The second biggest issue that has arisen in both negative and positive reviews is the cost of the DLC, with many players believing that Survival of the Fittest should be free to play. Many reviewers have commented that this will bring in more players from the core game, helping to strengthen the community. This is understandable and to be fair we were shocked that people had to pay for this extra content; because of the initial cost of the base game.
