The original Ark: Survival Evolved has found a healthy following on PC and Xbox One, and a PS4 version is set to arrive in June. However, developer Studio Wildcard is eager to see the franchise expand, which led to the PC release of Ark: Survival of the Fittest, a competitive online arena game built with eSports competition in mind, and that PC version is already in full swing. The spin-off project is now steering towards release for PS4 on July 19.

The new PS4 release is promised to have the same content as the PC release, but also add a new Practice mode, so that players can become familiar with gameplay prior to diving into the competitive action. The PS4 version will also support a full suite of eSports rankings, matchmaking, leaderboards, and monthly cash prizes to further cement its potential as an eSports contender. 

Ark: Survival of the Fittest borrows the humans-meet-dinosaur vibe of Survival Evolved, but sets the action in an ever-shrinking arena that pushes up to 72 survivors into ever closer conflict with one another. Within a given match, players form up into tribes, tame dinosaurs and other creatures, and aim to take each other out. 

Check out the trailer for the new PS4 version below.
