The Epic Games Store is continuing its juggernaut of free games with this week’s edition. From now through June 18th, fans of dino-themed survival titles with tons of content can grab the base edition of ARK: Survival Evolved completely free of charge. Ordinarily, the base game would set players back $50 so this is a terrific deal. Claim it on the Epic Games Store and keep it forever. Those looking for even more dino-action can also look into add-ons including the Ragnarok, Center, Crystal Isles, and Valguero expansion maps as well as several season pack offers.
“As a man or woman stranded naked, freezing and starving on the shores of a mysterious island called ARK, you must hunt, harvest resources, craft items, grow crops, research technologies, and build shelters to withstand the elements. Use your cunning and resources to kill or tame & breed the leviathan dinosaurs and other primeval creatures roaming the land, and team up with or prey on hundreds of other players to survive, dominate… and escape!”
