Wildcard Games has just released a brand-new game mode for its dinosaur-survival game Ark: Survival Evolved. Called Survival of the Fittest, the new mode is much like the game in movie “The Hunger Games”. Only one team can reign supreme in this fight-to-the-death mode.
Participants start in a circular formation, with a cache of loot available in the middle of the map. You can make a dash for the loot or run into the forest and hide. No matter what strategy you take, the game’s outer boundaries slowly close in on contestants in a “Ring of Death” that ultimately brings them together to fight.
Survival of the Fittest will debut in a livestreamed tournament at 12:00 pm PT on August 1st, where 35 teams will compete for a $20,000 grand prize, plus plenty of gear from Logitech and Gunnar Optiks. All the viewers are able to vote for special events to challenge players, including crazy weather, a dinosaur attack, and supply drops.
