Ark Park shows off impressive VR dino-watching in first gameplay footage

I don’t know about you and your feelings on this, but I personally wouldn’t go within a thousand kilometres of an actual Jurassic Park. The movie franchise, while still one of my favourites, led to way more terrifying nightmares than I care to admit. But maybe, just maybe, I’d be cool with a virtual tour of a park filled with giant death lizards. Which is what Ark Park aims to be.
Currently in development by Snail Games, Ark Park is a VR offshoot of Ark: Survival Evolved, and is billed as a “multiplayer exploration experience that has been designed from the ground up to harness the most immersive VR theme park available on PC”.
“ARK Park is an immersive VR experience that brings to life a world where living, breathing dinosaurs are still roaming the earth,” says the trailer’s description. “Players embark on an exciting tour of this ancient time, interacting [with] and witnessing hundreds of dinosaurs up-close and personal.”
The game is slated for release later this year and will be playable on Oculus Rift, HTC Vive and PSVR.
