Ark: The Animated Series – First 6 Episodes released!

“Ark: The Animated Series” based on the survival game “Ark: Survival Evolved” is not suitable for children, despite the cartoon style. The first two episodes, each about 20 minutes long, contain a lot of violence and brutality. The series tells the prehistory of the game and is about a battle between humans and dinosaurs in a science fiction setting. The two main characters are forcibly separated from their daughter and have to fight for survival in a hostile environment full of dinosaurs and other primeval creatures. There are many scenes of violence, such as humans being eaten by dinosaurs, stabbed, or shot with arrows. The violence is not shown in detail, but is still intense. The series is aimed more at fans of the game who want to learn more about the background story. For children, however, the series is not suitable due to the high level of violence. On the streaming service Tubi, where the series is available, it is rated as “adult”. In summary, despite the animated style, “Ark: The Animated Series” contains a lot of violence and brutal scenes that make it unsuitable for children. It is aimed more at adult fans of the survival game who are interested in the backstory.

  • Wild:This feathered fella is so much bigger than the Yi species I knew in my day! Despite its aberrant size, Yi ling is still somehow light enough to cling to walls and it can even glide short distances. It’s light on its feet as well, able to dodge attacks on the run.
  • Domesticated:

    A tamed Yi makes for an excellent -- if precarious -- hunting mount. Some tribes use them as caravan scouts, others to torment enemy forces.

    I’ve seen Yi scarf up the weird mushrooms, congealed gas balls, and nameless creatures scurrying around down here. Who knows what effect a diet like that would have on its feathery weaponry? Watch what your Yi eats, and you just might learn to sharpen its fighting skills!

  • Known Information: I’m glad Yi seems to prefer prey smaller than itself, because it can eject a spray of barbed feathers at an unhappy target before darting in to rip them back out. Its unique firepower may expose Yi in the short term, but its protective plumage regrows fast.

The Survival of the Fittest – Launch – Prototype! ARK TSOTF

ARK: The Survival of the Fittest is a prototype spin-off of ARK: Survival Evolved that pits up to 60 players against each other in a fast-paced, action-packed survival battle to lead their dinosaur armies into battle in an epic showdown. ARK TSOTF is the only Battle Royale that focuses on large-scale confrontations between creatures and armies, combined with a unique real-time strategy overlay. By using tactics and strategy to assemble a fighting force of the most powerful prehistoric creatures in history, only one tribe will survive!

Form your tribe and fight in the ultimate dinosaur survival battle! The survivors begin their battle in a TEK-themed sky lobby to form a tribe, and are set for intense competition and fast-paced dino action. When the battle begins, they fly aboard a giant quetzal to an island before jumping off and gliding to their chosen starting area. Do the competitors pounce on the drops and fight it out? Do they run and hide in the jungle, looking for creatures to tame and quickly build up their dino army, or die at the hands of a pack of curious compys? Take advantage of the bird’s eye view mode that allows you to command and control your dinosaur army more effectively, own individual upgradeable creatures directly, and give orders to your team as the ultimate strategist. This unique RTS-style experience is available in life and even after death! Avoid the ever-shrinking and dynamic “Ring of Death” that keeps participants closer and closer together over time, and become the last surviving tribe. The hunt is on!
