After launching first on PC in early access, Studio Wildcard’s Ark: Survival Ascended will release on November 14th for Xbox Series X/S. It’s launch with cross-platform play and new servers with Xbox-only servers also included.
As you’ve probably noticed, the PS5 version isn’t launching on the same day. The developer notes that it’s finalizing a more precise date with Sony, but the current plan is November end. It’s optimistic about sharing a date “very soon.” Fortunately, the PS5 version will also support cross-platform play with Steam and Xbox at launch.
Studio Wildcard also revealed that there would be a new set of official servers for each game mode – PvP, PvE and Small Tribes – which will have boosted rates. This will allow console players to catch up to those on PC (with the rates synchronizing by mid-December). Stay tuned for more details on the rollout of Ark: Survival Ascended on consoles in the coming weeks.
