ARK players made a mess because of remaster they need to pay
by | VIEW 142
As some of you may know, news broke last weekend that ARK: Survival Evolved was going to get a remaster in Unreal Engine 5. It is possible that despite all of this, the upgrade from the original game to the remaster might be viewed positively, but Studio Wildcard has announced that you will have to pay for the upgrade.
It should be noted that ARK Remaster will need to be purchased separately and will be significantly more expensive than the original game. The fact that the official servers for the original ARK Survival Evolved will be shut down with the launch of the remaster has led some players to believe that they are being forced to purchase the game once more.
As if that was not enough, the remaster will not include the expansions that players already own, so they will also have to buy those again once they own the remastered version. Affected the most were PlayStation 5 players who will be able to buy the remastered ARK and will be able to do so at a price of 40 euros.
PC and Xbox owners will be able to purchase ARK at the price of 50 euros, but they will also be able to buy access to ARK 2, which has been postponed until the end of 2024. There is no doubt that the creators of ARK have created a big problem for themselves and the players, and have not waited long for the reaction of the fans of the game.
This resulted in ARK receiving hundreds of negative reviews on Steam as a result of all this. ARK is a game played by a lot of people who are fans of the game, but are just unable to accept Wildcard Studios' new moves.
As a result, other players are advised not to purchase the game anymore, since it will be shut down by the official servers of the game as soon as possible. As a matter of fact, there are no notices anywhere on Steam that the original Survival Evolved will be discontinued at some point in the future.
