ARK: Survival Evolved Sells 1 Million Copies on PS4

ARK: Survival Evolved Sells 1 Million Copies on PS4

The survival adventure game was the best-selling game on PlayStation Network in January.

Studio Wildcard has announced a new milestone for its survival adventure game ARK: Survival Evolved. In addition to a new sci-fi style update for the Xbox One and PlayStation versions of the game, the studio says that ARK has sold over 1 million copies on PS4 since its launch on December 6, 2016. ARK also happened to be the best-selling game on the PlayStation Network for December 2016 and January 2017.

To celebrate the milestone, Studio Wildcard is offering an ARK: Survival Evolved bundle for 20 percent off on the PlayStation Store. The Survivor's Pack is an up-to-date version of the game, including the Scorched Earth expansion.

"We want to say a big thank you to all the fans who have supported us as we march toward completion of this epic game," said Studio Wildcard co-founder Jeremy Stieglitz. "The community is the key part of what makes ARK an exciting, dynamic experience and keeps survivors coming back for more!"

It's worth noting that ARK: Survival Evolved is in Early Access on PC and Game Preview on Xbox One. PlayStation lacks an equivalent program, hence the full launch. Studio Wildcard already came under fire for offering a paid expansion for a game that was still in Early Access.
