Snail Games have announced the voxel-based, sandbox survival game, PixARK will be coming to Early Access via Steam and Xbox Games Preview in March.
Set in the same world as ARK: Survival Evolved, PixARK has been given a definite Minecraftian look, with the aim of introducing a younger audience to the dinosaur-infested environments. The game is expected to receive an ESRB Everyone 10+ rating in North America and a PEGI 12 rating in Europe.
Features will include the following:
“With PixARK, we’ve taken the action and excitement that older players know and love in ARK to a new direction in order to introduce that world to an entirely different audience,” said Peter Kang, director of live operations and business development, Snail Games. “PixARK is a fun, colourful game that introduces players of all ages to ARK while adding creative building modes and a clever pick-up-and-play experience.”
PixARK will get a full release later in 2018 on PC, Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and Switch.
