UPDATE April 27: Ark: Survival Evolved Genesis Part 2 release date pushed to May.
Publisher and developer Studio Wildcard has revealed more details about Ark: Survival Evolved Genesis Part 2 and its release date, painting a clearer picture of when and what players can expect from the conclusion of the survival game's biggest expansion yet.
Ark: Survival Evolved Genesis Part 2's development was impacted by the ongoing pandemic, requiring the developer to transition to remote work which "comes with specific challenges," This led to Ark Survival Evolved Genesis Part 2 receiving a release window of March 2021.
As of February 27, 2021, Ark Survival Evolved: Genesis Part 2's release date has been pushed to May 26, which is when the game arrives on PC, Xbox, PlayStation, and Stadia.
Set on a colony ship traveling through deep space, the expansion will revolve around HLN-A and Sir Edmund Rockwell settling the score.
As the villainous Rockwell – voiced by David Tennant – puts it, players will explore a world in which "the boundary between the biological and technological has been all but erased," so they'll encounter a handful of new creatures, some of which have mutated or entirely left flesh behind.
You'll be able to possess enemies using brain-controlling Noglins, navigate the colony ship using the new Hoversail and manage your base remotely using security cameras.
While waiting for Genesis Part 2's release date to come around, you can already tip into Ark: Survival Evolved and its Genesis Part 1 expansion, both of which are now live on PC, Xbox One and PS4.
Studio Wildcard is also working on Ark 2 which will feature Vin Diesel as protagonist. The sequel is aiming for a 2022 release.
