The Ark Survival Evolved player count on Xbox One has already surpassed the daily player count on PC. The dinosaur-survival title launched worldwide into all regions of the Xbox Game Preview Program on December 16.

According Studio Wildcard’s Co-Founder And Co-Creative Director, Jesse Rapczak, the team is amazed by the amount of new players experiencing the large-scale multiplayer survival game, since its release on the Xbox One a few weeks ago.

Rapczak adds that in under a week, the game has been downloaded over 1 million times, and “Survivors had lasted a combined 200,000 real-life days against the dinosaurs and perils of the island, including other players!”

Ark Survival Evolved and its future

At the moment of writing, Survival Evolved is available to PC and Xbox One players via early access.  A full release of the game is scheduled for all platforms within 7 months. PC players have been able to enjoy an early release of Ark since June of this year.

Until the game’s final release, fans can expect community feedback to be integrated into the Xbox One version of the game with regular updates about every two weeks. “This will eventually include highly-demanded features like split screen support, gamepad customization, UI improvements, tweaks to current game modes, balancing improvements and all the new content that is going into the PC version. That’s awesome considering there is already three times as much content in the game today compared to the PC launch 7 months ago”, adds Rapczak.

A few weeks ago, we posted a comparison video between the PC and Xbox One version of Ark Survival Evolved. Check out that post right here.

In his post on the Xbox Wire blog, Rapczak also thanked Microsoft, Xbox, and the ID@Xbox teams  for their support.

Last but not least, the creative director shares some insight in the first new creature that will be introduced in Ark in a few weeks. You can see a piece of art from the new creature down below.
