ARK: Scorched Earth (DLC)

Scorched Earth takes ARK: Survival Evolved players to an entirely new land, composed of six unique, desert themed biomes.

Stranded naked, dehydrated & starving in a vast desert, even the most seasoned ARK survivors must quickly find water, hunt for food, harvest, craft items, and build shelter to have any chance for survival. Littered with ruins, geysers, and intricate ancient cave systems, survivors will find a whole new frontier to explore and master. Use skills honed on ARK’s faraway Island to kill, tame, breed, and ride the fantastical new creatures that have evolved to survive the Desert’s ultra harsh conditions, including… DRAGONS! Among others, lead a caravan of the camel-like Morellatops, or rain fire down upon your enemies from the back of an elemental Wyvern. Just mind your step, or you might attract a Death Worm! Players can use whips, boomerangs, flamethrowers, chainsaws, and much more to defend themselves, or such things as tents, wells, wind turbines, and oil refineries to provide their bases with resources. When used creatively, these tools can open up whole new strategies for survival, self defense or epic tribal warfare. Does it protect a powerful weapon, a precious relic, or the mysteries of the ARK itself? Only survivors who posses the courage to confront this fearsome beast will learn the truth. Travel back and forth between the Island and the Desert to team up with hundreds of players across both worlds or play locally!

ARK: Scorched Earth Reviews:

8.6 Total Score
Very Good

After playing quite a lot of the standard ARK: Survival Evolved, this DLC gives you the same feeling of discovery and trying to figure out as the base game did when you first played it. New creatures to kill and tame, new gameplay mechanics, recipes, and a whole new map. It's a bit harder than the main game since there are very few, if any, "tame" areas for new characters . The Island and the new creatures are very cool looking and well done. If you've ever decided to build a base on a volcanic island or snow biome, you will love this expansion, as it retains the toughness of survival from those regions listed prior, and goes a long way more.
