Ark Survival Evolved is now an Xbox Play Anywhere title, offering cross-saves and shared Achievements across Xbox One and Windows PC.
Moreover, Ark supports cross-play between the two platforms, allowing for players to cooperate or compete across systems.

Clamber up walls & glide through the air on the back of a camouflaging chameleon-like ‘Rock Drake’, keep the dark at bay with one of four friendly ‘Lantern Pets’, or grab and toss multiple creatures simultaneously with a massive ‘Cave Crustacean’, or — if you are brave enough – allow the horrific “Reaper Queen” to impregnate you, and spawn a vicious male Reaper alien lifeform you can tame and control.
Craft 50+ Unique Items: Use cave-climbing picks, gliding wingsuits, and ziplines to traverse this new ARK. Learn advanced engrams to dominate the harsh environment, protect yourself with hazmat outfits, charge lanterns, flashbangs, batteries, glowsticks, railguns and much more.

Gear-up to take on the horrifying threat lurking within the deepest depths of Aberration…
