It’s another week of New Releases. Everything’s hitting the shelves August 8th so make sure to drop in your local gaming store and pick yourself a game or two!
Ark: Survival Evolved WAS supposed to be leaving it’s Early-Access status this week but last week the developers delayed the game until the end of August. In addition to the delay don’t expect it to keep its previous $29.99 price. Back in July the studio behind Ark: Survival Evolved, Studio Wildcard, hiked the price up to $59.99, more than DOUBLING the initial cost of the game. Safe to say, this didn’t bode well for many.
According to the Developer the studio was forced into a price hike by retailers who insisted the game should cost the same in those shops as it does online. It still feels very fishy to gamers. Many gamers and fellow devs believe the studio behind the game has just grown greedy. Other devs have especially expressed their feelings that the studios explanation feels like nothing more than a lie because the developers are purposely overcharging for the game, knowing full-well it is not worth the price.
We did a full article on the delay, it’s causes and reaction by fans on our website so make sure to check it out if you want the full story.
At the end of day, it’s all up to gamers if they want to buy the game still. The new release date for Ark : Survival Evolved will supposedly be released August 29th now, for the PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
Moving on, we’ll be seeing Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice for the PS4 and PC.
