ARK: Ultimate Survivor Edition is still set to launch for Switch sometime in September 2022, and today we’ve gotten new details on some big-name voice actors who’ll be lending their talents to the game.
ARK: Ultimate Survivor Edition has new story cut-scenes bookending each ARK map, and they’ll feature actors Madeleine Madden (The Wheel of Time) and David Tennant (Doctor Who) as they reprise their respective roles as Helena Walker and Sir Edmund Rockwell. All of Helena’s and Rockwell’s Dossiers and Explorer Notes will also be voiced by the actors, as will survivors’ confrontation versus Rockwell on ARK Aberration. Madden will also voice the cheery robot-AI guide HLN-A in the “Young Explorers Mode” that will lead players through ARK in a low-pressure, kid-friendly, dino-fact-filled adventure.
Existing owners of ARK: Survival Evolved on Switch will receive a free update to the game with all progress and Save data maintained.
Finally, Studio Wildcard has announced that they’ll be showing off the first gameplay of ARK: Ultimate Survivor Edition on Switch in the very near future. The developer will be hosting a Twitch live-stream for the title on Monday, June 13th, 2022 at 4:30pm EDT.
