ARK: Survival Evolved free on Steam – How to claim, Minimum PC Requirements, and more


For all the survival fans, you will get ARK Survival Evolved free on Steam. Learn how to get it and the minimum requirements of the game. 

In this game, you are trapped on a mysterious island called ARK, naked, freezing, and starving, and you have to hunt, harvest resources, craft items, grow crops, search for technologies, and build shelters to survive. Your cunning and resources will be needed to kill or tame the large dinosaurs and other creatures roaming the land, and you will have to team up with hundreds of other players or take advantage of them in order to survive, dominate, and escape.

A feral creature can be captured and tamed using a challenging capture-and-affinity process in which it is first knocked unconscious, then weakened with appropriate food, before it is rehabilitated. You can train your tames to follow your commands once they’re tamed. Tame animals can level up and can consume food, as well as carry items back to your settlement, and even ride and be controlled directly. They also carry equipment such as armor, can carry prey back to your settlement depending on their strength, and can carry larger objects such as chests.
