Looks like Wildcard announced that Ark will be available for the Nintendo Switch this fall! How do you guys feel about it? I have a soft spot for handhelds, but I highly doubt there would be cross-play like Xbox and PC has. Might still get it though since it's so portable and can be easily docked to the TV/Monitor once I get home.

QuoteI assume you are talking about pixark the new version of ark styled like minecraft its also coming to playstation and xbox as well
Edit:  According to the information i was able to pull up about the Pixark game is that it will be released for xbox game preview on March 27 2018 and the game itself is set to be released sometimes in 2018 on PC, box, PS4 and Nintendo Switch.  It doesnt look like it will have crossplay abilities but just like the regular version it will have all the same features that Ark Survival has as well as a multiplayer feature.

...

No, I'm talking about the regular version of Ark we currently play. I believe it was just announced today: https://www.gamespot.com/ ... ved-co/1100-6457572/

I'm interested to see what it can do on the Switch. Ark struggles to run on Xbox at times and the Switch isn't exactly a powerhouse. Not knocking the Switch, I love mine.

Pixark is something I've been keeping my eye on, looks like a game me and my boy could play together, he loves Minecraft and I love Ark so this seems perfect . I've been reading though that you can't keep tames for more than three days, which is putting me off a bit. Hopefully we can turn this off if we're playing offline split screen.
Comes out this weekend on game preview

It piqued my interest cause I'm planning on buying a switch in the near future as a graduation present for myself. That and Super Smash Bros is coming out this year lol. But I get what you mean, handhelds don't have a lot of processing power compared to consoles/PCs. It would be nice though to play on a big screen and be able to take it along with me if I need to go somewhere.

I don't see the Nintendo Switch being able to support Ark completely like PC and the other consoles do. I feel like it may be just single player and split screen only? If not though, good luck with that lol. I can't even imagine the lag if it had Official Dedicated and Player dedicated servers running on it.

Interesting though. It could be nice to be able to play Ark hand held.
Although I don't own a Nintendo Switch and can't really see myself purchasing one.

Apparently, according to the Abstraction Games CEO, ""Switch is not as powerful as a PS4 or Xbox One. Everyone knows that. But the difference isn't as big as the general perception would have you believe." 

There's more detail provided from the interview on wh, but instead of copy/pasting the whole thing here's the link (scroll a little past a third of the way down): https://www.gamesindustry ... ed-working-on-switch

Looks like there's still a lot of things to develop, but if they pull this off I'm going to be ecstatic!

That is very surprising! I would have never though in a million years the Nintendo Switch was that powerful! Well it will most definitely be very interesting to see this pull through.
