Snail Games announced that its forthcoming VR tourist attraction, "ARK Park," is slated to launch in 2017. The game will support the three major VR platforms: PlayStation VR, HTC Vive and the Oculus Rift.

What To Expect In "ARK Park"

The vision for the game, according to Snail Games, is to provide a similar "Jurassic Park" experience. "ARK Park" is a relaxing experience in a lush world complete with prehistoric creatures and features numerous "primal environments.

"ARK Park" will present scenes of snow-covered mountains, rainforests and swamp areas, each having its own range of creatures. Moreover, Snail Games is bringing more than 100 of its humongous beasts from "ARK: Survival Evolved" to get the best out of the "Jurassic Park" experience.

"ARK Park" Elements

Players will be taken to a series of journeys and see different kinds of dinosaurs and other creatures, like the Dodo bird we saw in the trailer, which you can see below. In "ARK Park," exploring can be done on foot, in a vehicle, and you can even ride a dinosaur in some cases. You can even customize what the dinos look like. Excursions, as the game calls it, can be done multiplayer or solo, reports GameSpot.

"Gene Cubes" are also ready to be collected in "ARK Park." They are spread out across the map and will add creatures to player's libraries. "Determined visitors will need to use a combination of puzzle-solving logic, action skills, exploration, and careful resource management to bag the most prized animals," Snail Games stated in a post on the PlayStation Blog.

Snail Games hasn't announced a concrete release date for "ARK Park," although the developer noted on a 2017 release window for all three major platforms. Whether you own a PSVR, HTC Vive or an Oculus Rift, a dinosaur-filled world is ready for you to explore come 2017.
