Wildcard dropped the bomb at The Game Awards Show and announced ARK 2 with a cinematic trailer. The well-known character Santiago is embodied in the trailer by Vin Diesel.
- According to initial rumors, Wildcard has announced ARK 2
- Vin Diesel plays the main protagonist
- No release yet, launching on PC and exclusively on Xbox
- Wildcard also announces animation series for Helena’s story
This is the trailer: According to the developer, the cinematic trailer was created In-Engine and used game assets from ARK 2. We see the known NPC Santiago fighting a hostile clan of “mutants” – or orcs – and then withdrawing with his people in front of a T-Rex.
In a cave they encounter TEK technology and the name of the character played by Vin Diesel (Fast & Furious) appears. Santiago Da Costa – In the complicated ARK story, he is a member of the Federation’s armed forces from the future who, like everyone else, ended up in the ARK. He appeared for the first time in the stories of ARK in the addon Aberration and causes chaos there.
When does ARK 2 play? When ARK 2 will play is questionable. There is still no exact answer. Santiago could just appear in the cinematic trailer without much connection to the actual game.
But if Santiago plays a major role in ARK 2, the sequel takes place before the events of ARK: Survival Evolved. If Wildcard integrates a real story into the game, or even a single player mode, we can probably expect to replay the events of the ARK story. Even before the players get into the ARK.
