Ark: Survival Evolved Genesis Part 2 Update Is Now Live

The final expansion for Ark is here alongside a new trailer.


A major update for Ark: Survival Evolved, the expansion Genesis Part 2, has finally arrived. Following a few delays, it's available now on all platforms, adding new worlds, mission-style content, creatures to contend with, craftable items, weapons, and more. You can check out a brand-new trailer showcasing the additions below.

Genesis Part 2 is the final expansion for Ark, as the developers look to move forward with development on the sequel Ark 2, which features Vin Diesel. Genesis Part 2 was originally announced in November of last year with a release window of March 2021 but has since been delayed multiple times. While the latest delay was only for a day, it came very last minute, since Studio Wildcard announced it on what was supposed to be launch day for the expansion.

Genesis Part 2 has been described as the biggest expansion to Ark since its launch, featuring new voice work from David Tennant (Doctor Who) and Madeleine Madden (The Wheel of Time) playing Sir Edmund Rockwell and the AI companion Helena Walker respectively. It also features a ton of new items and mechanics, like the Egg Incubation Device and the Exo-mek.

Ark: Survival Evolved's Genesis Part 2 expansion will be available on Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PS4, PS5, Steam, and the Epic Games Store on June 3 at 8 AM ET.
