The gameplay of the Ark: Survival Evolved is primarily focused on surviving on a fictional land called ARK filled with prehistoric creatures. The game follows an open-world navigation mechanics.
The players can roam around the land either on foot or by riding a dinosaur or any other prehistoric creatures available at their disposal. The game can either be played from a first-person or a third-person perspective.

The game developers later on added some of their original signature creatures and also some mythical creatures such as phoenix and wyvern to the game rank.
In multiplayer mode, the players can join together and form “tribes.” These tribes can protect or assist each other in attacking other tribe base or defending their base as well. The maximum allotted number of tribe members varies with different servers.
There is (of course) the PvP game mode that allows players to fight each other. However, there is also a PvE game mode where the players are immune to each other’s attacks or simply barred from attacking each other’s base. Other than that the other available game mods on multiplayer mode are:
- PvX mod (specific for mobile platform)
- Survival of the fittest
