ARK: Survival Evolved and all of its massive Expansion Packs Scorched Earth, Aberration, Extinction, and Genesis Parts 1 & 2 are coming to the Nintendo Switch with hundreds of hours of content. The ARK: Ultimate Survival Edition will be available for $49.99 in stores and on the Nintendo eShop in September 2022, with the ARK base game and Scorched Earth Expansion Pack available right away, and following expansions arriving in two-month intervals.
