Dinosaur murder romp, ARK: Survival Evolved to get "imminent release" on Xbox One

We knew the prehistoric-fantasy survival smash and sometime Steam chart-topper, ARK, would be coming to consoles in June, but it seems that its debut on Xbox One could come a fair bit sooner than that. In a Steam update (as spotted by VG24/7), developer Studio Wildcard explained that it was preparing for the "imminent release" of the game on Xbox One.

As revealed at Gamescom, ARK will be a part of the Xbox Game Preview early access programme, so we'll almost certainly be seeing the game turning up as a technically unfinished version (although, given the number of changes to the PC version in recent months, it will probably appear more fully-formed than that implies).

If you want a reminder of what it is that makes ARK quite so interesting, here's a video where the developers attached the bottom of a house to a Quetzalcoatlus' back and stuck a working ballista on top:
