VIDEO: David Tennant Voices Villain In New ARK: Survival Evolved Expansion Pack

David Tennant will provide the voice of the villainous Sir Edmund Rockwell in ARK: Genesis Part 2, the next Expansion Pack for the open-world multi-platform game, ARK: Survival Evolved. Developers Studio Wildcard have released a trailer today for the hotly anticipated update which will available from March 2021. 

ARK: Survival Evolved finds the player stranded on the shores of a mysterious island called ARK, needing to hunt, cultivate, build and research technologies to survive. The player also needs to use skills and cunning to kill or tame or breed the leviathan dinosaurs and other primeval creatures roaming the land, and team up with or prey on hundreds of other players to survive, dominate... and escape! ARK: Genesis shifts the challenge within a virtual simulation featuring exotic worlds unlike anything you’ve seen before. ARK: Genesis represents a new, story-oriented beginning in ARK’s epic saga of survival where skill determines success. Everything is turned up to the highest setting: the challenges, the dangers…and the vast rewards. Only the toughest and smartest survivors will pass the simulation’s many tests. Will you be one of them?

ARK: Genesis Part 2 introduces a vast contiguous world filled with strange new biomes, story missions, and exotic creatures! The final confrontation between the spritely HLN-A and the villainous Sir Edmund Rockwell occurs on a gigantic colony ship traveling through deep space. Players will need to make use of all their ARK experience to succeed. 

ARK's largest Expansion Pack yet has game-changing additions for every kind of Survivor: whether it's taking possession of enemies via brain-controlling "Noglin" creatures, zooming around doing radical tricks on the skateboard-like Hoversail, or managing and viewing your base remotely with security cameras, among tons of other new items and creatures! 

This expansion pack will also new voiceover talent to the ARK universe with David Tennant (Doctor Who, Good Omens) playing the villainous Sir Edmund Rockwell, and Madeleine Madden (The Wheel of Time, Picnic at Hanging Rock, Dora and the Lost City of Gold) taking on the in-game robotic AI companion HLN-A/Helena Walker. 

But even with HLN-A's help, will your powerful skills, gear, and tames be sufficient to put a stop to Rockwell's demented plans once and for all? We're about to find out because The End is Near!

The downloadable expansion pack will be available via Steam, Xbox One and PS4
