In addition to appearing in Ark II, it is also an EP
Not only does Vin Diesel star in Ark II - a wonderfully disconcerting reveal from The Game Awards last week - he's also executive producer of the sequel, and he's apparently a huge Ark fan in general.
According to Doug Kennedy, CEO of Studio Wildcard, Diesel is an "accomplished gamer who has played thousands of hours of Ark: Survival Evolved." I will never, under any circumstances, unlearn this fact.
"I'm having a lot of fun playing Ark and I'm also very excited to join the team at Studio Wildcard to develop the story both in-game and in the new animated series," Diesel said in a statement. hurry. Kennedy added that "he understands the game intimately and provides direct feedback on the development process."
Shedding a little more light on Diesel's character, the actor plays Santiago, "a hero protagonist made complete" - although it's worth noting that Ark II is still going to be an "online multiplayer sandbox ".
I'm curious to see how it all turns out. Ark II is far from Diesel's first appearance in a major video game (and I'm sure he's crossed the thousand hour mark in other games as well), but the role is a head turner.
Ark II will be PC and “Xbox Series X/S console launch exclusive” in 2022.
