My wife and I love to play coop games. We are considering getting ARK: Survival evolved, as we have have heard that it has a couch co-op mode, but we are not 100% sure.
Can someone please confirm that it does in fact support a co-op mode on PS4?

Of course, me and my siblings play it all the time on split screen. First you will click host game, change any settings that you want, pick the place, then hit Create Ark. When you do that it will take a few moments to load up the game, then the first player will make his/her character once that happens then the second player can join and make there character.
Note: When the first person is making their character it will have the exact location you want to go on the right side.
There is a local co-op option for two players. Source
Information gleaned from comments:
In PvE mode, Ark: Survival Evolved is very much co-op based.
The gameplay is kinda like Minecraft meets first person shooter but with dinosaurs. It relies heavily on taming & breeding dinosaurs to ease chores and improve your quality of life, but also on crafting and base building.
