  • A Recap on the TwitchGaming Weekly Show

    Today we stopped by The Weekly TwitchGaming show and talked about ARK and Genesis 2 development.  We didn't want you to miss out on all the action, so here's everything you may have missed:

    Some old friends will be making a reappearance in Genesis Part 2 -- here's an early look at our GEN-R variants, which include new versions of many previous expansions' creatures!

    When a normal bola isn't doing the job, in comes the net projectile.  Using the net projectile with a harpoon, you'll be able to net larger creatures.

    Secure your base in Genesis Part 2 with the Remote Camera Security System. Issue commands, view, and communicate all from a remote location. You can even use them to spy-on and communicate with your enemies!

    The silhouette might read as a wyvern but these mechanical sentries are nothing of the sort.  Be careful when you're out exploring, Voidwyrm does not take well to interlopers!

    If you're going on a siege, you'll definitely want something that can leave an impact.  The Jar of Pitch allows you do just that by leaving an impact area covered in flames.

    you really gonna argue non copyrighted fiction?

    YEEESSS 🤩

    lol

    No, but really, they used to research things a lot and that was sooo nice, that it just seems weird by now. Like the Cherufe thing, that was so cool, but it should be an evil humanoid so they called it Magmasaur instead.

    It's like putting wings on a crocodile and calling it a Water Phoenix 🤔 they don't do that. They are careful with their lore.

    I love love the new content, but still gonna call it a Tek Wyvern. I will be taming Tek Wyverns. I will sell Tek Wyverns. I will have a Tek base full of Tek Wyverns at roof!!!

    What Xbox consoles will Ark II work on? Just Xbox Series X/S? Or will it work on Xbox One and Xbox One X/S? Also, is the Voidwyrm rideable? 

    Yes they will be rideable.

    New gigas and special extinction creature variants? Sure we are excited :D

    So many folks getting caught up on the specifics of draconic terms and species. I'm as much a fan of dragons as the next person, but we must remember they are fantasy creatures.

    If I may wax encyclopedic, though...: "Wyrm" is a term that is often used to refer to any draconic creature. Even a full-on dragon could be referred to as a "wyrm" if one were to speak in a general enough manner. (Kind of like saying "man" or "mankind" to refer to the human race as a whole.) As for the term "wyrm" referring specifically to a two-legged serpent, you're half right. A two-legged serpent is specifically called a "lindwyrm" or a "land-wyrm".

    Granted, I would be reluctantly willing to extend my definition of "dragon" to include any winged, reptilian creature with a breath weapon (especially since, in a good deal of mainstream fantasy such as D&D, wyverns do not have a breath attack). So the wyverns of Scorched, as well as the "dragons" in the Elder Scrolls universe or the "dragons" from Game of Thrones or the film adaptation of The Hobbit, could potentially be considered actual dragons.

    Sorry for the text wall. I've been more or less obsessed with all things draconic since I was a kid. lol

    Some juicy content, incendiary jar was just what i was looking for those raids that just needed a little extra spice. Also those variants are looking fresh. As for the rest of it, can't wait.

    They already have the pointless oil jars, they will probably be just a reskin of those useless things.

     

    I'm wondering if they are going to knee cap gen2 just like they did to Abberation, I sure hope so to have another beautiful looking Dlc but you can only use a small percentage of tames.

    In that VoidWyrm photo i noticed that OSD (Far left) does that mean we have Orbital Supply Drops? If so sweet i love those (yes i use to spawn then to destroy players bases as an admin before they were unable to be spawned on other maps)

    The mana ban is one of the few bright spots about gen 1.

    Would make me so happy if they extended it to gen 2.

    Honestly I'm a little upset allo's are getting another variant, so many others that could have gotten another variant instead. Hopefully though more then 14 dinos will have a Gen-R version & I hope the Gen-R reapers are tame-able. If not it while be upsetting to say the least but I'll deal with it. Otherwise I'm really looking forward to the armor/weapons and that awesome looking voidwyrm XD .

    Maybe the colony ship is where the OSDs came from?

    That is true, and also a fair argument. That's also the precise logic that had me using the word "reluctantly" in my original comment. 😛 But I agree with you.

    Agree. I love Reapers, and R ones looks even cooler. I'm  very excited for Noglin and Astrodelphis

    I totally get that. word associations are important for communication, hell i am fairly certain most people will call them tek wyverns, that's what i called them when i pointed them out to my wife.

    me: hey babe they adding tek wyverns that look like they gonna breathe lasers

    her: don't lightning wyverns already breathe lasers?

    me: well technically yeah, but these probably won't be tameable

    her: *starts to do inventory to make sure we can build them when they are released*

    me: *let's her remain optimistic*
