    Survivors will find themselves waking up on a derelict, malfunctioning ARK with an elaborate underground biome system, where they will face exotic new challenges unlike anything before: extreme radioactive sunlight and environmental hazards, ziplines, wingsuits, climbing gear, cave dwellings, charge-batteries, and far more, along with a stable of extraordinary new creatures await within the mysterious depths. But beware the ‘Nameless’: unrelenting, Element-infused humanoids which have evolved into vicious light-hating monstrosities! You’ll uncover the ultimate secrets of the ARKs, and discover what the future holds in store for those strong and clever enough to survive!

    AN ARK GONE AWRY

    large.Aber8.png

    Aberration places survivors on a damaged ARK: its internal atmosphere has leaked away, resulting in a harsh surface with intense radiation, and a plethora of lush biomes underground. With the maintenance systems of this ARK malfunctioning, the many hazards, creatures, and nature of the environment present a thrilling new world to explore and master.

    TAME NEW CREATURES

    large.Aber4.png

    The intense radiation of Aberration has led to incredible genetic mutations, resulting in new creatures with amazing abilities! Among others, clamber up walls & glide through the air on the back of a camouflaging chameleon-like ‘Rock Drake’, keep the dark at bay with a friendly ‘Lantern Pug’, grab and toss multiple creatures simultaneously with a massive ‘Cave Crustacean’, or -- if you are talented enough to tame one -- command the vile ‘Nameless Queen’ to impregnate your foes with a horrifying reproductive chest-burster!

    OVER 50 NEW ITEMS

    New tools are on-hand to survive in the world of Aberration, while opening up many possibilities for new competitive and cooperative scenarios. Traverse the ARK using cave-climbing picks, gliding wingsuits, and ziplines. Learn advanced engrams to dominate the harsh environment, protect yourself with hazmat outfits, charge lanterns, batteries, glowsticks, railguns and much more. Thrive by gathering new resources, using fishing baskets, gas collectors, fortify your home within the caverns using cliff structures, and much more!

    CONQUER NEW CHALLENGES

    large.Aber10.png

    Earthquakes, radiation exposure, gas leaks, and Element chambers are among the many hazards that survivors will learn to grapple with Aberration’s varied biomes, both aboveground and below the surface. But among the greatest challenges on this ruined ARK is the hierarchy of unrelenting Nameless, requiring constant vigilance & Charge Energy to defend against!

    large.Aber7.png

    And in the deepest depths of Aberration, their terrifying -- yet somehow familiar -- master awaits… will YOU be among the survivors powerful enough to face him?

    Working on Aberration has been a challenging and exciting time for us here at Studio Wildcard. Aberration is filled with new world building techniques and new mechanics that have never been seen in ARK before. We hope that you all enjoy playing in this new expansion pack, and we look forward to seeing your reactions, posts, videos, streams, artwork, and feedback as you explore the world of Aberration.

    Thank you for your continued support, we would not be where we are today without you!

    I am having troubles reconnecting to servers continuous disconnects on xbox, also my xbox has crashed now 3 times.. It literally switched off... not sure how stable your build is but I think I'll go play another game.

    I think you geniuses got the areas labeled "easiest" to hardest, ass backwards.  Easiest areas have the most dangerous fking creatures, in large numbers.  You literally can't even spawn, because you die during your stupid respawn animation when you  look down at your damn arm.  Remove the animation.

    My tribemates and I trasferred our characters to an aberration server but can’t login to the server... now we can’t play on our characters at all because they are stuck on aberration. When will this be fixed?

    Also, why the hell are there so many rocks that on OTHER maps would be considered small enough to pick up, but instead it says you need an axe/hatchet to do so?

    What is going on? You had release at 11am its now 5pm and me and my friends have about 20 mins combined gameplay. Our characters are now stuck on aberration and we cant get them back to play on original servers. There is only one server on whole list that has more than 20 people. There invisible raptors and multicolored texture problems in single player? Is it even ready for release or are you still even now working on it? Its getting a little ridiculous Wildcard. Me and my friends are playing on Xbox if that helps or should I say trying to play?

    It’s great and all that you are excited about aberration but do you have any plans at all to actually finish Ragnarok or are you abandoning it completely ?  I mean the map was never finished it was full of bugs and glaring issues that were never addressed, and  now most of the servers are capped.   Pretty apparent wildcard could care less but yet so many are foolish enough to actually give them money for aberration.

    Wow. I had to delete all the other video games on my PC to fit this fat DLC. Why is it so big? I cant imagine trying to fit this game on my xbox. From the looks of other comments I may just have better luck checking back later, maybe in a month or two to see how this DLC is.

    Still no season pass discount for NA PS4 owners who purchased the game and SE soo long ago I see.

    Yea, I'm experiencing that too.  I was told earlier to go to the PS Store and there would be an option to "Complete Your Season Pass" but I'm not seeing it.

    What are the settings to get dinos max level to 150? I've already tried offset of 5.0 with overrides of 0,1, and 1.2857. None of which are working. Please help?

    Why is it that every time I try to download an update for this game, it forces me to redownload the entire game? (50+ gigs)

    on XBOX One theirs is an option which has in the Description forces Max Level to 150 but updating currently so can't get the real option name so just do some reading under advanced options.

    ah, yea I'm on PC. Ours is a bit more complicated than just a button unfortunately. I run another server with 150 cap, but I can't figure out the override and offset numbers for abberations.

    Figured it out, if anyone is looking for how to set dinos max lvl to 150 for PC. You change the Offset to 1, and the override to 5. (I know it's the opposite of what you would usually do, but just trust me).
