    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

    large.Aber2.png

    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 LOVING aberration! 

    But did I miss S+ integration on all official servers? I thought that was happening at the same time? 

    It was never stated that it was going to happen at the same time.

    I know they never specified a date for S+, but I would have assumed, since they were streaming the sneak peak of aberration with S+, that S+ was coming out with aberration.

    That sneak peak was kinda misleading if S+ is still missing.

    You know what they say about assuming! Getting your hopes up on an assumption is a recipe for a big disappointment.

    lol true that!

    but you gotta admit, that did look like they would launch at the same time. but who knows, maybe it will be implemented at the same time as play anywhere, fingers crossed! :)

    Once again you screw us wildcard. 20$ for dlc and you don't even get the skins unless you  buy the season pass. Hungry for money and don't care about the community that's how wildcard is and looks like that's how they always will be

    From what I understand, those of us that bought the Survivors Pack before release only got the Scorched map. To receive Aberration and the next DLC we will have to buy the Explorer's Edition (45$) or Maps individually (20$/each). I was also under this false assumption (hopefully someone can correct me).

     

    So my next question is of course, Where is the Love for PS4 and a price discount? All others get 30-35% off while we have the full price 45$ for the Explorer's Edition.

     

    If we already have the Scorched map, why would we spend 45 instead of buying the 2 maps for 20? Give us a reason or discount so that we can also get the Explorer's Edition and Skins.

    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?

    You are thinking of Ragnarok, with this enhancement. The island is like this and requires tools.

    Studio Wildcard have said that people who already own the Scorched Earth DLC will get discount off the season pass price.  I also own the Xbox version and got discount off plus the additional sale price.  I imagine it might be an issue with the Playstation Store?  As I was told there should be an option to "Complete Your Season Pass" for people who already own Scorched.

    THANK YOU FOR NOT MAKING PEOPLE ASCEND! Really cool, but quite hard. I tamed a dodo, and began to build a house, then I saw a spino near it. I demolished, and, while trying to move, one of those crab-spider things grabbed and smashed my poor, glowing dodo. I died countless times, and MAYBE, knock on wood, my newest thatch shelter will last...

    Really cool though, and lots of stuff to find. I learned that gas geysers are not good to touch the hard way, I was hoping it would guench my thirst, or heal me or something...:$ Its a harsh world out there.:/

    Two questions

    1. Will there be Aberration Legacy servers for the PlayStation 4

    2. Will Aberration tames be transferable to other servers that aren't running Aberration maps, and, if so, can you have a tame from Aberration if you didn't buy the DLC?

    Thanks in advance!
