    AVAILABLE NOW!

    large.Aber1.png

    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.

    large.Aber6.png

    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!

    large.Aber9.png

    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!

    large.Aber5.png

    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?

    large.1920x1080TiltedArt.png

    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!

    Best of luck conquering Aberration!

    Can we transfer our dinos to aberration map ?

    You can't transfer anything but your naked survivor. No dinos, items, structures, nada.

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

    Did you try checking on the PlayStation store for the "complete your seasons pass"? I believe its cheaper. I bought the seasons pass as I only had the base game but I recall seeing it there.

    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.

    Easiest way to find it would be to search ark, I have double checked and it is there.

    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

    So much hate? Was it mentioned that you will get the skins with the stand alone dlc?

    It's available for everywhere except North American Store.

    I found a post from Jat in September where he said they were working with Sony to try and get the issue resolved, but it looks like it still hasn't been sorted for North America.

    No, this doesn’t help. Several months ago WC stated the US PlayStation Store has a problem with the “Complete Your Season Pass” and I can guarantee they knew this was still a problem. You don’t launch a product not knowing the availability of it for people, especially where the issue was already known and you didn’t check. 

    I called PlayStation support and confirmed this issue is not resolved, I’ll have to either buy the Season Pass at full price and *ATTEMPT* to get a refund from PlayStation if they do get the issue fixed, or pay full price for Aberration. 

     

    WC—You knew this was an issue which is also why your link for the PSN Aberration pack isn’t the US site nor is there mention of the Complete Your Season Pass for PSN users. So we have to wait or give you more money. I’ll wait, if it’s not resolved I’ll move on to another game and I quite enjoy Ark. There’s more than one way to make this happen, like say...give a discount code for ya to enter in the PSN store OR a code to redeem Aberration if we have the funds in our account OR a check for Scorched Earth users and discount Aberration individually OR...several ways to do this, and it’s been unaddressed for months. This was a poor choice to not have addressed before launch, and leaving your PSN user base in the US in a bad spot. I’m going o go out on a limb here and say the US user base is pretty high, not just with PSN. Let’s get this addressed...somehow?

    Any news???  I'm dying to use my PC as a server and play from my Xbox if possible.  Plus, tired of 250 meter limit on console.  I would have preferred the devs add greater distance with the one X version than better graphics.

    Fair enough, I'm based in South Africa so I cannot speak on behalf of other countries.

    Great comment—so much to add about addressing a problem that has been known literally for months. Clearly my post was there to say, “Please give me a reason to walk away from this game.” and not “Please address a well known issue, that looks as if it was deliberately avoided, given I have a lot of time (and money) invested in this game.”

    For the record, there are three others in my family who are in the exact same boat (two of those I purchased for them) and the solution isn’t “just give WC the extra money”. It’s more along the lines of, I know we aren’t the only ones affected, it’s not been fixed in months, and someone at WC is paid to have these business conversations because it affects WC profits as well. Especially since WC already acknowledged the problem and that the issue is on Sony’s end. Not every gamer lacks intelligence, or business process, such as conversations that need to happen between WC and Sony to resolve this  

    I already did my part as a consumer to talk to Sony first and make sure the issue is still there, given PC, Xbox, and every other supported country has this working for PlayStation.

    However, I can’t thank you enough for the well thought out response about addressing the problem at hand. Good job.

    While this is marvelous, I'm still having issues with ragnarok. Specifically, I'm STILL unable to access the desert. When is that going to be fixed?

    Can't wait to buy the DLC as soon as there is a solution for Official PVE, any word on that? :/

    Totally agree, as soon as wild card fix all the glitches, rubber banding and  disconnection issues in all the other "malfunctioning"Arks I might consider forking out some hard earned myself.. As it is at the moment I'm already in a challenging environment playing on my present "Malfunctioning and broken Ark" server.... PMSL. More of the same  me thinks!!! You couldn't make it up!! Lol.

    Technically, Ragnarok is a MOD and not their baby first and foremost. I know they’ve adopted it due to its playability and high success. My only point is not that I don’t agree that it should not have focus in terms of priority, but rather that it may not be highest on the list. 

    I know they are taking feedback seriously based on complaints about New Content over addressing known issues, bugs, exploits, etc. I am sure they are going to kick it down a notch on content and work out some of the core issues with the game for awhile, or at least I hope so. They have the funding, now they need to invest that money back into the core product or they are going to start losing what player base they have. Hope you guys are reading because I’ve seen online petitions and plenty of complaints that have gone unanswered, and I know you folks at WC have seen these. Please put some time into the core product to address the major concerns out there today rather than anything for new expansions etc. Fix taming, clan ownership issues (leave your own clan and lose all right)Fix more bugs, open Ragnarok, fix more bugs, optimization’s, server stability, server quantity due to over population, more bugs...Fix’em. Please. 

    I do love your your game as many others do and you guys have so much going for you, but remember people only show up to the diner because the food is good AND the service is good, change one of those and you will see less customers. Less customers means less data for you to fix these issues. Take advantage of it. Fix it. Please.
