    ARK at Gamescom! First-look at Upcoming Content!

    ARK Official Launch Trailer!

    For those of you who missed us this morning on the Twitch at Gamescom livestream, we just premiered the official launch trailer for ARK: Survival Evolved! Watch it below!

    The past two years have been one heck of a journey for all of us. Millions of ARK players worldwide have built gigantic bases, captured and trained armies of dinosaurs, crafted armories full of weapons and eaten billions of pounds of berries. With your help, we are days away from releasing the full ARK: Survival Evolved game to the world!
     
    Come August 29th we'll be entering the next phase of our journey and exit early access. Players who have been with us throughout this early access program and were excited with the launch of each update have even more reason to be excited post-launch! ARK will continue to grow with new content at launch and beyond as we continue to have a behemoth amount of additional gameplay, creatures, and story elements in the works. The adventure has truly only just begun!

    With every Explorer Note you've discovered on the Island a piece of the story has come along with it. Every artifact, every apex drops, every boss battle, it has all been leading up to this moment. Now it's time to understand the bigger picture and begin to discover why every Survivor wakes up on the beach with a diamond shaped implant in their arm.

    Are you ready for what's in store? Will you be strong enough to take on the challenges ahead? Do you, your tribe, and your army have what it takes to reach Ascension? Only time will tell...

    The launch trailer also features the first in-game footage for the two newest critters to the Island, the playful Otter and the fiery Phoenix.

    This furry little Otter makes a cozy companion that can ride around on your shoulders and can help retrieve silica pearls for you!

    The flaming Phoenix bursts into fire with the heat of the desert. Operating at impossible temperatures, this legendary flyer can cook resources just by holding them. Perhaps it could even be ridden, if somehow one could acquire gear fireproof enough to withstand the flames blazing across its feathers.

    Lastly, we get our first look at the Tek Shield and Tek Sword in action! The sword is capable of a dash-charge attack and has armor piercing capability, while the shield can reflect incoming projectiles and bullets, and can completely stop splash damage!

    Their plan is to wipe all legacy servers. That's why they're stopping customer support. Rampant cheating and griefing's going to help drive people off. They're also going to continue to shut down servers after this first pass as well.

    I sure can feel the excitement! I am so excited for what else the people at Wildcard have planned to stick it to their player base!

    Ark survival evolved launch strategy !

    Go to a gaming conference (or what ever gamescom is) and sell your super buggy game to unaware gamers.

    Hours later announce to everyone that the very people who invested money to help you get where you are today are getting the double finger. 

    First 80% of servers get shut down creating a 4 days delay for a lot of players to move their stuff or lose everything. 

    Then, they also give another finger to those remaining by shutting the support for ''Legacy'' servers. 

    Actually, since you still get retroactive bug fixes, content updates, optimizations, and the like, you are still being supported pretty throughly. It's just support tickets that you cannot file. Frankly, I think this is the best move for Wildcard to make so that they can focus on expanding their support team and providing better service to the new servers. The Legacy servers would simply have been a fruitless time-sink.

    Man this game has EVOLVED! (pun intended) over these last 2 years and I'm quite curious as to what that odd sentry robot alien...thing was in the trailer but it was interesting to get a glimpse at how the Otter and Phoenix look in-game and i am really looking forward to getting them once they get added and i definitely cant wait to see what the upcoming DLC's will be

    They are Bionic Skins. Other creatures may get Tek Saddles in the future though. Hopefully with more diverse TEK than just Plasma Cannons, we'll see.

    Man the place where the dunkleosteus hologram was. I think thats the place where they made ARK's creatures. And i think i even have proof. The panel on the left has a DNA helix but helix is empty. The creature on every ark are geneticly modified if that is the case, you put different types DNA in to the empty helix and walla you have a geneticly modified Dunkleosteus. I just Hope i am right

    So cool to see this game grow since day one.

    BUT The Island really needs a visual makeover to be honest. Ragnarok with all its versatility, detail and realism is the true star map at the moment. I would not mind if you wipe the whole map and re-do it because The Island has become boring and unspectactular. The player model itself will hopefully also get a makeover and realistic flowing animations.

    Thanks Wildcard, you do amazing work!

    Congrats Wildcard. You may not be a perfect company, but even the haters right now are only hating cause they love what you made. You may not be the best at PR and some of your decisions are questionable, but you are a talented bunch of people who are wonderful at making content and keeping the code together to make the game run.

    Ark is still one of, if not the most favorite game in Steam when played under the right conditions, and I will recommend it to all my friends.

    Drake says

    Wonder who's found the secret hidden in the launch trailer hmm

    My guess is the hologram pic of Earth, is the secret showing that Ascension is actually your trip back home. After being stranded all this time. 

    Just a guess but very possible right?
