  • ARK: Genesis Part 2 is Live!

    ARK: Genesis Part 2 completes the eons-spanning story of ARK: Survival Evolved! Everything that your tribe has built, tamed, and fought for has led to this final challenge. With your faithful artificial companion HLN-A by your side, you’ve emerged from the Genesis simulation to find yourself aboard a gigantic starship being overtaken by a familiar threat from the distant past.

    In Genesis Part 2, you’ll explore a vast new world teeming with strange biomes and exotic creatures, while engaging in story-oriented missions that test your mettle, ingenuity, and survival skills. Wielding an array of powerful new tames, items, weapons, and structures, you’ll journey from idyllic fields through twilit phantasmagoric realms, all the way into a hellish heart of darkness. Thousands of years and trillions of miles away from where your story began, you’ll challenge series-villain Rockwell in a final confrontation to determine the fate of humanity. The future is in your hands, Survivor -- one last time!

    A holographic guide, HLN-A, offers a wide array of engaging new story-oriented missions at varying difficulty levels, as you build strength to confront Rockwell in a final battle for the ages. Completing missions earns you new map-wide bonuses and Hexagons, which you can spend for extra resources, additional Engram Points, TEK items, travel between environments, and more. Discover Explorer Notes and environmental cues along the way to learn even more about the history of the ARK saga.

    In ARK: Genesis 2, you’ll emerge from the simulation into a gargantuan starship filled with unique biomes, including beautiful elysian fields, an exotic twilight realm of highly evolved lifeforms, the depths of outer-space, and even the innards of the ever-expanding Rockwell himself. Whether it’s sentient alien plants, Rockwell’s digestive fluids, or asteroids warping in from intergalactic space travel, each biome presents unique hazards, but also opportunities to acquire new resources and creatures -- including the powerful new ‘Mutagen’ that enables you to further evolve your existing tames!

    Throughout the vast expanses of Genesis Part 2’s world, you’ll find the brain-controlling Noglins, elegant high-tech Stryders, the cuddly mobile-nursery Maewing, and even the laser-shooting, bomb-blasting, barrel-rolling Astrodelphis starfighter -- among other fantastical new creatures and evolved R-Variants of old favorites! 

    You’ll need all the help you can tame, as both Genesis expansions present you with challenging new bosses and minibosses that will take all of your skills to conquer.

    As you brave the many dangers of this new world, you’ll gain access to powerful new tools to aid you. You’ll learn how to place remote cameras, pull off tricks with a floating skateboard-like Hoversail, take care of your eggs with the high-tech Incubator, shoot arrows made of pure energy with the Tek Bow, even engage in a Real Time Strategy command mode within the new Exo-Mek --- and far, far more!

    ARK: Genesis Part 2 concludes the epic saga of ARK: Survival Evolved -- the ultimate battle between the freedom to evolve, versus the oppression of controlling life’s creation. Which side wins out is up to you, Survivor. Your skills, your tames, your weapons and your builds -- everything that you’ve accomplished is put to the test here, as the future of humanity hangs in the balance!

    I’m not at all surprised by the issues I’ve read down through in the comments.  Classic WC, same song and dance that we’ve seen over the last 6 years.  I caved and bought the genesis seasons pass this morning and now I’m wondering if it was 30 bucks just wasted.  I logged into the official server where my main base is and saw that they only added 2 gen 2 servers for crossplay?????  Seriously WC, what stupid logic was that???  It’s about as idiotic as having 1 server on crossplay for the island, aberration, scorched earth, Ragnarok and the center maps. The biggest most hyped up expansion to date and you pull your classic BS.  Then talking with one of my friends on that server they said that game chat was broke (conversed over Xbox messaging), and also told me about only 2 gen 2 servers.  You KNOW that whenever you release new DLCs the servers are going to get flooded with people wanting to play em and you STILL do it, WHY???  My buddy also told me that both gen 2 maps are pillared to hell already, and also at 75/70 server pop 20 hours out of 24.  If you’re going to stick the screws to us at least do it with an apology and a drink first, by implementing these things to PVE at least:

    1- Enable a capped movement speed to flyers on official 

    2- Remove the transfer timers (you say you have a handle on cheaters now, that’s why they were implemented in the first place).

    3- allow the transfer of element shards (at least)

    4- Enable PERMANENT 2X BREEDING AND MATURATION ( you have permanently doubled taming and harvesting TWICE).

    5- STOP BREAKING SOMETHING THE GAME WITH EVERY SINGLE UPDATE

    There are other things that really need to be implemented but that’s just my top 5.  Other than that, genesis looks awesome, probably just going to learn engrams and stay off the gen 2 servers until more are added or things calm down after the first month.

    I main on OC crossplay Val 1176 and that cluster. I'm in love with Ark, been full time playing since I started 3 months ago (I'm on med leave so I got time haha) I managed to get into a big tribe and thats helped me along heaps so ive already done everything that's worth doing on the 4 maps we have.  Why don't we get any of the new genisis maps or even crystelle isles? We have been building our server with new bobs in the hopes of getting at least one map added but yeah no luck. 

    All tribe members have done updates (we all did all nighters for gen 2 release) and we still didn't get any new map, still just our 'played to death already' maps. Honestly that whole server will die if it doesn't get something new hapoening. theres too many high level people and 1000s of hours of peoples work put into these maps too so we don't want to abandon that but we also desperately want new maps

    Great update but I was only able to play for about an hour before I got kicked off and the server has been full ever since. Have been waiting in a que for over 3 hours to join back and I have no idea what’s going on cant you just increase server count to 80 or even 90 people with how popular this is going to be only half the people will be able to play or they will give up

    New Genesis 2 DLC...NO thanks!  The engrams look cool....but as a player who stayed on primitive legacy official until they cancelled them.....this game is less a dinosaur survival and some space game....just not for me.

     

    I am surprised any legacy servers still exist....I finally moved to new official when my legacy server was migrated .....again....lol.

    Raising the population cap isn’t a good idea.  The servers can’t handle the 70 it’s at now.  They never could even during legacy when server pop cap was like 50.  This is a problem WITH EVERY SINGLE DLC DROP.  This has happened since the center was released, even before then when it was just the island.  When these dlcs drop they need to add MORE servers to launch day to handle the flood of players logging into the new map.  I play on the na crossplay cluster and we only got 2 gen 2 servers on launch.  Same with the EU cluster, meanwhile I believe there’s like 6 Valguero servers or somethin.  It’s a saddening incompetence that punishes the entire community.

     It would be nice if wild card would have enough servers for everybody that paid for the content

    Genesis 2 is super fun, but all the PVE official servers are full. There was an increase for a while and it seemed like 130 people could get on, but now they are all capped at 70. Not sure why you would turn that off on the weekend when you still have too few servers and they are all always full 🙄

    Launch a new map first few hours not everything works (trikes don't collect berries but wood and thatch) ping is through the roof (255) then to top it off  go to log in this morning server says 60/70 players  attempt to log in and get server full message. The thing of it is i love the game but the way Wildcard has decided to just do whatever they want without giving two-S**ts about its player base has really had me questioning why i enjoy the game so much and why i continue to throw my hard earned at it. Sadly they will probably be doing the same thing with Ark 2 which at this point i will not be a part of.

    Servers have always been an issue with this game fix it already. Over the last five years you think an attempt would have been made but nope instead lets keep adding new content to a very busted game. Seriously thinking of uninstalling this waste of time and money and finally putting it behind me which i should have done long ago.

    Suggestion, can you please make like 5 logins for each server limited to 15 minutes so some of us of can at least get to our characters to transfer to something we CAN play?

    This update has a very bad bug when I try to host my dedicated server on Windows 10. The whole server menu is black and the game captures my mouse. Please fix this.

    Why is it that altough this map is dependend on people being able to go trough the space in the middle of the map, but the devs still make it so that you can build turret towers blocking every way in...
