  • Biome Update, The Center Contest and Xbox Patch 736!

    large.Redwoods.png

    Hey Survivors!

    Earlier this month in a Community Crunch we announced that later on we would be making some very large biome changes to The Island. Part of this change would be introducing a new zone, known as the Redwood Forest and also slightly expanding the size of the Snow Biome.

    This is a map you can use to help identify the areas where The Island will receive some changes and it’s makeover.

    The blue area represents the new size of the Snow Biome. The orange area represents the location of the new Redwood Biome and the green-area represents part of the Swamp that is also being turned into Redwood.

    Something we will always try to avoid is making drastic map changes as we know it can be unsettling for players to have to be concerned about relocating their base, however in some cases we have to go ahead and make those changes for the development of the game. We apologize if this does cause any inconvenience and we really hope you enjoy the upcoming biome changes!

    Whilst we prepare for launching the new biomes we said we’d be updating the in-game environment with 3D Markers to help indicate areas that will be undergoing change. These markers will be brought into the game on Wednesday and here’s what you can expect them to look like!

    That’ll give you an idea of whether you need to make any plans to move or not :)

    The Redwood biome looks amazing! I really hope it's eventually added into The Center.

    I assume the borders are green when you're inside the safe zone and red when outside, right?

    I'm a little bit confused by the borders. Surely anything outside the red is safe, so what is the need of the green borders? Wouldn't they be directly attached to the red borders? Which they don't seem to be in your images.

    Anyone able to clear this up?

    The green borders are actually just the other side of the red border, so that you know you're on the "safe" side -- otherwise it might not necessarily be obvious which side is which ;)

    Now I just feel silly :(

    Cheers for the answer though :)

    The redwood would be terrifying at night.imagine giant wooden spires all around you,stomping in the distance,and a roaring in the darkness.Then,at the moment you beleive your safe,a raptor charges in from the veil of black hell and rips out your eyes before tearing open your stomach and pulling out your intestines

    OMG! I can't wait more for this!! :D

    But i have a question! I know that one of the dinosaurs that living in redwoods is the moschops. And surely other existing dinosaur in ARK. But what dinosaur, appart from the moschops, we will see in the redwoods? (I say a dinosaur that appear only in that biome)

    Probably Thylacoleo, because it will have the ability to climb trees.

    Is it just my eyes fooling me or is there a baby T-Rex in the screenshot?

    Just huge Redwoods. They dwarf the trex.
