  • Community Crunch 140: Extinction Chronicles II, & ARKaeology Ending Tomorrow!

    Hey Survivors! Welcome to the latest edition of the Community Crunch! :Jerbhi:

    Extinction Chronicles II

    Ark_ExtinctionChronicles.png

    Tomorrow there will be a client and server side update that will bring Extinction Chronicles II to survivors on PC, Xbox, and PS4. 

    Leading up to the release of Extinction there will be monthly drops of Extinction-related Explorer Notes on The Island, Scorched Earth, and Aberration. Once collected these notes will unlock new Extinction-related skins!

    There will also be the appearance of more powerful Tek-themed Dinosaur variants within the ARKs each month. These Tek Dinos are permanent additions (meaning they will continue to spawn even after the event is over), with a new one beginning to appear each month. In Extinction Chronicles I we released three Explorer Notes, the Corrupted Helmet and the Tek Rex. Tomorrow we're excited to bring you three new Explorer Notes, the Corrupted Boots and a new Tek creature, the Tek Stego!

    In addition, special colored dinos will be populating the ARKs. You'll be able to find creatures sporting purple, black, grey, and dark blue for the next week beginning tomorrow. Be sure to take advantage of these special colors before they're extinct!

    Will we need to use a command to spawn the colored dinos on unofficial servers?

    Will the new servers be small tribes? and whether new servers will be opened for those who did not have time to start on existing ones.

    It doesn't, that's the issue, if you read the past two community crunches you would know that the one posted on July 2nd says they were adding a couple of new servers today when they did the server cluster update. Then last weeks community crunch said they weren't doing the server cluster thing, but there was no mention of the new servers, so why don't you make sure you know what you're talking about before you try to act like I'm the dumb one 😁

    Nice nice.... You destroyed the island forever and it'll never be the same. Mecha dinos spawning everywhere forever? Had you lost your mind? I would even understand event but forever?  You even making sick players who play on the island only with this tek crap. God I wish we had ever game like ARK but without this fantasy sci-fi crap...

    On private servers can we have this and arkeology active? I just love the color variety available by leaving all events active...

    I REALLY hope the Tek Dinos don't stick around on the already existing maps once Extinction is released.

    I suppose Tek Stegos will benefit pvp.
    Not sure how they will come in handy for PVE.

    They look amazing though i must say that.
    Make em harvest a lot more berries lol , so it has a purpose :P

    On another note, that s+ integration would be nice to have before Extinction.
    And when are resource spawns like metal and beaver dams gonna be unbuildable?

    There will be a command for it, but it won't show here... given the post.

    No Bionic Anky skin (even in devkit) = no go.

    ARK is fantasy sci-fi technically. If you hate that genre, you are free to leave for other games like Conan Exile. (And don't bother flaming me, I won't care)

    Each Month at least one type. We won't know what they would actually release even with the devkit hinting.

    I think only one event can be active at any point of time.

    They mentioned it stays forever, so most likely it won't get removed even after the DLC is released.

    People have used Stego as damage soaking for Aberration's boss... probably for other bosses as well.

    I'm really appreciated scorched Earth updates in last 2 patches.

    And also generator decaying should be removed.it has no tactical purposes in pvp.just making map annoying.

    Cool, no new creature from Extinction. And we get the tek stego, that is nothing more than a stego. Tek stego was aready available since more than a year thanks to bionic skins. Guess that next ones will be Tek Trike, Raptor, Quetz, Giga, Mosa, so nothing new (already available through skins) 

    Please give us REAL new content !
