    What an intriguing discovery survivors, can you guess what this creature is?

    Jen Has Ascended!

    Jen has been with the ARK team since the beginning days of Early Access and has been critical in the overall development and success of ARK. At the end of the week, Jen will be ascending into a new opportunity - closing one chapter and beginning the next. We will always consider Jen a part of the Wildcard family and are appreciative of everything she’s done for the studio and our products over the years. Join us in wishing her luck wherever her future takes her. The Mother of Parasaur’s will truly be missed!

    Mod Community Updates and Developer Podcast

    Image result for ark modding contest

    In case you missed our separate announcement post last week, submissions for our latest mod contest opened this Friday, May 31st. Check out the current entries and don't miss out on your opportunity to win an ARK Collectors Edition by voting on your favorite entries. In other modding news, sponsorship applications close on Wednesday night 6-5.

    Since the mod contest is underway, we thought it might be a good idea to check on some of the modders who have transitioned into roles on the ARK development team.  Since launch, we've hired over 30 members from the community for various roles.  Hosting is Cedric, accompanied by Dave, Jackson, Zane, and Josh.  Listen to their experiences in the mod community and the different perspectives of becoming official mods and working for a game development company.  If this podcast format is something you'd like to see with other topics in the future, let us know!

    Note: The goal was originally to post a video format but we had video issues while filming and decided to use the audio and do a podcast format instead.

     

    The Great Migration!

    large.598e538d96ba6_FataL1ty-Patrol-8x.j

    Once again it is time to remove some of our lower population legacy ARK servers on PC, Xbox, and PS4 from our Official legacy network. Over time the ARK population has migrated from legacy to non-legacy and in its wake left many servers with low populations. Here is a quick breakdown on how this process works:

    Taking Down Low Pop Servers
    With calculations based on sustained player-count as well as popularity of game mode we will be removing lower population legacy servers, most of which retain a 0-4 player concurrent population. These servers will be taken offline on June 11th. Any existing server that is not considered a low pop server and is not taken down at this time will still exist on the Legacy network. Legacy servers will continue to remain on a separate cluster from the new cluster, which means you will not be able to transfer anything between Legacy servers and the new servers.

    Servers Up for Deletion
    Below is a complete list of the LEGACY servers that will be deleted come June 11th. You have from now until then to move your belongings onto a server not present on this list. Please click one of the links below. They are separated by platform (PC, Xbox, and PS4).

     

    How To Move Servers
    If you are unfamiliar with the process, you are able to upload your items, creatures, and player through the Obelisk terminal, supply drops, as well as the Tek Transmitter. Survivors are advised to use Cross-ARK immediately to relocate their belongings onto a server that is not included in our take-down list above.

    Server Saves of Deleted Servers
    We will make the save files available as soon as we can. We will host the PC files which anyone can download and then you are welcome to re-host the save file for your own use. We'll include a link to where you can download server saves in this post when they are available. Nitrado will also be able to provide the saves for use on Nitrado servers for console, as they have done in the past.

    Evolution Event!

    Survivors on all platforms will be receiving a special Evolution Event perk this weekend! It will be active from Friday the 7th of June at 1 PM EST until Monday the 10th of June at 3 PM EST. All Official Servers across each platform will be undergoing this evolutionary change which includes:

    • 2x Harvesting Rates
    • 2x Taming Rates
    • 2x EXP Rates

    That's it for this post!

    deinonychus

    It seems you guys are taking the Ark Additions into the main game. Thats awesome, does that mean we will be getting a brachi and deinsuchus as well? The dracorex or styracosaurus would also be great additions as well. Would love to see pterodactyls too.

    E3 2019 is in 1 week and 2017 on E3 they just released the new Ragnarok free to play DLC out of nowhere with the new Griffin i guess this will just be a small hint on new free DLC release next week and that might be the new dino for it like Griffin on Rag.

    Everyone keeps saying its Deinonychus which is a probable answer but another probable answer is a velociraptor which could be smaller than the Utahraptor but larger than a dilophosaurus but it would be debatable if you can ride them or not probably not

    Has no one put 2 and 2 together yet? They’re repurposing low pop legacy servers and now they’ve just announced a potentially new dino. My suspicions are leaning heavily towards a new map and content 🤔

    Would it be pre-extinction story wise? I'd love a water-ark.

    I think you’re the first person in a long time to mention a prequel of some sort. Extinction ends the story but no one said we can’t go backwards.

    I’d love a water map, a snow map, or a combination of both.

    Oh yes water map would be nice. With a few islands here and there.  Yes NEW creatures please.

    I would say either a Deinonychus, future DLC first creature (doubt it but possible) or a TLC for something such as the Microraptor leading into TLC patch 3

    Is the mysterious mystery for a new dlc? If so will it be covered under the season pass?

    You don't think a season has passed yet?

    Hey with this new dino, you think we could maybe fix hit boxes or something? maybe the glitch were your bow gets stuck in the pulled position and then doesnt register that it fired an arrow? or how when a dino is just far enough into the water you cant harvest it unless youre in the water too even though you can hit it while standing on the beach? new dinos are great and all but im pretty sure we would rather have some of the annoying bugs/glitches (that have been plaguing the game since the start) fixed too.

    So is this new creature part of an upcoming new DLC? All previous Mysterious Mysteries with the torn Dossier (besides the DodoRex iirc) have been part of a DLC.
