    ExtraLife 2019 Recap

    20191104_111017_red.jpg

    We at Studio Wildcard would like to give a sincere thanks to the community for participating in our latest 24 hour ExtraLife charity event. With the help of our community and ExtraLife team, we raised over $90,906.20 and beat our highest amount raised in 2018 at $76,630.27!  We couldn't have done this without the help of our generous community, our amazing sponsors, and our dedicated community who signed up to join our team. We gave away over $10K in prizes with items from Discord, AMD, Alienware, season pass keys, and more!

    As with prior ExtraLife events, we take this as an opportunity to share sneak peeks at upcoming content.  In true tradition, we shared video and visuals from the upcoming Genesis DLC.  We're excited to take you on a new adventure in Genesis and look forward to sharing more unseen content.  If you missed the event on Saturday and want a sneak peek of Genesis, we've created a clip of a recap on Twitch.  This clip includes the videos and concept art of all the Genesis content that was shared during the event.

    If you're looking for quick access to the individual videos, you can find them on YouTube.

    Poker After Ark

    3A1DF6661128AFE6F5FF24E596B161684D56E3E9

    Poker After Ark offers the ability to play NoLimit Hold'em Poker with up to nine players at the same table.
    There are four different tables to play on.
    - PokerTable FullRing (9Max)
    - PokerTable Shorthanded (6Max)
    - PokerTable Ramshackle (4Max)
    - PokerTable HeadsUp (2Max)

    The Hunt

    92D3EC536A9C0F5D063B5398AB30552CDFF04124

    Hunt
    In hunt mode, one person plays as a terrible monster, and other persons (hunters) try to defeat the monster 
    and prevent it from evolving into an adult beast. Hunters have several types of weapons and traps, 
    including flamethrowers and rifles. The monster has invisibility, a special vision that allows you to detect 
    living beings. Do not think that you can escape from it on the height - a monster can climb anywhere.
    
    Survive.
    In this mode the goal of the survivors is to run away from the monster by opening the gates that are powered 
    by generators. Generators appear in random places on the map and their number depends on the number of 
    survivors. Power the generators with energy cells to open the gate and escape.

     

    ARK Arena

    This mod contains 4 fun game modes which will allow you to experience the full depth of Ark 
    PvP without the grinding

    We also want to thank our moderators in the chat for helping manage the event, our sponsors, and all our Studio Wildcard survivors that were behind the scenes making the event and reveals possible!  We're looking forward to ExtraLife 2020 and if you want to find out more about ExtraLife and how to get involved, visit the ExtraLife website!

    No Evo event until after the event but the event ends Friday. Sure hope there's still an event to make up for the servers dying and losing babies or toons :(

    Really looking forward to the next themed event!!

    I suspect this is the pressure plate for the alarm system.

    Well done everyone for an amazing Extra Life 2019. It was great to see both ARK and ATLAS communities come together for a common and worthy cause.

    Why are Xbox users not included with these types of statements?  Primitive+ on PVE servers for The Island and The Center are also missing wild dinos, yet I never see it mentioned in an official statement.    Today marks two weeks without wild dinos.  Were this to happen on Evolved servers, I can only imagine how quickly this issue would be dealt with.  For shame that you, Wildcard, treat your players who pay just as much to play as anyone else so poorly.

    it's funny when people's platform of choice doesn't get the attention they wish it did, they act like this is some sort of "game as a service" deal that they are constantly paying for.  well in fairness the mobile version kind of is.  i'd stop buying the expansions if you want to send a message.
