  • Community Crunch 218: New Free Map DLC, New Sponsored Mods, and On The Horizon

    Introducing Crystal Isles

    ARK_Crystal_Isles_Promo_STA.jpg

    We are very excited to announce that the one-of-a kind experience of the ISO: Crystal Isles map will be coming to PC, XBOX, and PlayStation this Summer!

    Crystal Isles is a stunning, other-worldly map filled with a vibrant display of teeming life scattered amidst its varied landscapes, awe inspiring floating islands and breathtaking biomes. Ever since Crystal Isles launched as a mod in 2016, its fantasy appeal has secured its place as one of the most popular maps within the ARK community and we can't wait to bring it to players as a fully supported free DLC.

    The Crystal Isles DLC will also launch resplendent with a new real-world dinosaur to tame! What do you think the new dinosaur may be?


    In other news, we've been itching to share that we'll be performing a TLC Pass 3 in the Summer of 2020! This TLC pass will see some of our classic creatures get some new love via visual and functional upgrades.

    As we move closer to the release of the new Crystal Isles DLC and our much-awaited TLC Pass 3 we'll share more details and information with our players.

    Dead Survival

    Tired of dinosaurs? Of course you aren’t, but sometimes we do want a little change in our diet. Dead Survival does just that, you can swap out the wildlife of the game with some … not… quite life? Zombies… I’m trying to say you can have zombies. Lots and lots of zombies. Hordes of them even.

    Check out the Dead Survival Mod

    Roleplay Additional Items

    RP communities have been a long time aspect of ARK, but sometimes our core structures can feel a bit insubstantial when you are trying to build a set for acting in. Roleplay Additional Items can add a lot more flourish to your locations from lighting structures and gear, to new taxidermy stations!

    Check out the Roleplay Additional Items Mod

    ArkVenture Park

    I’m pretty sure we have all dreamed of having our own backyard water slides and roller coasters. (Zen may have actually tried at one point, and failed… obviously) But now you can do just that in your base. Build that mine-cart roller-coaster that plows through your living room or a water-slide to the lava pools out back!

    Castles, Keeps, and Forts: Remastered

    CKF development went dormant for a little while while the author went on a break. But it’s back, and getting a face-lift. The author is taking what they learned over the years and working on a remastered CKF (The original is still available). So far it’s looking great!

    On The Horizon

    Primitive+

    Primitive+ remains a priority.  We have engineering teams working on the complications from the Genesis update.  We will keep you informed with any significant progress

    Genesis Part I Update

    We're continuing to work on Genesis bugs and balance and we plan to keep up with the rapid iterations. Thank you for your reports and feedback.

    I'm pretty sure the new dinos might be the crystal isles related, so the Crystal Wyverns and Griffins and the Liquified dinos . Not sure the Embertross are going to stay since how Valguero was treated at the release. I'm happy for Isolde, her map is amazing but I'm also afraid it will be ruined like Valguero (the element chamber biome is useless, literally). I really hope this time you won't cut almost everything. Maybe put as requirements the DLC to play the map.  So it can be played as it meant to be.

    Besides that, I'm happy that the TLC is back! Wonder what is going to be loved this time 😛

    Could show the Dunkle some TLC... It's bad at defense, slow as s#*t, and ugly af... Maybe make certain resources weigh less in its inventory 🤔 just a thought

    Is Primal Survival ever going to be looked at again? A new and exciting aspect to bring to the table? 2016 we had trailers for it and then it was "not in active development" has it been scrapped completely?

    Will it be available for people who don't have Genesis Season Pass?

    Yes, it has nothing to do with Genesis. It's just like Ragnarok, The Center and Valguero, it's free.

    Is it just me or does the oviraptor need one. It should be able to wonder around our bases picking up eggs that our dinosaurs lay it would really get rid of the whole hassle of making egg farms. The oviraptor should also be able to automatically pick up fertilized eggs but it is kind of op so there should be a cooldown or something for it.
