  • Community Crunch 224: Anniversary Event, Crystal Isles Launch, New Dino & More!

    Greetings Survivors!

    June 2020 will mark the 5th Anniversary of ARK: Survival Evolved, and what an amazing five years it’s been! We have some special treats planned to commemorate the occasion with our fantastic community!

    We’ll be celebrating this momentous milestone with multi-week long revelries which will include a special birthday in-game event, the arrival of a new dinosaur, and the initial rollout of the one-of-a-kind experience of the expansive Official “ISO: Crystal Isles” map!

    Mysterious Mysteries: Introducing ???????

    surprise_Tease_STA.jpg

    Here’s a little teaser of our new real-world dinosaur primed to make its dizzying mark upon the skies on June the 4th across all platforms! Can you guess what it is??!

    Crystal Isles

    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’re thrilled to bring it to players as a fully supported free DLC.

    Crystal Isles will initially launch for PC on June the 4th, with an Xbox and PS4 launch coming later this summer as the team continues to hunker down and iterate on the console version.

    We hear you on the Crystal Wyverns and they’ll certainly be making their tameable appearance on the Isles! ;)

    Anniversary Event!

    And finally, we’ll be donning our party hats and celebrating with a time-honored in-game event commencing on all platforms on June 4, featuring Party Dodos, interactive cakes, new chibis & surprises, and dazzling unicorns frolicking on rainbows. Yes, really!

    Yup it does certainly look like a Ornithocherius!

    SS2485233.jpg?d63642411528

    Or the Tropeognathus....

    I'm looking forward to the events and checking out the new map/dinosaur. It's been an amazing 5 years and i'm proud to say i've been with it since day 1.

    If I understand correctly, that means that the new dinosaur will not be specific to Crystal Isles, since Crystal Isles will be only available on PC on June 4th.

    Either an Ornithocheirus, Tropeognathus, Anhanguera, or something related. I'm excited either way!

    Really cool!! They say "all platforms" for the new dino, but it doesn't say anything of which maps. Is this the new dino added to Crystal Isles, or is Crystal Wyvern the one? What I'm getting at is - will this new dino come to all maps or just Crystal Isles?

    Oh!!! I really hope they add "naked skins" for hands and feet as well with the anniversary event! I would really like to see them open up for customisation across all equipment slots!

    I am looking forward to this map and have been encouraging my friends to retry ark again.  Many of them, (9 in total )left fed up with the glitches on extinction.  Vowed never to play again. 

    However last week I purchased genesis  and I have been impressed by how well it works. Of course I'm on xbox 1 so it doesnt run as well as on PC. It lags some times but that's it. But iv been telling my friends that ark works again.  Because iv encountered next to no problems. 

    They have shown interest in this new map. Iv learned that this crystal iso map is a work in progress.  Which is a bummer but, I hope it has no glitches because that's just going to upset my friends again and I'll be left playing ark by myself.

    Looking forward to a new map to explore and a new dino to tame. I now know what my next breeding project is going to be. I just hope the map is stable.
