  • 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!

    There were so many amazing entries we found it hard to choose just one winner from each category so we’ve decided to award more prizes.

    Happy anniversary, Ark. Five years of dying, respawning, dying again, taming, building, dying, exploring, dying, crashing, hating you for all the bugs that have become features... and so many of us are still here to celebrate nonetheless XD You found an untapped market of masochists to sell games to, and that was creative genius ;) Just teasing, Ark, you know I love/hate you.

    I was sure the new dino would be a flyer because of Crystal Isles' floating islands, well I'm happy with my guess. I agree with the comment above that this looks a lot like a Tropeognathus (the modder Hokiroya had made a nice one at some point and this beak looks very familiar), and I like the idea of a turret on a creature. Always surprised there aren't more in the game ! Dino Riders showed the way :P 
    ...And I hope you guys notice how excited people get for new "real" dinos ! Sure, all the people who have played CI as a mod wonder what's going to happen to the crystal wyverns, crystal griffins, embertross, and all the mean creatures from Eldritch Island, but there is a real excitement about getting an actual dino, in a game many of us starting playing because of the dinosaur angle. When we talk about it, that's oftentimes the first thing that comes up, along with the nostalgia of the EA phase when discovering regularly new creatures was keeping things fresh and exciting. I'd pay real life money (and possibly with my first born child) for a season pass that introduces new creatures regularly.

    "Later this summer for consoles." Freaking wonderful. The people with the least content have to wait the longest, instead of you just releasing them all simultaneously. Thanks Wildcard, really feeling like you give a crap about us

     

    At least the new dinosaur looks cool.

    I love the new dino thing and all, but I'm still having troubles trying to spawn in the VR dinos and bots from genesis (I'm on Ps4) and I was wondering if wildcard could help me out here. OR anyone at that, i wanna see if I can spawn in bots from genesis, then forcetame them and see if they can roam around acting like tribe members. solo tribe without mods. again as I say: a little help fellas :l

    I don't like the birthday suit skin, wish there was an option to turn the blur off and just deal with the barby doll-like figure of the characters. The blur causes a weird bloom effect and its so freaking annoying on console.

    The drakes need removing tbh, it's too easy to get eggs on a ptera then just hover above all the drakes laughing at them
