  • 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 ???????

    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!

    yeah, like a crystal boss? something along that line would be nice

    also, maybe some crystal minions like rockwell did with the aberration creatures

    i think there will be something like that so you will need to unlock the TEK saddle to ride the new flyer

    The saddle of the flying animal looks like the rocket engine on the OP MK2, GTA meets Ark, Ornithocheirus Greifers?

    It will be separate from season passes. Crystal Isles will be a free DLC just like Ragnarok, Valguero, and The Center.

    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.

    Can you read it says all platforms

    Before using your very first post on here to asking whether someone can read, you should first fully understand the post you are responding to.

    Crystal Isles is releasing on 4th June on PC Steam ONLY and will be coming to other platforms at a later date. This is why Elgar asked about the new dino being exclusive or not to Crystal Isles.

    @Elgar if you are not already aware, the new dino will be spawning on other maps on console as of 4th June, until Crystal Isles is released on console. At that point the dino will then revert to being an exclusive spawn on Crystal Isles.

    I got to be honest, my first post may not have been a good one, but the new people are always unfamiliar with the surroundings and/or what to say.

    Lol so when is Genesis Part 2 going to be released or how about some new information on it?  Will we get it before the next generation of consoles come out which is starting in October of this year?

     

    You clowns have not mentioned Part 2 since you failed to make the Part 1 deadline last year. 

     

    This is the number one reason to wait before you buy, thrilled i didn't buy it lol, looking forward to playing crystal isle on console this winter because I can only assume that's when it will launch on consoles lol.

    Well Genesis Part 2 was scheduled for Winter 2020, so based on that, it is NOT expected by October because Winter starts in December. So Part 2 isn't expected before December 2020.

    Considering Part 1 was delayed, and the whole world has suffered a very bad year so far that has disrupted many businesses and lives, this could very well have an impact on the release of Part 2.

    So, to answer your question, not before Dec 2020, just like they announced when they announced the Season Pass.

    There's no point sugar coating anything. We all know from the announcement it wouldn't be before December 2020, so that shouldn't really be news to many.

    And we all know that life in general has been put on hold due to the pandemic, so there chances it may have an impact on Part 2 releasing is a fair bet.

    I'm not sure how you want me to sugar coat it.

    So according to your BS wildcard will have a ten day window to release in winter 2020 given the first day of winter is December 21st.  Also that they announced part 1 and 2 and began charging for genesis back in fall of 2019, would leave you to believe that part 1 was complete and part 2 was nearly finished.  

     

    Honestly if you couldn't give out any new information you could have just kept quiet. You are on here to keep the forum running and to keep potty language off not to start pissing matches with patrons of this site.
