    TLC 3 is getting close, Saturday, 7th November at 10 AM PST to be exact!

    We have much in store for our players: The Mammoth and Stego revamp including visual and functional upgrades, some creepy crawly evolutions, and various QoL additions. Stay posted for more details on what will be included in TLC 3 in next week's Community Crunch!

    We will be enabling full server transfers into Crystal Isles on our Official Xbox and PS4 Servers on Friday, November 20th. This means from that date, players will be able to download items and creatures onto the map without restriction.

    ...Plus a quick spooky update on Fear Evolved 4!

    We'll be adjusting our boosted rates for the event! From the 22nd of October through to November the 6th, the Official ARK network will be receiving a spectral treat with:

    • 2X Breeding (mating interval, egg hatch speed, and maturation)
    • 2X XP
    • 2X Harvesting
    • 2X Taming

    Our 24 hour Extra Life stream is fast approaching and we invite everyone from the community to join us for a great cause. Let’s try to beat or prior year record of $112,206.35 and see what we can raise for the kids through gaming and giving. This year's ExtraLife event kicks off on November 7th at 10 AM PST!

    We'll be coming to you live from our Seattle Studio to bring 24 hours of entertainment, giveaways, Collector’s Edition boxes, game keys, and much more! Whether you’re a streamer, a donor or just keen to be along for the ride, we’d love to have you!

    Like prior events, we will be enabling boosted rates for all players on our Official Networks. These rates increase incrementally as each fundraising milestone is reached.  Further details on milestones and rates will be shared closer to the start of the event.

    If you’re feeling heroic, and want to support the event with your own stream and donation goals, sign up, and let’s raise some money for the kids! Gather your tribes, alliances, and stimberries, and feel free to hop into the official ARK discord for an epic 24hr adventure! 

    If you'd like to join the cause and help us fundraise or contribute a donation, check out our Extra Life page!

    Hi there

    I have a question 😄

    That part of crystal isles, that it becomes open for transfer on console,

    Is there a tiny chance that i will be able to play the map?🤩

    I play on an ark official server,  its a cluster with 8 maps EU and NA,  all its players were so exited when we heard crystal isles was beeing released

    But we still dont have it availeable to play ☹

    We are kinda done with the endgame of our current maps (abberation was the last time we had a new expention) 

    we are hoping to also be able to expend our ark adventure to the crystal isles

    Greetings😁

    Looks too much like Akira.  Someone is getting sued.  F351D086-4EA3-42A1-A544-344EA5AC495E.thumb.jpeg.4e5ab6a85727842db8be44abb6169751.jpeg

    A lot of things in this game look a LOT like other things - you think this is the first thing WC have ripped off for this game?

    It's like games companies think that games never get played by people who read manga/watch anime.

    IKR! It's not like the name of the image was literally AkiraLikePoster_Promo_STA.jpg. That would make it too obvious for the forums detectives. 🙄

    LOL!

    It is around the time of the anniversary so there is that. Also - and I haven't watched it in some time so I may be wrong here but - I am pretty sure that it was a cyberpunk-motorbike film and not once did someone speed along the roads of NeoTokyo on a giant fish. But like I say, maybe I am wrong and the whiner above has something to prove that riding a big fish is somehow breaking some obscure copyright.

    Oh wait! They rode giant fish in One Piece! Hmmm... maybe the studios for both Akira and One Piece should team up and sue? 

    Bc showing people walking and showing people having a fish you can ride are clearly in violation of something. Probably someone's privilege.

    Sweet good to see the extra life event coming and the fear evolved event not far off, TLC, really excited about the special event rates hell yeah!!!! Thanks WC!  The question I do have is you are opening transfers for console crystal isles in about a month, November 22 I think you said, now why in the name of ALL THINGS HOLY, would you want to open transfers up for a map as another event has kicked off (or about to kick off, that is I’m assuming we are still getting turkey trials)????  Do you guys understand at all what happens?  Lag issues, disconnect issues, people coming on here and bitching about the lag and disconnecting, and the inability to log on.  You have bumped the official network to permanently 2x from or the summer rates, and server pop almost always doubles during events.  I just foresee some serious problems rearing their ugly head if you open up transfers during or at the start of an event.  The lag and disconnect issues will be bad enough when players start moving entire bases and dinos to crystal isles, even with the use of cryopods.  @Cedric, please talk to the team and maybe reconsider opening transfers in between events? Say like a week after fear evolved event and a week before turkey trials?  It’ll save everyone a lot of headaches all the way around, us and you all at WC.  Give people a chance to play “catch up” so to speak, and be able to enjoy the events instead of trying to rush getting things moved then only be able to enjoy maybe a week of an event if that.

    I know its OFF the topic, @Cedric but please leave message to crew to fix Aberration!
    - day/time and surface behavior mess
    - boss Rockwell's tentacles electroshocking blue (starter) plate
    - Rockwell orbs disappeared. Noticed yesterday (i know its nice to get them off but its definitely a bug).

    and please add more creatures to Aberration

    Thanks!

    @Cedric not everyone wants to pay for a server or play official. I play on an Xbox dedicated server - so why shouldn’t I be able to get events like everyone else who bought the same game? This is an issue that needs to be fixed.

    I think you mean Tuesday, the 20th for transfers Wildcard.  Friday is the 23rd.  Is transfers for consoles on Tuesday the 20th Cedric?

    You'll get the event still, what this crunch is talking about are the boosted rates that come with it. And if you're on a dedicated server, you can just modify the rates at your leisure.

    Also, on a different note, I can't wait for the event or TLC 3.

    So Extra Life event will be a bust because TLC3 will break the game as such updates always do. @Cedric is it possible to delay the TLC until after ELE?

    There better be a new type of wolf in genesis 2, Imma be really disappointed if there isn't. I've been waiting years watching 3 new types of parasaurs be released with no new wolves  :(

    I’m thinking the new map is going to be a lot of water and space.   Look at the A in the main art

    Is anyone else extremely confused by the teaser image? 

    Just been trying to break it down. At a glance it seems we're getting another space whale saddle, but like, why? Are they really going to try to hype the next DLC with a second saddle for a previous DLC creature? Also, space whales don't see a whole lot of use right now as it is. Are we going to be travelling through space now? If not, then why would we need more speed for just traversing around the map? This whole 'your new ride' stuff would make sense if we were getting tek tron bikes or something, which is what I thought this was at a glance but the teaser we're given just raises a lot of confusing questions. I'm wary of old content being reused for something new so hopefully it goes beyond that.

    I don't know what to make of it, hopefully it actually has a use in PvE and isn't just a fancy gimmick. My guess is Rockwell is planetary and we need to traverse the outskirts of the planet, like in the image, or perhaps we can travel to other planets for the different biomes this time around? Grasping at straws but the only thing that makes sense.

    I believe it is a new creatures, though it might not be, and if it isn’t, then this saddle is probably meant to be a new use for it, maybe one of the only ways to space? And I do hope it’s PvP useful too.. Also thinking this whole map will have a Rockwell tendril themes like corrupted dinos in extinction...

    No, ARK is already running on a heavily modified Unreal Engine and upgrading to Unreal 5 is like doing a complete remake of the game.

    Cough “ark 2?” Cough also, I feel bad for Modders and all the peps who like to play modded if that happens

    Insect breeding has been getting hinted at and outright shown with two baby mantis’ awhile back.

    so there is a third thing it seems but it’s for all insects I think. 

    I’m hoping this is true, especially hyped for lymantia... maybe it’s taking a long time cuz they are doing it all like bloodstalker but with custom models?

    Well I believe it is intended to be a reference for people that DO know, how do you know they didn’t get permission or something first? And is this even sueable? It’s not really a copy with changes it’s just kinda inspired off and formatted similar, but maybe I don’t know enough about law...

    it does look like a new whale. Smaller, faster, more agile?

    Saddle looks a little built for speed, also notice this lip, space whale dosent have that, it’s not long enough either, especially relative to the player, among other distinctions
