    What better time to introduce you to a creepily cute new creature preparing to make its debut on the ARK for Genesis 2. Would that adorable face mean you any harm? Of course not! 

    Stay posted for more exciting Genesis 2 reveals and teasers during our Extra Life stream! 

    ...speaking of...

    We are gearing up for another year of Extra Life.  The Extra Life charity stream is a 24-hour stream where all proceeds directly benefit children in need.  This year's Extra Life event kicks off on November 7th at 10 AM PSTExpect prizes and giveaways like Collector's Edition's, boosted Official Network rates, and sneak peeks at upcoming content. We also have some very special guests lined up to make an appearance and it's something we don't think you'll want to miss! The rates for the Extra Life event are listed below.  Can we hit a billion?

    November 7th also marks the date of the much awaited Tender Loving Care 3 patch.  We can't wait to get the turbo boosted Wolly Mammoth and Stego into your hands along with some juicy Quality of Life additions! Read more about what's included below:

    LiveOps Update

    This past week, we completed a Official Network upgrade that will have a positive effect on all platforms.  The intent of the upgrade was to resolve problems relating to character loss, player timeout, latency, and failure to download or upload player data.  We thank you for your understanding and patience as the upgrade came with a brief interruption in service on the Official Network.  Ensuring a smooth playing experience on the Official Network remains a top priority.


    EVO Event: Fear Evolved

    I really wish you could push the TLC to another date.  I really look forward to the Extra Live event.  However I live in the country and my internet is less than the best so with a big update I will be spending a large portion of the day downloading the TLC.  Maybe you could allow the update to download earlier and just install on the actual date planned like WOW does.

    ummm, the image showing the new creature is a bit freaky, kind of unexpected from WC. to make an image like that. new brown undies affect monster incoming.

    2x and been that way since the start of event.

    Then why do have my Dododex app set for 3x taming and it’s spot on with the amount of kibble to tame the animal.  Tamed a 145 Karkinos just today with the 3x kibble amount.  Unless it’s only Xbox that has 3x taming because we got the event 4 days late.

    Oh man @Luewen and @ccz2887 you both need to learn to pay attention to what is going on, on your respective platforms.

    PC = 2x taming

    Xbox = 3x taming

    So you are both right, lets move on.

    Is the tlc update at the same time as the Extra Life Event? Some of us are going to miss out as a 15gb update can take a full day, wouldntthe tlc be better after the extra life event so the Xbox users who have missed some of the afear Event, dont miss the extra life event aswell? I was really excited about the extra life event till i realised the tlc update is on the same day :(

    What AWESOME fan art! Love seeing it. Can't even choose a favorite this week. Please continue these. 😁🥰

    Also LOVE that creepy cute creature creepy and cute is my favorite!

    You guys might break the servers if you got a billion, but I hope you do for those kids in need! 😆🥰

    On a side note I'm not sure entirely what Cloudfare is, but wild card you might consider using a different service provider if possible in that area. I bet you connectivity would improve. 😁

    I know it's a big issue today!

    Keep working hard for us true fans wildcard! We don't talk as much as the negative Nancies because we are having fun with your awesome creations!

    Let's see how long it takes after launch for Gen2 to be stable. Gen1 is still buggy AF.

    Is there Ever going to be an event based outside of the US? The extra life event starts at 3am Monday for me... it would be nice to see events from other parts of the world... like Australia,  UK, Germany etc..

    Some brilliant people have been theorizing on this thing already, and we think that it may have a spring-lock like mouth from FNaF SL (Taking note of marks near and part of mouth), and will use it's tongue to attack. Just theorizing though.
