    Ark_Gen2_Haloween_SteamThumbnail_800x450.jpg

    Get ready, our 24-hour Extra Life stream is approaching on November 7th at 10AM PST. We're anxious to beat or prior year record of $112,206.35 and see what good we can do for the kids through gaming and giving. 

    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! You don't want to miss out because at the top of the hour, every hour, we will be sharing juicy Genesis 2 details and teasers.  If you want to know what's in store for Genesis II, be sure to tune in!

    Tender Loving Care 3

    November 7th also marks the date that the Tender Loving Care 3 update will be reaching PC, Xbox, and PS4. Aside from the dedicated reworks of the Stego and Mammoth you may have seen in prior Community Crunches, we’ve added a bunch of Quality of Life changes to make your time on the ARK more enjoyable.  Check out the thread below for more information:

    We'll be keeping you up to date as we hit our donation goals and increase rates on the Official Network but we'd love for the entire community to come and hang out with us while we raise money for a great cause.  Pop a squat in our Official Discord or hang out in our Twitch chat when the action starts.

    ARK Chaos Creator is a unique addition to the sponsorship program; this isn't just a mod for ARK, the Chaos Creator mod will open a line from a twitch stream right to the game. Stream viewers can influence the game for the streamer either making things more difficult, giving them useful (Or sometimes ridiculously chaotic) gifts, or spawning a bunch of mayhem directly on top of them. There is also a version in the works to allow content creators to use channel points instead of bits if they choose.

    EVO Event

    Survivors on all platforms will be receiving a special Evolution Event on November 7th 10AM PST.  See above for details on the Extra Life event and specifics on the rates.

    I hate this event so much, epic lag, crashes, rollbacks, it's a nightmare. 
    I spend more time waiting on server turning back on than enjoying event.

    Do they need to restart the servers every time they change rates? In that case there will be many restarts😂

    Please don’t spoil the whole genesis part 2 for us now Wildcard, save something!

    I know its volunteer to watch but spoilers is hard to avoid anyway.
     

    I liked your early days approach better with the Mysterious Mysteries.

    At least the teasers are given for a good cause. Lets break that record!✌️

    They have more, don’t worry.

    Absolutely will not be making a donation - can't even play the game for more than 10 minutes without the server crashing and down for about 20 minutes.

    Not what the fundraiser is about...
