    We've prepared a special announcement for ARK fans that you won't want to miss. It all starts at The Game Awards on December 10th!


    Classic PvP Season 3

    Classic PvP returns! These servers are a Snail Games initiative to shake up the current PvP meta. The aim is to create a competitive player experience for PC players which focuses on the PvP experience from the days of old. Next week we'll be kicking off Season 3 of Classic PvP (bringing an end to our Conquest season).  If you're unfamiliar with what Classic PvP is, there's a quick breakdown below.

    Classic PvP Breakdown:

    • Experience gain, taming, gathering, breeding, hatching, and raising rates have been doubled compared to our standard Official Servers (2x)
    • Tribes are set to 25 players max
    • Tribe alliances are disabled, though informal alliances are allowed
    • Servers have a maximum player count of 100
    • These maps will be available: The Island, Scorched Earth, Ragnarok, Valguero, and The Center
    • Classic PvP servers are unaffected by Evolution Events
    • Tek dinos (Tek Parasaur, Tek Quetzal, Tek Rex, Tek Raptor, Tek Stego), Paracer, Tapejara, and the Titanosaur are not available for taming on Classic PvP
    • All Aberration and Extinction content is unavailable on Classic PvP
    • Scaling of weapon damage has been reduced
    • No TEK Engrams
    • No cave building
    • Cryopods enabled

    Prior to the launch of Season 3 next week, we'll share more details on the launch and timing.

     


    EVO Event

It will be active from Tuesday the 24th of Nov at 4 PM EST until  Thursday the 10th of December. All Official Servers across each platform will be undergoing this evolutionary change which includes:

    • 2x Breeding/Maturing/Egg Hatching
    • 2x Harvesting
    • 2x Taming
    • 2x XP

    I think you'll find you are on the 10th December. Hardly any of the planet is still on the 9th.

    Apparently theres no edit option anymore for your posts.  Sorry for the double post.  Considering when i wrote my 1st post and the fact the timezone line(I forget the official name for it) that ends and starts the zone cycle is just west of Alaska, nowhere was it the 9th at that time XD.

    Sorry for the confusion, i should of said here i was instead of am.

    I know when i posted it that it was the 10th.  That doesnt change the fact that on the 9th, WEDNESDAY, that the event was off.

    @Cedric Serious questions here :

    - Will the new game support modding?
    - Will you guys keep on doing the Mod Sponsorship for the current game?
    - Assuming the new game does support mods and uses a newer version of UE4, will we modders be able to port our work to the new game?

    Being curious because I'd hate to see my last few months of work, creating a unique map going into the trash can...

    Let me explain this better for you @Joebl0w13.  I got on wednesday night.  I used an account ive used before with previous events with no issue before with those events.  The turkey trial logo was not there.  The cooking pot had no holiday stuff in it.  The event was off.  That or there was some sort of bug, regardless the content was unavailable.  I wasnt able to come on then, so i posted about it today.  Im just curious if anyone else experienced it.  Now forgive me if im wrong, but doesnt wc usually say in their crunches that updates drop at a certain time in pacific time?  Pacific time is 3hrs behind eastern.  I noticed this because whenever they say 1pm its around 4pm that it drops here.  So if they do things by pacific time, than at 10 or 11pm my time its only 7 or 8pm in their time.  So the event should of still been on at that time, and it wasnt for me.

    Valient effort. You said it was still the 9th in your post when it was long into the 10th. 😆

    It's also completely irrelevant by now.

    Its relevant if they do it again in the upcoming event

    Yeah curious about this too, I assume it wolnt all be compadiable, but will all our models and maps still work and not have a new system we need to use? And to you dark, it wolnt go in the trash, it will just exsist as an Ark 1 mod, which without a doubt will be diffrent then 2 and some people will obviously prefer it.

    I did some research and the best UE version they can technically have is UE 4.26, which in theory would support existing assets.

    UE5 is due late-2021 and Fortnite will be the first game to feature it.

    ONLY Ark 2 and an Animated Series?!?!? How much bigger of an announcement do you want?!?

     

    unless you were being sarcastic, in which case, please ignore this comment.

    Non faranno l'Arca 2 ... Per tutti quelli che lo dicono. Se mai lo faranno, è molto lontano. Lo hanno detto gli sviluppatori stessi. Onestamente, probabilmente ha qualcosa a che fare con Gen2. Sembra il più plausibile ... Anche se sarebbe bello se mettessero in pausa il gioco per una settimana o un mese e passassero il codice riga per riga e risolvessero la cacca invece di sovrapporre il codice al codice sul codice. ... IJS. Sarei lieto di non giocare per tutto quel tempo perché fosse veramente risolto. Amo amore amore Ark e mi piacerebbe davvero vederlo diventare un gioco a tutto tondo, davvero coinvolgente e giocabile. Difficile essere completamente immersi quando lag e DC sono ancora così comuni. 

    Ed invece ti sbagli 😁😁😁
