  • Community Crunch 256: Introducing Voidwyrm & Update on Genesis II

    We know that what you want is news on Genesis II, so let's not mince words and get straight to it: We have decided to push our final DLC release date to May 26th, for PC, Xbox, PlayStation, and Stadia. 

    First and foremost, please accept our humble apologies. We're disappointed and have no doubt, everyone, eagerly awaiting Genesis II will feel that along with us. 

    As we have shared before, the Studio transitioned to working remotely near the beginning of last year, presenting some particular constraints. Being entirely virtual is quite challenging for various teams with a shift from an in-office workflow. 

    In addition to the complications of working remotely, one challenge has been figuring out how to close out the ARK saga faithfully. From a narrative, cinematic, and end-game-wise perspective, it's something close to our hearts that we want to honor as the grand finale.

    This journey we've all taken through ARK: Survival Evolved over the past six years is important to our players and us, and the extra time will make a massive difference to the quality of the Gen II when it lands in your hands. We're passionate about delivering something truly special, and we're confident this extension will allow us to give you the epic finale you deserve.

    And on that note, we'd like to introduce you to the formidable Voidwyrm, a powerful and challenging new tame that will soar above the ARK with the launch of Genesis II!

    Internally, we think of Genesis Part II as having two significant philosophical changes in comparison to Genesis Part I. These changes are a direct result of player feedback:

    1. The entire map is open and livable, with minimal no-build zones that avoid disrupting the over-world and an esthetically pleasing environment.
    2. Structures, items, and creatures have been designed to assist and improve gameplay and QoL for all of our players and designed to expand the meta in meaningful ways.

    On behalf of the Wildcard team, we want to thank you for your ongoing support and passion. We're looking forward to sharing ARK: Survival Evolved’s final climactic chapter with you!

    Why is it that everytime we are told the community feedback says something, everyone who plays ark is thinking something else? Who the hell are these community people that clearly don't play the game?

    I don't know where you are getting this "everyone who plays ark is thinking something else" from but the changes they are making based on community feedback, as per this Crunch regarding an open map and buildable map instead of what Gen I was, a walled off map with too much build restrictions, a lot of the community requested this.

    I for one am pleased they took on the community feedback from Gen I and made these changes.

    you mean do they take community made ideas? seems like they would but on very rare occasions, for instance that dedication to "All those who have ascended" in Valguero is the only thing I can think of that was community made that made it into a singular map

    well, flip. this is bugging me. isn't the point of fanbase 'ideas' meant for IDEAS? not some ignorant workers? no offense to anyone, but still.

    Has anything in this game ever released on time? Not that I know of anyway.  Its hard to be disappointed with a company that has consistently let its fan base down with empty promises. He'll it's not even like it was originally supposed to release in March that in its self was a delay. Maybe wildcard needs to find another business to get into because running a gaming industry seems to be a but much for them. And using the pandemic as an excuse when every other tease has been delayed as well is in my opinion a bs excuse.

    Pods get a nice improvement, but some of my dinos get randomly, depending on the single dino even of the same species, additional region colors (eg: rex have 4 region colors, some of my rexes on cryo get 5 colors, other get 6 in the description).

    Excited to be able to finish the  Story of ark. I have been playing since the Alpha and I love this game. My brother and I have 1000's of hours playing this together. Thank you for the amazing game, and keep up the great work. I sure the end of ark will be phenomenal!

    I notice a kinda Tek pad in the voids mouth, I don’t think it’s a toungh, but I also don’t think it really looks like a breath thing. Maybe a like radiator, something that emits a signal or something.

    Would be neat if they could change their breath attack or if they emitted a sound shockwave to stun and disorient perhaps.

    *sigh* no man. Just no.

     

    what no man just no, it is how it is they've always pushed back a release and always it was not their fault, so do not come here with no knowledge at all and be a white knight.

    2 days before march release they tell us 3 month pushback, after we've already waited 2 extra month because it was planned for jan.

    what a joke again

    and then this ignorant fanboys that look through rose-colored glasses.... the last day you have posted over 15 replys on this site dude... omg nothing else to do?

    Ok. So you said, now they have the ultimate excuse, covid. If you read my other posts that you mention later, then you would see I do have reason and knowledge. Covid isn’t just an excuse to cover up a delay, it is a very valid reason for a delay that is very understandable, or at least should be. Transitioning to a home workspace involves lots of roadblocks and distractions. Also it wasn’t 2 days before release, it was almost 30 days, they had Gen 4 chronicals on feb 24th or something, Gen 5 chronicals would be March 24th ish, and release would be shortly after.  Again, valid reason covid, 

    first of, rose colored glasses? What does that mean? seams like I’d mean I’m seeing red, which usually means rage. And just because I’m not a pessimist somehow is an insult or makes my opinion invalid? And lastly it doesn’t take that long to send 15 msgs. I could send 15 msgs in like 10 minuets, that means nothing, and also, yes, I don’t have and yes, I don’t have anything else to do, covid is boring, and I don’t have access to a PC RN, and it’s been raining a lot.

    And plus, would you rather have trashy buggy small map DLC *Cough*ext*cough* or a big beautiful polished large map with little bugs many new creatures and mechanics and items(that are useful and balanced) and an immersive story? It’s the last and biggest DLC, give em a break. Let them make it good, and not what happened with cyberpunk.

    I think they choose them  randomly from art they like around the net. I did post my art never on the forums here or the Ark discord, only on my galleries and tumblr and they must have found it on my devianart =).
