  • Community Crunch 271: Genesis 2 Launch, Plushie Giveaways, and More!

    ARK_GEN2_KeyArt_Logoless_3840x2160.png

    The Studio Wildcard team is thrilled to finally complete the ARK saga with the release of ARK: Genesis Part 2. We've been watching, sharing, and enjoying the content you've been posting across social media platforms.  We're already working through several tweaks and bug fixes based on player reports and feedback.  We’ll keep you updated with the progress through our normal social channels.

    Thanks to Ark’s passionate community and a love for new content that fits its mold, what were once straightforward plans have become so much more. Through in-game events, free DLC maps, and continued game updates, we’re also polishing, addressing player feedback and fixing issues to make it a better game for everyone.

    So, what’s next? Not TEK, that's for sure 😏.  As we look forward to a primarily primitive-themed ARK 2, we'll continue to provide meaningful updates and experiences to our ARK 1 survivors.  

    We’re forever grateful for our community which helps us grow, shape, and push the Ark franchise to new heights!

    idk if something is wrong with me or what cause I've been hyped for genesis 2 and when it came out, but I've (in total) only played about 1 hour. I hopped onto singleplayer to test the items then went to play Skyrim for a solid 3 days. I don't know if I need a therapist or some other means of help. Mr.GP help me, destroy my Skyrim addiction.

    Yeah, no. I'm not spending money on another WC game. As much as I love the setting and gameplay of Ark 1, it's broke as can be. Over the years I've seen WC push new content, hoping to dazzle us away from all the game breaking glitches and nerfs. What NEEDS to happen is a dedicated team working on finding and fixing all these little (and obnoxiously big) bugs. All I've read for bug fixes were server crashes and exploits, no actual love for the coding itself. To me, it feels like WC is trying to be over corporatized, despite being a relatively obscure dev team. You guys got the money, now dedicate the resources. Please!

    100 turrets attack at the same time, the ping will reach 255, and the connection will be dropped within 5 seconds

     

    Tested multiple servers, ping is 255

    damage numbers tend to have that effect

    What's with you and the missions? Locking content behind mission counts is a big drag on the game as a whole. I had thought you would have learned that from Gen 1 which is the least played map in the game.

    Does anybody know if you have to collect  every single explorer note on every single map for the extra 10 levels or is it just all notes on genesis 2?

    yes, you do for the 10 levels.

    you need to work for the hexagons and rockwell fight, maybe the stryders too. you get everything else, the map, most the creatures and a free tek suit

    Yeah, sure, it has SOME creatures from nearly all expansions but does not have all of them unique to all expansions. I agree with original comment that it would have been awesome to see more variety. Some things I have yet to see are: Magmasaur, Rock Drake, Morellatops, Tropognatheus, Tek Trike (I feel like this SHOULD be in there), and more!
    Would have also been really cool to see some more diversity in the biomes. I haven't been all over but I haven't seen any lava or snow yet.

    My opinion, that's all.

    The tek gigas would have been nice to. especially since if you add them in by INI they are tamable, have unique eggs and, have a baby model. Honestly I would have liked to see all dinos on it but since they aren't I'll just add them by INI to spawn them in & use simple spawners for nests.

    Ever since the addition of gen2. I have found drops to have nothing but primitive loot. Also c4 doesn’t work properly. Any input would be helpful.

    I’m wondering how long till c4 is fixed, drops are fixed so we stop getting primitive loot and probably a lot whole lot more that I don’t know about. I’ve played ark since almost the beginning and now that it’s at the end I really don’t think you plan on fixing anything. I feel bad for new players who don’t know the extent of arks problems you’ve created a cool game but these continued problems are ridiculous.

    Gen2 servers are over populated by South American players, they lag up the whole damn server. 13 people had to log off at the same time because they couldnt play due to lag, 38 survivors, less than 3 minutes later 25 survivors were left....any chance of adding servers for the S. Americans in their own region? Less lag for all!
