  • Community Crunch 359: ARK 2 Carnotaurus Saddle Concept and ASA Comparison!


    While we're going to wait to reveal the gameplay of ARK Survival Ascended until it's near final-form, we want to show you how we're approaching the new game artistically. ASA is much more than a complete technology overhaul, we are also going through and revising the artwork by hand for a new conception of the worlds of ARK.

    Here's a first look at what "Remaster" means in ARK Survival Ascended:



    Stay tuned to subsequent Crunches for more looks at the re-envisioned style of ARK Survival Ascended!




    We couldn't leave you with our previous ARK 2 Carnotaurus reveal without showing an example of our new-look dino armor! The team is thoroughly enjoying designing armor to make your favorite tames both protected and eye-catching. We look forward to seeing what players do with the arsenal options!

    Something I'm very excited to see with ark 2 is the saddles improving realistically, think like the rex, that clearly has space for at least 4 to 6 people yet can only hold one. I'm happy to see that they fixing this in ark 2 with some creatures!
