  • Community Crunch 374: The Center Creature Submissions, EVO Event, and More!


    If you've ever wanted to see your favorite creature added to ARK, now's your chance! There are only a few days left to submit an idea for The Center on ARK: Survival Ascended. Take a look and upvote your favorite creature submissions from the community before the top 10 vote takes place on Monday, August 14th!

    Although there's been a brief pause on ARK: Survival Ascended comparisons, we'll have more to show soon!




    Let's take a trip down memory lane as we embark on our journey to The Center for our next Community Creature Contest. What will be the fan-voted real-world creature that will launch with the map for ARK: Survival Ascended

    Please note that this creature will be released for The Center, so make sure your real-world submissions are in theme with that map! As previously stated, we’ll add an additional real-world creature for each expansion pack map release on ARK: Survival Ascended.

    Check out the Creature Submission Guidelines for more information on the submission process, and hop over to the Creature Submission Forum to see the current entries. We are looking forward to seeing your ideas come to life!

    • The entry period will end at 1 PM Pacific on August 14th.
    • The voting will begin immediately after and end on August 21st at 1PM Pacific.
    • The winner will be announced in the Crunch of August 25th.

    Make sure to check our Twitter on August 14th for the RankedVote link!

    *Note that the proposed features for the creatures from the submission entry are meant to inspire their design, but certain aspects may still be modified.





    Survivors on all platforms will be receiving an EVO Event! It will be active until Monday, August 14th.
    All Official Servers across each platform will be undergoing this evolutionary change which includes:

    Yeah,honestly i think there should be at least one another creature for The Center,considering that it's the only map without an exclusive creature

    I've been saying this since the vote for the center was announced.  The center feels like a unfinished island compared to all the other maps & it's upseting. The map has so much potential, I really hope it doesn't get left in the dirt again.

    I’m not sure if they are redesigning the Yi Ling but I think they might be making sure the dossier makes the Yi fit better in Abberation or at least I hope.

    There is always hope however little.

    I'm glad that Shastasaurus won the Center vote in the end: it would've been a waste if a non-aquatic creature had won.
