    ASA_Aberration_CC_416_28_June_StA_Post_2560x1440.png

    Our next major core-content release this year will be Aberration Ascended —an eerily beautiful, derelict, malfunctioning ARK with an elaborate underground biome system, and the all-new next chapter of Bob’s Tall Tales. To give this special map the attention it deserves, we have moved the launch to September 4th. Our team is refining the process to complete the remastering of the content as efficiently as possible while maintaining our quality. We apologize for the delay in bringing the beloved Aberration to you, but it will be worth the wait! 

    In the meantime, there's a lot more to look forward to! We have several additions on the horizon: the Summer Bash event, a new ARK Additions creature coming to the base game, and lots of fun Club ARK updates. Stay tuned!

    Community_Event.png

    This season, Monarky is taking over the Center one grid at a time. Teams of four are divided by biomes and can initially only explore and build within one grid of the map. Each week, they compete to earn more grid squares, expanding their territory and aiming to conquer the entire map. However, they must be cautious—venturing into unclaimed grids drains their health, and entering enemy grids spells trouble.

    In Monarky VI: Grid Wars, biomes battle biomes. Teams must make do with their initial grid space until they win new crowns through grueling (but fun!) events. Failure leads to the consequences of Loser Island. At the end of the season, only one team will stand above the rest. So, who do you think will outwit, outplay, and outlast?

    Don't worry, I think I can speak for everyone when I say that noone expected Aberration to be released in July. It doesn't help your reputation about delays, but other than that, no big deal. I think overall WildCard just needs to learn how to announce dates that are more reasonable and in line with the work that actually is already done.
    Anyway, looking forward to seeing which will be the next ARK Additions creature in the meantime.

    Well I know that's a lie XD I wonder what you were waiting on before publishing this post.

    "We apologize for the delay in bringing the beloved Aberration to you" why did you even bother saying this? literally not a single player of ark believes there is even a shred of integrity or sincerity in a single thing wildcard have ever said. i truly wonder how embarrasing it must be to work for wildcard if anyone asks where you work, even more embarassing than someone having to say they work at twitter in 2024. with how incompetent wildcard are at remaking maps (not even making them for the first time) we wont be seeing gen 2 until 2026/7.

    it is truly astounding how wildcard manage to drop the ball at every opportunity and find a way to disapoint the already abysmally low expectations the playerbase has after years of incompetence, people were expecting a month delay. 

    a 3 month delay might actually be the biggest joke i've ever seen from the biggest joke studio i've ever seen.

    I have an idea - please add something like a tek pasture which functionality will be not only store food for dinos, but also it would tell how long the feeder will be able to feed creatures with the current amount of food (of course it should also include spoil) separately for carnivores and herbivores.

    it can be something like few tek troughs and tek console combined

    The center just came out 3 weeks ago. Are you expecting a map every 5 mins ?

    I get that WC is the king of delays but a June-Sept release gap for maps isn't big at all really.

    Can you guys at WC make a way to save your dinos and stuff like bps in the cloud to bring out later. I can't do 3 months of this borefeast and I also don't want to lose my top stat breeds.

    That's GREAT to hear about aberration! Also if you need map testers, your community will apply in droves! They will find every little hole and such! Aberration is a very beloved map. Easily a community fav, so please treat it with the utmost care. We love the darkness and deadly beauty of it all.

    ALso, I still wish for innertubes and arm/wing floaties XD

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but I thought Ragnarok came out first and then it was aberration? And yes we all know Acrocanthosaurus is on his way to the base game. Thanks for taking his soul Wildcard.

    I’m not upset about the delay, I fell we all expected it, my only hope is that you acknowledge the issues with single play and other stuff so that peoples game, like mine, can actually be able to play on it
