    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?

    Love how everyone on last week's crunch were saying "well they'll announce it in the next crunch, it's going to come out", of course they were gonna push it back, it's Wildcard! If you expect a good product on time, then you're out of luck, you get a bad product when they feel like it and you don't get a say!

    Stop with the "club ark" rubbish and first do what was promised instead of bringing in such childish crap. You can also keep to appointments.

    Bar has become so low at this point that the only thing more farcical in terms of week-after-week nonsense are episodes Star Wars, The Acolyte.

    Everything else has been said, but on a positive note - that Summer Bash artwork turned out great! And I'm really looking forward to the event and the new skins.

    About Ab - I ain't even mad. I'm dreading the mad land rush on our cluster a bit anyway. Extended Summer vacation on The Center sounds pretty okay in my book.

    Every map has been a reskin not a remaster as yet, so you have no excuses to delay Aberration further. All you do is effortlessly porting maps from the old game without fixing any bugs.

    I'd accept the delay if you fixed the game with Unreal Engine 5.4. (But you won't as your incompetence speaks volumes). Seriously fire all your community managers and marketing managers as there is no community managing and game marketing in ARK and hire competent programmers to fix the actual game so it won't run 40FPS on low on a RTX 30 Series Card.

    I really hope I'm wrong but if you search for UE 5.4 crashes you will see devs from other projects claiming that they are having the same random DXGI_ERROR_DEVICE_HUNG crashes as in previous engine versions. I have very low expectations on v5.4 to give any stability improvement.

    "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.

    Ok. Stop playing the game then

    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. 

    Yes,but after the mess with delays of the Center they probably doing a DLC and then a Mod Map

    After all the delays with The Center, how could Aberration release in July? It is definitely a complex map and they can't give it in a month. Also this means all the roadmap are now all misplaced

    Just wait until 09/05/2024 rolls around, and Aberration isn't released...
