    Day One! Launch & More!

    large.564e5bac9a509_WelcomeHome.jpg

    Today, ARK: Survival Evolved has made its transition from an Early Access title to a full Digital and Retail release. As a studio, we are incredibly excited about reaching this milestone. It has been a challenging and emotional experience for everyone a part of the ARK world; we're overjoyed about finally being able to hold the complete ARK disc, and want to thank each one of you for joining us on this journey.

    ARK started out as a very ambitious project, in terms of scope of content, features, and the story. It was no secret that we were in for an adventure with what we were hoping to achieve alongside the community. It started out as a basic open-world survival game, with one ARK, one boss, about 30 creatures, and approximately a bazillion bugs give or take. It was hard to say where the game would lead us, regarding its story, and its development. Those of you who were with us for the Early Access launch had many questions about how the world came to be, why you were here, and where we were going. Today, you can begin to discover the answer to those questions.

    Over the past 26 months, the game has undergone massive improvements thanks to feedback from the community. We now launch with four ARKs - including the Norse & Scottish Highland-Inspired "Ragnarok" -, five bosses, over one hundred creatures to tame and encounter, the inclusion of the Primitive+ alternate game mode & Procedural ARKs, hundreds of mods, total User Interface overhauls, general performance enhancements, bug fixes, quality of life improvements, countless additional gameplay plus story elements, and... a toilet.

    With the “1.0” release version, you can experience the full story of ARK: Survival Evolved! Can you make it to the heart of the ARK and discover the shocking secret that lies buried within? While it may seem strange for a survival game to have a “single player” mode with an “ending”, we’re happy that surviving the ARK provides a measure of closure should you seek it, while also pointing the way to what comes next.

    Rest assured this complete version of the game will still be receiving regular updates, and this is not the end of the ARK saga, but only the beginning of the next phase, for great adventures and awe-inspiring new experiences are just around the corner…

    It won't be long before we add two new members to our ever growing family of critters (with the Otter joining us today on PC, with the Phoenix and additional Tek Gear coming later this week!), as well as items, additional gameplay elements and more. ARK has only just scratched the surface, and there is a long future ahead, survivors everywhere will get to experience something out of this world.

    Early Access hasn't been an easy or straightforward process; there is no established guidebook or instructions on how to take a game from early access, and into the full digital and physical retail release. You could say that we now understand why so few have done it. ;)

    Having the community by our side, through thick and thin has been a key component to achieving this milestone. Sometimes we've made mistakes, and have had different opinions, but we truly appreciate each and every one of you. Your feedback, ideas, support, and passion through our Early Access journey have been vital to the development of the game and will continue to be invaluable to us. The community has undoubtedly influenced ARK for the better and contributed to its success and the landmark of reaching full digital and retail release.

    We encourage everyone who has ever wanted to ride a T-Rex, soar across the skies on the back of a Pteranodon, fish from their boat as the evening sun fades over the horizon, or explore the deepest caverns to encounter terrifying extinct predators, to join us in the living, dynamic world that is ARK: Survival Evolved. Whether online or off, solo or in a large tribe, we think that everyone will find something special to discover on the ARK and make it their home.

    Stay tuned for updates on the relaunch of our Official Server Network on our social media channels (@survivetheark), and watch this space over the course of this week for lots more exciting ARK news, hint hint!

    See you there! :Jerblove:

    Dear Wildcard,

    when will you at more EU PVP Servers? The Problem is all the big Tribes already claimed the servers, for small groups it is impossible to play cause everytime you have a small base 40 Peeps come and destroy everything you have. You even don't have a chance to defend your stuff.

     

    This way you loose your Playerbase cause not the big Tribes are the most players, it is the small groups.

     

    I realy like Ark but at the moment it is useless to start on any server.

    I disagree completely. We built up a pretty decent base on Rag and have done so well, we're building a secondary mining base.

    Ich can understand why they need 3-5 Servers, I have some friends in a mega tribe which are 400 Players, only 2 Server are too less to get them all on it, so I am realy fine with that, but with a small tribe of 8 peeps like we are, you don't stand a chance, many big tribes also prevent you even from spawning cause they built up huts at the normal spawn points so you can't even walk arround. So plz wildcard give us space to play wee payed you well for it.

    I don't know where you play but the 8 EU Servers are full and the big Tribes that claimed them don't let anyone else life there and i they find you they destroy you. So you maybe lucky with yours.

    This may be one of my favorite games but wildcard need to get there poop together. Their are more players than their are servers for everyone to play on. They are the worst on keeping you updated on the game. The worst part is they reward the cheaters but letting them keep all their servers instead of wiping them. Actually if they wipe thos servers I might actually be able to join a game!!!

    I've been so excited to start a new Ragnarok server however they are all full.

    As I work full time and have 2 children I only have 3 hours a day to dedicate to ARK, last night I spent 3 hours waiting to access a server on the Xbox but was unsuccessful.

    Please....Please add more servers.

    I have been looking forward to this for sometime but it is still broken.  Pvp favors Hugh tribes and People that can grind 24.  Or trolls that get one and spend there day doing nothing but messing with others.

    Pve is just a place for a group to com in, drop pillars everywhere so no one can advance.  

    Been trying to play since day one but keep getting trolled no mater were I go.

    Either you use hacks to get ahead or be part of 100 person guild. Anything less and you will just restart everyday.  If it is not fixed Thia game will die.

    You guys need to chill out with the whale especially on no-tame servers. The whale has ruined the fun of building and creating a raft to explore the map. In the no tame servers where the raft was the main means of transport people are just no longer playing. You cannot keep a raft built for very long without it getting destroyed by the whale.

    As long as you stay within the shoreline/shallows then it is fine it's when you go to deep waters there is LOAADS i agree cut back on them but it is manageable my base is on herb island there is FAAAAAR to many normally 5 or 6 and 2 or 3 of them being alphas

    yes having rafts trashed sucks but that don't bother me its the fact that i one hit they wipe everything out that's on it instant death to

    all tames
