    Day Zero: Server Information

    Hey, Survivors! As we enter the final hours before launch, we just wanted to get some vital information out to you! :Jerbhi:

    large.1920x1080.png.47703ab523f3d8269adf

    Day One Patch!

    The Day One patch will be set live across all platforms at approximately 8-9AM EST and should show up on all consoles within the hour. This update will include Ragnarok for console, as well as the End Boss content accessed through the Tek Cave for all platforms. 

    The update size for console will be approximately 26gb for Xbox. We do not have a number for PS4 yet, but PS4 patches are usually smaller in size due to the different method patches are submitted.

    New ARK Servers!

    The Official Server Network for PC will be going offline at 2 AM EST, and The Official Server Network for Consoles will be offline at Midnight EST. There will be at least an 8-hour blackout across all platforms where no Officials are online. After this blackout period, we will launch the new Official Servers, as well as the remaining Legacy servers. Over the course of the 24-hours following this, more servers will come online.

    For ARKs launch, we plan on providing new Official Servers for the following games mode: Regular/Vanilla, Non-TEK, Primitive+, Hardcore, Isolated Clusters, NoTaming, Extinction Servers and ORP. With the bulk of the servers being focused on the vanilla game mode (Both PVP and PVE), and smaller amounts of niche servers which could be increased based on player demand. The primitive game mode will be removed in favour of the Non-TEK Tier Servers.

    PC Asian/China Servers!

    The current Isolated PC PvP Asian Servers we have on our Official Network is hosted and provided by Snail Games. They have decided that with the launch, they will be taking down their legacy PvP Servers and relaunching them as part of the new Official Network. These servers will be included in our CrossARK Cluster, and therefore will be transferable to and from as opposed to being an isolated region. 

    ARK Legacy Save Files!

    Later this week, we will have both our PS4 and PC Legacy Save Files available to use. PS4 is expected to be here sometime tomorrow and will be accessible via hosting with Nitrado. Due to sensitive information contained in the save files, it is required to be accessed and hosted through a licensed third-party. Xbox saves will become available when rentable servers are available in September.

    It's going to be an exciting 24 hours! We hope you enjoy all the new content; we're super stoked to be launching Ragnarok on console and best of luck in the claim for land on the new servers!

    Good luck with the launch.  WIldcard clearly has a great game, but they are not reliable.  I think it's a safe bet that it will be a good 48 hours before all the servers are up, and following that there will be insane lag and the servers will be glitchy.  As of today (after most recent patch) the Obelisks were glitched, and there ended up being a rollback. And this, the day before launch...a launch that was supposed to happen 3 weeks ago.   They clearly do not test anything properly...they just rely on a community that they have lied to, and double crossed on numerous occasions, to test for them.  Yeah.  They are going to need lots of luck.  But mostly...we the players are going to need alot of patience...or maybe it's just time to call it quits all together.  There are tons of games out there.  Just sayin'.

    I would love to see u do better

    My server was one getting deleted. If your server wasn't deleted, you won't have to pay. If you're like me, though, and were hoping to have the save files to play on an unofficial dedicated server, then yeah, you'll have to pay Nitrado, because apparently there's "sensitive information" in the save files. I wish they'd just delete that "sensitive information" and give us the rest for free.

    I wanted to ask for the same thing  "Due to sensitive information contained in the save files, it is required to be accessed and hosted through a licensed third-party". 

    Does it mean i can't use save file in my own dedicated server? 

    WC promised players that they will be able to use saves in their own servers!!!!!

    Why not release the update earlier and let everyone download it. Releasing it at launch just screw up so badly with players like me with a poor internet speed. Downloading at 700 kb/s or slower for some others put us at a huge disadvantage in terms of PvP/securing base location.

    Very nice WC! I have been waiting for this day to come :)

    Doesn't matter what servers you delete or what game modes you save. You have done a good job so far. Cause when I bought the game I read and understood what "Early Access" means. So I knew I could expect some bugs and changes until the final game will be released if ever (so many Early Access games out there that might not ever get to launch).

    I have enjoyed the game for the last year. So if the Official version is not to my liking I at least had fun. But fingers crossed ;)

    I have just 1 question... Will you make a "better/upgraded" version for Xbox One X?
