    Happy Holidays from Studio Wildcard

    WW5_Promo_2_down.jpg

    As 2020 winds up--a year that has been eventful and challenging for all of us--we wanted to take pause and extend our heartfelt gratitude to the ARK community for the tremendous support you've shown us throughout the years. ARK is a community-driven game and you continue to put your dedication and passion on display daily. We pour our hearts and souls into everything we create. We embrace that passion so that we can continue creating epic entertainment for our players. Irrespective of who you are or where you’re located—if you’re a part of our evolving and vibrant community, you're a part of what makes the ARK Franchise what it is today. 

    Gaming brings people together across the globe. We're humbled that we can bring some joy and fun into player's lives, especially during a challenging year when connection and comraderie can help us all. 

    Poglin_Promo_1_down.jpg

    The 'Poglin' skin is a prime example of something born of community love, humour and passion. The 'Poglin' mask became a reality after the ARK community began to create memes inspired by the debut of the Noglin with the Genesis II teasers. Although the addition of the skin is minor, we wanted to show that the ARK community is major to us.  As we move forward to 2021 and the release of Genesis Part II, we strive to reciprocate the creativity, excitement and passion you've continually shared with us. 

    Speaking of excitement, we couldn't move onto 2021 without a little more teasing of Genesis Part II:

    Introducing the Maewing!

    ARK_GEN2_Maewing_720_STA.jpg

    Engineered to be the ultimate interstellar wet nurse and surrogate parent, in addition to automatically taking care of your babies, the Maewing can steal enemy offspring by luring their young in for an irresistible suckle at its bounteous teats!


    A 2020 wrap up.....

    Genesis Part I

    untitled-24.jpg

    February

    We launched Genesis Part I, a whole new chapter in the saga of ARK: Survival Evolved.  Genesis Part I created new challenges that have yet to be seen in prior ARK experiences! ARK: Genesis represented a new, story-oriented beginning in ARK’s epic saga of survival.

    You gained a robotic companion, HLNA, to help you overcome the simulation’s rigorous tests. You not only needed to tame and fight but you also had to adapt just as the environment around you does.


    Crystal Isles Launch / Epic Games Store Launch

    ARK_ISLES_Screenshot_08_1920x1080_down.jpg

    June

    We invited you to explore a new world, Crystal Isles, a supernatural beauty won the hearts of the ARK community since its debut as a mod in 2016.  Crystal Isles offered rainforest canopies, mysterious floating islands, and introduced three types of crystal wyvern for you to tame and breed and a new custom boss arena.

    ARK_ISLES_Screenshot_09_1920x1080_down.jpg

    With the launch of Crystal Isles we held an anniversary event that introduced new chibi's and skins.  In addition to the launch of Crystal Isles, we launched on Epic Games Store with a free-to-own week to give players another option for experiencing ARK.   


       ExtraLife

    EIdmh35X0AEtgZp.jpg

    November

    As we have done in prior years, we held a 24-hour charity event for Extra Life. During the stream we gave away Collector’s Edition boxes, and game keys!  We also gave away information about the upcoming DLC Genesis Part II and had special announcements from Jesse and Jeremy.

    Thanks to the ARK community, this years Extra Life turned out to be a huge success! We hit $482k lifetime donations as a team and
    $182,553.24 as a team in 2020 alone!  A huge thanks to the generous ARK community for helping us do some good for children in need.


    Tender Loving Care 3

    November

    We were able to launch our highly anticipated patch: Tender Loving Care 3.  When the opportunity presents itself, we like to go back and show some attention to creatures that may need more love or things that our community would like to see addressed. We were particularly excited about TLC 3 and the introduction of insect and wyvern breeding to the game.

    In addition to creature and balance changes, the community saw a rework of the taming UI.

    ARK 2 and ARK: The Animated Series

    image.jpg

    December: 

    Just recently we announced ARK II, a brutal new world of primitive survival against both beast and man, facing down the ever-present threats of hyper-realistic intelligent dinosaurs, aggressive alien fauna, and the exotic environments of an unearthly planet.  Survivors will continue ARK's dramatic eons-spanning story of humankind's evolution, in this next-generation sandbox survival experience!

    ARK2_Screenshots2_2.png

    To accompany the ARK II announcement, we announced a partnership with acclaimed director Jay Oliva (Batman: The Dark Knight Returns, Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox) to executive produce and co-showrun an original animated television series based on the hit video game ARK: Survival Evolved.

    From cutting-edge animation studio Lex + Otis and with music composed by Gareth Coker (Ori and the Will of the Wisps), ARK: The Animated Series chronicles the story of a mysterious primeval land populated by dinosaurs and other extinct creatures, where people from throughout human history have been resurrected.

    However you spend the end of your year, we wish you health, happiness and good fortune (and a lot of rest and nice snacks). Take care of yourselves and each other and we'll see you all in 2021 with a slew of hype and energy!

    All the best and happy holidays!

    So, I'm guessing the maewing will 

    1. act like the s+ nanny 

    2. be able to steal baby creatures (probs not anything after juvenile if we're acting on logic)

    overall good dino the side nips are weird but make sense

    I wanted a platypus creature in Ark for so long! Thank you! We don't know for now if it's a shoulder pet or rideable creature ( it looks like a shoulder pet more from the picture) but i'm good both ways.

    I hope there is still surprises like that with at least a few more creatures (sorry Wildcard🙏, i suffer from some sort of "pokemon childwood syndrome" .... games never have enough creatures for me😱😱😱😱). For now we have four knew organic creatures: noglin, maewing, astrodelphis and shadowmane (different between male and female). One confirmed tech creature: the stryder, with numerous attachments, and one unconfirmed creature, some kind of mech seen in the first genesis 2 trailer. That's already nice, but since the DLC will release in 3 months, may be we don't have seen everything yet 😳

    I’m noticing something, the word ENGINEERED we think Rockwell has been doing that, but this guy appears to be not in his garden, rather in the eden biome.... it also appears not to be very element looking... i don’t belive this is Rockwell’s creation... so... what... was the creatures on the ship made to be usefull by the creators of the ship? If not, who engineered it?

    If I had to guess, I would say this creature was engineered by whomever initiated the Genesis protocol to help sustain animal populations on the Lifeboat during it's interstellar voyage.

    PLEASE GIVE US NAME FOR THE F.E.D.S.S (Floating Eyeball Demogorgon Screaming Squids) BTW I think I'm gonna nickname them that. I still feel like Helena with her FSBMM (seekers). And yes I added an extra S for screaming.  I also am hoping Astrocetus will be on this map as it's kinda awkward to release another new space creature with no friends while floating. About the Maewing It will probably be somewhere in between rideable and shoulder pet as imagine a baby Tyrannosaurus Rex trying to nurse from a tiny platypus. PERRY THE MAEWING?!? What are you doing here as I type? OUCH!!!!!!!🦦😋😋😋😋😋

    I'll be honest, I prefer the Maewing's design to that of the Noglin. It's in line with why the Velonasaur is one of my favorite sci-fi creatures : as imaginary as it is, there's a prehistoric feel to it.

    I'm afraid that for PvE players (and even more SP players, yes we exist, please remember us in your further endeavors ?) will not have as much use of it. We are a peaceful people ! Unless Gen2 creatures start having offspring in the wild (which... don't get me wrong, I'd be game for that), we don't have enemies. Unless you're not telling us the whole story just yet, of course :P

    Happy holidays to the team :)

    Umm how would a tame that raises your babies for you not have a use in pve? Sure it won’t steal other babies in pve probably but not seeing how you came to this conclusion.

    I didn't say it didn't have a use at all, I said "not as much". As in, some functionalities will only benefit PvP players. At least, unless some creatures in Gen2 do have offspring in the wild, which is always a possibility for this ability to become universal.

    Please study wildcard can put a small update and this update implements the following things: firstly, the ability to reproduce the following creatures: the Rock Drakes, the Basilisk and the Karkinos and other non-bredeablee creatures except rock golem, rubble and lava. golem. since they are not "animals" but the creatures already mentioned above are technically "animals" and for some reason they cannot reproduce which does not make sense., thanks for your attention
    
    
    postscript: I'm asking you this because I love to do color mutations and it annoys me that I can't do color mutations with certain creatures.

    So looking at the pic, you can see bits of grass and stone around it, so unless there is giant grass, then I’m thinking it’s a sholder pet.

    Yes it may be the only way to tame X creature, also, this will all ways be true with nearly any critter, anything aimed  towards PvE will also be useful  PvP cuz PvP is PvE but with fighting other players. And sometime features need to be added for PvP, and as it is still useful PvE I think it is a perfectly designed creature, and even if you could only tame X with it, it would still be more useful PvP
