    Mysterious Mysteries: Introducing ??????? & ARK News

    Hey Survivors! Welcome to ARK News! :Jerbhi:

    We are unfortunately crunched for time this week and won't be able to write up a proper Community Crunch. But here is what's going on in the world of ARK!

    Mysterious Mysteries: Introducing ???????

    large.Dossier_CaveCrabTorn.jpg.6a9f88db9

    What an intriguing discovery survivors, can you guess what creature it is? 

    Aberration Update!

    large.AB_5.jpg.d3cc2e82b953b4a1904423212

    You may have noticed many of the developers on social media have been more quiet than usual, and that's because the team has been making incredible progress on Aberration. We know that you're all eager to hear a date for Aberration release, it's coming! We'll be updating our release date and sharing it with you all very soon. Everyone will be able to visit and enjoy the world of Aberration before 2017 is out.

    Xbox One X Release!

    On Monday we released ARK on the Xbox One X with enhanced graphics (HDR, True Sky, Detail Mode and more) for Day One of the Xbox One X launch. Check out the comparison video below!

    We also released our newest live action trailer! Revisit the ARK island as our hapless new survivor now "Respawns" and finds an unlikely friend. Produced by the award-winning PIXOMONDO team, including Executive Producer Mandie Briney, the VFX Supervisor from Game Of Thrones, Sven Martin, and CEO Thilo Kuther.

    Xbox Play Anywhere & Crossplay Update!

    large.593ee5fb07123_SteamARKKeyArt.jpg.5

    We are currently in the final stages of testing the Windows 10 version of ARK, which will bring with it Crossplay between Xbox and the Windows 10 version of ARK on PC. We expect the update to be available in Early December after it goes through a submission process (cert) similar to console, which is a multi-week approval process. We're very excited to get this out to players as we know you have been waiting and are eager to experience it. We'll keep you posted as it enters and processes through cert.

    Rentable Xbox Servers & Official Saves!

    As I am sure many of you are aware our rentable servers update cleared certification and went out on Monday. Since then many have asked when their official save data will be available, as it can be hosted via Nitrado on your rented server. We will be working on this over the weekend, and will provide a link here on this post as well as on Twitter once the process is finished. This will include all of the legacy PVE servers on all platforms. (We cannot provide PVP servers, as it would give unfair advantage to people playing on those servers by allowing people to snoop through others bases with the save files.)

    Want to host your own server? Check out Nitrado!

    NA Season Pass Skins!

    large.ReaperHelmet.png.53d7f35b0b5c05719 large.PugMask.png.32230aca31ed2a57b1f5a7

    While Season Pass skins are already available to most, they are not currently being awarded properly to those under Sony America. Sony NA will have the Season Pass skins working soon, hopefully on 20th of November. It should be a relatively easily fix, they just have to process through their backend with the current build. Once that happens, you'll be able to sport your Reaper Helmet and Pug Mask all over the ARK!

    Console Ragnarok Update!

    large.59850bdd16e8a_Ragnarok01.jpg.39799

    For our console Survivors curious about when they will be able to get their hands on the most recent desert Ragnarok update, an upcoming patch will be coming in December that will bring it line with current spec of PC. 

    ARK: Evolution Event Weekend!

    large.EvoEvent.png.eeb58694dd9d4cb1e3459

    Survivors across ALL Platforms will be receiving a special Evolution Event perk this weekend! It's already live now and will remain active until Monday the 13th at 12 PM EST. All Official Servers will be undergoing this evolutionary change which includes:

    2x Harvesting Rate
    2x Taming Rate
    2x EXP Rate

    That's it for this post guys! As always if you’ve got anything to share please get in touch and be sure to follow us on:

    RAGNAROK UPDATE NOT COMING UNTIL DECEMBER for consoles? 2-3 months after the PC update came out? What happened to keeping consoles in line with PC? NTM Aberration is massively delayed. Consoles won't see that poop until spring. WILDCARD has the laziest worse Devs in the Pro gaming world. DON'T BUY THE DLC UNTIL ITS ACTUALLY OUT! See if you actually want to play it in 2024.

    I’m sorry but I don’t see you making the biggest ark map perfectly AND with the best graphics yet. Oh yeah, they are also making 3 layers. If you’re going to hate on the devs you don’t deserve their hard work.

    They're not giving it to you for free. You show your gratitude, as a customer, by giving them your hard earned  money. As a customer, it's perfectly reasonable to expect that the product gets to you on the date the product was advertised for release when you bought it.

    Ok, so if we want to play cross-platform, we have to purchase the Windows 10 version even if we've already got the Steam version? 

    Yes because Steam =/= Windows 10.

    Only Windows 10 can play across platforms with Xbox.

    What is funnier is you guys think it will be actually released by end of 2017. What happen to October? Yeah do not believe a word they say ever. They have broken more promises and dealines in two years this game was in beta.

    I'll be shocked and pleased if aberration releases this year. I'm predicting a mid-end February 2018 release

    Hopefully the game will at least run smooth.eventually.   if it will forever be laggy I think I will give up on wild card forever.  Won't play a game if it can't be played.  Skyrim lagged horibly in cerain spots bit was fixed.   And is still my favorite game.

    The developers of the game went to zero conventions. So what's your point?

    Twitch Con. It's a convention. PGW 2017, Also a convention.

    Fits my estimates pretty well to be honest. I predicted back in September that Ragnarok will still be 7-8 months away from completion, and that was a very 'kind' estimate. Looks like it won't be complete for the consoles until spring/summer 2018, which is as bad as it gets, considering the map is an integrated part of the console versions. One that you can't just de-select if you want to complete all the achievements for the game.

    Re Ark: Play Anywhere, what does Windows 10 have to do with Xbox compatibility? I play other games with PS4 users and I'm on Windows 7. This is a server-side change, so why does it have to be Windows 10?

    Microsoft's Play Anywhere feature allows people to use the apps purchased from their app store on any compatible device, and said app store is only available on the windows 10 platform. In essence this allows people to play their Xbox game of ARK on PC.

    Thanks for the response. Leave it to MS to make cross-compatibility restrictive and difficult :\

    They delayed it because it either isnt finished or has gamebreaking bugs and I'd rather have a finished product instead of an unfinished product.

    I know that it needs to be polished but they had the whole of October+November to polish it. I would have been fine if it had come out mid november. At least they gave a final release date so im SLIGHTLY happier but yeah :Jerbcry::Melee_Damage:

    There's no need to go hating on the devs, they do a fantastic job. And as you know Aberration came out way before spring!
