    Welcome to the ARK, PS4 Survivors!

    :Jerbhi:

    PlayStation Survivors! This is it! This is where your open-world dinosaur survival fantasy finally comes to life. ARK: Survival Evolved and its expansions are now available for download from the PlayStation Network store. For those of you who are new to the community and the game, here’s an initial visual primer on what ARK's all about:

     

    ARK: Survivor’s Pack will be available for purchase in many regions across the globe. This bundled offering includes both the base game, ARK: Survival Evolved, and the massive desert-themed expansion, ARK: Scorched Earth together! Survivors based in the American region will have to wait a wee bit longer as the game will become available for you on the 6th of December at approximately 11AM Eastern Time!

    The ARK: Survivor’s Pack gives PS4 players an up-to-date version of ARK: Survival Evolved that includes the previously released content, plus Scorched Earth -- ARK’s first Expansion Pack. The Survivor’s Pack adds extra PS4 content including a Bionic Giganotosaurus skin plus an entire Manticore armour set for male and female characters.

    PS4 ARK players can expect to receive a constant stream of major updates between today and our ultimate “content complete” point next Spring. We plan on adding many more creatures, weapons, armour, game mechanics, as well as plenty lifestyle improvements (UI Update anyone? ;) )! Please keep in mind that by joining ARK, you’re joining a work-in-progress game with a passionate community of players, and true to its namesake the game will continue to “Evolve” over its long lifetime.

    In fact, if you’ve been keeping an eye on ARK’s social platforms you may have noticed your first patch is already on the way! Primitive+ and a bundle of fixes will be rolling out starting Tuesday through the end of the week across all regions. It took a little longer for it to get through certification, sorry about that hehe ::ARKLove::

    Though that’s not all, in the weeks and months ahead you can expect to see some awesome new additions to the ARK, including new features as well as a tonne of new content. The ARK will be undergoing a complete redesign and expansion of its underground cave systems; a whole new tier of weapons, structures and items dubbed the TEK Tier; further increased game performance and optimization; per-pixel canvas painting; infinite customizable Procedurally Generated ARKs; new systems such as hair customization and the “Ascension” end-game cycle; limited-time holiday events, and of course you cannot forget an expanded menagerie of wondrous creatures.

    One feature we’re incredibly excited to bring to PS4 and Xbox survivors early next year is the concept of player-run, PC-hosted dedicated servers. These servers will have higher maximum player counts and a good deal of customizable settings, for hardcore server administrators to tune everything to their liking. We’re working on it, and so far it’s looking very promising! Optional cross-play, including PS4, should come along shortly thereafter!

    To celebrate welcome PlayStation 4 Survivors and the opening of the PS4 Official Survivors, Survivors across ALL Platforms will be receiving a special Evolution Event perk! Starting from Tuesday the 6th of December at 12PM EST until Monday the 12th at 12PM EST all Official Servers will be undergoing this evolutionary change:


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


    So hop on, meet new friends and enjoy the game together with our ever-growing band of survivors! We hope you’re as excited as we are, it’s going to be a wild adventure, filled with content-packed months, and we want every one of our Survivors along with us! After all, evolution is best served by genetic diversity, and life finds a way… ;)

    All the best,

    Wildcard Jat & The Studio Wildcard Team

    That all sounds like such good news Jat.  With Primitive+ rolling out to PS4 later this week, will it include the fix to wall snap points and the new wall textures Ced mentioned last month?  When are these updates coming to the PC and XBONE versions as well?

    I cant join a friends server (non dedicated)

    i type the name of their server in and nothing shows up other then 1 time and the ping was 9999 and wouldn't join which I find hard to belive since we live around the corner from one another and are able to play every other game together.

    That'll be on the way soon. It's still under development, but I think Cedric plans to roll out to PC this week and if all goes well, we'll be planning on getting it to console ASAP :)

    I don't know 100% but I would have thought so because the game is released at the same time in the US, as opposed to Oceanic/EU that was spread over a day.

    I can't wait to get the game I do have a question though. Will the bundle that includes all the expacs that costs $55 (Us Dollars) be available till the end of earth or is it a limited time offer since it just came to PS4? Curious because I really want to get it but i really need to wait till i get my next paycheck or I'll be putting myself in a bind lol. Thanks for the help :D
