    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!

    large.EvoEvent.png

    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

    Does this mean that Xbox gets exclusive stuff? I mean, we've been here longer and we still lack many of PC's content (mostly because we have to wait for a week or so) but PS4 gets exclusive stuff as a means of enticing people to buy the game. Not that the Cyber Rex skin or Manticore armor is very interesting. I just don't like how developers play favorites with the content they hand out to each platform. Like the Jade Rabbit for Destiny.  Are both of those items boss related items? Defeating the Manticore, and killing a Death Worm? And you just hand it over to any PS4 player who buys the bundle?

    Xbox got the Bionic Rex skin as an exclusive.

    And the Bionic Rex skin is equal to the Bionic Giga Skin + the entire Manticore set? That covers the exclusive part, but again...are they just handing it over to whom ever purchases the bundle?

    "Optional cross-play, including PS4, should come along shortly thereafter!"

     

    Does this mean Xbox gets the cross play with PC AND PS4 or just PC and PS4?

    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?

    Hehe already got em buddy #xbone survivor

    So when we can expect to play the Game we purchased on PS4. Servers giving me the message "Lost/timedout connection to host", not my fault. Internet works fine.

    When us Xbox players first got it, that same messaged popped up for a while. You guys will just have to hang on until, at latest, about Tuesday, or the next big update. They might do a small patch for that, which they probably will, but you should, again, have it by Tuesday at latest.

    Right now, it is just a PS4 exclusive. In the Announcement story of ARK on PS4, he commented that when the full game is released, no platform will have exclusives. Hang in there. I'm sure you'll live without the cosmetics. How do you think PC players felt when Xbox players got the Bionic Rex? Pretty pissed, if I remember the comments correctly.

    Can't create a server and have my friends join on and when I am in game I get a massive amount of multi color and the screen shakes would just really like to be able to make a private server that me and my buddies can get on

    I still don't get why xbox and ps4 players get exclusive items. we only got a hat and an ugly saddle for a dino we barely use. 

     

    REMEMBER THAT IT ALL STARTED WITH US 

    But the PS4 exclusives will be for everyone once Ark is released

    They are working on a Windows 10 version of the game that will be a "play anywhere" game. meaning you can buy it once on either and play on both windows 10 pc and xbox one. When that project is finished they want to enable cross play between the 2 along with w10 pc player hosted servers for xbox. 

    They also have said they want to make the ps4 cross playable with the steam version of the game but havent mentioned any purchase encentives or hosting info.

    TL:DR

    Eventually

    PS4 crossplay with Steam

    Xbox crossplay with W10 PC

    No Xbox to PS4 crossplay or Steam to W10

    Hey, how do I go into 3rd person mode on the PS4 version of Ark: Survival Evolved?

    I don't know if PVP servers are excluded from the 3rd person mode option like on PC but I'm playing on a PVE server and it says that 3rd person mode is enabled but I cant figure out how to do it.

    You'll have to do something to get it like we did the Rex. You'll probably have to collect all the dossiers etc.
