      Note for players regarding Ascension (please open terminal/tribute before ascending)   02/04/18

      With the latest server update on PC (v276.493), if you're going to attempt ascension, before doing so please make sure you've opened a supply crate/transmitter/obelisk/ basically anything terminal/tribute inventories. It's a temp workaround to characters being lost when ascending whilst we're investigating character issues further.

      Official PC: Hard Turret Limit begins on 18th of February at 1PM ET   02/16/18

      On the 18th of February, at 1PM ET we will be enabling the hard turret limit on all PC Official Servers. This means that you will not be able to build over 100 turrets within a 10k unit radius. This will work on autoturrets, heavy turrets, tek turrets, plus plant turrets and is no longer map specific. The hard limit calculation is done on start-up, so if your turrets are ever over the limit, they will be randomly shut-off until you're under the limit. In order to restore shut off turrets, you must pick up any which exceed the number, as well as shut-off turrets and replace them in order for them to work.

ARK: Aberration Expansion Pack Announced!

Recommended Posts

After seen this trailer and preview via text, I must say I am quite excited for this expansion. I need to rush my game to be ready for this.

Great work, the queen looks particularly fantastic (assuming its the one that pops up from the ground). Everything about the environment looks new and refreshing, which is great. I personally loved Scorched Earth, and seems like the feat will be repeated once more. 

Cheers!

This looks great!  But I'm not getting it if it's ascension-locked.  I'll be "voting with my wallet" on that point; if I'm paying for something, I'm not using a cheatcode to access it, and I'm not jumping through hoops for it.  If it's not a normally-accessible Ark, I don't want it no matter how cool it is.

Ascending through the Arks is part of the story and how you progress from Ark to Ark.

Secondly, what a bunch of ungrateful whiners. Like holy poop. WC's release of Ark is no where near as bad a No Man's Sky or the GTA 5 online play fiasco. Grow up and be a little patient. Let's count off how many games WC has ever released. Oh, that's right. One. How many of you can execute a flawless release on the first time around?

@JatCan you please stop adding stuff untill all lag issues, bugs and in general stuff that needs to fixed is fixed. It makes no sense adding more stuff when the main game and maps that are already out are so rage-induring at times, especially the 255 ping issue on ragnarok, I lost 1 wyv and im sure many others have lost dinos

People that own Scorched Earth receive a 33% discount to the season pass.

Ahh... man, that could have been brought differently. I thought it was a generic discount.

Nice to see story-arc and story dlc being added. Because, after all, why are we here?

It's hard to ignore all spoiler videos right now on youtube :-(.

Will it be like I had thought? What is the reason? How many arks are there? Is planet earth a lie and just another succesful ark?

 

(Still hope you will soon have time to look at our linux platform bugs though... :-( Might be just missing textures)

This new DLC screams Pitch Black to me.

I hope that we can transfer from/to this ARK at some point or another. I wouldn't mind temporarily being trapped on the new ARK but I would be very disappointed if transfers in/out are impossible. Would love to use the wing suit on The Center and Ragnarok

May I suggest renaming this expansion pack to ARK: Systemic Error?

It's just that the main game is called ARK: Survival Evolved, and the other expansion pack is ARK: Scorched Earth, and I thought it was cool how they both spelled out SE. Systemic Error would also make sense from a marketing standpoint, as most people (including myself) probably don't even know how to pronounce Aberration. Hell, I didn't even know this word existed!

However, if you're too far in development, I completely understand it could lead to too much hassle. I still think it would be better that way, but the decision is completely on you.

Instead of bringing out dlc....work on fixing your damn game(dupes-which are still working..even in the new clusters) and game breaking glicthes...undermapping is still a big thing.. and work on optimizations....i dont know if u guys have been noticing....but...YOUR GAME IS DYING!!!YOUR POP IS DYING!! The stats proves it!

The name does fit though. Here is the definition if you are not aware 

ab·er·ra·tion

ˌabəˈrāSH(ə)n/

noun

a departure from what is normal, usual, or expected, typically one that is unwelcome.
