To destroy/corrupt them. Rockwell is power hungry and enjoys that kind of thing. That said, it's not somewhere he'd want to go while he was still putting together his army in the GenSim and had only just started corrupting the real-life humans on the ship.

4. If Rockwell didn’t reprogram the ships destination why would we go to a planet of potentially dangerous and hostile sentient life forms?

Two possible reasons:

1. The ship was sent to a planet that was deemed probably habitable while looking at it from Earth, and was sent there. No one on Earth was aware of the danger actually present on the destination planet.

2. This was a second colony ship and a ship came before them to that same planet. The ship we are on was following the first which was already set up on the planet. Aliens/corruption reached the first ship before we got there.

Basically, it could have easily looked safe years ago when the ships left Earth, but a lot can change during long term space travel.

 

All that said, I don't think it's aliens either. At least not normal uncorrupted, sapient aliens. I could get behind corrupted aliens. Whatever is there is obviously hostile due to corruption. If it is corrupted, I think it's safe to say that whatever is on the planet is not Rockwell, perhaps the origin point for the original Corruption or just something else entirely. Regardless, it'd likely be hostile to everything on the ship, including Rockwell. It might be a kind of juggle for us choosing to deal with either Rockwell on the colony ship or Natives on the planet (I'm giving this temporary name to whatever the hell we find currently living on the planet since no one really knows for sure what it is yet)

Also, please take a closer look at the A in the newest picture. Whatever that stuff is, it does not at all look like anything we've seen on Earth. Even if it is corrupted, it's clearly something entirely different from whatever we've dealt with before.

Interesting idea. The element on this planet could be element in its natural form and coexists with the life on the planet. An amount of element could have then traveled to Earth by methods unkno

Actually the simulation doesn’t simulate where we are going. That was never it’s purpose. It was to get us ready for the extremes. Every environment and creature was taken to a extreme so we are ready

No idea on 1 For 2, I'd say at least a year after Genesis Part 2 is released, probably longer, but less than 3 years for sure. That is assuming that they are, in fact, working on Ark 2 after Gene

Yeah I noticed it was different but I didn’t really take the time to consider what it might be. This is kind of a wild guess but it is going off the homeworld theory.

Whatever it is still resembles the tentacles and spread of corruption to me. What if on elements homework element isn’t as hostile? What if it is per say a pure form of element. What if element become hostile when put in an environment it is not meant to be? What if humans instead of learning how to get rid of element learned how to purify it and use it? This would explain why in extinction it is element that “gets rid of” or in this version “purifies” the element?

1. We have no clue how long they could have been there.

2. We have no clue how long it takes one of the ships to travel to that planet.

Human cites have yellow lights They have red light  {also living under water?}<-might be a possibility 
 

 

And here’s a twist what if those light are our new volcanic biome

I totally agree with the first part, also I think it may be corrupted aliens AND non-corrupted Versions of them, unless we are going with element home world, also I’m fairly sure the A in the pic is Rockwell corruption... if you looks at the tendril reading for the player there are at least SOME similarities

We already as humans have colored lighting a city of a different color isn’t impossible at all. So we shouldn’t rule out humans for the color.

Also there are no signs of water in the picture so though I wouldn’t entirely rule it out it is pretty unlikely.

The element on this planet could be element in its natural form and coexists with the life on the planet. An amount of element could have then traveled to Earth by methods unknown which was then used by humans. The way we used it and everything else on Earth considered, it had to adapt into Corruption to ensure its safety.

At first I was thinking that the element would be acting too radically different from how it's acted in the past for this idea to hold, but looking at Rockwell reveals that element definitely does do more than just Corruption, so it's definitely possible.

I thought it over and actually agree a bit on the non-corrupted aliens possibility. Those straight lines connecting the different nodes of lights are too suspicious and heavily imply intelligent design was behind their creation. If we were in a colony ship, chances are that even if we are in a second colony ship, the first one didn't arrive long enough ago for people to build all that before we got there, which would mean aliens put it there before we had a chance to.

As for the tentacles, the ones chasing (following? He doesn't look like he's running but that might just be part of the reference so I won't read into it) the player on the catwalk definitely look like Rockwell's. 100%. 
But tentacles aside, all that strange stuff growing on the A logo are something unlike anything we've seen before. No corruption or element has looked like that in the past. It reminds me of the zerg

The reveal in november will be interesting for sure

Just as you said with it maybe acting too radically different, it adapted. We have to remember though element doesn't have a definite form it is a intelligent, thinking, feeling, and powerful thing. Just like humans it will adapt and do what it must to survive.

Also don't forget that we are working within a span of 10s thousands of years according to Helena.  Human civilization has taken 6,000 years to hit the point it has from 0. With pre existing technology and the resources and intelligence needed that development could happen FAR faster. Also if we say that there are 2 ships and they were sent a few hundred years apart(It may have taken them that long to build ships and plan their course on that scale.) It would leave enough time for Humans to build cities like that.

Yes, but however it is interesting that different groups have different light colors, maybe depending on natural fuel available, or different groups that separated(war-zones?) Or maybe diffrent breeds altogether with different tech.... also what really confuses me is the lack of water, judging by the original poster with that sea lion or whatever.... seamed like there would be a large amount of water involved...

Hmmm pure element, maybe... maybe Rockwell intends to invade element and turn it against itself? Then to corrupt it all.... this would be intresting

as said later maybe the first ship arrived early, and I ment tenticals in A kinda seamed like Rockwell’s, also I think the ones “chasing”, may be Rockwell driving you of the ship? Maybe so you won't interfere with his plans elsewhere? Yes November will be fun..

Yes...

 

I think I agree with home world, or humans... though it may just be alien planet that was also affected, but I’m guessing it’s just not humans colonizing cuz why would Rockwell go there, instead of the element home-world, and the general theme of ark doesn't suggest colonization, it’s element. themed I’m leaning towards element home-world... but still maybe aliens

 

 

also what if this is still earth? Like just gone even more wrong and weird...

yeah that, as well as the bottom right corner of the first poster and the lower part of the A in this new poster all give me ocean kind of vibes, like coral or something in the deep ocean.

Check one of my previous posts on the past pages.

Aliens are already a thing in PixARK Skyward, and we know that wildcard loves to share its ideas to its spinoffs.

This is literally the same theory I had last year where I theorized the forthcoming of our first human "NPC".

Notice that at the top of the teaser there...

HOLY SH*T. I THINK I'M RIGHT!

There have been past theories made by me about going to the moon in ARK, and this is the "... nail in the proverbial coffin." for me.

At the top we can see a planet dotted with red and purple. The purple is most obviously element corruption. What planet do we see element corruption on? Well, Earth. And for the mass amounts of red?

Well then, you may ask, what about the land that WE the PLAYER are standing on? The moon. The shattered moon, similar to the one we had experienced in the Genesis Simulation. I hardly find it to be a coincidence that shattered moons orbiting an obscured planet (Obscured for obvious reasons) keep popping up. A destroyed moon back on Extinction, a destroyed moon in the Genesis Simulation, and another floating, shattered space-rock bit shown in a teaser for Genesis Part 2. 

But wait... Something is off here. What we see in the teaser is... A race track? What? It looks exactly like the terrain on the moon, but it extends into the sky?

Wait, wait wait... Those racing missions from Genesis can't be just for nothing... What if, sometime during the events of Genesis Part 2 we are being chased by Rockwell or one of his "Infected", and we have to race on this "Lunameg" (Name by me) away from the tentacles? Maybe the moon has been turned into some giant-scale playground for some reason, maybe by the humans?

I again, find it hard to brush this off as a coincidence:

One of the most RECURRING themes in the last 2 STORY ORIENTED DLC (Extinction and Genesis) is COMPLETELY unsolved! (Why are all these moons destroyed??)

Let's take out the "Apocalyptic" scene from Ab's ending. Now we have this: Our survivor journeying through the wasteland of the planet, eventually beating the Mecha King Titan and being greeted by the ending cutscene of Extinction. We then wake up in the Genesis Simulation being guided by the fading, yet still tangible Helena Walker as she creates a Holographic AI companion to aid our survival. We then pass the simulation and get abducted by a tentacle. (Weirdest sentence I've ever had to type in my life)

(We dunno what happens afterwards, so just imagine the rest of the cutscene playing out. What happens? Tell us!)

(Events of Genesis Part 2?)

We then wake up on a "new" Earth- an unimaginable hell of magma and... volcanic activity.

(Events of Genesis Part 2? Kinda hard to fit into a timeline so that's why there are 2 places that say this.)

MAYBE, all of the mini biomes we see in Genesis will become separate DLC.

Bog: ???

Arctic: Arat Prime perhaps??? Dunno if Arat Prime is on Earth at this point lmao. Oh wait, it is. On the other side of the planet from Extinction. Maybe that means snow?

Ocean: Gen Part 2?

Moon: Gen Part 2.

Volcanic: Apocalyptic cutscene from Ab's ending. Hell on Earth.

Maybe a few of these will be combined into the same, who knows? Would make sense to me.

@ArkTheoryApprentice Where is this moon you keep talking about? I checked both teasers, no shattered object. If you referring to the land see in the teaser take a second look. It’s edges make a ring shape which we know to be the shape of the colony ship. Meaning it’s almost certain that that isn’t a racetrack or a shattered moon but rather the colony ship.

Random thought - what of in the days leading up to the Extra Life event there's another random countdown that plays the GP2 trailer when it's finished? Like what they did with GP1.

I want that to happen so bad. If they do it I hope its like the GP1 one with the clues that require people to decode the mysteries.

For some reason I doubt that what we are looking at is in fact the colony ship. Though it may look circular, I don't see it that way. In my eyes, it's flat, and the 2 pillars are a light effect as they fade into the piece of land if you look close enough. They're reminiscent of the ascension light at the end of Extinction. Also, the terrain on the land that we are on features rocky bits all over, like a reworked abberation surface or a reworked lunar Biome fragment chunk. There are also Tek structures similar to the ones from genesis littered around- but everything is the same grey tone so it's pretty hard to make out. I've found a few other things in the picture that seem important... Will share soon.

Though I would assume that the Tek catwalk we are on may be a part of the colony ship. Whos saying that it can't split itself up into smaller pieces in space or something like that? Also remember that I think the ship may have crashed, as it braces for impact at the end of gen p1, as it closes it's windows with heavy alloy and blares an emergency beeping.

Also a few things to notice: At the very bottom right of the planet (Earth?) you can see bright red and crack effects. And the red dotty areas are connected by straight, dotty paths if you up your brightness. I'm starting to doubt the story importance of this creature, as "Your New Ride" may just imply that the Lunameg is just a really nice new mount.

I'm still convinced that it's in fact, the colony ship, for multiple reasons:

First off, why would it be light ?  The "ascension light" you mentioned, shot out from an landed ark to clean up the weakened element. We're not anywhere near an ark and if the homeworld theory is right, there's element on that planet and it's probably not weak  either .  So it probably isn't that kind of light or anything similar.

Seccondly, the land fading into the beam of light can be assumed to be a purely artistic thing, as more distant objects have less detail. Not to mention that if you look closely, what you called the flat bit, is still arching. 

Last but not least, even before the teaser, we already knew that the colony ship probably has this ring shape, since the thing in the sky from the genesis ocean biome apparently is a look a like. Now, since our survivor, who wakes up on the actual colony ship, is also in the picture, i would assume that the ring like thing in the picture, is in fact the colony ship.

I'm not saying that the ship can't be crashing, but i find it a bit odd to assume, that the ship is doing the stuff you mentioned because of a potential crash when a rockwell tentacle appears almost immediatly after the alarms go off.

If u zoom in on the ring, it kinda just looks more like Tek structures, and less ruins
