Dunno about your thoughts on how well it swims, that's gonna be a 'let's see' for me, but as for water, there's plenty of water we can see at the bottom of the trench, which by my guess, is pretty big

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

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

In the trailer, I saw:

Brontos, stegos, pteros, compies, rhinos, dimorphs (i think, it was barely visible,) glow bugs, seekers, striders, the meks, and the tekuus (tek equus, the giant machine horse things.)

Also of note, the tekuus "ate" both rocks and trees.

Also, just noticed that one of the three pteros, was actually a quetzal.

I kinda thought the strider materialized itself out of thin air but then i noticed glowing tracks appearing on the ground before the strider itself was visible, so my guess would be that unlike the rock drake, the creature itself can be completely invisible, but it does leave visible tracks while staying cloaked

Yea I actually dubbed it a rock tiger because of its similarity to the rock drake before I remembered it had a temp name already

By the way everyone, the genesis chronicles are back !
We got five new notes to find ( although i'm honestly not sure where to look ) and the set of skins we're gradually unlocking this time is called "Federation exo suit".

Also, for everyone who has the genesis season pass, there's a free chibi for the noglin.

I think they are all on the island ? I'm still not sure where though
EDIT: They definitely are on the island, in the explorer notes tab they are present when reducing the notes to the island, so they gotta be there somewhere
PS: Don't forget to equip the HLNA Skin since we needed it for the last chronicles too

Nice that you got it. I dont have the exact location because I was speeding by with leggings at the time so by the time I noticed it, I had already passed it.

I'm not sure if it's that helpful, but i thought we could analyze the trailer better with it, so i decided to write down rockwells speech from the trailer:

Welcome survivor.

Enjoy the view.

You see before you the pinnacle of mankinds ingenuity.

All of humanities hopes and dreams, carefully nestled within this lifeboat, each of its shining rings are labeled with miracles of science and nature.

Paradise.

Where the boundary between the biological and technological has been all but errased.

 

And now all of it … is mine.

I control this vessel now.

I command its evolution.

And very soon its destination.

From there my will shall spread across the cosmos, forever.

Infinite and undying.

And there's nothing you or that witless puppet, that shadow of her, can do to stop me.

I have already set my designs in motion.

Our future awaits, survivor.

I honestly hope we don't spawn with Tek Armor... ARK may have extensive and rich lore, (Good enough to rival that of even FNAF's) but at it's core, it's a survival game. We'd be missing out on that classic cloth and hide, maybe even the chitin, flak and riot. If we're missing out on that, what else will we be missing out on? Spears? Thatch huts? Wooden huts? Mortars and pestles? Naw, that's not the ARK we know and love. Genesis bent the ARK norms out of order, and I just hope that Gen2 doesn't shatter the ARK that we know and always come back to. There has to be some other use for that armor. Maybe we DO progress normally, and the armor is late game, for example, after beating the final boss that could have stolen it from us at the end of Genesis? I'm pulling at straws here... Starting with "Refined" Tek tools, armor and weapons would rob us of a great Survival experience. I just dunno what to think- I need reassurance.

I just remembered this post after the reveal just know, they just confirmed that you're gonna spawn with a federation tek suit and that the map is also built with that in mind ( some places might require the jetpack to get to ).

Although they also said that it kinda works like a skin at the same time, so you can put on other armour too while keeping the functionality

I imagine it will have pretty low base armor so that survivors are still encouraged to "upgrade" while still receiving the benefits of a Tek Suit like Jetpack and Falling Boots. Atleast that's the only way I can really think of that would be balanced.

They said it is a skin, so it'll be a utility skin like the glider suit

it might even have no armor value since it goes over other armor, so you can upgrade without affecting the tek suit bonuses.

It makes me a bit sad because that means we can't use other skins with it though.

They just revealed the Rockwell's Innards biome too, and said that it's a core part of the story (like that wasn't obvious by the name.) Those eyes we saw growing out of the walls and floor earlier were all Rockwell's for sure.

Important thing to take note of:

1 of the two rings that preserve life is completely corrupted, while the other is untouched. You can see this in the teaser at 0:53 and at 1:20.
This isn't that Rockwell was unable to get himself out of one of the rings, as he's in the rest of the ship, and the rings are connected, so he has purposefully not touched the other ring. He has intentionally converted exactly half of the life preserving biomes, the Ark, if you will, and left the other half untouched.
I would like to propose the idea that he plans on leaving humanity as it currently exists alive, instead of corrupting every last person and organism that exists. Remember, Rockwell was using the GenSim to find loyal humans, but why would they need to be loyal if he was just going to corrupt them? They wouldn't.
