Community Crunch 345: A Day in the Life!


Recommended Posts


Welcome to another edition of the Community Crunch!

Since the announcement of ARK 2, we've watched the community's excitement and anticipation rise as we continued to work diligently in the background to define the new survival experience. Despite anticipating our next showing of ARK 2 to be a gameplay showcase, we see the hunger and eagerness for more ARK 2 information, and we get it. We’ve decided to give you a peek behind the curtain and begin showcasing more ARK 2 tidbits regularly as we lead up to the first gameplay trailer. We hope you enjoy these appetizers, and we can’t wait for you to get your hands on the main course ;)

As always, we love seeing the passion of the ARK community on display, and we look forward to getting more information in your hands beginning this week!




Introducing Stegosaurus: A noble guardian from a foregone epoch.



Introducing Brachiosaurus: An aloof behemoth. 





Creature submissions are still live until 1 PM Pacific on January 23rd!

Once the forum is closed for entries, we will round up the top 10 upvoted submissions and enter them into a second round of voting using RankedVote, similar to the last creature submission process.  We'll announce the timing in the next Community Crunch!

Check out the Creature Submission Guidelines for more information on the submission process and hop over to the Creature Submission Forum to see the current entries.

Thank you wildcard!! I hope Ark 2 comes out soon!! Also, the birds in the background of the brachiosaurus looks like ickthyornis…

Oh...looks like we're keeping the hell pigeons, boys! Also, WC has listened! The Brachi is finally a real creature!

Noooo. That stego is too much clutter, its not monster hunter. Tame it down to a normal stego lol. Brachi too...


Why the heck not? In a terrifying world filled with apex predators, our herbivores need some protection as well, right?

I can only applaud that you are finally telling us more about a game that is (supposedly ?) releasing this year. Even if for now it's concept art and not gameplay, it feels like a reason to be hyped. Concept art is fun. Behind the scenes in general is fun (and can easily be mentioned without showing too much of the more sensitive stuff). Glad that we're finally seeing this. Silence was really a bad strategy. Some answers to accumulating questions would be nice, too, but maybe that's for next week !

If Brachi was in an Ark, and maybe in Extincion or Gen 2 they comeback to earth.. why dont you add it to the game(Ark 1) 😜

Also the design is insaneeeee

They were, in fact, in Ark The First... in the ARKaeology ark event ! I wonder if the two other unique creatures of that event are also going to be in ARK2...

¡Oh... parece que nos estamos quedando con las palomas del infierno, muchachos! Además, ¡WC ha escuchado! ¡El Brachi finalmente es una criatura real!


¿Por qué diablos no? En un mundo aterrador lleno de depredadores ápice, nuestros herbívoros también necesitan algo de protección, ¿verdad?

I agree

You can do it with much much less. 2x note and 4x note stack with EVO. Next you should not be using R-gigas. They are obsolete. Newer dinos give much more xp at lower tame lvls. Players should be doing the killing, use a flamethrower, not dinos.

Thanks for the evo event! Is necessary when you need to hatch and kill over 25K level 500 baby giganotos to reach max level on official servers.
