Community Crunch 407: Premium Mods, LiveOps Update, and more!

Recommended Posts


As we approach the June release of The Center, as well as the ongoing remaster of Aberration and the future of Bob's Tall Tales, our team remains dedicated to continually improving the live game experience. While we are excited about our upcoming projects, we are also diligently working to enhance current gameplay features and content.




We have a major version patch in certification (this means a build has been submitted to Microsoft and Sony for testing) which will enable Premium Mods on console. Along with Premium Mods, we're looking forward to a load of fixes and some balance tweaks we've added in this patch. These include an oft requested buff to black pearls and Death Worms, a nerf to the overly excited Scorched Earth weather events, a fix for Bees, a fix for Thyla jump, Fire Wyvern breath tweaks along with general game fixes and dozens more. Hang tight, the patch should drop next week if it passes cert and get ready to dive into Premium Mods!

In the meantime, check out all our Premium Mods coming to consoles:





Download & play new custom content created by players, including new maps, creatures, items, and game modes, through a dedicated new Mod-bowser directly within the game. Enjoy an endless stream of new ARK content as the creativity and talent of the community is fully unleashed for the first time across gaming platforms and stay tuned as we spotlight more Cross-Platform Mods each week!

      So another week's wait or more for Bees? That's ridiculous. You might aswell open transfers for Scorched since you already let people get away with transfers through exploits. 

      How is it that even basic things such as a BP rate fix or allowing bees to spawn has taken so long? You should check your reviews, the game we love is tanking.
