Recommended Posts


As we gear up for our Mighty Arrival this Monday, we're excited to share some additional thrilling news with you. Let us introduce...




Download in full resolution

We’ve long envisioned a place in ARK where players can converge, chat, relax, and have fun, irrespective of their tribe or whether they play PvP or PvE. A true social hub for all Survivors.

Now, that vision is becoming a reality. Saddle up and mosey on over to Club ARK, our brand-new social hotspot, riding into action next week! Dive into a stampede of ever-growing mini-games and missions, earning prizes, including items and dinos that you can take back “home” with you.

Additionally, starting with the June 17 update ‘Custom Cosmetic’ mods – including costumes, items, and even functional structures – will automatically be dynamically-downloaded in the background while you play, so you’ll soon see the worlds of ARK get a lot larger. This is toggleable option, of course!

Stay tuned and keep your ear to the ground for more on June 17th!


Give yourself a glow-up with Custom Cosmetic Mods in Club ARK! Shout out to two mods created by Cliffan featured here, Tactical Bunny Outfit & Sci-fi Wardrobe.





Conquest servers are being introduced to ARK: Survival Ascended by Snail Games. Conquest is a new PvP player experience for PC players which focuses on large-scale PvP while avoiding the problem of mega tribes. Increased rates will allow tribes to set up and establish themselves quickly and enable them to rebuild after potential losses instead of being wiped completely. The official Conquest servers start today on PC, Xbox and, Playstation!

If you need any support during the Conquest season, join the Conquest Enforcement's Discord.

I don't even really understand what that Club is. Is it a neutral community structure you can place on a server ?

Do we really need to keep inventing new things all the time, thus splitting the dev team even further between tasks ?


This will never not make me emotional.

I'm thinking it might be a custom map (maybe a modified Scorched Earth, judging from the artwork) that can be reached from the entire Official network. One with a prebuilt social hub/town.

God, can you imagine ? They would have postponed The Center's release just to announce a new (even if smaller) map right afterwards ? I would laugh SO HARD.

Honestly, if I had known Ark was gonna go down the MMO road, I probably wouldn't have bought ASA.

Thanks again for ASE. ASE was great. Lemme know if you get back into making survival titles!

Apparently, "poop" is on the no-no list despite there being an entire episode of South Park devoted to when and how it isn't a curse word. Just going with it.

I wonder if Island Boys ever got justice for that poopshow, not that I’d even be playing anymore if it happened to me

Nothing ever got done. There was no admission, no correction, no bans reversed … Snail/WC just played the ostrich card - burying their head in the sand and pretending it never happened.

Why would anyone want some goofy club that they’ll likely have to pay for when they can, you know, build their own on a server? Hell, back when I was running a PvE cluster we did exactly that. 
oh wait, guess they can’t do that on officials what with you guys never fixing the pillaring issue.

I don't like negativity when it can be avoided but to be real, this is one of the most stupid and pointless collapses of a franchise ever. The priorities are so out of whack it's genuinely absurd, you're focusing on this when we don't have any idea when Abberation will release? Focusing on another pointless thing no one asked for when your loyal community is dying? Focusing on adding more suspected micro-transactions when your game is BROKEN??? This Is moronic and you seriously need to change your direction before you fully shoot yourselves in the foot without a chance at saving face.

Listen to your community, that's how you get the money you so desperately crave.
