The June Survivor League Championship matches will take place on 11 am EST to 2 pm EST on Saturday, July 2nd, with a bounty of more than $65,000 in prizes to the winners! The Semi Final match for the Season One: Summer Cup will take place on Sunday, July the 3rd at 11AM EST. For all the extra details, check out the announcement we made here: ARK Digest Q&A! Here is our question and answer session with Lead Designer, Lead Programmer, Co-Creative Director of ARK: Survival Evolved, and Co-Founder of Studio Wildcard: Jeremy "Drake" Stieglitz! Survivor, Deaner, asks, “With the Allosaurus on the way, two of it's abilities the alpha pack leader and the bleed effect are big things for it. Are we going to see both of those things added with the Allosaurus and possibly see the alpha pack boost for the Dire Wolves and the bleed effect for the Megaleceros at the same time? Survivor, Zadira, asks, “In a previous digest, changes to pillars and other building structures were talked about that would help the problems that we have in pve. Is there an update for the status of those changes?” Survivor, Emanuel1721, asks, “Hey, can you guys make that "Demolish Allowed" structures automatically destroys themselves after 1-2 weeks of not being demolished, because there's a LOT of abandoned bases that demolishing would take hours, and they just stay there causing lag and blocking spawns (especially on the Xbox official servers).” Survivor, N_scheffel, asks, “I currently have to type in "r.bloomquality 0" and "r.lightshafts 0" every time I log in to avoid being blinded by light sources reflecting off most objects in the game (especially metal). Can that option be added to the current persistent graphics settings?” Survivor, Nahz, asks, “Are there any plans to make regular and prime fish meat better taming options for creatures that we already have in the game? Meat taming sea creatures has become a challenge now that megalodons drop prime fish meat instead of prime meat.” Survivor, Assassindude27, asks, “Is the "Industrial Grinder" the same thing as the mod?” (http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=534838287) Survivor, Tomtoyer, asks, “We will see in a future physical differences between females and males creatures?” Survivor, Aztec, asks, “Can you make it so that we can choose to craft items by multiples of ten instead of one at a time or the maximum number we can make, it gets annoying to click 20 times so i can make 20 narcotics or some other item id prefer if you only had to click twice.” Survivor, Ruenan, asks, “Hi I play ark on PC and Xbox one and was wondering if its possible, can we get all the sliders like the Xbox one version has for the server options in the hosting non dedicated and single player for the PC version? Plant growth speed, Spoil Time, all the Intervals etc.” and Survivor, Reubatina11, asks, “Is it possible that other options, such as breeding timers, egg incubation, baby maturation etc will be added as sliders to the Single Player startup screen? I'm playing on a Mac, and I'm struggling to access the INI. In addition, could we get options like cave flyers, Titan feeding etc added as checkboxes?” Survivor, Reubatina11, asks, “Will the Titanosaur ever be breedable? Could this maybe be a server option for unofficial PvE servers?” Survivor, Cleetuss, asks, “What other forms of illnesses do you have in mind? Will dinosaurs be getting them as well? Terrible as it seems, a herbivore with rabies sounds funny.” Survivor, Klaahn, asks, “Is Xbox ever getting the MaxStructurePlatformMultiplier option for servers? It's the one that always for more structures to be built on Platform Saddles and Rafts.” Survivor, RedStorm8616, asks, “Is there any way you could add in an Alpha Direbear? I ask this not for the variation in Alphas (which would be nice) but for the Bear Skin Rug that would be inside it's inventory -- similar to the Rex Trophy inside an Alpha Rex?” Survivor, Silvyss, asks, “Can we get a button for toggling snap points on xbox I know y switches walls and doors but I'd like a button to toggle all available snap points.” Survivor, Kody.Gloval, asks, “One of the biggest issues with building is the clipping. Is it possible to put something in an .ini file to disable clipping for a private server?” Survivor, Drklotus69, asks, “I see the phrase "that will come with tek tier" or some variation of that all the time in the answers portion of this segment. Is there any sort of rough ETA we can get for when tek tier will actually arrive in game?” Community Contests! ARKitect! This is an award given to Survivors to celebrate the amazing structures you build on PC or Xbox. These bases are judged based upon a number of different factors such as their creativity, uniqueness, how fun of a base it is, the difficulty of building it, the functionality it provides and much more!

    Whats going to be done with the teaming that happened @28 minutes into the game? I'm not allowed to say names because god forbid someone actually calls them out for breaking the rules. Most of the community knows who i'm talking about and that in itself should be enough proof to back this up. I myself have refused to play in a lobby with both of them in it. Enforce the rules like the moderator did to me or your going to lose credibility WC.

    It would be great if you guys added primitive servers where you were not aloud to fly on flyers, especially on some primative + servers it would add a much greater economy to the game and battles would be like they are in e3 and the photos of ark. It would be Awesome!!!

    Hello Survivors! We are very excited to share a titanic amount of news with you! Today at E3 with PC Gamer, we were able to reveal some of the upcoming updates coming to the ARK! First of all, let’s begin with what you’re all curious to hear about, our new gamemode… ARK: Primal Survival! ARK: Primal Survival is an upcoming Total Conversion where survivors will be able to play, live, and breed as any of the ARK’s creatures! Survivors will experience full survival mechanics and lifecycles, including mating, growing, recruiting more creatures to your ‘pack,’ even constructing primitive dens. Playing Primal Survival, which will launch later this year on PC and Xbox One as an Official Total Conversion, will allow survivors to experience; Live life as a Raptor, communicate and coordinate tactical attacks on other species. Spend your nights creepily crawling around the caves as the Araneo, catching your victims with your web spinning ability and spraying them paralyzing venom, while laying eggs to expand your brood! Work together as one to execute strategic attacks alongside your pack to chase and takedown prey! Train and protect your young through the harsh winters so that they are ready to join the hunt by the time they are full grown adults. Cuddle up with your cubs and forget about your worries and your strife whilst you spend the day fishing, wandering and roaming the land with your sleuth! Experience the ARK through the eyes of a Titanomyrma, building a thriving colony centered around ‘ant hills’, and survive against the elements and the dangers that the island brings! Furthermore the new functionality associated with this Primal Survival mode will also enable mod creators to build much more intricate mods involving playing as these various creatures and detailing their lifecycles & survival mechanics, with new capabilities for creating asymmetric gameplay modes. ;)! ? The Redwood Biome and Spotlight: Titanosaur! Releasing June 22 on Steam via the v243 update, and shortly thereafter on Xbox One, The Redwood Biome is an all-new biome filled with lush, giant trees sturdy enough in which to build treehouses and villages. Harvest lumber from these gigantic arbors to create your fortress super high up in the air, providing a safer place to to build a village as well as providing height advantage for a superb tactical defense stance, or tap into the massive redwoods to extract their sap for healthy concoctions. Also making its debut in ARK v243, the extremely rare Titanosaur (Titanosaurus Vagacastrum) is the largest creature found on ARK island, operating for many players as a mobile superfortress capable of ferrying obscene amounts of weight, structures, defenses and creatures upon its back. Essentially a walking mountain, this herbivore often crushes creatures and buildings within its path and takes issue with any creature invading his personal space. Primitive Plus Official Mod Launch! The second official mod, Primitive+, will launch directly within ARK: Survival Evolved on Thursday, July 28 for both PC and Xbox One players! Primitive+ explores the idea of what life may be like with common-day knowledge and resources provided by the land. It incorporates primitive tools and techniques that are still being used by indigenous tribes around the world today! Players are challenged to use primarily wood and stone without the benefit of advanced metals. A whole new set of items and detailed new mechanics focus the player on 'primitive' survival, which fits snugly in the world of ARK. Primitive+ will be playable as a functionality mod on all official ARK maps. The mod will include; - Over 100 primitive-themed structures - 3 ancient building tiers (adobe, lumber, brick & cement) - Diverse resource system - live off the land with 40 different resources - Primitive trapping system (deadfall trap / fishing traps) - Advanced farming - 10 historic crops and resources (Wheat, Barley, Coffee, Tea, etc) - 11 iconic weapons (Flintlock pistol, Musket, Viking Axe, Battleaxe, etc) - 60 types of food recipes to craft - Enhanced role-playing experience (market stalls for trading, meals, etc) With even more update and features to come! We hope you guys are excited for today’s announcements just as much as we are! And don’t worry, we’ve still got loads more exciting developments coming up this year, and we’re excited to continuing to work with you to create ARK: Survival Evolved and its many extended features! All the best, Wildcard Jat & the ARK: Survival Evolved Team

    I have to be honest if you're going to award money for that you are literally legitimizing their teaming and they will continue to do it EVERY single ladder game until the end of time if they cant get caught with 4000 people watching it they will never be stopped.

    Yep, 27:40 in-game timer, 43:45 on the stream.. and 18:58(like 52:30 on stream), not once but twice. With one having a big reputation doing it, and lots of evidence(I have old screenshots of invitations to join the teaming club), over all seasons, yet.. here we are.. watching this happen and wondering why WC is allowing it to happen.

    Camel-like dinosaur? Kinda looks like it's in the desert. Maybe taming it, if that's narcotic in the buckets? Or possibly taking the water out of it?

    Oo! Can we at some point have the ability to convert screenshots into little hangable photos like that one? Or maybe a Polaroid item in game? Would be really cool to hang little memories on the walls. =D

    Oh it's much more than that -- fishing has a very specific benefit to the kinds of resources you'll be able to get from harvesting the captured fish, in order to make it worth the time expenditure

    Now all we need is a Fishing Trophy Base for our biggest catches. I've seen some nice looking 3x Coel that'd look nice on my wall

    now you guys will have to add more fish and give us something to do with the fish we catch.... Aquarium anyone?
