  1. Given the situation in the US, and the rest of the world right now, we will be rescheduling the ARK in-game celebration until Thursday, June 11. We understand that our community has much anticipated the ARK in-game party and the launch of Crystal Isles, and we're looking forward to sharing all we have prepared for you next week. We felt it would be inappropriate to celebrate milestones during the present time as there are bigger things afoot, and that outweighs any plans we otherwise had. We believe now is the time to be respectful and hear the voices of others. Studio Wildcard

  2. Download in full resolution An Update on G enesis Part 2 As we gear-up for the epic conclusion of ARK: Survival Evolved’s storyline with ARK: Genesis Part 2, we’re checking in with the community on its progress. Near the beginning of this year, the studio transitioned to working remotely. While the development of Genesis Part 2 has been ongoing throughout, and significant progress has been made, going from a highly collaborative in-office workflow to remote comes with specific challenges. Upon further evaluation, we now have a better sense of the production timeline for Genesis

  6. A Message from the Founders Hello Survivors, Jesse and Jeremy here! We know things have been a bit quiet on Genesis news for the past few weeks, even though there is much more to show you, we’ve been deeply immersed in the pre-release development process. That being said, we’re writing today to tell you that the final release date for Genesis Part 1 is now February 25th, 2020 simultaneously on all platforms. This additional delay will no doubt come as a disappointment to everyone who is eagerly awaiting Genesis. We’re extremely sorry to push it back an extra month, but as we hav

  16. Greetings Survivors! Zen Rowe here again, back for another spotlight on our glorious modding community. Today we’re going to be talking to Kiwiboys! Who are you and what do you do? That's a pretty intense modification. ARK itself doesn't really have much in the way of existing mechanics for you to tie into for that kind of system, right? Making mods can definitely be an exercise in creative solutions. May I ask about your background? Does your education or personal experience tie in well with helping you design the overall system or influence the direction

  46. Recently we launched a new initiative, Classic PvP, which aimed to bring back the original days of PvP. These early days were full of fun and engaging battles with limited technology and an emphasis on the primitive aspects of PvP. Recent feedback from the community suggests that Classic PvP is a good start to reimagining early PvP but there's still more you'd like to see. When we originally launched Classic PvP, we launched it with a seasonal-based concept in mind. The idea of implementing a seasonal-based approach in an ARK game-mode was as enticing to us as it was to the community. O
