  1. Hey Survivors! We have so much on the horizon for the ARK universe and we don’t want to keep our community waiting any longer so let’s skip the preamble and jump right in! We are currently working on our expansive sequel with all our might! But we have postponed the release date to 2023 in order to create an adventure that will be unforgettable for everyone, respectful of our team’s health, realize the potential of upgrading to Unreal 5, and to introduce revolutionary full mod support for console players! ARK 2 will launch in 2023, simultaneously on Steam Early Access and as a console launch exclusive for Xbox Series X|S and with Xbox and PC Game Pass on Game Preview. We believe that ARK 2 will be the ultimate primal survival experience and want to devote the resources needed to bring that to fruition. When you finally take your first steps onto the beautiful and dangerous new world of Arat in 2023, we intend that it’ll have been worth the time to get there. You can now wishlist ARK 2 on Steam here! Suddenly awakened on a strange primal world filled with dinosaurs and humans struggling for dominance; you must piece together the history of how you arrived there, team-up with legendary heroes, and confront powerful dark forces seeking to control the fate of all life. Saddle up, and join the definitive next-generation survival experience with ARK 2! Every aspect of the ARK series has been rethought and redesigned in this sequel. Here's a sampling of the new features that ARK 2 will contain upon its initial Early Access and Game Preview release: Starring Vin Diesel ("Fast Franchise") as legendary ARK hero Santiago, experience an epoch-spanning adventure as he seeks to protect his daughter Meeka -- voiced by Auli'i Cravalho ("Moana") -- from the ghosts of the ancient past and visions of a new future. Fully stackable, user-created Mods for new creatures, items, gameplay features, and maps are now distributed across all platforms -- including onto Xbox -- and support for modded servers enabled through official mod support by mod.io! Here’s a little bit more information about this new technology partnership: "mod.io is a cross-platform UGC solution, supporting 11 game systems and stores. By partnering with mod.io, we are connecting ARK 2 with a complete ecosystem in which mods can exist, be presented, and accessed in-game. We’re excited to see our vision for Mods powered by proven tech, and deliver the best possible experience for players, everywhere they can play ARK 2." Advanced character traversal mechanics like mantling, free-climbing, parkour, sliding, and swinging! Target-lock, blocks, dodges, combos, staggers, special attacks, emphasizing player-skill-based action. Explore a mysterious, chaotic world where native flora and fauna are being overrun by invasive primeval creatures from an extinct Earth! Construct your weapons and tools from a range of distinct modules to customize their look and functionality -- millions of possible combinations enable you to craft your own unique gear! The specific materials you choose will further affect the appearance of your items, with multiple options of resources found in unique regions of the world. Natural and unnatural occurrences are always happening across the game world, independent of your presence! Your choices in deciding whether to interact with these events will yield rewards or challenges. Hostile 'Aratai' hunt & attack you riding their own tamed creatures, as they seek to drive human interlopers from their world. Instanced rendering and network-streaming enable much higher client and server performance for large, player-built structures, and a longer draw distance! Survivors can set up and save their own preferred building templates, share them, and place prospective template layouts in the world to then build them out as a team. No omnipresent radar -- animals now track and hunt by sight, sound, and smell! Hide from predators with visual camouflage and environmental obstructions, and learn to mask your scent! Dynamic pathfinding enables creatures to intelligently maneuver around obstacles and player-built structures. Gain both experience points from gameplay, and knowledge points by accomplishing key objectives and overcoming unique challenges, to progress along a massive skill tree filled with new active abilities, perks, and passive benefits. See foliage react convincingly to passing wildlife, water flow downstream around obstacles, volumetric stormclouds, localized weather systems, smoke and particles affected by physical forces, and much more! Fundamental advancement of lighting systems enables a more photorealistic day-night cycle, generating real-time ambient lighting & shadows within both natural and player-constructed environments! As we journey into the next evolution of ARK, Jesse and Jeremy reflected on the time they’ve spent creating ARK and wanted to include a personal message about ARK 2 to the community. The future of survival games begins with ARK 2 When we first released ARK: Survival Evolved in 2015, we had no idea how big it would eventually become. It was beyond our wildest expectations that 7 years later we’d be developing an eons-spanning narrative across multiple games, a TV series, and starring none other than Vin Diesel as key ARK hero Santiago. And yet here we are, together with our wonderful players who have stuck with the ARK universe through thick (RAGNAROK!!) and thin (FLYER NERF??), now having a canvas far bigger than ever before. That’s what ARK 2 is – the biggest canvas ever for primal survival experiences, a next-generation framework to play out your own survival stories. ARK 2’s main narrative tells the story of a father and a daughter (“Meeka” played by Auli'i Cravalho!), of betrayal & broken promises, and the strength of the family bond – and of course, it’s a story of badass giant dinosaurs. But even more importantly, this is about players’ own stories – like any good persistent-world online survival game, ‘Survivors’ in ARK 2 each have their own unique path through the game, as they form their own tribe, make their own friends, and attempt to build their own creature-aided civilization. With ARK 2, we’re seeking not only to enhance the game’s narrative and world-building, but also retouch and improve on all aspects of what constitutes an ARK game. Foremost among these redesigns are the core player mechanics. In the sequel, which is third-person-only, controls and movement for both players and creatures have been completely redesigned. Taking inspiration from game systems like Assassin’s Creed’s automatic parkour and Breath of the Wild’s climbing, player characters can now clamber over the environment in a more realistic and freeform manner. With a focus on primitive-era combat (Santiago and Tek have a ‘complicated’ relationship…), ARK 2 draws heavily from Souls-like action for its human-scale combat: an emphasis on dodges, blocks, light and heavy attacks, combos, and player-reflex skill – a rarity for the PvP survival genre. For creature-scale combat, suffice it to say for now that when you attack something with your T-Rex in ARK 2, the results are visceral: the animation of the attack actually hard-impacts on the target (not “passing through” it), the victim’s flesh is torn, and the target physically reacts at that location to the hit – all to convey the feeling of the raw power of such a ferocious creature! Another area that we’re particularly excited about is the World Event system. Rather than simply having a more-or-less static environment with easily predictable or repetitive occurrences ala ARK 1, the new World Event system is designed to ensure that unique things are always happening around the world, whether you are there or not. Events include procedurally-dynamic scenarios like watering hole gatherings, wounded creatures, tracking the signs of advanced prey, stampedes, herds, defending endangered creatures to earn their trust, finding dens of parent creatures and their young, and more. Whether you choose to engage with these events is up to you, and each can yield unique rewards and challenges. There are too many other areas of fundamental changes in ARK 2, whether it’s the new opposing-force ‘Aratai’ who have their own tames, the new Creature Management & proper World Map systems, the advanced component-based item crafting that enables players to choose exactly what their gear looks and functions like from millions of potential combinations, or the revamped build system which provides innumerable more building options and enables saving & sharing of build templates – or, or…well, there’s just too much to go over here! You’ll get your first preview of the ARK 2 gameplay down the road, and we think you’ll like what you see. Finally, saving perhaps the best for last, ARK 2 adds a revolutionary new feature for console players: fully stackable, user-created mods, including on unofficial servers, for the Xbox version of the game enabled through official mod support by mod.io! This means that players who create mods using the PC version will be able to upload them to the cloud and make them available for all console players to enjoy as well. With this, as we’ve seen with ARK 1 on PC, everything in the game can effectively be changed, improved, and redesigned: new creatures, new game types, new maps, new weapons & items, and mechanics (yes modders can re-add First Person mode ). With the power of Unreal Engine 5, the only limit will be the imagination of the content creators themselves. We’re super stoked to witness the mind-blowing additions that players will no doubt create in their mods and maps – and we believe that having all such user generated content playable on console in ARK 2, with complete cross-platform server integration, is going to change the nature of the genre forever. Put simply: with ARK 2, our goal is to make the game that we all wanted ARK 1 to be – now that we’ve had the time, resources, and knowledge to do it right. So in 2023 on Xbox & PC Game Pass, we’ll look forward to seeing you all in this new world of primeval creatures and legendary heroes. Just keep an eye out for Vin – he likes to play on his Series X more than you might expect, and his skill at wrangling a Giga is unequaled… Yours truly, Jeremy Stieglitz, Jesse Rapczak and the Wildcard team. ARK’s development has always benefited from external teams providing their expertise for ARK’s myriad of content and game systems. Whether it be Instinct Games, Efecto Studios, or another developer that’s partnered with us during the creation of ARK: Survival Evolved, we’ve always leveraged the amazing talent from external studios to create the best version of ARK for our fans. In that spirit, we’re partnering with Grove Street Games to co-develop ARK 2 and rewrite the ARK Nintendo Switch code with a full revamp of gameplay functionality, graphics, and optimization. Thomas Williamson, the Director of Grove Street, will be Development Director and Technical Director of ARK 2 with parts of the Grove Street Games team also joining ARK 2’s production in a development partnership. Jeremy and Jesse will balance their time between games and the expansion of the ARK franchise across multiple platforms and formats, with Jeremy focusing his creative efforts on the TV series and other initiatives, whilst continuing to serve as Executive Producer of ARK 2. Jesse will continue as Creative Director of ARK 2 and co-creator of the TV series. We are beyond-thrilled that Thomas and the incredibly talented team at Grove Street Games have opted to go all-in on partnering up to build the next iterations of the ARK franchise. By combining Grove Street's amazing capabilities with Studio Wildcard, we’re confident ARK 2 is going to be a mind-blowing experience! We know many of you have also been waiting expectantly for news on the Animated Series, and we’re so looking forward to being able to share more with everyone about it. The Series now has fourteen 30-minute episodes in post-production! To celebrate this milestone, we have released the first poster images of key characters from the show, available here. ARK: The Animated Series chronicles the story of a mysterious primeval land populated by dinosaurs and other extinct creatures, where people from throughout human history have been resurrected. When 21st century Australian paleontologist Helena Walker awakes on the ARK after tragedy, she must learn to survive and find new allies, or die again at the hands of ruthless warlords -- all while trying to uncover the true nature of their strange new world. Jay Oliva (Batman: The Dark Knight Returns, Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox) has taken on the role of Executive Producer, Director, and Co-Showrunner, alongside ARK franchise creators Jeremy Stieglitz and Jesse Rapczak, with the series being produced at Glendale-based Lex+Otis animation studio. Monica Bellucci (The Matrix Reloaded) and Dee Bradley Baker (Star Wars: The Bad Batch) have also joined the series’ talented cast. The show features an extraordinary voice cast, including Gerard Butler (300), Michelle Yeoh (Everything Everywhere All At Once), Madeleine Madden (The Wheel of Time), Devery Jacobs (American Gods), Deborah Mailman (Total Control), Zahn McClarnon (Doctor Sleep), Malcolm McDowell (A Clockwork Orange), Elliot Page (The Umbrella Academy), Ragga Ragnars (Vikings), David Tennant (Good Omens), Alan Tudyk (Rogue One), Karl Urban (The Boys), Jeffrey Wright (Westworld), Ron Yuan (Mulan), with Russell Crowe (Gladiator) and Vin Diesel reprising his role as franchise hero, Santiago. We look forward to sharing more news soon! In April we announced that Nintendo Switch would be receiving a completely rehauled version of ARK that will include enhancements and upgrades to bring it into line, visually and functionally, with the experience on Xbox One and PS4. Today, we’re happy to share an update on the progress and more information on ARK: Ultimate Survivor Edition! ARK: Ultimate Survivor Edition will introduce new story cutscenes to conclude each ARK map, featuring actors Maddy Madden (The Wheel of Time) and David Tennant (Doctor Who) reprising their respective roles as Helena Walker and Sir Edmund Rockwell. All of Helena’s and Rockwell’s Dossiers and Explorer Notes will also be voiced by the actors, as will survivors’ epic confrontation versus Rockwell on ARK Aberration. Madden will also voice the cheery robot-AI guide HLN-A in the "Young Explorer's Mode" that will lead players through ARK in a low-pressure, kid-friendly, dino-fact-filled adventure. We’re happy to show you what to expect in September, so Tune in at 1:30pm Pacific Monday, June 13, to /twitchgaming livestream to see the first gameplay of ARK: Ultimate Survivor Edition on Switch. Be sure to check out our previous post for more details on the upcoming update. Fjordur, the newest official ARK community map, released today on PC, Xbox, PlayStation, and Stadia! Free to download for all ARK players, this Nordic-style, cold-weather map features four new creatures to tame and over 140 sq kilometers of new biomes, new challenges, and rewarding discoveries! If you’ve ever wanted an easy selling point to convince your friends to join you on your quest for ultimate survival, there might never be a better opportunity! Head to Steam where ARK: Survival Evolved is free-to-permanently-own for anyone who claims the game before June 19 at 10AM PDT! This is a limited-time offer, so call your aspiring survivalists, tribe up, and join in on the adventure! It’s been an amazing ride as we begin to close out ARK 1 with the release of Fjordur and the upcoming inclusion of the Carcharodontosaurus. We’re so proud of what this game has become over these past 7 years with the passionate support and inspiration from our wonderful ARK community. With ARK 2 now on the horizon, we’re energized to ascend into a new generation of gaming. Unreal Engine 5 is empowering us to make the game everything it can be. Any Homo Deus would be proud to see it in action, and we look forward to having all of you come join us in the next evolution of the ARK franchise! The Studio Wildcard Team

  3. Download in high resolution Welcome to another edition of the Community Crunch! In the lead-up to the release of the Lost Island, a free DLC map coming later this year, we've been engaging the community and seeing what creatures you'd like to see on the upcoming release. During the first-ever official community vote, we saw a heated race as we narrowed down which creature would be one of the 3 new creatures that release with Lost Island. Although Dinopithecus emerged as the clear winner, today we may have an addition that's fairly familiar to the community and the final creature being added to Lost Island! Download in high resolution Sinomacrops bondei is a friendly and curious little pterosaur. It may approach and investigate unfamiliar creatures, but Sinomacrops does spook easily. When threatened, it will unfurl its wings to reveal deimatic eyespots in an attempt to confuse or scare predators away. Still, Sinomacrops seems to be a highly intelligent creature that craves social interaction. While it's normally curious and friendly, Sinomacrops' adorably oversized mouth turns into a deadly weapon at the slightest sight and smell of insects. Even alone, this cute little critter can take down insects far larger than itself. Unfortunately, this means that armor made from chitinous plates is going to trigger an attack response from the otherwise sweet-hearted pterosaur. Taming a Sinomacrops is fairly straightforward (in theory) -- just feed them without scaring them. Once tamed, they absolutely love travelling with their humans, and prefer to cling to them whenever possible. Not only are they sociable, but they're fiercely protective once bonded. Any small creature approaching someone with a tame Sinomacrops will be met with its flashing eyespots and piercing shriek. That’s usually enough to stun an undersized interloper. For such a small flier, Sinomacrops can carry surprisingly heavy loads. It can even support the weight of a fully-grown human adult, though it will struggle to gain altitude. Still, any creature companion that can double as a glider and parachute is invaluable for anyone traversing an ARK... as long as they bring plenty of snacks for their new friend. Download in high resolution It's that time where we introduce new projects in the sponsored mod program! Our first set of picks for the year is ready for you to enjoy.

  5. It's been another amazing year taking part in ExtraLife and raising money for kids in need! During our annual 24-hour ExtraLife stream, the ARK Community raised a staggering $184,502! The ARK community helped us reach new records this year. The Studio Wildcard team was the #1 team for most of Game Day and the highest we've ever been before (previously #3)! Additionally, we reached #2 on individual fundraising setting a new record for individual donations! This seventh year of participating in GameDay with ExtraLife puts us well over $400K raised and we couldn't have done it without the ARK community! We are grateful for our generous, supportive players, partners & sponsors, & the opportunity to help facilitate this endeavor. Here's a recap of everything you may have missed during the 24-hour event! AMD Nvidia GeForce Blue (Yeti) Corsair Elgato Xbox Discord Nitrado Grove Street Games If you've won one of these amazing giveaways, please be patient! We'll be in touch over the coming days!

Kicking off the stream, we have a chat with a representative from the UF Health Shands Children Hospital about where the proceeds go. Cedric and Zane stop to chat with a representative from ExtraLife. Alex Laurant, the Art Director for ARK 2, sits down with Cedric and Zane for a chat. Jesse and Gareth have an in-depth talk about ARK music composition and community favorites. Here's a sneak preview from the 7 hours of original Gareth Coker music found in the ARK The Animated Series: Jesse interviews Clayton D'Mello, an artist on the Studio Wildcard team. Clayton was given a unique challenge when Twitch chat was given the opportunity to direct Clayton's next creature design. The chat was given options and Clayton drew live on stream! Zane demos an early build of Lost Island on the Steam Deck ARK: Survival Evolved is fully functional on Steam Proton, which means it'll work right out of the box if you're lucky enough to get your hands on a Steam Deck! It fully supports the expansions packs, free maps, and mods. As of this week we've also got it working with BattlEye which means you'll be able to play on Official Servers or other BattlEye supported servers. Linux players can also get their hands on the Proton version by downloading the Steam Beta client and in ARK's steam game properties, make sure you've enabled "Force the use of a specific Steam Play compatibility tool", this will enable the use of Proton. In the future we'll be moving Proton to the default version of the Steam Game for Linux players, however we'll continue to support the native version which will be required for older hardware as Proton requirements are higher. At that time we'll provide further instructions on how you can switch to the native version, but for now it won't be necessary. Thank you for helping us reach our goals and supporting a great cause!

  6. Today, the U.S. Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade regarding abortion as a constitutional right in the United States. Studio Wildcard believes that bodily autonomy and reproductive rights are fundamental human rights, and this ruling heralds the erosion of American liberties. This impacts the lives of our employees, and we are committed to supporting their right to make their own choice and we are providing them with the healthcare and resources they need to support that personal decision. In spite of the Supreme Court ruling, U.S. voters can still protect reproductive freedom at the State level, and now it is up to all of us what happens next through our voices at the polls. If you are one of the vast majority of people who support a woman's right to choose, it's time to get out and vote. We have also donated to Abortion Funds (https://abortionfunds.org/). If you would like to support them, you can do so here: https://abortionfunds.org/donate. Listed below are several other organizations that you may consider.

In April this year we moved the Official ARK wiki to its new home and partner, ark.wiki.gg! Moving the ARK wiki has provided a more stable and streamlined experience for the ARK community to build its future wiki roots on. Since the move to wiki.gg the wiki team has been working hard to improve the way information can be displayed and accessed, and one of these projects is the improved interactive resource, exploration, and spawn maps! Update Your Links: Remember to help those who forget the new Official ARK Wiki home. Become an Editor: Help improve the wiki!

  7. Welcome to another edition of the Community Crunch! We are absolutely ecstatic about Fjordur launching in less than 2 days!! To help everyone get prepared for the occasion we're spending some time recapping the details of the newest free DLC map, including a new look at Fenrir, a mysterious wolf-like creature that's native to Fjordur! On June 12th at 10:00 AM PDT, get ready to traverse a fantastical multi-layered wonderland with a frosty Nordic theme! We've put together all the details that will prepare you for the launch of the free DLC map, Fjordur! All Platforms: June 12th, 2022 10:00AM PDT (17:00 UTC) PC / EGS: ~20GB XBOX: ~40GB Playstation: TBD Character Upload/Download is enabled Item/Dino Upload is enabled Item/Dino Download is disabled Please ensure to uninstall the Fjordur mod from the Steam Workshop prior to downloading Fjordur (if you already have the mod installed) Map Name: Fjordur Please ensure to wipe any servers that were previously hosting the Fjordur map as it has undergone significant changes that will impact the world. Much of what is known of Fenrir comes from tales passed down from previous Survivors but this elusive creature has managed to avoid being documented in the form of a dossier. What we do know is: Fenrir does not respond to conventional taming methods. If you are able to capture and ride Fenrir, you'll be able to freeze your enemies in their steps. Andrewsarchus makes its way to Fjordur packing an arsenal of utility! Andrewsarchus may seem sluggish while foraging for a meal, but they can move unexpectedly fast when provoked. Once tamed, its saddle will allow you to mount a minigun to the back of it! Click to view the dossier for Andrewsarchus As you might imagine, Desmodus prefers to hang out in dark places, waiting for its unsuspecting prey! If you're lucky enough to tame one, you can send Desmodus to snatch up small prey or saddle up and vanish into the darkness. Click to view the dossier for Desmodus Looking to dive right into the action, Fjordhawk can forge close bonds with humans as wholeheartedly as any canine or primate. A tamed Fjordhawk is a surprisingly playful companion that is very capable of fetching targets that you point out. A well-trained Fjordhawk can locate injured prey and communicate its find to you. Click here to view the dossier for Fjordhawk Acting as a functional weapon skin for the TEK sword, Mjolnir packs its own special powers and empowers Survivors with supernatural might. Devastate your foes with shocking ease as you exercise control over the element of lightning. However, not every survivor will pass the test and be considered worthy to obtain the mighty Mjolnir. Will you be up to the challenge? The launch of Fjordur also marks a new season of Conquest PvP.

  9. Welcome to another edition of the Community Crunch! This week we've made some changes to the Community Corner. In the coming week's we'll be turning up the heat with more information and exciting reveals of the upcoming creatures debuting with Fjordur! Lost Island Transfers On March 18th, we will be enabling full server transfers into Lost Island on our Official Servers across all platforms. Once enabled, players will be able to download items and creatures onto the map without restriction! We'll be releasing a patch for PC on March 3rd that will include over 70 fixes across all maps. Map/level changes tend to be quite big and we're expecting this patch to be a significant download so consider this a heads up in advance! We'll endeavor to give size estimations as we near closer to deployment. There will be no EVO event this week. Fan Art Gallery | Screenshot Gallery | Artist Feedback Form We've made some small upgrades to the Community Corner! We've seen our fair share of great art posted within the community and throughout the years, we've been honored to share that art using the Community Crunch as a platform. Going forward, we're applying a frame to the art we post in the crunch that includes the edition and date. Additionally, we'll be uploading these to a public community album to show the years of support the community has provided in one easy place. Every image in the album will contain the artist's name and source. If you're creating content for ARK, we want you to know we respect your art and appreciate your contributions to the community! We've created a form for artists to use when they feel their art is misrepresented or posted without credit. We're also adding a new section to the Community Corner - Community Stories! Recently, we held a competition in our Discord community for reaching 150K members. Members of the community shared their ARK stories for a chance at a prize. Considering we read so many heartfelt and funny stories, we made it a permanent section in the Discord and the Community Corner. So jump over to our Discord to share your own stories! krickiex89#8924 My Snow Dragon#5911 Creator: Sypher Sam Take a look at Sypher Sam's latest build - a castle port on Lost Island!

Will you be up to the challenge? Every year, during the month of June, the LGBTQ+ community celebrates Pride Month in a number of different ways. Across the globe, various events are held as a way of recognising the influence LGBTQ+ people have had around the world and the struggles faced. Why was June chosen? Because it is when the Stonewall Riots took place, way back in 1969. Pride Month is important because it marks the start of change within the LGBTQ+ community, along with wider societal implications. Studio Wildcard stands in support of the LGBTQ+ community and we would like to make an addition to the ARK: Survival Evolved Official Discord with inclusion of an opt-in role for our LGBTQ+ community members and allies. Join the Discord We continue to work towards creating an ARK community where all LGBTQ+ people are included, where everyone is free to play as their authentic selves and enjoy a space that supports self-expression. It is more important than ever to recognize that systems of inequity based on gender, race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, class, disability, and other forms of discrimination intersect and ultimately affect us all. We also support organizations that are driving change for issues that impact LGBTQ+ communities and, as such, we have made a donation to the Ali Forney Centre.Their mission is to protect LGBTQ+ youths from the harms of homelessness and empower them with the tools needed to live independently. AFC’s Founder, Carl Siciliano was named a White House Champion of Change by Barack Obama. You can learn more about them at https://www.aliforneycenter.org/ Please consider making a contribution to their efforts if you are able. You can also show them support by following them on Twitter We hope you enjoy your fancy new Unicorn Pride role and the rainbow themed dino color event we kicked off with our 7th Birthday! We look forward to continuing to celebrate Pride Month with the wonderful ARK community, and more cultural, environmental and social awareness celebrations in the months ahead! Happy 7 years of ARK! We are so grateful for our amazing community and all of your support. Looking forward to what the coming years hold in store! Help us celebrate with a hand-picked rainbow-colored event featuring a bunch of colors loved by you & 2x on all rates!

  15. Behind the scenes, we've been busy with the upcoming Lost Island map, new creatures, stability patches, and much more. With the live-game, we've identified an issue that results in a crash when releasing tames from cryopods on Player Dedicated and clients on Win10. We are working on a resolution and hope to have more news early next week! The recent voting process for the Lost Island creature submission was not only fun and engaging for the community, we engaged and had fun with it internally as well. With that said, we'd love to do it again! If you missed your chance to participate in the creature submission process you haven't lost your opportunity! We'll be opening up the entire process (submission of ideas, upvoting of ideas, narrowing to a top 10, and commencing a final vote) later this year for a creature that will be added to the game! We're excited to see the art and ideas from another creature submission process! There will be no EVO event this weekend. Creator: Syntac Tag along with Syntac on a brand new adventure.

  16. Welcome to another edition of the Community Crunch! This week, initially on PC, we rolled out a refactored version of the dedicated storage structure. Our impetus for doing so was optimization and performance improvements for dedicated servers. Previously, Dedicated Storages used to hold up to 1800 stacks of a single item. On a typical popular server, there are usually thousands of dedicated storage boxes across an entire save, many of which are filled with stacks. On some of our most populated Official Servers, we see save files with over 65,000 dedicated storages -- many of them full (these were PVE servers). As you can imagine, this is a lot of items, like... a lot, a lot. How does this impact our servers? In our worst case scenario, taking a server with 65,000 dedicated storages, let’s assume 70% of these are full; that means we’re talking 81,900,000 stacks, just from dedicated storage boxes alone. These all contribute to how well the server runs in terms of framerate, as well as the memory cost. Each ‘stack’ costs a little bit of both. So a rework was necessary, and the results have proven to be great! This isn't a magic bullet and you won't suddenly see servers drop half their memory cost or double in performance, but we are seeing significant gains across our network on all maps. Some savings are as high as 10GB on memory usage, which is pretty phenomenal! Additionally, this change slows down the growth of memory usage on servers, as previously it would exponentially increase with additional dedicated storage boxes. So here's how the rework 'works' under the hood: The idea of having 'multiple' stacks is no longer the case when using Dedicated Storages. When viewing your UI, you won't see the items on the right-hand side anymore, and it won't display the item slot count when looking at the structure. Instead, the dedicated storage box now contains a single item, and when you deposit items into it, we adjust the quantity of the said item. So instead of having 1800 stacks, you have one giant stack, if you will. Don't panic if you don't see items on the right-hand side, it is intentional! The items are still inside of the dedicated storage, it just works differently The good news is that you'll still be able to withdraw one regular-sized stack at a time, should you need to as the game can calculate what that number would be. As we've removed the 'items' from the storage, you can no longer interface with the remote inventory on the right-hand side. This means you can't split stacks inside of it, you can't drop items from it, etc. The team is working to mitigate some of the changes, and one thing we've done and implemented is changed the 'Transfer All' function on Dedicated Storages to ignore your weight. Previously players could 'popcorn' items from Dedicated Storages (which is spamming the 'O' key, to drop them quickly) and then pick them up with a whip, but unfortunately that no longer works - which is why we've made this QOL change. We are currently working on some additional QOL changes, which will enable players to pull out 1,5, or 10 items at a time if an entire stack isn't needed (You can press/click these buttons multiple times to get your desired quantity). We're still monitoring community feedback with the change as we knew it would be an impactful and necessary change to increase performance for dedicated servers. We also want to make sure that the structure still feels pretty good to use as we know how important it is to base/item management. We'll do our best to take in the community feedback and see whether we can act upon it! We’re also working on getting all of these changes moved over to console as soon as possible. This includes the quantity-display in different locations and fixing/improving the PlayStation version of the Dedicated Storage box so that you’ll be able to see the quantity of the items on the box itself similarly to the other platforms.

  18. Welcome to another edition of the Community Crunch! As we all catch our breath from the Fjordur launch and all the ARK news this week, we can't help to be appreciative and humbled by the ARK community helping us reach a new record-breaking CCU high! We're blown away by the support and passion of the community! This past week has been full of ARK news, from ARK 2 to the ARK: The Animated TV Series, there has been a plethora of content and information to share with the hungry ARK community. Amongst upcoming ARK content, Fjordur was released on June 12th and is available on all platforms. Find out more about Fjordur and its native inhabitants here: In terms of upcoming content, ARK: Ultimate Survivor Edition is right around the corner! The Grove Street Games team is targeting a September release and a presentation at PAX West. Find out more information and see a demo of an early dev build here: The community has been waiting for more information on ARK: The Animated TV Series, and you were treated this week with new images of the upcoming cast.

Don't miss out on this unforgettable deal! You only have until Sunday at 10AM Pacific! Due to a configuration error to Fjordur SmallTribes servers at launch, some tribes were able to exceed the maximum number of players that are allowed in a tribe. The configuration error has since been fixed. The enforcement team will begin taking action on tribes that exceed the maximum number of players on Tuesday. Please plan accordingly!

  21. Greetings Survivors! Welcome to another edition of the Community Crunch! We know you have been anxious for more information on the upcoming Fjordur launch and this week we're happy to share an upcoming weapon skin! Acting as a functional weapon skin for the TEK sword, Mjolnir packs its own special powers and empowers Survivors with supernatural might. Devastate your foes with shocking ease as you exercise control over the element of lightning. However, not every survivor will pass the test and be considered worthy to obtain the mighty Mjolnir. Will you be up to the challenge? Coming to Fjordur in June 2022! There will be no EVO event this week.

  25. Download in high-resolution Have you met our feisty and featherweight flier, Sinomacrops? In Community Crunch 282, we released the Sinomacrops dossier for the upcoming Lost Island free DLC map. Although our new friend may seem to mostly have its strength in traversal, Sinomacrops brings substantial utility for players of all types. A secondary inventory is available to players whilst it is shoulder-mounted and Sinomacrops packs a significant weight reduction on the items it's carrying for you! Who's ready to say hi to their new backpack buddy!? In addition to Sinomacrops, Amargasaurus and Dinopithecus will make it's way to Lost Island later this year. Although Dinopithecus won the community vote for the Lost Island Creature Submission, we're looking forward to doing it again later this year. What creature would you like to see added to ARK? Quality Of Life and Balance Patch We plan to release a Quality of Life and Balance pass next week on PC, and a little further down the road on console. This patch will include various QoL additions along with some important balance-changes predominantly aimed at PvP. One of the key aspects we looked at in regards to balance is the prevalence of chain-stuns/crowd control in the current PvP meta - most specifically Void Wyvern, Shadowmane, Netgun and Plant Z. We've also made balance tweaks to various creatures and items that we think will make PvP more fun and interesting.This patch also includes two newly breedable creatures! We do plan to make some more currently un-breedable creatures breedable in the future so stay posted if your favorite isn't included in this one! Last but not least, we're kicking this weekend off with a breeding EVO event and a look at some amazing community content! An ARK Evolution Event is active until Monday the 11th with the following EVO perks on all Official Servers! 2X Beeding and Imprinting 2X Taming 2X Harvesting 2X XP Creator: pterafier We are all excited to see what the Season 1 MONARKY series has in store!

  29. The Summer Bash event is winding down! Be sure to capitalize on all the fun in the sun before the event ends on July 21st! You have until July 23rd to get all of your ideas in! After July 23rd, we'll round up the most liked 10 creatures and set up a poll for voting on the forums. Click here to check out the guidelines and learn how to participate! If you're looking for an opportunity to cash out on ARK Summer Bash loot, look no further. Next week we'll be drawing winners for our giveaway tweet! Reply on the tweet with your favorite Summer Bash picture or video for a chance to win. Keep your eyes peeled on Twitter and Discord for more opportunities for some sweet Summer Bash loot. With our Genesis II map going live only recently, along with bug fixes and balance passes, we are also heavily iterating on level design as players help us find locations that were unintended as build zones that may give players building in them an unfair advantage. We have recently fixed many of these locations (including some on other maps) and more will be addressed in future updates. When building, please refer to the CoC. A good general rule of thumb is: If you need to use a pelagornis, a zipline etc to enter a location, if you can see odd textures -- basically through the mesh, you shouldn't build there and the location should be reported so we can get it fixed. Ditto for building on world barriers as outlined in the CoC. If in doubt, please submit a ticket to enforcement for clarification on a specific spot if you feel it's borderline and you aren't sure. In the past, we would announce when servers were coming down for enforcement investigation in relation to potential tribe wipes. This was primarily intended as advance notice of servers being temporarily offline but we realize that some of the community found value in seeing our enforcement team take action on entire tribes for severe cases of breaking the Code of Conduct. Due to some technical improvements, we no longer need to take servers down so that enforcement can wipe tribes but we understand that this type of transparency is desirable to the community so we will be sharing a spreadsheet of enforcement action resulting in tribe wipes that will be updated at regular intervals. If you are interested in seeing which naughty tribes were bopped by enforcement, you may want to bookmark this https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1k0L8vd1uz9ONp5QkvLGwJDfFBuUkUUwAy-QRFnRzvUY/edit?usp=sharing An ARK: EVOLUTION EVENT is active on all platforms until 7/21 as part of the Summer Bash event!

  30. Final voting for the second creature to be added to Lost Island has concluded. A few weeks ago, we created a forum where you could submit your ideas for creatures that will be added to Lost Island. From there, we narrowed it down to the top 10 up-voted submissions. Over 15,000 votes were submitted for the next Lost Island creature and only 1% difference separating the Dinopithecus and the Carcharodontosaurus! Talk about a close finish With one unannounced creature coming to Lost Island, what do you think it could be? Download in full resolution Download in full resolution I believe Dinopithecus has been changed by ARK life. This species is definitely larger than any I remember from the fossil record. And these oversized baboons show a more pack-oriented behavior than I would've expected in their kind. Whole troops will organize around an alpha, and fall apart if that alpha is slain. Though they seem to prefer a diet of fruit supplemented with the occasional bit of meat, Dinopitheci are opportunistic and will eat just about anything. They’re also excellent climbers -- I’ve seen them scramble up sheer cliff faces and leap between trees to scavenge food for their troop. Dinopitheci will bare sharp teeth and toss well-aimed handfuls of their own excrement when provoked. Their feces is what really sets this species apart -- they’ve managed to weaponize a parasite in it that disables TEK! I feel like that parasite deserves its own dossier. If you can manage to tame enough Dinopitheci , you’ll soon find yourself with a small troop at your disposal. Your mini-troop will organize around the strongest of your tames, their new alpha that can then direct them at a target with a shrieked battle-cry. No need to saddle your tamed Dinopithecus to ride it -- it will make one for you using its own tail. Just hold on tight, and it will take you straight up walls and across ziplines. In battle, your Dinopithecus will fling fecal projectiles, grenades, or a combination that I like to call EBM, for Explosive Bowel Movement. Amargasaurus is also making its grand appearance on Lost Island! For more information on Amargasaurus, be sure to check out the dossier in an earlier Community Crunch!

  32. Welcome to another edition of the Community Crunch! Fjordhawk makes its Creature Spotlight debut in the Community Crunch this week! Fjordhawk can be a useful companion if you're able to forge a bond with one by taming it. This playful species has made a game of tasks you might find daunting. If you need to fetch something, Fjordhawk can fly to nearby targets and retrieve them for you! Fjordhawk makes its appearance when Fjordur releases in June 2022!! The free DLC map, Fjordur, is right around the corner! Here's a quick summary if you're looking for the dossiers of the new creatures. Will Andrewsarchus, Desmodus, or Fjordhawk be your first tame on Fjordur? Serving as the first winner of the Community Creature Vote, Andrewsarchus makes its way to Fjordur packing an arsenal of utility! Andrewsarchus may seem sluggish while foraging for a meal, but they can move unexpectedly fast when provoked. Once tamed, its saddle will allow you to mount a minigun to the back of it! Announced as the third creature to land on Fjordur, Desmodus was the second winner of the Community Creature Vote! The original creature submission garnered a lot of attention and the rest is ARK community history! Desmodus won (39,781 votes) vs. Carcharodontosaurus (24,419 votes) in the 9th and final round! As you might imagine, Desmodus prefers to hang out in dark places, waiting for its unsuspecting prey! If you're lucky enough to tame one, you can send Desmodus to snatch up small prey or saddle up and vanish into the darkness. Looking to dive right into the action, Fjordhawk can forge close bonds with humans as wholeheartedly as any canine or primate. A tamed Fjordhawk is a surprisingly playful companion that is very capable of fetching targets that you point out. A well-trained fjordhawk can locate injured prey and communicate its find to you. There will be an ongoing EVO Event from Friday, May 20th until Monday, May 23rd. You can find the rates below: *Note that these bonuses are multiplicative of the game's standard 1x rates.

  33. Welcome to another edition of the Community Crunch! Have a long week? Well kick back and jump-start your relaxation with an EVO Event this weekend! We're nearing the Fjordur launch in June and we have yet to debut one of its native inhabitants - Fjordhawk! Looking to dive right into the action, Fjordhawk can forge close bonds with humans as wholeheartedly as any canine or primate. A tamed Fjordhawk is a surprisingly playful companion that is very capable of fetching targets that you point out. A well-trained fjordhawk can locate injured prey and communicate its find to you. Check out this post for more information on the new creatures that will arrive with Fjordur in June 2022!! It's time to announce the second set of new sponsored mods for the new year! Looking to add some spice to your ARK life? Check out some new mods! The ARK Sponsored Mod program is currently accepting applications until June 5th. Please submit your projects here. Titan is an ambitious project that would see the player exploring new worlds, taming new creatures, playing new minigames, trading and experiencing a whole custom story. Some planned features include human NPCs and a spaceship marketplace where you can find various traders of items and creatures. Check out the Titan Map Kanga mods are focused on creating a primitive gameplay experience. Cultivate your profession and work together with your tribe to overcome challenges. The mods are separated into different categories so that players can pick and choose what elements they want to play with. Check out The Kanga Mods Collection Two years ago during the annual Extra Life Fundraiser, we unveiled a new creature that would be added to the game along with Genesis 2: the Noglin. Within a matter of minutes, a Redditor combined the Noglin with the popular "Poggers" meme to create "The Poglin". Since then, the Poglin has taken on many forms, including a 3D Art version made by the very talented artist ImEnFuego. We got in on the fun added the Poglin Mask Skin into the game and history was made! We greatly appreciate community-led efforts such as the Poglin. As such, we've decided to hold a Discord competition to see who can make the best Poglin Heart Emoji. The winning emoji will be added to the Discord for all to use. Hop into our Discord to see the details of the contest! Join the ARK Discord There is an ongoing EVO Event until Monday, May 9th.

  39. Explore the soaring heights and hidden depths of ARK's newest official community map, featuring three new creatures for you to tame! Lost Island boasts 150 square kilometers of new biomes, new challenges, and mysterious ruins. Discover jungle valleys fed by giant waterfalls, build a treehouse high in the forest canopies, get down and dirty in vast mangrove swamps, dive deep underwater, brave treacherous snowy peaks, or spelunk uncharted cave systems in search of treasure… There's something here for everyone! Lost Island is the first community map released with three new creatures, and the first to include a creature chosen by the ARK community. Unleash thermal hell from atop your Amargasaurus, glide into battle with Sinomacrops at your back, or treat your enemies to a shower of Tek-disabling Dinopithecus dung! A 150 sq km map with a wide variety of unique biomes to explore Cascade Rift, a rainforest chasm carved by a flowing river and strung with thick vines Mangrove Mire, a forbidding region of flooded swamplands Castellate Peaks, a snow-capped alpine ridge that comes pre-fortified with stone fortresses This aggressive sauropod from the Cretaceous period is a force to be feared across Lost Island. Amargasaurus’ formidable thermal spines will burn or freeze anyone unfortunate enough to stray into their range. Closer still, these titans can thrash enemies to shreds with their spiked tails This perky, protective little Jurassic pterosaur can become a living glider for their master. From its perch on your shoulders, Sinomacrops will break your fall and let you soar away from trouble Voted onto the island by the community at large, this baboon bruiser defends its master with remarkable ferocity. Dinopithecus will sweep you up with its tail and carry you up sheer walls on its back. Tame a troop of them, to unleash a hail of droppings packing a parasitic payload capable of shutting down enemy Tek Check out our Lost Island Launch Details post for useful information on the Lost Island rollout! Today marks the start of the Winter Wonderland event! Survivors can stay warm in their festively decorated homes with Holiday Lights, Decorative Christmas Tree's, Wreaths, Wall-Stockings, Snowmen, and more!

  41. Happy New Year! We hope you enjoyed your Winter Wonderland and had some time to spend with your tribes (in and out of game ). Although we are continuing to focus some development efforts on Lost Island, we want don't want you to lose sight of new content that's to come in 2022! In addition to 3 new creatures launching in June with Fjordur, we'll also be releasing Carcharodontosaurus as a separate, free update later in 2022! Let's take a look at the dossiers of 2 new creatures coming to Fjordur and announce the winner of the second Community Creature Vote. Common Name: Andrewsarchus Species: Andrewsarchus mongoliensis Time: Middle Eocene Diet: Omnivore Temperament: Opportunistic Andrewsarchuses are full of surprises. These ungainly creatures seem sluggish while foraging for a meal, but they can move unexpectedly fast when provoked. Like some other whippomorphs, an Andrewsarchus will aggressively defend its territory against interlopers its size or smaller on sight. With some distance between you, it might be possible to dodge a charging Andrewsarchus, since they don’t exactly turn on a dime. Just don’t expect a river or lake to protect you from one. If its feet can touch bottom, Andrewsarchus will barely be slowed by deep water. These scavengers will tear into just about anything if hungry, but they do seem to have a sweet tooth. I've seen Andrewsarchuses pacified by honey and sweet fruit. Once tamed, Andrewsarchus is a reliably fast beast of burden, as long as you don’t need it to take any corners at full speed. Its density in water also makes it ideal for searching the ocean floors for pearls. Andrewsarchus is probably most useful for light reconnaissance, once you mount a minigun to the back of its saddle. It can't absorb as much damage as some of the ARKs' larger creatures, but it's great for harassing them. Some say a gun-saddled Andrewsarchus reminds them of a puma, a walrus, or even a warthog, but I don't see it. Common Name: Fjordhawk Species: Parabuteo veðrfölnir Time: Mid-late Anthropocene Diet: Omnivore Temperament: Calculating Most of the creatures I’ve encountered here have endured thanks to their great size, strength, or ferocity. But the fjordhawk gets by on its wits and by scavenging. The bird also seems to have an almost preternatural ability to predict and avoid danger. Fjordhawks follow predators (and survivors) from on high, watching for their moment to swoop in and snatch up an easy meal. Tamed fjordhawks are surprisingly playful, and their favorite game is fetch. Indulge your bird with this play and a bit of patience, and you’ll reap the rewards. Just point out a target, and your fjordhawk will fly off to retrieve it for you. A well-trained fjordhawk can locate injured prey and communicate its find to you. These clever birds will bond with humans as wholeheartedly as any canine or primate, in a way uniquely suited to this time and place. If you should meet with some grave misfortune, your fjordhawk will immediately fly off with as many of your belongings as it can carry. As soon as you’re respawned by the ARK, your friend will track you down and return your equipment to you! With over 60K votes, Desmodus Draculae wins the second Community Creature Vote! We're looking forward to sharing a concept and dossier in the coming weeks! if you're interested in seeing exactly how the voting went, check out the link below to see the results. Fjordur Community Creature Vote Results Thank you for participating in the #ARKXmasLoot giveaway! We'll be giving away over 300 prizes!!

  43. Download in high resolution As we wrap up what has been an exciting and busy year for ARK and a challenging year for all of us, we'd like to take a moment to thank you all for your ongoing support and express gratitude for our team and our players. We hope that you felt optimistic more often than not this year. That you found joy in unexpected places. That 2021 gave you opportunities to rest and take a break from the challenges present in the world over the past couple of years. A special thanks goes to the varied communities that bring diversity and inclusion to the playerbase: our non-english speaking players - nod to the Arkadia crew and the spanish speaking community - Hololive and the ever-joyful Japanese community, our large German and French communities and their wonderful content creators, the amazing LGBTQ communities and creators, creativity within the community as seen in the wonderful ARKitect events or the #danceoffs on social media. Congratulations to Syntac on his 1mil subs and Youtube Gold Play Button and Nexxuz who was nominated for the ESLAND Awards in the category of best series of the year! It has also been a joy to see newer creators establish their own communities and it is, as ever, humbling to be able to facilitate that in some way through our game. We can't mention everyone but rest assured we see you and what you bring and it means the world! ARK wouldn't be where it is without our players and our talented team and we wouldn't be looking forward to ARK 2 and ARK: The Animated Series without your passion and support. May the Holiday Season bring you joy, time to relax and a moment to reflect. We wish you the most amazing Holidays and a Happy New Year! #PoglinGang4Lyf The Studio Wildcard Team Download in high resolution Common Name: Fjordhawk Species: Parabuteo veðrfölnir Time: Mid-late Anthropocene Diet: Omnivore Temperament: Calculating Most of the creatures I’ve encountered here have endured thanks to their great size, strength, or ferocity.

Just point out a target, and your fjordhawk will fly off to retrieve it for you. A well-trained fjordhawk can locate injured prey and communicate its find to you. These clever birds will bond with humans as wholeheartedly as any canine or primate, in a way uniquely suited to this time and place. If you should meet with some grave misfortune, your fjordhawk will immediately fly off with as many of your belongings as it can carry. As soon as you’re respawned by the ARK, your friend will track you down and return your equipment to you! Fjordhawk will land on ARK with the upcoming free DLC map, Fjordur! Voting is now open and the time has come for you to cast your vote for the creature you want to see in the upcoming free DLC map: Fjordur. The Top 10 creatures were selected from the top 10 upvoted creatures during the creature submission process. Follow the link to see the finalists and cast your vote! Fjordur Creature Vote We've made some changes to the creature voting process and we've invited Craig to give a summary: Hey there, Survivors! CraigBrownCraigBrown here to chat about the upcoming community vote for Fjordur’s third new Creature. I’m very excited about this, because I have *very* strong feelings on the way the previous vote went (some good, some bad). First of all, I’m so happy that so much of the community came out and made your voices heard. Yall cast thousands of votes, and it came down to the last few minutes of the vote. My creature of choice may have lost (hard), but I’m always happy to see the community get this involved. I’m a big fan of Ranked Choice Voting (RCV). I think it’s a better system than the traditional “whoever gets the most votes wins”... especially when the results are available in real-time. The inevitable result of a traditional vote is always the same: Two candidates pull ahead of the pack, becoming the frontrunners Anyone who hasn’t voted yet sees the two frontrunners as the only options, lest they “throw away their vote” Instead of voting for the candidate they like most, they vote for the frontrunner they dislike the least And the result is usually someone that only a minority are actually happy with. On top of all that, live-results further exacerbate the problem. If someone likes the Penguin, but sees that it’s in 5th place (out of 10), they’re going to think that voting for the Penguin is throwing their vote away… even though that’s what they actually want to vote for. This is where RCV comes in. With RCV, you rank all of the options from “want the most” (rank 1) to “want the least” (rank 10). Then we do the calculating… We add up the highest-ranked candidate from all the ballots. If any candidate has >50% of the vote, they win! If no candidate won, we remove the bottom candidate from the race. Then, we cross that name off of every ballot Now that all the ballots are updated, go back to Step 1 (Technically, there are a bunch of versions of RCV… but instant run-off is the easiest to implement, easiest to understand, and gives very good results) The best thing about RCV is that it’s always best to vote for the candidates you actually want! Even if they don’t win, your vote isn’t wasted. Your second, or possibly third or fourth or fifth votes will still get counted. Community feedback from the Lost Island vote made it clear that while the community appreciated having their voices heard, we think it’s important to improve the process to let more of you be heard. In the spirit of open communication, once the vote closes and we announce the winner, we will make the final data available publicly (anonymously, of course). We are confident that RCV is the best way forward, and look forward to seeing you cast your votes. CraigBrownCraigBrown Lead Designer, ARK2 Our first big release of the year, ARK: Genesis Part 2., was the final chapter of the ARK: Survival Evolved story is by far the most intricate and ambitious expansion we’ve yet created. ARK: Genesis Part 2 completes the eons-spanning story of ARK: Survival Evolved! Everything that your tribe has built, tamed, and fought for has led to this final challenge. We truly hope you felt it was a fitting story conclusion to the journey you’ve taken with us in ARK over the past 6 years! This year we held our first-ever community creature vote for Lost Island. ARK community members submitted hundreds of entries filled with creative concept art and gameplay ideas. During the submission process, the community continually voted on their favorite ideas. Dinopithecus emerged victorious after rounding up the top 10 submissions! Voting is underway for the next community-voted creature! Go check out the Top 10 creature submissions and vote on your favorite concept for the upcoming free DLC map Fjordur! In 2021 we launched ARK on Stadia™ with cross-play, enabling you to team up with thousands of PC players online or enjoy a solo Jurassic experience if you prefer to rough it out alone. From Love Evolved to Winter Wonderland, 2021 saw no shortage of in-game ARK events and unique skins. The T-Rex inflatable costume went "ARK viral" as it spread in pictures and videos throughout social media. ARK: Ultimate Survivor Edition launched in the latter part of 2021 including everything the ARK franchise has to offer. ARK: Ultimate Survivor Edition includes ARK: Survival Evolved, along with: Scorched Earth, Aberration, Extinction, and Genesis Parts 1 & 2. All updated and optimized with every improvement made since the launch of the base game, adding up to thousands of hours of gameplay! As an additional bonus, this compilation also includes original soundtracks containing the music of ARK as composed by Gareth Coker. This seventh year of participating in GameDay with ExtraLife puts us well over $450K raised and we couldn't have done it without the ARK community! We are grateful for our generous, supportive players, partners & sponsors, & the opportunity to help facilitate this endeavor. Lost Island is the most recent Official Map that comes from the ARK modding community. Lost Island boasts 150 sq km of exploration and is the first map to include a community-voted creature. It's a pleasure to close out the year and holiday season by getting Lost Island and 3 new creatures into the hands of more ARK survivors!

  47. We've rounded up the top 10 upvoted creatures from the community for the upcoming free DLC map, Lost Island. You'll have until July 30th, 00:00 UTC to cast your vote for the creature you want to see in Lost Island. Follow the link below to participate: Top 10: Lost Island Creature Voting A huge thanks to the ARK community for all the Summer Bash content that was shared over social media. We had a blast sharing all your images and videos around internally. Below are the winners from the Summer Bash Twitter giveaway. @RikerPlays @wilderbeast74 @Lalicore @N_Life93 @NaturalCauzes @LocalSquirrel28 @rencontabero @poison666666 @Ryan69586742 @YoutubeGingie @WilliamColvin2 @XxStevieLad87xX @EgoSilentium Congratulations to all the winners! We will reach out via Twitter with information on redemption. In an effort to consolidate all the useful information from the community, we've made some changes to our bug reports section. Console and PC players will now use the same bug reporting process. Instead of relying on multiple sources to identify bugs, the QA team can focus their efforts on one consolidated, well-maintained source. When reporting a bug it's very helpful to our QA team to include a repro (the steps required to reproduce the bug). With a detailed step-by-step instruction the person investigating will understand how to reproduce the issue. Listed steps should be as detailed as needed but also as simple as possible. Ideally, your bug should be reproducible. It's great if your steps are robust enough to reproduce the bug without any ambiguity. If it's not reproducible every time you can still file a bug mentioning the periodic nature of the bug. Additionally supporting information like video evidence, is often needed to take action on your request. Take a look at our guide on submitting video evidence when creating a support ticket. Bug Reports: https://survivetheark.com/index.php?/bugs/ There will be no EVO event this weekend. Creator: everynightxRIOT Take a look at an unreleased Godzilla mod with everynightxRIOT.
