  1. This is weird. I don't know why youre assuming I have something to gain by lying about it or why i'd spend my time lying about it. The tweet you posted said that Aaron Greenburg is working to bring Ark 2 Exclusively to Microsoft platforms. Why would Aaron Greenburg, a MS employee, work to bring it to Playstation? This is how marketing works. Its intentionally misleading. We have seen it time and time again. I showed you multiple examples that you ignored to prove that im not just getting this idea from nowhere. I dont know what to tell you. As of right now, itll launc
  2. I've seen the tweet. Its just stupid to pretend this didn't JUST happen. How many other games has MS rolled out as "Launch exclusives" and then they were on Playstation? People literally joke about this regularly. Its marketing words that they use during shows. It doesn't really matter to me either way. I just need this to come to Steam so I dont have to deal with the god awful MS store and make use of mods. You understand that releasing doesn't have the same meaning as launching right? Ark released on PS4 but it launched on Xbox first. I guess we can just wait and se
  3. I think you missed the point I was trying to make. Im not arguing the fact that its LAUNCHING on Xbox Exclusively. Show me where it says its RELEASING exclusively on Xbox. Ark Survival Evolved was an Xbox LAUNCH exclusive as well. It was the exact same story.
  4. I am almost certain that "launching exclusively" is a marketing term because it seems purposefully misleading. Launching exclusively is not the same as releasing exclusively. Every time people on twitter ask devs about it, they parrot out the same line. They probably aren't supposed to talk about PS5 being developed afterward or risk breaking an aspect of their agreement with MS. I could be wrong in the end but I have yet to see any dev confirm that this game is NOT RELEASING on PS5. I have just seen the same smooth brain response of "launching exclusively" on Xbox...despite also
  5. I'd rather have the options than not. You have the option to play on official servers or vanilla unofficial servers. I enjoy somewhat boosted servers but im not into the crazy 50-100x tek heavy servers. Im still glad the sweaty kids have a place to go. Go harvest advanced rifle bullets off of trees if you're into that. It doesn't affect me at all. The devs direction is whatever keeps the population higher and the DLC moving. I'd love to see more emphasis on primitive stuff with buffs for base defense. I'd lose all the tek tier stuff if we could get a more robust part list for maki
  6. They don't have to be groundbreaking to make the game more enjoyable. Also i've seen plenty of full/nearly full servers running 10+ mods so many people seem to disagree about the value of workshop mods. The extra turrets aren't supposed to be some wild idea. Its more like an easy layup that Wildcard missed. The same goes with classic flyers with an adjustable max speed option. Still, I hope the initial release focuses on primitive survival.
  7. As much as it sucks to accept, Ark is a house built on sand. The big issues that we've dealt with for years wont be fixed because the amount of work it would take to fix doesn't make sense when compared to a new game built with UE5 also all the extra performance based issues related to the constraints of Jaguar cpus, 8 gb ram, and roughly 7870 gpus. Ark exploded and the team was ill-equipped to handle it at first. As the team grew, the scope grew, content kept releasing. Its a mess now. Look at how much time people have spent with it despite the issues. We need a clean slate. Its
  8. They should look to some of the Steam workshop mods for ideas. One mod has several new types of turrets, tranq/Cannon/rocket/sniper/etc.. Ideally each turret type has a limit per zone based on damage. Other mods tweak things to be less OP or roll back changes that a ton of people didnt agree with like flyer speed modifier. The flyer mod topped out at 180% speed which I thought was a great compromise over removing it altogether. One major way to shift gameplay from turret spam cubes to actual strategy based defense would be to add a redstone style system. Its kinda hilarious that
  9. I REALLY REALLY hope its not a movie. Its the VIDEOGAME awards. I understand Tom Holland is gonna be a presenter, based on the Uncharted movie but I want a "biggest thing ever" announcement to be about the game. I have ZERO interest in an Ark movie.
  10. Well, ok I guess we do have power. We need repeaters, comparators, pistons, pulleys, etc.
  11. I'd kill for a Minecraft level redstone system. Imagine all the kill traps and automated base parts we could make.
  12. Yeah let me know that Ark 2 is a thing for late 2021 and then drop full crossplay servers on me for Ark right now!
  13. I would imagine the earliest we would see an Ark 2 released would be fall 2021. Far enough out to not cannibalize their own product.
  14. While Atlas overall is kinda terrible, it does introduce a couple things I'd love for Ark to implement. Give me that mega-server 100 players(or more) per block all connected and the ablity to travel freely between them. Also, the building in general is better in Atlas, the dock and ship building is great, the quick toggle between walls/doorframes/windows system is better.
  15. I feel like its at the point where theyve added so much content and patched around so many bugs that the only chance to fix things is to have a new starting point. I'd like to see massive changes that we wont get through a regular update. New dinos/maps sprinkled in is wearing thin. People clearly still want to play Ark 5 years later but now we have better GPUs coming out and new consoles. The near future looks ripe for a 2nd try. I started out playing Ark on PS4 when it launched and that was the most fun i've had gaming in the last 5 years. It lasted roughly 10 months and ive sp
