  1. Eggcellent Adventure 5 Beginning Tuesday April 7th until April 21st, survivors will be able to experience our annual Eggcellent Adventure event on PC, Xbox, and PS4! While much of the world is at home, we wanted to give you some new adventures to hunt down. During Eggcellent Adventure 5, survivors will be able to collect special "Bunny Eggs" across the ARK from wild Bunny Dodo's. These Bunny Eggs can be painted or used in special Cooking Pot recipes to craft new holiday-themed item skins such as the Spear and C4 skin, as well as 10 returning skins. Similar to past Eggcellent Adventure events, Bunny Oviraptor's will drop festive Dino Candy. Collect the candy and feed it to your tames for a special festive effect! To top it all off, wild creatures roaming the ARKs will also find themselves sporting some eggcellent colors! For those that are looking to expand their chibi collection, you're in luck! You'll be able to collect the past chibi's we've introduced with the addition of 6 new chibi pets by placing and cracking event-themed eggs from wild bunny dodos.

Similar to last year, we are bringing back the community egg-painting competition. After you've found a Dodo egg, place the egg down on the ground and take out your paintbrush and dyes. You'll be able to paint select regions on the egg as well as free-hand paint it with the brush to paint any design on it. Have fun and get creative! There will be three competitions with a prize for the winner of $100! In-Game Painting Real-life Egg Painting For the in-game egg painting, players are expected to paint their own designs and downloading templates or images to use is not allowed. For the real-life egg painting, we're looking for you and your tribemates to get together and paint some eggs in real life that somehow reflect the world of ARK! Screenshot or photo quality won't be taken into consideration but try to get a picture that best shows off your egg. The entries will be judged by our community team.

  6. On Saturday, March 21st, the machine running the following servers experienced a critical hardware failure that corrupted the save files. EU-PVP-Aberration-PrimPlusCrossArk3 EU-OfflineRaidProtection-Aberration-CrossArk10 Unfortunately, the earliest backups that we have available are from March 17th 2020. What this means for you: This server will be rolled back approximately 4 days. Our deepest apologies to our survivors on these servers. This is a rare occurrence and we will work to prevent these disruptions in the future.
  7. We have now implemented the wipe of these items across the entirety of our Official PC and Xbox PvP Networks. It will be coming to PS4 with our next console update. There was some deliberation internally during the decision making process as we’re aware this measure will affect those who acquired these items in a legitimate way. Whilst we’re sympathetic towards this, those of you who continued to play fair were also subject to unfair gameplay when attacking or defending against those Tribes who took advantage of game exploits. It was a difficult choice but we’re confident it is the right one for the long term health of Official PvP. We’ll be using this “soft reset” in order to further improve PvP balance via continued tweaks and adjustments along with collecting further data on those we suspect may have used exploits to their advantage. This measure, along with the previous bolster to our Mesh Detection Systems are just some of the ways we will continue to make ARK Official PvP more optimal for our PvP community. Sincerely, The Wildcard Team

  9. Conquest Servers Return! Classic PvP was a Snail Games initiative to shake up the current PvP meta. Conquest servers offer a similar player experience which focuses on large-scale PvP that may be appealing for those looking for an alternative to the popular mega-tribe meta. Conquest servers are being re-introduced by Snail Games and to kick-start this initiative, our existing Classic PvP servers will be wiped and re-purposed for isolated Classic PvP clusters on Thursday 3/19 at 1PM EST. Conquest servers will launch with transfers enabled but Extinction transfers will be disabled for 30 days following the launch (items & dinos). Conquest Breakdown Experience gain, taming, gathering, breeding, hatching, and raising rates have been doubled compared to our standard Official Servers (2x). Tribes are set to 25 players max. Tribe alliances are disabled, though informal alliances are allowed. Servers have a maximum player count of 100. There will be 32 servers in total on the Conquest cluster. Server transfers are enabled. Conquest servers are unaffected by Evolution Events. Included Maps (Per Region NA/EU) 3 Island 3 Center 3 Ragnarok 3 Valguero 1 Scorched 1 Aberration 1 Extinction 1 Genesis As we reintroduce Conquest servers, we'll be looking for your valuable input throughout the duration. As these servers exist to shake up the PvP playstyle, it's possible that they may undergo change and seasonal wipes as the mode matures.

In the meantime, we have a number of tweaks we'll be deploying to Genesis in the form of bug fixes and quality of life enhancements over the coming months. We are planning for a patch Wednesday to address some of the more immediate issues following the Genesis launch. Enforcement Update The Enforcement Team has been monitoring the overall health of the Official Network and have new updates to share with the community.

  13. Introducing Crystal Isles We are very excited to announce that the one-of-a kind experience of the ISO: Crystal Isles map will be coming to PC, XBOX, and PlayStation this Summer! Crystal Isles is a stunning, other-worldly map filled with a vibrant display of teeming life scattered amidst its varied landscapes, awe inspiring floating islands and breathtaking biomes. Ever since Crystal Isles launched as a mod in 2016, its fantasy appeal has secured its place as one of the most popular maps within the ARK community and we can't wait to bring it to players as a fully supported free DLC. The Crystal Isles DLC will also launch resplendent with a new real-world dinosaur to tame! What do you think the new dinosaur may be? In other news, we've been itching to share that we'll be performing a TLC Pass 3 in the Summer of 2020! This TLC pass will see some of our classic creatures get some new love via visual and functional upgrades. As we move closer to the release of the new Crystal Isles DLC and our much-awaited TLC Pass 3 we'll share more details and information with our players. New Sponsored Mods Dead Survival Tired of dinosaurs? Of course you aren’t, but sometimes we do want a little change in our diet. Dead Survival does just that, you can swap out the wildlife of the game with some … not… quite life? Zombies… I’m trying to say you can have zombies. Lots and lots of zombies. Hordes of them even. Check out the Dead Survival Mod Roleplay Additional Items RP communities have been a long time aspect of ARK, but sometimes our core structures can feel a bit insubstantial when you are trying to build a set for acting in. Roleplay Additional Items can add a lot more flourish to your locations from lighting structures and gear, to new taxidermy stations! Check out the Roleplay Additional Items Mod ArkVenture Park I’m pretty sure we have all dreamed of having our own backyard water slides and roller coasters. (Zen may have actually tried at one point, and failed… obviously) But now you can do just that in your base. Build that mine-cart roller-coaster that plows through your living room or a water-slide to the lava pools out back! Check out the ArkVenture Park Mod Castles, Keeps, and Forts: Remastered CKF development went dormant for a little while while the author went on a break. But it’s back, and getting a face-lift. The author is taking what they learned over the years and working on a remastered CKF (The original is still available). So far it’s looking great! Check out the Castles, Keeps, and Forts Mod On The Horizon Primitive+ Primitive+ remains a priority. We have engineering teams working on the complications from the Genesis update. We will keep you informed with any significant progress Genesis Part I Update We're continuing to work on Genesis bugs and balance and we plan to keep up with the rapid iterations. Thank you for your reports and feedback. EVO Event There will be no EVO event this upcoming weekend. Until next time!

  14. Genesis Launch Status Update We expect PC and PS4 players will able to begin downloading Genesis at 6.30PM PST We're in the process of getting non-Genesis Xbox servers updated and online We'll keep our Xbox players posted in regards to when publishing is complete
  15. As we prepare for launch at 4 PM PST tomorrow, we have some important news for our survivors in the Asian region. Immediately following the Genesis launch, PS4 survivors in our Asian regions will only be able to access PS4 official servers in the Asian region for a short period. We don't expect this exclusion to extend beyond 72 hours, but we will keep you updated with any future developments. You will also not be able to join any un-official servers that have updated to a Genesis build due to the content mismatch and the lack of a region-specific Genesis update.
  16. ARK: GENESIS PART 1 - AVAILABLE NOW Continue your quest for ultimate survival and unlock a whole new chapter in the saga of ARK: Survival Evolved with the ARK: Genesis Part I! Waking up within a virtual simulation, the ultimate task of survival lies ahead with challenges that have yet to be seen! ARK: Genesis represents a new, story-oriented beginning in ARK’s epic saga of survival. With HLN-A, an in-game robotic companion, you must overcome the simulation’s rigorous tests. Uncovering the secrets of this ominous landscape will be no easy task. To pass the simulations test you will need to explore, build, tame and fight but also you must adapt just as the environment around you does. EXPLORE LETHAL LANDSCAPES ARK: Genesis presents a unique challenge with diverse landscapes and deceptively beautiful biomes. Put your survival skills to the test while traversing chilling mountain peaks, treading through the imposing alien bog, drifting in low-gravity on the surface of an alien moon, or submerging yourself into deep undersea trenches. Mastering each biome requires planning, preparation, smarts, and the ability to think fast on your feet. You never know when you’ll find yourself trapped in a whirlpool, escaping a sudden avalanche, or dodging a volcanic meteor shower. The biomes you encounter aren’t just trying to kill you, they are preparing you for the challenges and missions that await. GEAR UP AND BUILD UP As you make your journey through the simulation, being equipped with the right weapons will be more important than ever. With new threats lurking in Genesis, combo-capable plasma claws and remote-guided cruise missiles will help you keep your competitive edge. Tools like the fishing net and the mining drill allow you to be efficient on-the-go while vehicles like the hover-skiff may reduce your on-the-go time. Interactive structural elements such as pressure plates, alarm systems, jump pads, and ocean platforms will be fundamental while establishing yourself in the unique habitats the biomes offer. Whether you’re a go-it-alone survivalist, a weapon-making warmonger, or a base-building architect, ARK: Genesis has a crafting project suited for you. CONQUER EVERY MISSION HLN-A will be an extra set of ears and eyes as you embark on missions within the simulation. The simulation itself isn’t perfect, so you can earn extra credit (and experience) by fixing the glitches scattered all throughout the world. Through HLN-A, you will be provided a wide array of missions at varying difficulty levels to complete at your own convenience. You may find yourself hunting and tracking powerful bosses, speeding to the finish line in dino races, tearing through swarms of enemies with the aid of power-ups, escorting vulnerable baby creatures to their parents, or playing a casual game of Dodo-Basketball. HUNT AND TAME NEW CREATURES The environments may be forbidding, but they’re nothing compared to the new creatures who call ARK: Genesis home. Take flight on hyperspace-capable space whale, swing from trees on a web-spinning spiderlike beast, build on sea turtles the size of islands, admire the cute-but-deadly shapeshifters, or utilize lava lizards that act as living forges - the choice is yours. Master the simulation, and test yourself against a mysterious new boss… the likes of which ARK has never seen before WILL YOU PASS THE TEST? ARK: Genesis takes your story in an all-new direction — and your skill determines your success. Everything is turned up to the highest setting: the challenges, the dangers...and the vast rewards. Only the toughest and smartest survivors will pass all of the simulation’s many tests. Will you be one of them?

  18. Update Converning NA-PVP-XboxOfficial-TheIsland54 Unfortunately, we have some unfortunate news to share with survivors on NA-PVP-XboxOfficial-TheIsland54. Recently, the machine housing these servers experienced a critical hardware failure. This means that the most recent save data on this machine was lost.

  21. In an effort to optimize and increase game performance, we've identified areas where the amount of available memory can be increased. We've discovered that event items, past and current, are using valuable game resources that are needed in our optimization effort. Due to this, Valentines Chocolates and Valentines Candies will be removed following the Love Evolved event on 2/25.
  22. PS4 Crashes on Ragnarok We are continuing to investigate reports on PS4 crashes as a result of the Love Evolved patch (while playing on Ragnarok). We will update you when we have more information. Thank you for your patience.
  23. Legacy Official PvP Server Backups Hey Survivors, You can now download the save files from the recent Legacy PVE server closure. Please not these backups will only contain data for the most recent migration.The PC save files are available at the following link: https://survivetheark.com/index.php?/server-backups/ For PC Players If you're wanting to use the save data in singleplayer follow these steps (Depending on the map, Step 2 will vary): Step 1. Extract the zip into a folder of your choice. Step 2. Navigate to C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\ARK\ShooterGame\Saved\SavedArksLocal {alternatively: TheCenterSavedArksLocal, RagnarokSavedArksLocal, ScorchedEarth_PSavedArksLocal}. If the folder does not exist, create it. Step 3. Copy the files from the unzipped folder in Step 1 and paste them into the directory above. NOTE: This will override any save data you have in this folder already. Specifically your character and map save so back those up if those exist already. Step 4. Launch your game and enjoy the nostalgia! Note: You can also do this using a hosted server. You may need to check with your host for the correct save location. For Console Players If you are on console, you can host any Legacy save using Nitrado. In your Nitrado panel, navigate on the left-hand side to Tools > Official Import. From there you can choose the backup save for your Official server. For the full list of servers found in these backups:
  24. Anti-Mesh System Enhancements Last week we deployed upgrades to the anti-mesh system that significantly reduced the amount of meshing that is occurring on the Official Network. It’s been instrumental in creating a fair playing experience and decreasing the amount of meshing, as we are seeing an overall 90% reduction. We truly believe, with your help, we’ll be able to move the needle to 99%! The first iteration of the anti-mesh system only included detection which enabled us to collect critical data needed to upgrade the system to take action on those who were identified to be meshing. The wide-scale deployment of the second iteration last week allowed us to reduce the edge cases and false-positives that resulted from upgrading the system to take action. We’re now introducing an upgrade to the action-taking capabilities of the anti-mesh system that is much more aggressive than the prior version we introduced last week. Instances in which you may have been teleported before will be less forgiving now. This upgrade has been tested on multiple maps and across a large number of servers. After fixing the few edge cases that resulted from the upgrade, we are now confident in widening the scope of servers to ensure the system is ready for the larger network. It is possible that you may find yourself in situations where the system has not accounted for and we're asking for your assistance in reporting them. Your tribe log will contain important information about any actions taken by the anti-mesh system. That information is useful in determining if it was a legitimate action and will be utilized to make further improvements to the detection logic. We've created a thread for you to file your reports: We will be vigilant in reviewing your feedback and responding to cases in which the anti-mesh system acts incorrectly. With your help and cooperation we believe we can eliminate meshing, an exploit that ruins the gaming experiences for many survivors across Official and Unofficial Networks. EVO Event Survivors on all platforms will be receiving a special Evolution Event perk this weekend! It will be active from Friday the 31st of Jan at 1 PM EST until Monday the 3rd of Feb at 3 PM EST. All Official Servers across each platform will be undergoing this evolutionary change which includes: 2x Harvesting Rates 2x Taming Rates 2x EXP Rates Until next time!
