  1. 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

  3. 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

  5. Legacy Server Removal Earlier this year we reached out to find out what type of servers you're interested in and what legacy players enjoyed about their experience. As we move closer to the release of Genesis and another year of ARK content, we have been monitoring the Official Network server population and Legacy servers. Due to the current legacy server population, we will be closing all PvP legacy servers on January 28th. We've read the feedback from legacy players and know that you've invested time and created memories on these servers. Immediately followin
  6. We've just pushed a new Linux binary onto the Steam Depot, so if you get that update you should be good to go. Most of our Official Network should be online now, just getting the final batch of these Asia servers online. Thanks for your patience folks!
  7. You should start to see more servers coming online guys, we're still working through the deployment.
  8. Yup, servers are redeploying, they'll be back online shortly. Make sure to restart your steam clients, as this is a new major version so you'll have to download the patch to be able to see the servers
  9. Hey Survivors! With this latest major version change, we've been able to upgrade key aspects of our Official Network. However for this upgrade to be complete, we'll have to cluster-off the PC Official Asia servers due to a network incompatibility (regional firewalls). On Monday, the 11th of November at 10 AM PST downloads into or uploads out of Asia Servers will be region restricted. What This Means For You Players on PC Asia Servers will only be able to upload to or download from other PC Asia Servers, this includes characters, creatures, and items. Every other region wi
