  13. It's that time of year again, ARK: Survival Evolved is celebrating it's 4th birthday today! It's been FOUR YEARS since we first entered into Early Access on Steam. Hard to believe it's been that long, isn't it? From humble beginnings waking up naked on the beach to saving planet Earth from giant roaming Titans, it feels like we have done it all. And we have loved each and every moment of development, meeting you at events, hosting streams, and watching your content. Thank you so much for all the support you've shown us over the last 4 years. The past year has been a busy one for us.

Once again it is time to remove some of our lower population legacy ARK servers on PC, Xbox, and PS4 from our Official legacy network.

Here is a quick breakdown on how this process works: Taking Down Low Pop Servers With calculations based on sustained player-count as well as popularity of game mode we will be removing lower population legacy servers, most of w

  17. We said we would have some more news for you about the mod contest this month, and that time is now! I'm happy to introduce you to our new Contest section of the website: https://survivetheark.com/index.php?/contests/ If we're holding any big contests, you will probably find them right here going forward! Now specific to the mod contest, if you happened to see it all those months ago, there was quite a bit of discussion that occurred during the last one about the process and how it could be done better. We already mentioned that we've split the contest into two categories this

Over a month ago we announced we were temporarily disabling our decay timer on our official servers. This was done in order to allow for our customer support to successfully reunite players with their tribes, bases, and tamed creatures after an issue caused some players characters to be deleted. Our customer support has been able to address many of these concerns that were as a result of the incident last month, and

  23. Hello Survivors! Last year we held a great modding contest where 61 mod authors competed for a grand prize of $15,000. Valguero, Automated ARK, Gunsmoke County, and Primal Fear took home some serious cash prizes. We're happy to announce that after spending some time working on the process and system for managing the contests, that they will be returning on May 31st! This time around we'll be splitting the contest into two categories for mods and maps. Each category will be judged separately and have its own prize pool.

  25. Hey Survivors! Welcome to the latest edition of the Community Crunch! On: Memory Optimizations! There are times when gameplay engineers make improvements to game systems that are aimed specifically at increasing performance as we have done in our recent PC patch.
